Camera does not work all the time.
I bought a USB Nexigo web camera. Basic web camera. When you reinstall the drivers through settings, device manager, etc; It works with Zoom; it works by itself. No issue. But on startup, opening Camera app it says "Close other apps" plus "It looks like another app is using the camera already" error code 0xA00F4243 AND 0xC00D3704 After startup the camera will not work in Zoom, Camera or anywhere else. Sometimes if you change the USB port the camera will start working without any further effort. Moving it back to the original USB port; it still works. How do you find the app that is using the Camera?
Complete Black Screen Everywhere. Even In Safe Mode.
Hello, please help me! I just downloaded a theme from devianart, installed it, then when I clicked on it through windows settings, it said "Please Wait" for a second (default screen when themes are changing) and then just made all my active windows black. Explorer, chrome & Windows Settings was black & suddenly, screen completely turned black with just mouse pointer showing up. Can't use Start, Run or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Couldn't do ANYTHING accept holding the power button for 10 seconds and pressing shift to enter recovery menu (the one with a blue screen and 6 options like troubleshoot, continue and reset) there i ran cmd and tried to uninstall my current theme, but it just showed 3 themes - . , .. and aero. i couldn't find the custom theme name, not a single! (i had multiple downloaded but never applied) I tried system restore point, that failed (i made one before installing the theme) I also tried startup repair, didn't work. FINALLY I tried safe mode, but IT DIDN'T WORK TOO! Just my mouse cursor size increased and black screen was still there, nothing working at all (same as in normal mode). Please help me! All information is above!
Windows Boots In Recovery State?
Hello Guys. I have a problem concerning the boot up of my PC. so basically a few days ago we had a power outage and i was using my pc at that time. but little did I know it affected it and did something to it. Every time i restart or open up my pc it restarts in its known last state? not really sure about it. And every time i change or install somethings i automatically deletes those changes and reverts back to that said state. I am having problem with this and is messing up my work. If there is someone out there that can help it would be very much appreciated. TL;DR PC boots ups in the last state where it was "fine" and any changes or installed new apps gets automatically deleted.

i was using a acer plug in monitor with my acer aspire 3 laptop and this morning when I started, powered up my monitors had switched from second screen only to extend . so half the screen was on each monitor and all by itself ! I checked for updates and restarted my laptop hoping it would revert to my original setup but instead it cut out my additional monitor all together ! saying on the 2nd screen "no signal " ahhh what's happened. I cant seem to get my laptop to recognize the other monitor even though it is plugged in directly. Anybody know what I have to do ?
