    I have an Acer 5672 and now when I try to use my built-in webcam it's giving me a message saying that it is disconnected......Which is impossible because I am looking at it.

    Appears Acer's Orbicam is an epic fail:crying:

    Any Ideas? Solutions?

    I repeat the camera is built in

    On some new laptops you have to turn them on using a combination of keys, look at your function keys for a picture of a camera. On the laptop I enabled, it was the f7 key ... so I pressed Fn & F7 and it turned on the web cam.

    I've been quiet happy with my Acer laptop... Have you tried calling their technical support? Reading the Laptops documentation?
