    I've tried reinstalling the driver but it won't let me continue past the "please plug in your webcam now" screen

    Well, it came back for a bit this morning, it worked fine, I used it in AIM for a few minutes, then it went white and disappeared from my computer again. Not even in Device Manager anymore.

Reinstall the driver for the webcam and also the application to make it work. If this do not resolve the issue you need to get the connectivity checked.

Thanks

    Uninstall the webcam. Install Windows update. Restart your computer and then reinstall the driver again.



    Thanks.

Hello sir my web camara is not working the model is aspire-5332 please help me to fix it thank you,john


Reinstall the webcam driver. You can download it from here - http://www.laptop-software.com/acer-software/acer-aspire-5332-windows-vista-7-drivers/

If still the same issue exists, check "Device Manager" (to open Device Manager right click on the "My Computer" or "Computer" icon then click properties, then click the Hardware tab, then click Device Manager) the webcam should be under "Imaging Devices". If it is not listed or detected, that means there might be a problem with the driver not properly installed or there is a problem on the webcam itself.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

My acer aspire one webcam isnt working.everytime i click view my cam it displays-the webcam is not supported.sorry no webcam was found in your device...i tried to fix it in the control panel under device...


Suggest this problem may be resolved by restoring the webcam's drivers
The acer aspire one has a hidden partition with installation files to restore
1. the operating system to its factory default
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)
In windows
1. click on start at bottom left of Taskbar
2. hover cursor over All Programs then Acer Empowering Technology
3. click on Acer eRecovery Management
4. click on Reinstall applications/drivers
5. go to the row for the webcam and click the install icon on the right

Crystal eye webcam


There is a utility bar that you can install that lets you change the default application folder:

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
