I have had my Y510 for 5 weeks. Last week I began getting a message that said:Failed to get data from camera.The camera may have been unplugged or busy whenever I starting my computer.
At the time no program was running that was using the webcam and I hadn't disable it. I uninstalled and reinstalled several times and it didn't fix the problem so, I downloaded and installed Veriface III. Now the webcam image is upside down and doesn't work in the VideoChat program that I used it in previously. My OS is Vista.
I have a HP ENVY m6 Notebook PC, whem I used skype video call, the image of video is upside down, and I can not find any way to change the webcam hp truevision driver on Windows 8. How to make the video image back to normal?
my laptop is HP 6107 TX and i have an integrated webcam, which worked the first few days after I bought it, but after that the webcam screen just shows plain black. But the strange thing is if I bring a luminous object, like a phone screen near it it shows a green image of the phone on the screen :
I have an XT3 with the built-in webcam. When I use the tablet in portrait mode, the webcam image stays oriented for landscape mode. Can we get a driver update to correct the image rotation when using the webcam in portrait mode?
The 720p webcam in my new Edge E430 (I just got it last Thursday) is not working properly. When I use the Communications Utility or Skype, the green light next to the webcam turns on, but the image window only shows a completely black image. Also, when I increase the brightness or contrast settings of the webcam, the image becomes completely gray or completely white.
The Device Manager shows two devices - the "Integrated Camera" and the "Virtual Camera." I have already tried uninstalling/reinstalling the webcam drivers, but that hasn't worked. What else can I do?
I have an aspireone that im using in a carputer setup. Rather than mounting it on the floor right side up with the vents to the carpet, I plan on mounting it upside down, giving the vents inches of airspace. Is this a good idea or will the heat rising this way be bad... or will this bring down the hdd's life?
Last night my dog ran over the keyboard of my Dell Inspiron N411z . The screen now displays upside down. I can fix it manually by using the Fn key and the F1 key which brings up some screen options, but I'd like to permanently fix this. Oddly enough my dog did this to my other laptop a few years back. I'm not sure what he's running across to do this.
How to fix this so the screen isn't upside down every time I start the computer?
I was just browsing the internet when my cat lays on my keyboard, but I didn't mind it there. Then after about five minutes, the screen turned upside down! Tis screen is newer than the laptop.(ideapad y500)
I downloaded pictures and videos from my samsung phone and when viewing the videos they are upside down and I can't rotate them while viewing and if I rotate before viewing they still wind up upside down....
I'm trying to install Vista on a new hard drive for a Acer Aspire 5100. From what I researched, I believe I need to create the PQSERVICE partition. I'm trying to retrieve the 'Post Acer Disk Formatter CD ISO Image'. I believe it is a file named 'Diskformatdt_v1-1d.iso'. I read some of the threads on this website about how to retrieve the file from Acer's website,......................
Just got this Lpatop, popped battery in, plugged it in. I turn it on, keyboard backlight comes on, the fans spin up, nothing comes on the screen. Nothing is coming out of the HDMI port, really frustrated at this point as this is the second Acer laptop i bought that had issues (granted first one was used so I gave Acer a pass).

Anything I can do to fix this or is it just dead and send it back?
Acer aspire 5742. HDD crashed. I nstalled WD HDD. Booted with recovery disk. 1st screen US english next. second screen no OS in box. tried restore with image you have created earlier. could not find image. tried other recovery tool, Recovery Management. will not let me click on completely restore system to factory defaults. If I go back and click install drivers the disk has many applications and drivers. Put the old HDD back in and booted from disk. It allowed me to click on restore to default but when finished and restarted nothing. restarted wit f2 and with old drive in shows no HDD
I have an Aspire V3-772G. I can't create a recovery drive anymore. I ran reagentc.exe in command-prompt and it's pointing to the correct recovery location, but Windows RE is disabled and for some reason I can't reenable it.
Here are some screenshots to describe the problem :
I've been having issues with Vista on this machine, so yesterday I decided to scrap Vista and all the Acer software and install XP Pro. Now I have XP Pro SP3 installed.
