Webcam issue - Acer Aspire 5052awxmi

My acer keeps telling me that I do not have a webcam installed (clearly built in) and so cannot chat to friends on MSN or Skype. It is an intermittant problem that occurs all too often. Some days it will work, others I have the above problem.

Go into the device manager, and make sure there are np problems. Start, settings, control panel, system, open device manager, locate the web cam and look at the bottom, make sure it is working, "it will tell you", make sure it has the most recent driver etc. exit out of everything and go to start programs again, choose your webcam program and see if it needs a firmware upgrade. it should show u when u look at the program, and if noothing seems wrong, then just re-install the webcam. peace, Gym

How to start webcam in acer aspire 5052 ANWXMi?


Glad to help YOU!

The procedure is pretty simple. Just follow these steps:
# install the driver listed for your Acer Aspire from the Acer Support Website (just make sure you will choose the right country that fits you the best!); or you can download the Hardware Vendor Detection Utility from HERE to help you to choose the right driver;
# reboot the laptop
# go on START > CONTROL PANEL > ADD NEW HARDWARE and choose the webcam for your machine > OK;
# wait until the installation is done (read carefully the indications that will pop-up on screen)
# you are almost done
# go on Yahoo!Messenger or Google Chat and install the proper application (depends which one you use or you are familiar with...)
# restart web browser
# LOGIN for the chosen application and do a click on a contact/friend and choose the Aspire webcam as the device for the video chat (your contact/friend must be AVAILABLE at that moment!)


GOOD LUCK!

First thing you need to install AOL messenger so you can enjoy chatting with your friends while you chat with them. In the AOL messenger you can start your cam. There should be an icon of the software that runs your camera on your desktop. Use that to take pictures and save on a specified file location then after that enjoy sending e-mails or chat with your friends with your cam. Let me know if you have further questions.

Acer's built in webcam


Did you install the necessary drivers for the webcam. If not, use the CD that came with the laptop to install the drivers and then try to use it with Yahoo, etc..
