I have an Acer 5672 and now when I try to use my built-in webcam it's giving me a message saying that it is disconnected......Which is impossible because I am looking at it.

Appears Acer's Orbicam is an epic fail:crying:

Any Ideas? Solutions?

A Pic

I repeat the camera is built in

On some new laptops you have to turn them on using a combination of keys, look at your function keys for a picture of a camera. On the laptop I enabled, it was the f7 key ... so I pressed Fn & F7 and it turned on the web cam.

http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq107/Caliper68/Emoticons/c-bash.gif Doesnt even show a option for a camera driver.


I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling the camera driver to no end and I am about to just snap this ******* camera off the top of the screen this is retarded!

I'll never buy a damn acer ever again as long as I live.

I've been quiet happy with my Acer laptop... Have you tried calling their technical support? Reading the Laptops documentation?
