I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: acer aspire 5315 webcam not working in windows 10

Just thought to add that my 5315 runs Win 10 just fine, except that I can't work out how to get the webcam to work. Win 10 has installed a programme called CAMERA which although it is in the Apps list which come up in All apps, cannot be either started or removed from the list ??????
I tried installing several different webcam drivers for the 5315 but none of them work. I have uninstalled them all now and will do some more research for a solution.

After recently using web root windows washer to reformat a hard drive using the system eraser. I inserted my retail copy of Windows 7 to undergo a clean install but half way through the installation the laptop froze. I therefore restarted the laptop and the windows surprisingly re-commenced and carried on where it had left off. However once the installation had complete the laptop was in a very unstable state whereby if you attempted to open a program you would receive the blue screen of death. So I therefore re - ran the system eraser software to re wipe the hard drive.Now when I attempt to start the installation it will start up 1st time and get as far as the scrolling bar and states windows files are loading then once this is complete I receive the blue screen again. 1st time I received it I believe it saidIRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUALSo I again restarted the laptop by pressing and holding the power button as the computer had also froze, after a few attempts of powering up the laptop nothing would happen unless I left it for an hour or 2 (wouldn't matter if left plugged in or unplugged)After said hour or 2 the computer would start up again, it would do the same as before then display the blue screen, this time it's statingMemory management error!!I have wiped hard drives god knows how many times with the same software and never had any problems.

Answer:Acer aspire 5315 won't reinstall windows 7 after reformat

You don't give the reason you reformatted and reinstalled. If your initial issue happened to be due to a hardware fault then obviously formatting and reinstalling the software wouldn't help, although you might now get a different error. It would be worth removing the RAM and cleaning the edge connectors with a pencil eraser, then pop the sticks in and out a few times to clear any oxide off the sockets. While you are in there do the same for anything with edge connectors, such as the display card (if any). Also ensure all plugs and sockets are pressed firmly home.If you were trying to install with a hardware fault present you might still have to do it again after you've fixed the hardware because this could have caused a corrupted reinstall.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Question: Acer Aspire 5315

Recently had purchased a laptop, an Acer Aspire 5315. This laptop was originally preinstalled with Windows Vista Basic. However the system was wreaking alot of havoc, so was convinced by a Tech Room to downgrade the system to Windows XP I had done this without back anything up and now wish that I hadn't. Now what I would like to know, if there is any place available on the net such as the Acer website where I can download an Acer eRecovery file or CD as such? As at this time I would very much like to be able to put this laptop back to it's original state.
I was at the Acer site where I had downloaded all necessary drivers and whatever else it was that one needed for this laptop, and when it came to me installing the Acer eRecovery file, it said that I needed to install the Framework first which I had done, the system still does not work and am wondering how I can still get this recovery onto my laptop to redo the harddrive?

Answer:Webcam not working on Acer Aspire SW5-011

After installing windows update from the windows 10 Operating System, you are still facing issue with webcam to be working. To help you further, it is advised to uninstall the previous webcam drivers from the laptop and then let the windows 10 automatically reinstall it by its own. To uninstall webcam drivers, please follow the steps given below:- Press ?Windows? key + ?R? key on the keyboard.- Type in ?devmgmt.msc? in the run box and hit Enter.- Now device manager will open up, search for ?Imaging devices? from the list.- Right click on ?Imaging devices? and click on ?Properties?.- Now click on ?Driver? tab and then click on ?Uninstall? button to uninstall the webcam drivers.- Restart the system once the drivers are uninstalled and then wait for a while to windows automatically install the drivers.If issue persists, it is recommended to contact Acer Support Center for further assistance from the link given below:http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/ Hope this will help you.

Hello, I recently upgraded my Acer Aspire 5315 from Windows Vista to Windows 7. I noticed that the fan wasn't working and it was over heating. But then I installed the epower management and it fixed it. But now, when I close the lid and it goes into sleep mode, when I wake it up, the fan won't work. It won't until I restart. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Answer:Acer Aspire 5315 overheating

How old is the system? Have you tried contacting Acer about the issue to determine why your fan does not start?

