Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Glad to HELP YOU!
If your camera is not accessible that means your DRIVER is missing or is outdated.
To update the driver double-click on MY COMPUTER > PROPERTIES > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER and select your camera (VIDEO DEVICE); right-click on it and in PROPERTIES select UPDATE DRIVER.
If this procedure won't work then you have to get a sort of driver detector to identify and to download the right driver for you. I'd suggest you to download DRIVER MAGICIAN Lite from HERE, to install it and to let it detect your driver.
There's another website where you can run an online check fro your missing driver. It's HERE and choose the middle option (IDENTIFY YOUR DRIVER).
Also I'd suggest you (if nothing from above will NOT WORK!) to check the electric connections to your webcam. But this procedure involves to open your Notebook.
My best wishes!

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.
If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.
You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.
