Question about Acer Aspire 4720 Notebook
Called Acer tech support. She had me uninstall the webcam from the device manager and restart the computer. It then automatically 'installed new hardware'. That did not work, (Webcam still ''not found''), and she said ''do you have anything important on your computer you don't want to lose?'' ''Uh....well.....yes, this is my computer...'', ''You must reinstall the computer to factory condition from your restore disks.'' ''Have other users had this problem and there IS NO WAY TO FIX IT, but to wipe out the hard drive?'' ''Yes, that's right, thank you for calling Acer.''
MY camera stopped working, by the way, when my Acer webcam SOFTWARE simply and mysteriously DISAPPEARED. I reinstalled it from a download...
Okay, so after a lot of frustration because I don't know much about computers at all, I think I have it fixed. I went into control panel - programs and features, and selected the camera. Then if you go to change, you can fix it with the previous program. It seems to have worked for me! I wish I could be more specific, but I really was just shooting in the dark. Hope this works for you!