You could also try hibernate instead of sleep. To access hibernate, you will need to use advanced power options. It is under the sleep setting shown in 5. B) in the Power Plan Settings - Change tutorial.

Hey guys.

A friend of mine spilt coffee on her Acer Aspire 5315 and it shut down. She didnt try it again since as she thought she had ruined it. However she gave it to me to look at it, and it powered on fine and came to the logon screen. I left it for 15mins to make sure everything was working and the battery went.

Ever since then, it wont turn on. I have used a random charger to charge it and also bought a universal charger. The green battery light comes on when the charger is turned on, but it wont switch on. If I take out the battery and plug in the charger, nothing happens at all.

With the random charger i wiggled it a bit and the battery light changed from green to orange (saying its charging i presume), but wouldn't stay on orange.The light bulb sign also went orange (what is that sign?)

Is it a faulty power jack or something else? As i have had it turned on before im dam sure its not the motherboard but how can i test it?

Many thanks

Answer:Acer Aspire 5315 problems

Hello TheKillerQueen and welcome to TSF,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but turning on the computer was the wrong thing to do...

Coffee crystallizes when the liquid evaporates leaving behind a conductive residue...

Powering on the computer without a proper tear down and clean likely resulted in short circuits which damaged motherboard components.

If the notebook was operating correctly before the spill, it is unlikely a damaged DC jack will be the culprit.

It is highly probable that the board is now damaged beyond repair.

Hi

A while back i was given an Acer 5315 laptop, the HDD was busted good and wouldnt even read under USB to SATA adaptor.

replacing the drive was easy enough, like most laptops the drive is in a really accessible place.

Not being a lover of Vista i decided to install XP on it, now as you know XP install disk dont have native SATA drivers and wont see a SATA drive without loading extra drivers during the install routine.

Not being sure which drivers were needed i did a google on the subject and came across this site here...SoulPass.

Its a really good guide and with a little care and time anyone can use the site to install XP on almost any of the acer range.

So for a long time now ive been running XP and am quite happy with it.

But back to my title and the reason why im writing this post.

The time has come to sell the laptop, like most im always looking to upgrade and i decided that it would sell better if i had Vista on it as this was how it came originally, and have the acer restore method as mentioned in the blurb

But of course the original drive that had the recovery partition on it was gone long ago and with it any chance of restoring the laptop to its original condition.

So i did a google and found the disks, but they were costing anywhere from £50 onwards.

However i found a seller on Ebay that had the disks for just £5, so i ordered them.

The disks arrived and so did the 80GB drive i had ordered.

Seems simple enough, put the drive... Read more

A friend has asked me to install Windows 7 on an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop.
No problem I said
I set the boot order to boot from disk and put the disk in.
Instead of the expected "press any key to continue" I get a black screen with "select CDROM boot type:_" with a flashing cursor.
I'd never seen this before but I attempted to type in "normal"- a guess- and it seems I have no keyboard input at all. I tried all the letters and numbers plus Fkeys and nothing.
I cannot type anything in.
I than tried ctrl/alt/del and this ended the process but that seems to be the only key combination working.

Answer:My acer aspire 5315 wont boot up?

Rather than using the recovery / repair options from you hard drive you could use your Windows Vista CD/DVD.If you don't have one (as is normally the case these days) you can download the vista recovery CD from this page (you probably need the 32 bit version):http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windo...NOTE:these are torrent links so you will need to install a small torrent client. I recommend utorrent which can be downloaded from here:http://www.utorrent.com/Once you have downloaded this ISO file, you will need to burn it "As an image" using the burn image option of your burning software. If you burn it any other way the CD will not work.___________________________________________? When everything else fails, read the instructions.

Hi all, I'm rather a newbie at laptops, got some knowledge about desktops though.

My problem: I have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop, came originally with Vista, though I formatted it and installed it with Win Xp using a slipstreamed XP CD.

Laptop is about 18 months old, but has seen heavy usage, approx. 18 hours/day!

Yesterday my wife was on the laptop when it froze on her and nothing would respond, so she switched it off! Left it for a few minutes and when she switched it on, it says system disk not found -- insert bootable disk. Did the obvious, no cd in cd rom, etc.

Checked Bios and it says HDD not installed.

