Re: problem with the webcam
Have you downloaded and tried the Acer Camera driver 126.96.36.199 from the Acer website directly. I have the same laptop with Vista installed. Whenever I install Windows Vista on my laptop, I download the same driver and it works. You can try the other webcam drivers (Bison or Suyin) on the acer website as well. Hope this shouldnt be a problem and these drivers work 99% of the time.

Just to make sure I understand the question, you want to install Windows XP on to your computer instead of Windows Vista? Yes you can install windows xp. If your computer came with windows vista you will need to buy windows xp with a COA or Certificate Of Authenticity. This is the code that comes with any Windows software that allows you to prove you have a real copy of windows.
It is Better do this : Instead of Updating the drivers, roll back the driver first and unintall the Hardware Totally from your system through the device manager. Next, restart your system, and then it prompts for 'New Hardware Found', use the Finger Printer Driver That you have, to re-install it afresh, if you dont have you can download it from here : http://www.getpcmemory.com/drivers/download-acer-aspire-5738-5738g-5738z-notebook-windows-xp-drivers/
After that, restart your system again. It should work like that now.
if you have installed vista and change it to xp, you should first delete or reformat your current OS (Operating System) which I believe is the ur vista.
-insert your xp disk then press F8
-click format or delete files ( i don't know the exact message that will appear on the screen)
-then install windows XP (just follow the instruction that you will see on the screen)

You need to download the drivers for your webcam for windows Vista. Go here and choose your computer. In the right box, choose Acer Orbicam (logitech). That is the vista driver. Download and install it. There you go :c)
