Hi, my Acer Aspire 5732z does have a web cam, but it won't work. I've de-installed the driver and downloaded a new one from the Acer website, but it still won't function. If I open up Acer...


If there are no error status codes under device manager, then either you have some OS corruption and need to reinstall the OS or the webcam is defective. I would be more inclined to say the latter.
Skype is a good test, since you've obviously done that its most likely bad.
You could test the os theory by downloading hiren boot cd, burn the image to disc and boot into the mini xp live part, install skype and driver under it and test the web cam.
If its under warrenty just have them replace the web cam, if not i could replace it at a reasonable price. Comment back for additional assistance.

How can i switch on my webcam?


Hi.

Usually your webcam doesn't have a button to switch on. It should go on when you use a program like Live msn, Skype etc. to make video chat.

Ive recently bought the acer aspire 5735 series lap top ... tried to go on webcam on msn messenger and it is saying .... We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently...


everyone seems to be having trouble with the acer web cam
If you updated messenger go back to your previous version
If you have not updated then try and update messenger.
If this does'nt help then you need to uninstall the cam and then reinstall.
I have the same problem and it seems to be constant

you need to setup cam with each program
After you start Windows Live Messenger,
expand the view by clicking on the square
on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the
right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click
on “Show the Menu Bar”.
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action.
Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting
and follow the instructions.
