Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?

I cannot get my webcam to open on my new gateway NV52 laptop. When I went into program search I found a folder that said WEBCAM. It ask me to install, I installed. Then retarted the computer. I did after that, get a drop down toolbar for webcam at the top of my screen but when I clicked on it to open it, it said CAM was locked by another application. Please help!


Answers :

I had the same problem, so I deleted a bunch of applications like Messenger and Skype that also use the webcam but that didn't work. Finally, I deleted something called Windows 7 codecs and my webcam started working again. If you happen to have that program on your computer--delete it; otherwise, keep looking for the culprit. It took me about three days of messing around to nail it.
