    my built in camera does not work either. i also have the acer aspire 5630. my continues to tell me that it is already in use by another application or it is not connected. when i have absolutely everything closed except the webcam it still says there is another application with it in use. the camera stopped working after about a month and then my computer had a worm on it and i had that removed and the computer fixed and then my camera worked for like 2 weeks, and now its back to not working.

Double check that the sam is installed and enabled in Device Manager.
Click Start Menu
Right Click on My Computer and select Properties
CLick the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Now expand the box (click the little + on the left) of imaging devices
If you see your webcam, doulble click on it and look under Device Status and see if it says it's disabled or not functioning properly.
If it is disabled, simply enable it and it should would.

You could certainly try it , it won't hurt your operating system and if it doesn't you can then un-install it . Personally , if you haven't already , I'd go to both acer and logitech web sites and see if they have a patch or up-dated driver first .... good luck

How do I activate the web cam on my Acer Aspire One notebook?


I'm guessing it's a built-in camera. In this case, if you open a program such as Skype or MSN messeger, you will have a pop-up window saying that the program has identified your web camera, and would you like to set it up.
otherwise, these built in cameras have program which allows you to record images and mainly set your camera. Check in your "Start" menu for such a program

Acer Web Camara


Not sure how different the 4520 is from the 5920 that I use. I have a webcam built in and can use the camera with Skype, Live messenger or a video editing program I use.

For me I just opened those programs and clicked on the camera icon and it all worked for me.

Have you tried to use any of the above programs to see if the camera works?

I am assuming you have a built in web cam like I do.
