My acer web cam stopped working???

I bought a new acer 5100-5840 this past spring. I hardly ever used my web cam that came with the laptop. About 4 months ago it just stopped working. I have VISTA that came with the laptop but it worked fine and now when I attempt to turn it on an error message from microsoft windows says my web cam has a problem and they will let me know if "they" can fix it. But they never reply and jsut continually say windows has a problem and will contact me with solutions but never do. Can you help me??

    I have a 1.3 Megapixel logitech quickcam and it has stopped working. We had to reboot our computer and ever since then it has stopped working. It says that the ASB cord needs to be plugged in, when it is in. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

    I was chating and using my Acer Web Cam one day and the following day it stopped working. Going through the steps of reporting the problem to Windows I have not heard back as to how to recify the problem.

More on this, seems a lot of folks are have the same issue. Seems related to a recient MS update. Someone suggested reinstall the drivers:

I am going to try this tonight, seems like a good thought.

I have a laptop and the webcam does not work


1- make sure the webcam driver was install properly. Type devmgmt.msc at run. Look at the imaging device.
2- If its not install yet, just go to the site and download ur acer webcam then install.
3- If already configure, try uninstall then restart. Check whether usable or not. If cant, download new driver from the site , uninstall the old one and install with new one.
4- There got a lot of choice of webcam driver. better u download all and try one by one.
Or just let me know what kind of acer dat u use?

Web cam not working


Since you have a NEW computer, I will assume you have Vista on it. Yahoo messenger does not support the use of a web cam with Vista.
