Acer Aspire 9300 camera and usb issues

The built in webcam and usb ports on my aspire 9300 have stopped working..
I had not changed anything on the machine
I have tried reinstalling the drivers for the camera. It is just not seen as a device at all
The only error I get is when I open a cam viewer and it says there is no device
I am really stumped

    Right click on "MY Computer" if you are running Windows XP, or "Computer" if running Vista. Click "Properties". click on the "Hardware" tab that will come up in XP, then click on "Device manager". There will be a list of different types of devices with plus signs to the left of them to expand. Look for any item that has an exclamation point or question mark next to it, and report back what you have found.

webcam has own microphone which use USB like camera. Windows has own port for microphone.
go to software options which you are using with camera and change recording device to different one " it should be named like "USB mic" or something like that.

Did you recently change or add memory? My 9300 will not recognize 4GB RAM after I upgraded the BIOS to version 1.2, so I use only 2GB and it works ok again.
