is it built into a laptop or third party? "doesn't work"? be specific, what have you tried?

It is built in. the Laptop freezes up whenever i try and start up the camera, sometimes it comes up with "Camera is busy." or "No camera detected."

it used to work? how old is it? what capture software are you using? have you changed anything recently?

.Yes it used to work, Its an ex-demo so im not too sure but i have had it for about 3-4 months, Its Acer Crystal Eye Webcam, I dont think anythings been changed i did a disk defrag about 2 days ago but i dont think that would have done anything to it.

ex demo? if it's under warranty take it back to the shop. what capture software are you using. tried updating the drivers? try add/remove hardware, it may automatically [re]install them if not use the discs, if you have no discs go the the acer site.

Sweet. Im not too sure what the capture software is but it has: Acer Crystal eye Webcam Sonix, SUYIN, and normal crystal eye webcam. if that helps?
