Re: crystal eye webcam
I assume you have an ACER laptop, since you have a Crystal Eye webcam. Most likely the software for your webcam got corrupted or is malfunctioning. So you may have to uninstall then reinstall the software for the webcam. Your laptop or PC will most likely will come with drivers CD or software CD, so you can reinstall it again. Otherwise if you lost the CDs or can't find them, you can goto the manufacturer's website which is www.acer.com then find the specific model of the laptop or PC then download it.
If you can find it, I suggest you contact the manufacturer of your PC or thw webcam for further support.

simpliest thing would be to go to acer's website, click on support and then drivers downloads and download the webcam drivers and softwar for your webcam..install them and try to run the crystal eye software again...sounds like the program isnt actually there but the drivers are.
The first thing to check is if your webcam is working correctly. If you're running Windows XP, click on the "start" button, then click on "My Computer". Now double click on "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". It should now show a screen with video from the webcam (probably of your face in front of the computer).
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall
the software program. When the program asks you to connect the
camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
I had the same problem with the Extensa 5420-5687 as well, I went to the device manager and found my crystal eye webcam (there was a yellow exclaimation point on it) I tried to update the driver software by having it search automatically for the software, but it just said that it was up to date...that still didnt fix my problem. So i tried browsing my computer for the driver. I picked "let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer" I then clicked on "Acer crystal eye webcam" then i hit next, it then installed the updated driver. After that my webcam worked again!
