Hi soleillee,

Yeah this is most likely a driver problem. You see the drivers from windows xp wont work with windows vista. It is very likely that your camera was not made with vista drivers if it is more than a year old. Unfortunately without a windows vista drivers your camera wont work. so you have two options:

1- find out if the camera has a vista drivers and install them
2- buy a new camera ( i know its frustrating)

And if i may recommend the logitech cameras, they are sturdy and the mid range ones have great picture, and best of all there tech support is easy to find when you want a new driver.

My bilt in web cam doesnt wana work i click on it but it saya its not installed


You might try installing the driver for the webcam. If you dont have the cd rom, try downloading it from the Laptop Manufacturer's website. You will need your laptop's model to browse to specific driver.

Hi got my laptop scren replaced now my web cam doesnt work is it because thet forgot to conect it back up


Hi.

Try first going to Acer page and download and install again the Cam drivers.
Also go to Control Panel > Installed hardware, and check if the Cam is listed under installed devices.
Check if cam is disabled, in that case enable it.

If the camera is not there, and installing drivers does not fix the problem, then the repairer may have forgot connecting the 4 pin connector to cam. Call the repairman and ask them how to proceed to have the problem fixed.