HDD had been subjected to temperatures of about 80 degrees C a week or so ago, problems with fan.

I've heard and read stories of the "Click of Death" etc which indicates HDD is gone. How loud are these clicks? If I put my ear against the casing of the laptop, I hear the hdd (I think it is the hdd) doing a "rattling" sound and a few clicks when starting up, don't know if that is an indication or not.

I put my win xp install cd, cannot detect a HDD. I did not have right size screwdrivers last night, have got them today at work. Can anyone give suggestions on how to fix this?

Does it sound as if HDD is gone? If I open laptop up, what should I be looking for?

Sounds like your hard drive is dead. The 'click of death' is the sound of the write head on the hard drive crashing and hitting the platter or getting stuck. It is an obvious sound and you'd be able to hear a semi-lound clicking when the drive is being accessed.

You can try to take the hard drive out, then reseat it to see if that fixes it. If not you'll have to purchase a new hard drive since the BIOS isn't even detecting it (meaning this isn't an XP issue, but a hardware issue). The hard drive is usually just four screws on the bottom of the laptop that allows you to slip the hard drive out - very easy.

Answer:acer aspire E71-571 series webcam stopped working

You must disable "Change TPM (TCM) State" in BIOS. (BIOS -> Security tab)First, add a supervisor password, so that function will be available.Save BIOS settings and restart the computer.That's how I managed to fix it.

So, I have an Acer Aspire 5750(Not a z or g, just 5750) and it runs Windows 7. About this time last year my webcam stopped working suddenly. Nothing to my knowledge happened to make it stop, I just came home one day and it wouldn't work.

I'm having a hard time finding a driver to install for it, since the Acer website doesn't seem to have one, I uninstalled the driver using device manager and restarted my computer for it to reinstall and that didn't fix the problem. I also used eRecovery and that didn't seem to work either.

I've tried reinstalled the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam program, and when I open it gives me this message:
"Warning
Acer Crystal Eye Webcam cannot connect to your webcam (1.3M HD WebCam). Try selecting another capture device within settings, or close any applications that may be using this webcam and then restart Acer Crystal Eye Webcam."

Another odd problem is that even the USB webcam's will not work with it, so I'm not entirely sure that the driver is the problem. I've done my fair share of research on this problem and cannot come up with a solution. It says the same warning message when I try to connect the Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 that I have to the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam program. I think it recognizes them, but just won't connect to them for some reason.

I assure you, it is not the program, because I have tried Skype, Cameroid, the LifeCam program that the USB webcam came with, and much more... Read more

Answer:Acer Aspire Notebook built in (and USB) webcam not working.

maybe the internal WebCam is not working correctly, but the computer thinks that it is so is not allowing any other type of WebCam to work hard to go into device manager and make sure that the internal WebCam is on installed, if not uninstall it restart the computer and see if it works, and get back to me.

I have an Acer Aspire 5315 series laptop, and it won't startup.

First it takes me to the screen "launch startup repair or launch windows normally" I've clicked startup repair several times and it never fixes it. I've also tried starting windows normally and it comes up with this black screen with the font

!! 0xc0000034 !! 250/86580 (_00000000000.cdf-ms)

It usually freezes between 8700-8800/86580

Usually, it goes to this screen no matter what I do.

Now I've been trying each of the advanced startup repair techniques, still none work. Each of them freeze at 99% pretty much. Memory Diagnostic froze at 99%, windows system restore was finalizing the restore for over an hour, I have no idea what to do with the command prompt, I don't have the correct discs apparently for complete system restore, and startup repair never works.
I bought these disks from the acer company and one of the steps says: Reboot the computer and press F12 for Acer when the splash screen first appears. I don't know when the splash screen even appears. So basically I don't think the disks work.

Is there any hope for my laptop?

Thanks to anyone who helps.

Answer:Acer Aspire 5315 series doesn't startup

It sounds to me like your operating system has become corrupted.

The fact that the computer did not shut down properly, causes you to keep going back to a screen saying just that.

Each time this cycle happens your operating system becomes more corrupted.

You should try running chkdsk /f to see if this fixes the issue.

I do not know off hand who your hard drive vendor is but you should try running a DOS version of their diagnostic disk utility to check for bad sectors on the hard drive.

