The Acer Aspire netbook line comes with a webcam built in to the display panel. This webcam can be used with any software that can access the webcam, such as a video chat program. The cam is in use only when the appropriate software is loaded, so it's not active at all times. The webcam drivers are installed in your netbook, so it should work with most software.

Install a third-party application, such as Skype or Yahoo! Messenger, that offers video chat features. Launch the video chat or messaging software. Select video chat or video calls from within the application to activate your Acer Aspire netbook camera. The camera should load automatically when you select the right option in your third-party software. The camera output displays on your screen and your chat partner's.
b>Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime
software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). Hope this helps.

I can see who i am calling perfectly but they cannot see me as soon as i turn my 5500 series on it goes to take a picture or film and it wont come off of it

Configure your videoconferencing application to use your camera by default. Don't forget to allow the software to show to the others what your camera is seeing.

Hope it helps.
