Acer 5920 Webcam issues
My mothers laptop, 5920 with crystaleye webcam reports as buisy when trying to use it.
Bout 3 months ago, she was playing around with the Acer Arcade and made a short vid as a test. When she stopped it, and closed it out it kept saying, "stop recording before exitng" Which she had.
She ended the program some how, and thought nothing of it.
She went to use skype with a freind.. first time since makin the above vid, and skype reported the cam was buisy. She tried msn, and the crystal eye software.. No go, all say ts buisy.
Now, she uninstalled arcade and the crystal eye stuff.. nope
I uninstalled the webcam via the device manager and scaned for new hardware... nope
Check the event logs, and it seen an error that the arcade webcam software had an error trying to start.. It was removed and shouldn't hve been starting.
This leads me to think Arcade never released the cam from the video back 3 months ago.
I reinstall arcade, and it seems promising.. But no go.
loaded up cam software and the controls work vand cam lights up, so i hit record, and stop it. But alas.. no good.
Try it again, and controls don't work and no light on cam.
All this leads me to Windows not releasing the cam from arcade...
So, does anyone have any ideas...
