Re: aspire 7720-6155 wweb cam

It's likely a Skype setting. Try this in this exact order:
After turning on computer, insure that camera is connected ad recognized by computer,
Then start skype. In Skype: Choose Tools: Options, in the general tab (on the left) select video settings, click on "enable skype video" and "start my video automatically when I am in a call". Lastly under "select webcam:" click on the pull down menu and select your camera.
Save and you are ready to place your video call

I have an acer aspire 5536-5411 laptop, with built in web cam. i have no idea how to use it, please provide directions. Thank you

Sign up for Skype or install Windows Live Messenger or another service that supports the webcam like AOL Instant messaging. Then, the camera can be used with such software.

You can also search under 'web cam' in the help section of Windows 7.

Good luck on using your webcam.

How do u use web cam on a acer aspire? plaease help me

It will automatically pop up or turn on if you will be using video call in yahoo messenger or skype application. First if you do not have yahoo messenger or skype you have to download it from this website, for yahoo and for skype just click download latest version link and install the application. Register if you do not have an account so that you can sign in and you can test your webcam. Have a nice day!

I have a acer built in Web cam, but I dont know how to use it

There are various programs that come with the laptop that can be used to control the webcam. In my case there is a program called Acer Crystal Cam Webcam. If you can't find anything on your laptop, you can download the application from the site. Also you can download Skype. Skype will find the webcam and integrate it into its functionality.

I've just signed up with Skype and came to test my orbicam and the software opens but the usual view pops up and says web cam not found or not working??

Verify that video capture or any other program is not running since it will lock the cam. If not try reinstalling the drivers.

My orbicam is not working

You should go online and download the updated Driver for the orbicam (google on orbicam). Reinstall it, restart the computer, and then try the cam again. There may be something in Skype that helps config your cam.

Dont know how to operate my web cam.I have a ASPIRE 5315 with the web cam built in

Use a software that you may have got installed. It must be something like YouCam, maybe.

Or use a chat software like Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or ICQ. They have webcam options for video calls. But you can't take photos or videos there.
