Hi, my Acer Aspire 5732z does have a web cam, but it won't work. I've de-installed the driver and downloaded a new one from the Acer website, but it still won't function. If I open up Acer...


If there are no error status codes under device manager, then either you have some OS corruption and need to reinstall the OS or the webcam is defective. I would be more inclined to say the latter.
Skype is a good test, since you've obviously done that its most likely bad.
You could test the os theory by downloading hiren boot cd, burn the image to disc and boot into the mini xp live part, install skype and driver under it and test the web cam.
If its under warrenty just have them replace the web cam, if not i could replace it at a reasonable price. Comment back for additional assistance.

When I had XP, my webcam on Skype worked fine. I recently upgraded to 7, however, and downloaded Skype. It says that a webcam is not present. I have the Gateway LT Series 1004U, and have tried downloading...


Did you download the drivers via model or serial number. Generally the webcams drivers that come with Gateway are in three. Be sure you unistall the one that doesn't work before installing the other, restarting your computer each time. Also check the dates of the drives compared to the time you purchase the machine, some driver may be old or updated. Lastly, which i am sure you've done, make sure you have chosen the correct Operating System if you are not downloading the file from the web cammed computer.

Webcam failure


Double check you drivers for the webcam to see if they are still working.

Go to control panel, system, device manager (hardware for XP).

Locate your web cam, IF you see a RED X than your driver is messed up or missing.

I would try reinstalling your software for the web cam. Either via cd or go to the vendor's web site.

What steps must I take to get my Acer Aspire One web camera to wo


If this unit is running XP Home:

The Aspire One should have come with the webcam driver preloaded so you should simply have to configure Skype or whatever app you wish to use to access the webcam.

Should you need to load drivers however:

There are 2 possible drivers for the Aspire One (in XP), the default driver is for a SUYIN cam (driver download) the other is for a LiteOn cam (driver download) [ try the SUYIN driver first ].

After verifying that the drivers are installed and functional you should be able to pull up Skype (or whichever app you wish to use for conferencing) and configure the webcam for use.

You may want to bookmark this URL in case you ever need to download any XP drivers for your unit...

Web cam use with skype


When you sign in to Skype, you'll need to check your settings (the tab where you change your wallpaper, sounds, privacy, etc. You'll find an area for configuring your webcam, just follow the directions and make sure you give Skype the permission to start your webcam. You can also change the settings of your webcam to automatically respond to programs you choose. It's a great cam, I was able to talk to my husband and kids very easily from Sweden via Skype in February, the sound is very good and the pictures are not bad at all. I also can talk to my friend in Sweden, now that I'm home and it works great.
