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??

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 an acer laptop and it has a webcam built in the only problem is i dont have it installed and i dont have the cd for it is there anyway to do it online

go to the website snd look up your laptop. in the driver support area and look for the web cam driver.

You have to look for your laptop. Not the web cam. it is a laptops driver,,,

That should speed up your search

Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam

If it isnt listed under hardware then something may have happened to cause the computer to delete the file "virus protection or firewall" and it may be that your computer just isnt reconizing the software anymore. if you have an installation disk try to use it and reinstall the stuff and go from there.
