Laptop not detecting internal webcam

  1. Hello,

    After reinstalling my Windows 7 to clear up my HDD it was missing some drivers but I fixed this by just downloading them, but today I wanted to start a skype video call and it didn't detect the webcam. I tried to download several drivers but after doing that it still doesn't work. I've looked on other threads like this and tried to do what fixed it for them but it didn't work for me.

    If I open msinfo32 and go to Problem Devices it doesn't show anything.

    My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5742ZG.

    Greetings,

    Like I've mentioned before, I've tried multiple drivers. I've also tried the official drivers. Didn't work either. I added a screen capture to this reply showing the error when I start the installing wizard
