    If you don't know the model of your camera download the drivers for all cameras(for example liteon,surin,Chicony).Then install one by one the drivers and each time check if an icon has been created or if the camera is in your programs(you can create an icon from there).

    Hm. Some of these webcams (like my Suyin) work with Windows (7) default drivers. Acer only provides some (more or less useless) front end software then.