If you can provide that hardware information, we can point you to a DOS utility that runs independent of the hard drive in question.

Bruce.

When I hit the power button the first thing that comes up is a "enter current password" box. After hitting enter and disabling the system, I get no hash or error number displayed. I don't get an Acer boot screen allowing me to boot to my BIOS screen to boot from a recovery/BIOS password remover CD or USB. None of my F keys are helping do anything before I get that password screen.. I have to have the "current password"...What do I do?! D:!!!!

My partners Aspire 5315 laptop will not connect to our newly installed Virgin wifi. Virgin have tried to access while hard wired and can see no issue with wifi, my laptop runs without issue Samsung Q35.
When trying to connect Windows Network Diagnostics the message that comes up is;
Cannot communicate with primary DNS Server(194.168.4.100).
Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response.

We can take her Aspire laptop out and connect to friends WIFI (Virgin, BT etc.) without any issues but cannot do this on our own wifi at home. Every diagnostic thats been run shows no issues with anything.

The wireless adapter details are as follows;
Adapter name:Atheros AR5007EG Wirelss Network Adapter
MAC Address: 00-1F-3A-85-4B-62
DHCP Enabled: Enabled
IP Address: 192.168.0.6
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DHCP Server: 192.168.0.1
Primary DNS Server: 194.168.4.100
Secondary DNS Server: 194.168.8.100

When I hard wire the internet through the ethrnet connection I have no issues but kinda defeats the purpose of WIFI for my partner.

Any Einsteins out there that can offer assistance?
 

Answer:Cannot connect Acer Aspire 5315 to home Wifi

Is Einstein the one who talked about perseverance and making hundreds of mistakes before hitting on a winner? Well, anyhow, the Einsteins here are probably too busy inventing or something to spend a couple months putting together the information you need.

The following was put together mostly by etaf with a little help from me.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros AR5007EG & AR5007
We have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters for about a year, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and windows Vista.

The adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
--- Please post back here if that works or does not work.

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver." That apparently has worked for some posters.

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section, as some manufactures, appear to now have a working driver available.

I have Vista 32. Last night I opened up my computer and everything came up ok, but I couldn't connect with the internet. After a few attempts to re-connect I gave up and shut the computer. I think I may have still been in the area where you look for wireless connections. The next time I opened up my computer it was in some sort of diagnostic mode and I can't seem to get it out. I have a screen come up that says choose a language and then when I select US and "next" it takes me to the System Recovery Options screen. I select Startup Repair and only get a message saying "Startup Repair could not detect a problem." I've tried the System Restore, but can't get anywhere with that option because it says I have not set up a restore point. And unfortunately I didn't create a back-up "restore" DVD when I had the chance, so that option is not available either. I went to the MSDOS command prompt and it appears to have the default drive set as "X". I ran the "dir" command and see I still have over 700 files in the "X" drive and also a number of files in the "C" drive. I'm not able to switch over to the "C" drive to try to give a command to get back to Windows thru MSDos. Is there a shortcut or hotkey or something that I can do to get back into Windows?

My sister has been given a friends old Acer Aspire 5315, that still works fine. I used the recovery partition to restore it ready for her to use, BUT even after that, there is very little room.

Looking in My Computer i have 2 partitions:
1 ACER(C) 32.5GB (6.01 FREE)
2 DATA(D) 32.2GB (13.7 FREE)

Looking in My Computer - Disk Management i have the following: DISK 0 Basic 74.53GB
1 ---------- {EISA Configuration} 9.76 (9.76 FREE)
2 ACER(C) {System, Boot, Page File, Actice, Crash Dump, Primary Partition} 32.51GB (6.21 FREE)
3 DATA(D) {Primary Partition} 32.26GB (13.75 FREE)

I was thinking maybe there is a way to resize the partitions to give us more active room to use.

Has anyone got any ideas looking at what they can see ? I can not even work out which is the Recovery Partition. I am guessing DATA (D) and what is the Blank Partition (9.76) that shows up in Disk Management ?

I can not believe ACER would sell a machine that once running you only have 6GB of space left to use.

