Camera disappears from Acer Aspire 5630 notebook

I didn't use the camera for more than 6 months and when I tried to use it recently it said "the camera is not available or not working. I downloaded drivers which didn't help so took the notebook back to factory default and the camera came back. A week later it had reverted to the same old not available or not working. I was told by Acer to take it to a repair place but I don't use the camera enough to pay more for repairs. Beverly

    That wasn't a solution it was a sales effort for drivers.

Hi! Your built in camera is just like ordinary camera that you plug into usb ports available. The only difference is that your built in cam is directly plugged into a dedicated usb slot in the motherboard. Most of the times the cable of the camera passes thru the hinges of the LCD which is prone to damamge due to opening and closing motion you do on your LCD or Laptop cover.

What could have happened was that the tiny cables that connects your cam to the board is now slightly aor if not severely damaged. unless you are a novice, I suggest you really have to bring it in for repair before it causes more harm to your laptop.

DRIVER PROBLEM


If your computer is less than six months old, you can contact the manufacturer and they will help.

Secondly, the new devices for sound and video are mounted, especially on laptops, on a special high definition bus (or something like that).

I had a similar problem with HP laptops whereby this advanced bus was easily detected by Vista but I had to install XP and the sound went kaput. The only way to solve was to install this driver patch specially prepared by the manufacturer.

That is why you have to contact the manufacturer.

Acer Orbi Cam Aspire 5630


Try to unplug and plug again the camera cable. it's under keyboard.
You have to open the power cover and remove keyboard screw, you can see the wire that connect to mainboard.
If this way don't work, try to uninstall the camera application and installed again, if this is still don't work, Reload the OS.
