    Is this an Acer Aspire One netbook? If not, what model is it? Did the camera work and then stop working?

go to start - programs and look for acer crystal eye webcam. It should be in the acer category under programs.

If this doesn't work, please tell me the model of your laptop so I can help more.

How can i turn on my acer 9300 web camera? It wasnt turning on at all.

to check for whether ur laptop integrated webcam works or not as in whether it has sufficient drivers etc download the yahoo messanger and then try finding "my webcam" from the menu. click on it and if ur webcam is seen then u have the drivers needed to run the webcam. now if webchat is the only reason why u need the webcam then this is the solution. but if u want to work with ur webcam on ur laptop what u need will be the camera software. it came with ur laptop installation cds install it from there

The webcam on my acer laptop will not let me record anything. i don't know how to turn it back on.

open device manager and find the camera and see does windows recognize it ? the acer website puts new drivers for webcams ,try to update it . if your webcam driver is installed , you must see a folder on start menu/all programs that is acer crystal eye . it has an app that run the webcam and turned it on .
if device manager doesn't show camera , you should show it to service center

I have a acer and it does not have the botton on it how do u turn on the webcam

The built-in webcam of most laptops runs via a program that's already installed onto your laptop. Check the programs section and look for the Acer utilites/programs section. Chances are it will have the webcam's utility program there.

As an alternative, check Acer's website for support on your model.
