Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, Also have this problem - but have 5732z running Windows7 (out of the box). the Acer website has 3 x webcam drivers - installed all by none work (MSN messenger tells me that there is no webcam installed...)

When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default app
will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the
same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel.
One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messager or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat.. If this doesnt work you may not have the right drivers. Go to the acer website or a 3rd party driver site like www.driveragent.com and update the drivers! Also if running on batt it may be disabled to save power.. right click on my computer click properties and device manager and make sure it is on the list of hardware, or newer verisons of windows control panel > system > Hardware

I have this laptop, there is 3 specs in this model. For some reason the high spec one does not have a web cam or bluetooth. It has the space on the front for one, but the internal camera is removed.

I dont even bother with the drivers and the webcam still works. Windows 7 auto detects it. You can use it with msn messenger, yahoo, manycam, etc. I like this laptop, no driver nonsense every time i reinstall.
