When ever i open my webcam its showing camera is not installed or camera is occupied by another user

If it says, camera is occupied by another user, open Task Manager, look for Your Webcam Software, maybe CyberLink, end process. If it says, webcam not installed, open Device Manager, Imaging Devices, Is it listed? Enabled? Working properly? Driver needs updating? You can find the original driver for your Acer webcam here, select your OS:

Webcam is not installed or it is occupied by another other users


please try this

do to device manager
scroll down to imaging devices
if you can find the webcam
un install it
then restart the laptop
hopefully windows will on startup install it correctly for you
