    Device does not appear in manager and I suspect that the camera is broken internally.

    Did you say that you had Linus installed on it previously, and webcam was working? THen you installed XP and webcam is not recognized?

    Do your xp see any unknown device in the device manager ?? If yes you have to install driver.

I have a built in webcam and it doesnt work i cant find anything to turn it on


The webcam will only turn on when a software on your computer requests the camera. Try downloading a program like Skype and see if it detects your camera. If not, you may truly have an issue with it. You can also visit the Acer website to download the latest drivers for your webcam.

My aspire 5532 is suppose to have a built in camera on it and i pressed F6 like you are suppose to, to get it to turn on and its not turning on. I will mainly use it for skype during video chats. What can...


I have the same laptop, and i got the same problem with the camera, but see what i found. The built-in camera is located in the same piece of plastic that camera does. Then, if you open/close the laptop so many times, this seems to damage the camera connection and is like it doesnt have any camera. So when i want to use the camera, i simply push with my thumb around the camera, and run the program/chat or anything that i will use the camera. Of course, you first look at the drivers, if correct , then try the other solution i post. And theres no built in microfone. Hope it solve it.

Cannot detect the acer orbicam built in webcam on my laptop acer aspire 5570


1. Check the device manager to see if there is a conflict.
2. Reinstall the driver
3. Special Note: Acer actually put 3 different brands of cameras in that model. So, if the laptop or manual doesn't tell you which one was installed in your particular machine, you may need to install each of the three drivers one at a time to see which one registers and gets the camera working.
4. Just in case you were interested as I would be... Acer does not consider this laptop to be Windows 7 ready.


Good luck and Merry Christmas.

Does the Acer Aspire 5532 have a built in webcam


No,it doesn't. But there are many other ways to connect a camera to your ACER,it just wouldn't be built in obviously. I have the same computer,which means i have the same problem and unfortunately no WE Aspire 5532 users don't have a built in webcam.
