Having problems with your Lenovo 3000 G530 Notebook ?

I have a camera built in, having trouble working it

\015 I know that the web cam works because my computer has face recognition. But when I try to use it to chat on gmail or skype a pop up says that an error has occured and to check if it is already in use.\015

Answers :

I suspect there is a "Service" that is using the camera, that starts when windows starts and this is mucking it all up, go START>>RUN>> type in services.msc & when it pops up look for anything to do with the camera and turn it OFF and set to Manual start. try again to see if your camera is still in use.OR it may be in your startup files. START>>RUN>> type in MSCONFIG, when the windows come up, go to the STARTUP tab and look in there for same/similar thing, disable, uncheck what you find and reboot, you can work through this until you find your culprit.
