Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 3260-4874 Notebook ?

Weird message when I try to use the camera, it gives me the message " camera is used by another application " even though I am not using any other application. I reinstalled the drivers but still get the messege. I have a Acer Aspire 5580 and the camera says Orbicam. Thanks in advance.


Answers :

Check if there is a device driver conflict...a reinstallation of the OS to another hard disk might be easier to do the troubleshooting...in this case you can install the camera driver first and later monitor each application that interferes with it.
