I just bout a used msi laptop with built in camera but when i try to use video chat it says camera not detected

If you know how to get to the device manager you will see that the camera is there but it might need a software driver.
My experience with laptops, windows and cameras is that the unit it is recognized and made available for any program.

There is the possibility the camera is bad.

I'm trying to use Skype with a friend and the screen is green where the video should be? What could be the problem?

Check your video camera's settings to see if the right mode is selected and check those same settings within skype. Try rebooting and make sure the camera is plugged in and no other programs are accessing the camera. Try going into the control panel and verfying that your camera is operational by taking a picture or some video of yourself to be viewed in a window. If no matter what you do ends up with a green screen then I am afraid your camera is no more and time for a replacement.

My webcam just randomly turned off and i dont know how to turn it on again when i try to use it, it says webcam is in use and its nott

Have your computer search for the program "Acer OrbiCam" and click on it when you find it. That should bring up a small window controlling the orbicam and a larger window displaying the picture being captured by the camera.

Also, your Acer can maintain multiple concurrent user sessions. You may be using the computer in one session and there may be another user session open at the same time, with the camera in use in that other session. Try shutting down and restarting the computer.
