Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have an aspire 5532 laptop. It was said that they had a built in camera. I used it once before and then I had to get my whole computer rebooted. I tried pressing F6 to turn it on and it wont turn on. I used it for the video chat on skype once before I had to get it rebooted. Can you help me figure out why it isnt working now? Also does this laptop have a built in microphone?

I have the same laptop, and i got the same problem with the camera, but see what i found. The built-in camera is located in the same piece of plastic that camera does. Then, if you open/close the laptop so many times, this seems to damage the camera connection and is like it doesnt have any camera. So when i want to use the camera, i simply push with my thumb around the camera, and run the program/chat or anything that i will use the camera. Of course, you first look at the drivers, if correct , then try the other solution i post. Hope it solve it.

Yes, the Acer Aspire 5532 comes with all essential connectivity features, for face-to-face communication with friends and family, you can use the built-in Acer Crystal Eye web cam available on the front screen panel. To access the webcam click my computer scroll down the mouse and in the scanners and camera section you will see the usb video device. Click it to activate the camera.

How do you open/activate the aspire 5532 camera


Go to Hardware,in your control panel and do a hardware search to see if windows detects the camera.It may already be partially installed and needs addition drivers to completely load it.Your laptop should already have come with the driver software(CD/DVD) that contain all the drivers needed for your laptop:)

You will need some software or programs like Yahoo Messenger or Skype or WebCam software to use your webcam. Check online to see what type of software does Acer provides for your make and model and you may download it from their website.

Acer Aspire 5532


webcam has own microphone which use USB like camera. Windows has own port for microphone.
go to software options which you are using with camera and change recording device to different one " it should be named like "USB mic" or something like that.
i would check to software included to camera too

Does the Acer Aspire 5532 have a built in webcam


No,it doesn't. But there are many other ways to connect a camera to your ACER,it just wouldn't be built in obviously. I have the same computer,which means i have the same problem and unfortunately no WE Aspire 5532 users don't have a built in webcam.
