Hi,

Normally Acer laptops uses Crystal Eye for their webcam. Try doing a search for Crystal Eye in the search field of Windows 8 and see if you'll get any result. If it will not give you anything, do try to download and install the Camera Software.

Here's the link for the Camera Software of your laptop:
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Application/Camera/Camera_Acer_2.0.1005.22012_W8x64_A.zip?acerid=634982520393864674&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%20V3-551&OS=8P1&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_6

Once installed reboot your laptop for all the changes to take effect then test it again.

this specific laptop is not windows 8 it is windows 7 please helpppppp it does have a camera it even says its working properly but it is not by that i mean i have searched this laptop & can not find camera icon camera to click on to even open it up, it also says This device is working properly. & under general, driver, details tabs it has update driver software, then i clicked that & it gives two choices one is search computer automatically for camera driver, & other option is manually select , i clicked automatic so that it automatically searches for any and all updates.... earlier when i did this it came back & said camera working properly & up to date but clearly my camera isnt working for some weird reason
