Acer Built-In Webcam Not Working
Posted on 2008-11-10
Acer Internal Webcam Not Working Since Vista SP1 update installed & External Logitech Webcam does not work either
Acer Aspire 5680 running Vista Premium with SP1 built-in webcam not working since SP1 installed.
Tried many different things to get built-in Orbicam to work, all unsuccessfully. There are three different
possible manufacturers webcam that could be installed in the Acer, and I tried all three drivers and
utilities and none of them worked. So I gave up and went out
purchase a Logitech Quickcam Pro for Notebooks, and that does not work either. When I disable
the built-in webcam via device manager, it reinstalls the software automatically when I reboot.
When I try Logitech Quickcam on another laptop running Vista Premium with SP1 and no built-in
webcam it works just fine. So my theory is that somehow there is a conflict between the internal
webcam and the Logitech external.
So I am looking for help with how to keep the internal webcam from reinstalling itself and perhaps
allow the logitech to work, or actually figure out why the built-in stop working when I installed SP1.
I just want a webcam,. internal or external, to work on the Acer Aspire 5680
