Not sure why, but for some reason, within the last couple days, my built in camera on my computer has not been working. The first time I noticed it was when I logged onto skype and it told my I couldn't video chat because I didn't have a camera. When I went to the camera tool bar on the left side of the screen which pops out when I bring the mouse to the left side of the screen and tried clicking the "turn camera on" button, a box popped up which said something like "your camera has been turned off or disconnected. go to webcamera settings to find solutions". I then scrolled back to the webcamera tool box and tried to click on settings and the saem box telling me the same thing. I tried it a couple more times and the same box kept popping up. I restarted my computer and then it seemed to be working fine. Then today, I tried to skype and could only video call, so i scrolled to the left and the webcamera toolbox opened and I tried clicking on something and the same message telling me "your camera has been turned off or disconnected. go to webcamera settings to find solutions", so i restarted my computer, hoping it would fix things and after restarting my computer, now the toolbox won't even appear when i scroll to the left side of the page.
I had same issues. Called support number 1-800-457-7777, and after talking to support issue resolved by downloading webcam applications. While the tech people were very hard to understand, they finally did get my webcam working again.
