Dear Tori, Greetings from New Zealand! You have not supplied much info - so we'll start from the beginning...SAFELY Remove web-cam connection - (I presume it is a USB connection?) - by R-clicking on the little icon - usally green - in the systray by the clock, & following instructions. Have you installed the web-cam "driver" software from the cd that came with the web-cam? If not then do so. Plug in web-cam USB & wait until pop-ups notify you that web-cam device is detected & ready to use. L-Click on "START" > All Programs > Web-cam program. If this option does not work/is not available, then OPEN "My Computer" & click on web-cam icon. This should start web-cam software & you SHOULD see your smiling face on screen! If Nothing works - then you will have to make a note of the model & contact Gateway for support. I hope that this helps! GBU! - Bruce.
Ok, basically you have to do:
1. go to the device manager in windows system properties, and chek if this device is installed.
2. If you see a Unknown device, go to acer's site and download driver.
3. If it still "Unknown device". download the chipset driver and install it, then install CAM driver.
4. despite this it still without recognize it, it is sure that you have a problem with the hardware connection.
5. one last option, try ubuntu live cd and try to use the cam via messenger. If it works, then reinstall the operating system, I recomend windows 7

Hi, Did you have software installed to use the WebCam? You need software to run the WebCam. Install the web cam software in your laptop. Look in your program folder to locate webcam software. Then you access the web cam through this software. You can easily operate it.
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.
acer has software installed to use the web cam. it is usually in the start menu. some computers that have web cams in order to use the have some sort of messenger service installed on them. the instant messenger service is what computer uses to access the cam.
