I have this Acer laptop AOD250 that I bought for my mother in 2009, so that she could use it to do Skype in India and talk to us here in the US. Well, recently I was in India and to cut the long story short, it was out of warranty and the screen was not working, so I decided to get it fixed by one of the local vendors.
I am back in US now and computer works fine except that when I want to do Skype, it cannot detect a Webcam. I thought it might be a driver issue, so I downloaded a driver from Acer website and when I click on install icon, it tells me that there is no webcam attached to the laptop. Now, can this be the BIOS issue as being discussed somewhere else or was I ripped off when I took my computer to the local guy and he removed the camera? Is it possible to remove the built-in webcam? Thanks.
