Built In Webcam

\015 I have a built in web cam and whenever i get on AIM or other online messaging networks to video chat, it says my camera is in use with another program and will not work. The problem is there is no other program running. Any suggestions?\015\012I have a built-in webcam, which does not work. When I try to use it it says "Locked by another application". Restarting does not work as well. What should I do?\015\012i dont not know how to work the web cam at all\015

Answers :

Ok, first let's approach this from a rational way of thinking, I have to count on your answers to steer us in the right direction, so first what other program that you installed during the time that the cam ceased to function?, if you can come up with that answer we are home free. If not there is only one thing to do. How many IM's are yoou running at once, just because they aren't on the screen doesn't mean that they aren't running. From the way you wrote this you have more than one, since we are not in chat, I must assume you have at least 2 that use the cam right. You have to go into each one where they say either tools, or properties, and change the setting so that the program does not run at all nor control the camera automaticlly. If you arent sure what you are doing, get a friend wh's a geek, to show you. The only other alternative is to start removing 1 IM and see if it works, if you have more than 2, you are always going to have one of them try to hog the camera, unless yu set it not to do that. As long as you know your log on , I would take one out and see if that does the trick. Guaranteed that's what's happening, an app is not allowing the other apps to use it.
