    The built in webcam on my Acer laptop stopped working. When I tried to use it, a message popped up that said I needed to update it. So I let the computer update. After that my computer wasn't able to detect my webcam. So I uninstalled it and tried to reinstall it from the internet but it still doesn't. It installed but when I try to open it, it says "Camera not found". Can someone please Help me? I dont know what to do!

    1.you can try system restore to when it was working
    2. you can go to device manager (control panel - hardware and sound - device manager) :
    see if you can find the webcam
    do you see any yellow or red Xs in the device manager ?
