Acer generally uses the software "Crystal Eye" in its webcams. Make sure you have this software and drivers for the camera loaded. If you are not sure , the link below will take you to the general area to get them. Go to the link, insert the operating system you are using from the drop down menu and scroll down throughout the driver downloads and look for the downloads that reference "camera". In most cases the Acer Aspire series laptop used the "Suyin" model camera but that have also installed the "Chicony" model in a few, so I would download both and install the Suyin camera first to see if that is the one. The Crystal" software is very good when used in "skype", and video messaging.<br /> <br /> When you click on the link below, choose "notebook" then choose "Aspire" then choose "5517", now look below and there will be orange text that says "OPERATING SYSTEM" look to the right of that and you will see a drop down menu, choose your operating system and the drivers will appear below. Now if you are not sure entirely, do not fret, in most cases the drivers are the same regardless of the operating system. Try to pick an operating system that is 32 bit first and see if those drivers work, if not choose the 64 bit operating system. <br /> <br /> <a rel='nofollow' href=""></a>

    I'm currently on an Acer Aspire 5517. It does not ship with a webcam installed. The black round dot up top is not a camera. This is the model with the TK-42 processor.