I have purchased a second hand ACER ASPIRE 5334 from a friend. He wiped the drive and re-installed Windows 7 and so up and running.

The only problem I have is that the computer seems not to recognise it has its own Webcam and so it doesn't work.

I thought it might be a driver missing so I tried to download the driver from both the driver disk that come with it and the Acer website, they both told me the webcam couldn't be found. It is there as I can see it. I looked in the devices manager and the computer does not seem to recognise it has a camera.

The computer did some windows updating, in fact 93 updates and then I looked again in devices and there was a webcam but still would not work. The next day I thought I would download the webcam driver from the disk and it still said there was no webcam, I looked again indevices and it was gone

Any ideas please

In the past few months my laptop has slowed down drasticly and I'm not sure why. Some examples:

-alt-tabbing between programs is slow
-changing directories in Windows Explorer is slow
-opening new tabs/closing tabs in both Firefox and Chrome is slow/mouse becomes unresponsive
-programs become unresponsive for a bit, happens often with Firefox and Chrome
-I lose mouse control for a bit

The above examples don't always occur but they do happen frequently enough to be pretty annoying. I run frequent virus scans via avast! and have never had any issues. I also use COMODO Firewall and keep both avast! and COMODO updated. I run Windows Update as new updates are available.

System:

-Acer Aspire 5315-2326 Laptop
-Vista Basic
-Intel Celeron 550 2.0GHz
-1GB DDR2
-1.5 years old
-more than 10% space is free on both HDDs

Questions:

1. I've never run a disk defrag, should I use the Windows one or pick up a 3rd party utility?
2. Is there a utility suite I can run that will check for and fix any issues I might have?
3. Is it possible this is due to a Windows update?
4. A fresh boot reveals a 750MB memory usage (out of 1GB) in the Performance tab of the Windows Task Manager, is that not fairly high? I only have an avast!, COMODO, DU Meter, and NetLimiter 2 Pro running.

This unit had win7 on it and everything was working fine. I reloaded back Vista and updated, all drivers showed as installed except for the wireless network so I downloaded all 3 wireless network drivers from Acer's site. Only the Atheros installed but still does not work, the Device ID for the Atheros is:PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_001C&SUBSYS_04281468&REV_01 The wired network connection works fine but with the wireless, the double pc icon in the system tray shows but not with the "flowers" like when I connect the wired ethernet cable. The difference between when win7 was on this unit is both the wireless connection and the dvd which worked perfect but now after reloading Vista, the wireless does not work and the dvd also does not show as well, I had to install codecs for it to show at all. This doesn't make sense, why would win7 work to perfection and not the vista which was what this unit came with?

Answer:Vista laptop slowing down (Acer Aspire 5315-2326)

1GB is not very much memory to run Vista, IMO. Not sure why it has suddenly slowed if it was running faster before. Could be the update. It is possible you have two versions of Windows running at once. It could be a spyware or some other program running .. . . 750GB while idling is fairly high. . . . but, Vista takes more than others to run. . . you may have to install another stick of RAM
Before you do, There are many utility programs that may help you. Check Cnet.com in the download sections. Many of these are free or have free trial.

You can also check task manager to see if there is anything odd running that shouldn't be there. Some are obvious, others are tougher to spot (if you are not sure about something, DONT remove it, cause it could mess you up)

Hi, new here... just looking for a bit of advice as i'm stumped!

A couple of months ago, i switched of my perfectly working laptop... went to switch it back on again and had blank screen with just cursor. I tried re-installing the OS but a combination of wrong discs and stress meant i gave up. Finally got around yesterday to paying someone to re-install the OS and low and behold a working laptop. Until last night when i went to turn it back on again and this time startup wouldn't get past the "breathing" windows image. The person who repaired has now re-installed yet again (fortunately at no cost to me) but i'm now terrified to switch off incase it happens again.

The person who repaired it says its not the hard-drive as he ran a diagnostic and it's working fine. He's also done checks for viruses and malware each time and found nothing. Oh, and system restore won't work once the startup problem occurs.

