Go to CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM and SECURITY, and select DEVICE MANAGER under SYSTEM options. Go down the list to IMAGING DEVICES and click to see if your webcam is installed with a yellow symbol indicating a problem.
If you have a problem OR if the camera is not there, try reinstalling the Device Driver. Go to your computer manufacturer's web page, identify your system, click support, and device drivers. DOWNLOAD and REINSTALL the device driver for your camera.
If this does not work, you may have a hardware failure and need to replace the camera which is usually very inexpensive. Look for it on eBay rather than the manufacturer's web site.
Reinstall the webcam driver. You can download it from here - http://www.laptop-software.com/acer-software/acer-aspire-5332-windows-vista-7-drivers/
If still the same issue exists, check "Device Manager" (to open Device Manager right click on the "My Computer" or "Computer" icon then click properties, then click the Hardware tab, then click Device Manager) the webcam should be under "Imaging Devices". If it is not listed or detected, that means there might be a problem with the driver not properly installed or there is a problem on the webcam itself.

3. Find your web cam in Device Manager
Understanding Device Names
=> Windows provides user-friendly device names to accomodate us humans. As far as Windows is concerned, the device name is simply a comment!
=> It's those cryptic Device Identification strings that really identify a device
=> Device Manager displays whatever device name it happens to find in the device driver
...==> If Windows finds NO device driver, your web cam may be named "Unknown" or "Other" device
...==> If Windows finds the WRONG device driver you may see your web cam with the WRONG device name
How to find your web cam
=> While your web cam is connected, look through all of Device Manager for devices with a yellow icon (probably a yellow question mark)
=> Be certain to expand the USB category to check all devices listed under it. Also, be sure to also check if category Other Devices appears in Device Manager and look under it as well
=> Your web cam will appear as a device with a yellow icon (probably a question mark)
=> Click on thumbnail to see the full sized image
How to verify the device you found is your web cam
=> Your web cam device will only appear in Device Manager when the web cam is powered on and connected
=> Disconnect your web cam. Verify the device you had found is no longer displayed in Device Manager
4. Find your web cam's Hardware Ids
In Device Manager, select your web cam device, rt click Properties. Click Details tab
Select Hardware Ids from the pull-down. You'll see a list of one or more Hardware Id strings
5. Search for a driver based on Hardware Id > Update 1/26/2011: To avoid a common mistake,
don't confuse the number zero with the letter "O". IDs may contain zero
but NOT the letter "O"
The best driver will match the Hardware Id at the top of the list. The next best driver match will match the next Hardware Id on the list, etc
Start by searching for the Id at the top of the Hardware Id list
If only due to how different search engines work, recommend you cut USB\ from the search string
=> Example: If the Hardware Id is USB\VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001 search for VID_093A&PID_2468&REV_0001
You can start by clicking Search at the top of your TechSpot window to search TechSpot first

you need the drivers for those devices marked with yellow --"yellow"ethernet
controller will not allow to access the web to download drivers to solve your problem--options are:- use the "original" driver disk that came with the laptop or download to another pc/laptop and transfer drivers using usb key.
Please check in the Device Manager under "Imaging Devices" whether the "Web cam driver is listed". If the Web cam driver is not listed then install the web cam driver either using the Recovery Discs or from the location "C:\Drivers". Please do restart the Computer after installing the driver. Even if the web cam driver is listed under the "imaging devices" in the Device Manager then right click on it and unistall then restart the Computer and reinstall it. Next, use any video utilities such as MSN or any other to check if the web cam is working normally. It's required to configure web cam in the utilities to be used with any other utilities.
You should first check device manager for any issues with Network drivers.
Start--> Run --> devmgmt.msc
This command will launch "Device manager" window.
If you see a Yellow exclamation mark in device manager for NIC, follow the following steps to identify the card that is installed on your computer.
Open Device Manager (Right-click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager)
The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it’s easier to locate the device.
Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
You should see a code similar to this PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0
The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example: Vendor ID = 8086 Device ID = 27DC
Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to www.pcidatabase.com . There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.
After you find out the information about the device and the manufacturer of the device, you can visit the manufacturer’s website and download the corresponding device drivers.
you may have tried this but go to device manager and uninstall the network device and then reboot the found new hardware wizard will show up and the do not let it look click on have disk and point to where the drivers are located and if it says driver not digitaly sign install anyway should work
