Does anybody know why the option for a webcam is not present on the Precision M6400 64bit configuration page (US)? This seems like a really basic option that should be available on their flagship machine.
Just about to receive a previously loved M4400 that is missing 1 feature I need for work and personal use: the webcam.
The question to all the M4400 users out there is: has anyone replaced the camera module? If the only thing required for me to exchange the existing mic only module with a cam + mic module? Is a different bezel used?
What is the part or assy. number for the webcam/mic board? The bezel with openings? Ebay has some Dell bezelcams but none that specify for M4400 or E6x00
He owns Inspiron I guess 1525 and I have Studio 1535.
We did some test and his camera quality was perfect, but min e was horrible.
It really amaze me and here are the screen shots from his and mine camera.
I'm with Vista x64 SP 2 - for some reason Vista just don't want to work with Creative Drivers and freeze my skype and camera is was lunched.This is due to some bug in SP 2, with SP 1 was compatible with Dell Drivers.
So I'm with standard Vista driver.
My friend is on Windows XP and He told me - He is with drivers from Del's web or something like it.
Is this normal?
the difference is like day and night as you wil l note.
I am considering upgrading my laptop to 64 bit Vista. How do I identify which camera version I have so I know which drivers I need? I've looked at the properties in device manager and it just identifies the camera drivers as 'Microsoft'.
I've got a UK Sony Z (VGN-Z11VN). I've got a dual boot Vista/7 setup that has been working fine. I used my motion eye camera about 1 month ago in 7 with no probs. Recently it's no longer there. By that I mean no camera installed, no devices in device manager (identified or not). I've not changed anything recently. I booted Vista (not used for months) and it's also absent from there!
There are no options in the bios that I can see to disable to camera, so I'm not sure what's happening.
As it's failed in BOTH vista and 7, and I knew previously it worked I'm assuming there's a hardware failure. Could it somehow be software?
I don't know of any way to be sure without fully re-installing, which I've not got the stomach for just now. Is there a linux live distro on usb or cd/dvd that I could boot from to check if the camera hardware is still present. Alternatively is there any way I can install windows on an external drive (usb/firewire) - I think not, as I don't want to mess with my existing install as I'm pretty busy.
I recieved the Aspire one notebook for a christmas gift not to long ago and it is an awesome little gadget. But what just happened a few moments ago is the camera decided it wasn't going to work anymore and I got a message saying. "Camera not detected." I tried doing restarts resets and even did a eRecovery only to be told that it was a usb device and that I need to "plug it in". I don't understand why it decided to randomly stop working and I'm rather annoyed by it and would like some assistance on this issue. I had to send back one notebook already because the power source was busted I really don't want to have to send this one back too.
I have a Canon Powershot G5 and I am trying to connect this to my Sony Laptop.
The camera uses a 3.5mm AV cable but I am unsure where to plug into the laptop. In the yellow female port on the back? And I do not know what cable to use. I cannot find a male to male Audio Visual cable.
I've reinstalled my system recently, I've gone from Vista Home Premium 64bit to Vista Business 32bit on my Z690, using all the drivers available on Sony's support & drivers website. Everything was fine here and there until I've realized, the camera isn't working properly after having the Arcsoft webcam companion 2 installed.
The trouble is, I get this message: Bluetooth video waiting for connection...
I can imagine, some of you guys might have entered this issue, which is quite easy to resolve, saying this I found the following tip:
However, under Arcsoft settings the only video device listed is the bluetooth video listed. This most probably means, the Sony visual communication camera missing equals the missing camera driver on my Z690, right? I mean, having a look at device manager, under Imaging devices I've got only xerox scanner listed (installed myself through control panel/hardware and sound/scanners and cameras).
Anyway, I've even tried to install the XP camera drivers for Z690 instead, they installed smoothly (using administrator rights and XP compatibility mode), but Vaio camera capture utility shows blue screen with no input, and the Sony visual communication camera for XP provided doesn't seem to work (I know, I know it's supposed to be used for XP only, but I'm desperate here
I've tried uninstall and reinstall over & over again, restarting etc.
I found that my new Z does not come with motion eye camera driver, because my new Z was fresh start option. The Sony esupport website does not have the driver. My hardware manager does not even show the Images Device.
I know this is an older model. I had to replace the hard drive and do not have the recovery disks. Sony says no longer available. They have drivers and updates on the website but not original software.
I managed to load XP from a separate disk. I put on a number of items and drivers. Most everything seems to work except the camera. I have Network Smart Capture when I press the smart button it opens and the on light on the camera lights but no picture.
Do I need separate software and if so which one and where do I get it? Does anyone have the recovery disks?
Just picked up this new notebook. When on Skype, the image quality rec'd by others is downright terrible. For example, the cables for the headphones I was using is seen as terribly jagged on the other end. See it here.
Is this image is as good as it gets? Seems like a 1.3 Mb camera should be able to do a better job.
i am having problem on my camera..though i installed the driver of it but when i launch the acer eye camera it says "camera not found"..i tried to re-install it but same thing happens..i also reformatted it...
My Extensa 4420 has a webcam. I can turn it on and see ugly pictures of me staring at the computer screen. The question I have, is what can I do with the camera. The computer does not seem to have come with any software that I can use to record video. Is there any free software that will do this?
I have a problem with the camera on my VAIO VGN-CR353. Whenever I take a still photo or video, the captured image or video that is saved becomes mirrored (the left and right are reversed). Even the mirror box in the camera setup is unchecked. Currently, I am running version 2.7.01.08030 of VAIO camera capture utility and the driver for the webcam is version 6.1005.209.0.
I've installed windows ultimate on my FZ17G.. btw its a clean install and i accidentally format the Sony restore partition... and now i have trouble in installing its keyboard function such as the Fn keys, S key, AV MODE key and the volume control keys (pause stop play next)... which application or driver do i need to install to make them work correctly... btw the increase and decrees volume function work but there is no graphic animation when i push the button
