Acer Built-In Webcam Not Working
Posted on 2008-11-11
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.
