Go to device manager and right click on the audio device and select "Update Driver". That may work. If it is not in device manager then you will have to get the Audio driver installer from the manufacturers web site
if you have a usb keyboard and mouse this isn't too difficult to troubleshoot, plug them in, boot the computer and you can manipulate the pc like normal. then go to control panel>system>device manager, and check and see if there is a conflict with the drivers, and you can visit the acer website and download the proper ones.
Have you manually install the Opearting system? Connect to internet and automatically search available dirver on the net. If the webcam dont even shows in device manager, install the complete firmware driver software of your laptop, this will enable the chip to operate to it maximum features and all devices attached will be detected, the thats the time you can install drivers in each device.
you are probably running xp go to help and type in find new hardware sounds like somehow your drive got deleted in the hardware and device manager this will work with vista too unless the drive went bad naturally
I believe your windows is corrupt.
Try to reload your operating system, i have seen the windows corrupted and cause problem like yours.
If you have usb mouse (external), use the usb mouse and you can check in device manager,
I believe you will see many "!" mark on the drivers.
so solution is reload the operating system.
I had the same problem with the Extensa 5420-5687 as well, I went to the device manager and found my crystal eye webcam (there was a yellow exclaimation point on it) I tried to update the driver software by having it search automatically for the software, but it just said that it was up to date...that still didnt fix my problem. So i tried browsing my computer for the driver. I picked "let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer" I then clicked on "Acer crystal eye webcam" then i hit next, it then installed the updated driver. After that my webcam worked again!
