Was the webcam factory installed?

If so, find "My Computer" or, I guess, "Computer " in Twista, and double-click on it. The webcam is probably listed in devices you can open at the bottom of the list... double-click on it.

Alternately...

Start...
Run...
"msconf.exe"
<enter>

But of course, blista does not put the "run" command on your start menu by default, so you will have to manipulate the properties of your task bar to show the "run" command.

    A-Ha! That probably explains why it isn't working...

Web Cam Has Stopped Working


Try getting the correct Acer Aspire 5100 drivers from the support website and installing. Try in Device Manager looking for the web cam, or any device with a little yellow excalamation. If all else fails, right click and Update from Windows Update. Maybe there is a switch for the web cam?

Acer aspire 5100 BL51 windows 7 wireless driver


You will have to navigate this site; enter 'notebook', 'Aspire', and scroll to 5100; after that, you will have to choose 32 bit or 64 bit. That being said, Acer does not support Windows 7 yet-you can try the Vista drivers; more often than not they will work. One note-I cannot tell just from the info you supplied whether you have the Atheros or Broadcom chip-You should be able to determine that in Device Manager.

I have no built-in web cam. The person that fixed my laptop put in Windows Vista and I can't find my web cam


the driver for your USB webcam is missing after installing Vista.
Right click "Computer", open Properties, open Device Manager on the left, find if there is an alert saying unknown device or sth, if there is the unknown, update your webcam driver.

Which driver are you using? There are two different ones. The Bison and the Suyin. Make sure you have the right driver. Probably the Bison. Uninstall the cam from the device manager, download the Bison driver for your model and install the driver and wait for the "found new hardware wizard" to install the cam. Then reboot and see if it fixes the problem. Good luck and let me know if this helps. http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acer/bin/acer.html#app=2766&9e7c-selectedIndex=0&3386-selectedIndex=2&bca4-selectedIndex=1&bf37-selectedIndex=1&4f90-selectedIndex=1
