Re: how do i activate my web cam on a new Acer windows...
Hello monzky and thanks for using fixya.com.
First off if you have upgraded to windows vista, it may be possible your webcam is not supported. The best bet would be to check acers website for updates for vista drivers for your laptop model. If you post your laptops model we would be more then happy to look them up for you.

When you get there, select "Notebook"...then select "Aspire". Then scroll down and select Aspire 5610. Then where you see "OperatingSystem",
select your operating system (ex: XP, Vista, or Windows 7). It will
then show all the drivers for your operating system...scroll down until
you see the camera driver software and then download and reinstall it. Hopefully this will help...good luck.
you did not say which Operating system you are using which is important as I am going to suggest you install the driver. at any rate I am going to give you the link where you can select your computer model and operating system from the drop down menus. from the horizontal menu choose driver and select your camera make
Have you installed the WEB cam driver as well as the other devices such as graphics, audio, modem, LAN etc?
If not then ; - Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop.

Acer Aspire Model generally comes with a bison web cam driver.
To use the web cam search for an application that installed in program files.In windows Xp web cam can be used by double clicking camera icon present in my computer. If you are using windows vista or other operating system you need an camera application software,to use it. Without application software you can use your web camera only in messengers,for example yahoo messenger. If u had an yahoo messenger login and click on view my web cam,now you can see your face in your laptop.So first thing is search for an application software installed on your laptop.

Hi, I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps. Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it. If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.
