Re: Inbuild Camera not working
I do not think the camera has anything to do with the computer itself not working.
you are so focused on the camera that is hard to understand if just the camera quit working or the whole computer.
if it is just the camera, go to my- computer and bring up the camera and turn it off.. and then see if the computer will work.
Hope this helps

Web cameras won't turn on until a program accesses them. Most laptops with a built in web cam come with software to take pictures and video.
Try clicking on the windows icon (start menu) and typing "cam" into the search bar. This should bring up the web camera application to test and make sure it is working. You could also use an application like skype or a website that allows live camera uploads like youtube (account required).
If this doesn't work, make sure there is a driver properly installed and the hardware is working in device manager (control panel > system & security > device manager tab).
i would go to acer.com and reinstall the built in webcam. I would also go into start, right click my computer, click properties, go into the hardware tab, click device manager and see if there is any yellow shields. that means u need to reinstall the driver. if there isnt i would check the source in the camera software
