Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

When i sign onto windows live messenger, i can view other contacts webcams, but they can not view mine. apparently, my webcam is in use by another program, it clearly isnt though. acer aspire 5735 crystal eye. any ideas?


Answers :

If you know which process is trying to use the web cam, kill the process in Windows Task Manager. There is a program called "Unlocker" that will assist with this as well. I would also try uninstalling it Device Manager then reboot your computer to re-detect and reinstall it. If that doesn't work, try updating the device's drivers.
