Having problems with your Acer eMachines 520-2890 Notebook ?

Emachine e520 does it have a built in webcam? it looks like it does but it cant find it

Answers :

Hello sir,
Yes there is an web cam in your laptop its on the top of your monitor(display), it seems to be like an circle inside an square. you need to install driver utilities for the mother board cd which have been issued to you when you bought the system.
Or you can download the drivers from this link:
Thank you for bringing your question to the experts on FIX-YA. I am not sure what you are seeing that resembles a built-in Web Cam, but this particular model does not. Here are the complete specs for this model.

The good news is that this laptop should be able to run any USB Web cam quite easily. You can pick up a decent USB cam for under $15.00.
