    I don't see any CIF devices, but, that is the kind that I found to be on
    a Windows system, when I went to install Linux. Never did get that
    working in Linux, though it pops up in Windows.

    I know that the google search I just did brings back lots about Acer
    laptop video ... I searched Google with the last line above...

    Have you tried lsusb? I'd think that a built-in webcam would be connected
    by USB, not PCI. My notebook doesn't have a built-in webcam, but its
    built-in Bluetooth interface shows up as a USB device.

    There's also an outside chance that the webcam is a FireWire device...
    gscanbus might return something interesting if that's the case. (If there's
    no FireWire controller in your computer, you can obviously skip this check.)