Has anyone came across this before and can reccommend how to fix the issue as i'm guessing it's only a matter of time before it happens again!

i upgraded my acer aspire one (AOA150Bb) to windows 7 home premium unfortunately the web cam is not in my computer is there any way of getting it there???

i know i was on here like 2 days ago with a different problem but windows 7 is a hell of a lot better than XP when you get it working.

Answer:Acer aspire one webcam

   Warning
These drivers are for your model computer (AOA150) but they're for Windows XP. Run them in compatibility mode, or download the Win7 drivers for the AOD150 below
LiteOn 5.8.33.1 Windows XP
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFi...C=Acer&SC=PA_6

Suyin 1.0.1.3 Windows XP
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFi...C=Acer&SC=PA_6

When you download the program, right click on it, go to properties, click on compatibility, then select Windows Xp from the drop down list.



   Warning
The next drivers are for the AOD150, they're for Win7 and by the same manufacturer, but may not be for the same model webcam
LiteOn 0.73 Win7 32bit

I got an old acer mini laptop form my mother while im waiting for my main laptop to be fixed and shipped but the laptop has a webcam but it doesn't work and the computer won't recognize it. I thought it was because there was no software for it but when i downloaded software the software won't open claiming there is no camera detectable. I tried using face book to see if it would pick up and where you set the flash settings it recognizes there is one there but it won't show up when okay is pressed. it operates on windows xp. any ideas whats up with it?

Question: Acer Aspire Webcam

Driver For Crystal Eye Webcam.I have an acer aspire 1810TZ with integrated webcam. I am running windows 7 64 bit. When the computer boots The Device manager detects an "unknown device" in the USB controller section with the error message "windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)".  In initially I tried uninstalling then scanning for hardware changes but the unknown device error reappeared.Since the aspire comes with a webcam and the webcam does not launch I suspect the unknown device is the webcam.I have tried uninstalling the device in Device Manager, switching off computer, removing all USB connections and rebooting without success. The unknown device is still detected. Automatically searching for the updated driver responds with "the best driver for your device is already installed".I have tried installing all 3 camera device drivers, one at a time listed on the acer support site http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html (chicony, liteon, suyin) but without success.With the exception of the webcam there are no other issues with the laptop.Any suggestions or input gratefully received.Many thanks.

Did the keys never worked? Or have they recently stopped working? If they have recently stopped working, check if you have a restore point that is older than the day you started facing this issue. If you have such a restore point, try doing a system restore by following the steps mentioned in the article below:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows-8/restore-refresh-reset-pc

The webcam is fuzzy and the audio can barely be heard even at the highest volume. The support people's only answer is those are the specs for this computer. Has anyone found a solution to make the audio a decent volume? Or, does anyone else have these problems with this laptop?

Received my immaculate 2nd user laptop today off eBay. Very pleased.Tested it and everything is in perfect working order. Bargain!I was extremely disappointed however to discover there is no webcam.Acer couldn't help as it is a legacy model from 2009.Can't believe it has Bluetooth but no webcam.Has anybody installed one? Can it support one?Seems strange as Skype was around in 2009 wasn't it?

We show this model actually shipped with Linux. Unfortunately the webcam driver is not available as a separate device driver as it is built in to the OEM version of Windows 10, on models that ship with it from factory. Perhaps other users here have a suggestion you can use, to get the camera functioning.

Ok, so I upgraded my OS with a student discount from Windows 7 starter to Windows 7 Pro. I have an Acer Aspire One A0532h netbook I bought right around a month ago and upgraded about two weeks ago. Before the upgrade, my webcam worked just fine. Now I am unable to even locate the files for the webcam anywhere! Even when I do a search on the whole computer, nothing comes up. It is an integrated webcam. I tried going to the acer support website where I specified my exact computer, model, and such and downloaded all three setups for the webcam but they all had the same error; something along the lines of "no camera detected" or "no camera is plugged in". I dont understand. If anyone could help me, it would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi all,
Not sure if I'm posting this to the correct forum, but...

I'm asking for my sister. She purchased an Acer Aspire 5516 a couple of days ago and her webcam is not working from the start. She called Acer tech support (very little help) and they directed her to their website where she could download the driver for the webcam. After installing the driver she restarted the laptop and when she tried to open the webcam, she gets a pop-up that says, "Camera not found".
