Windows 7: My Built In Webcam Is Not Appearing In 'Computer'

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
My Built In Webcam Is Not Appearing In 'Computer'

When I first bought my laptop installed with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit, the built in webcam was appearing in 'computer' but when I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit, it disappeared from 'computer'. My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5552 and my older sister also has an Acer laptop with a built in webcam and also not appearing in 'computer' and I think she is still using the default installed operating system because hers is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit And I don't think she would choose to just format and install the same exact OS right out of the box...I called Acer tech support and they say they can fix the problem remotely but for a fee of almost 100$ which I dont have...any help would be appreciated

by the way it dont actually really matter if it works or not because I have my laptop connected to a 52" 120 hz full hd lcd hdtv via hdmi cord so the laptop is closed and upside down with the battery taken out ...on my fireplace mantel...all i use it for is to download 1080p bluray rips and watch 1080p bluray rips via 2tb external harddrive

And the driver for the built in webcam does show up in device manager without any problems there and it is also up to date
