Acer help

Acer Aspire 3690

Hi,
I had formatted my hard drive accidentally, my neighbour assisted me get things up and running again.

I cannot get my webcam working and did not receive any discs with the laptop.

I have been on the Acer website and looking for the driver to download but I cannot identify the type of camera that is built in.

Can anyone please help.

    Hi and thanks for the reply.
    I did what you suggested but although I have the Orbicam on my desk top and it does open, I get a message saying,
    " A web cam was not found or is not working properly"
    The built in web cam was working ok before.

  3. That's because there are no windows 7 drivers,and sometimes the vista drivers aren't a perfect fit!

    Hi again and please accept my apology, new to using a forum.
    I am running XP and not Windows 7
  5. UNINSTALL the other driver and install this one from the xp list!

    It will say something like....Camera Logitech

    Use the link i gave you and get it from the xp list!

  7. Hi and thanks for advice received. I will ask my neighbour to do as you have said as I have very minimal experience with this type of thing.
