Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3690 Notebook ?

Built in cam won't work.

\015 I have acer aspire 3690. At first my cam was working, I was using BisonCam. I did not like it so I decided to delete it which was wrong, so i redownloaded it and downloaded Acer Orbicam. Now my built in webcam will not work on either of them. I need help please, i would like to start using my webcam asap.\015

Answers :

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
