When you installed the cam an OEM program was loaded at least for access to settings. Changing your laptop does nothing to prevent that program. My Philips webcam has a little program called VLounge that enables me to turn it on or off. If that program, which may only be considered a 'process' by Windows prevents me from using the webcam with Microsoft, Adobe or Cyberlink video programs. If you really can't find anything else running then uninstall the webcam and pay attention to what is being installed when you reinstall it.

Why my computer keeps telling me forced shut down


Probably because there are programs still running in the background. Even though you have not opened some programs many will be running as a matter of course.
This is very common - and you have nothing to worry about

My dell inspiron keeps freezing and the CPU usage is showing 100%. I ran Spybot and nothing came up. I have Norton Internet Security antivirus but it is showing nothing. Tried to run a defrag but it...


At this juncture your best bet is to run the msconfig command and see what is running in the background and using up all of your resources.

Antivirus programs are wicked for screwing up a machine, especially Norton. Dump the sucker - might even have to get a special program to accomplish this.

If that does not do it then just backup your files and restore your machine to its as new condition using the software that came with your unit.

Cam is locked by another application


Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a previous program even if you have exited that program correctly.
Before opening your chat program unplug the cam from the USB port for a couple of seconds to re-boot the webcam software.
If its built-in you will have to re-start the computer - use a keyboard shortcut or disable/enable the cam from the Imaging Folder in the Device Manager.
Check the camera source as well - you may have other imaging software loaded that can cause conflicts

Cyberware took over my computer


go to www.filehippo.com and get Malwarebytes Malware remover. install and run, perform a quick scan and when it is done, view the files it shows you and choose to delete all. reboot. Also, go to www.download.com and download Revo Uninstaller. Run it, it will list all programs currently on the drive that can be deleted. Highlight a program you want to delete, click uninstall and choose option 4. Click yes to get rid of everything it lists. It will create a restore point everytime it does something. No need to back up anything even though it asks.

Webcam won't work even though i have installed program with cd


Hi Jenniferlinn, desperate mom:)

I agree with them, sometimes things lika that happens, and the latest bid windows update, the SP3, messed up a lot of computers.

I still dont understand why you talking to KODAK when you have an VIBRA CAM, vibra cam is a creative cam, KODAK has nothing to do with that cam as far as i know.
I took the liberty and looked on creative for your cam and there are none updates for that model, its the drivers on the cd you have that you shall use. This is what creative syas on their site for the Vibra Cam:

"Cameras which do not link to drivers or applications currently do not have an update available on the download site. Check the installation CD supplied with the camera for operating systems drivers and applications available"

So my friend and desparate mom, dont talk to KODAK anymore, thats waste of time, if you need to talk to a tecnitian, talk to the people on creative, bur im surre they will give you the same answer as i did.

If you dont mind, i suggest you buy a new cam, they are cheap and they are up to date so to say. Your children will be happyer whit a new cam that gives them a better resolution, a better oicture and more easy to handle then that old one you have.


I wish you all luck desprate mom:)
Nic

If you neer further help, dont hesitate, just ask me and i will do my best to help you

Acer orbi cam not working


Best is to do system restore.System restore is under
Program--accessories-->system tools.
With system restore you can go back to previous date your cam was working fine.Its just like a time machine.So try to back to the previous date and check out which date make the cam work.
Give it sometime to config and maybe it have to restart your computer.
Best of luck,takecare.