I Googled and downloaded the XP drivers needed for audio (RealTek), webcam (Suyin), etc, and while they work, I'm having problems. The webcam worked great before the switch to XP.
1. The webcam video quality is very poor, like an old tv that needs to be thrown out.
2. The audio pick-up of the built in microphone is extremely low. I've gone through all the adjustments I can find with no luck. This has actually gotten worse as I've tried to upgrade drivers and what-not. Before the audio quality was poor but it worked, now the audio is barely there at all.
I have been trying to upgrade drivers both from the Acer website and from other sources, but I'm not making any progress. I installed the drivers before upgrading to SP3 (which I had read was the way to go), but now that I have installed SP3 and am reinstalling drivers, it seems like things have gotten worse.
I've found out that the webcam is a Suyin, I installed drivers from acer website.. and the result is still terrible.
The webcam is so slow, like 1 fps. Even when not in videocall and using acer crystal eye webcam to set it, it's slow, pixelated and sloow.. I don't mind about the colour, yellowish but adjustable, but I do mind about the fps and quality.
I guess it's a driver matter, because the driver installed is the microsoft's standard one. But I couldn't manage to get better results, also some of the settings like auto and white balance or camera control are not selectable.
I have been given an Acer 6930G by a family member to setup. After realising there's 0 discs included with the laptop, the Acer pop up message tells me I have to make my own factory default image. I have successfully made it on 2 DVDs, my question is now in the manual there is nothing about how to use it, I was wondering if anyone can share any insight to me as to how it works.
Basically I know it is probably a bootable DVD as the root of the DVD suggests (several "BOOT" files) I was wondering how it actually looks like? I haven't tested it yet as the user was extremely desperate to get it running so I had to give it up the moment the DVDs were made.
If I put the DVD in and select to boot from it at start up (before getting into windows) does it take me to some sort of custom screen where I can SELECT that I want to reformat and restore the laptop? I want to know what options I am given and I can only assume that it's the same for most laptops.
And I can only assume again, that if I factory restore it, it will come back with Vista activated and all the initial bloatware again, along with all the drivers for it (so I don't need to go track them down).
This is all I need to know, I wish I can test it but I can't even get the laptop back now (until it breaks ...)
If someone can post their experiences with it I will be grateful, this is just more for reassurance than anything, and confirm my assumptions? Many thanks in advance!
EDIT: I have discovered that I can launch that recovery app by pushing ALT+F10, I have managed to wrangle the laptop temporarily to test and have discovered that I can choose from 2 back up options, but I dare not go any further, can someone tell me the next steps? One says factory default, and the other is user's backup.
I can guess that if I choose the first option, factory default, it'll ask for the DVDs I have created? And the 2nd option will restore a backup I made selecting the user option on the recovery app.
A few days before I was going to shipping my Studio 15 off. I looked in the box and low and behold I found the Dell Webcam Center disk that I originally thought that Dell had forgotten to include.
Upon installation I found that the specific version of Dell WC that came with my Studio 15 is not the same one that you find at the downloads center on support.dell.com.
I could never get the downloaded Dell WC to work, even after numerous chats with technical support. No matter how many times I contacted Dell about this, they claimed there is only one version of Dell Webcam Center. Clearly that isn't true .....
This ones just a small problem. My webcam works fine, but it's missing on the menu and i can't locate it anywhere in my files so it's just a bit annoying if i want to make a video. It's not even in the manual (printed or computer version). It took three weeks before it appeared in the menu after I bought the laptop, but since I had to restore to factory default and god knows where it is, as i say it's only a minor problem, no location in services. and when i expand my Acer menus theres nothing there either.
I got some great information from the people on here previously and I'm back for more advice.
I have the ACER 6920 Gemstone Blue, it has a built in webcam called Acer Crystal Eye.
As I get older the paranoia gets worse, and lately I've been wondering who is watching me! I have been using Skype, Msn, Yahoo messenger and Facebook to stay in contact with family back home. I am not at all convinced about the secuity of these programs and wonder if I have been hijacked.
How can I check to see if my webcam has been hijacked?
Is there some where that I can look to see if it is in use?
