Make sure that you are clicking the correct icon, if the installer icon on your desktop is what you are clicking it will really install over and over again, check in the Programs menu forthe Crystal Eye icon and click that instead of what you have on the desktop.

Also make sure you put the installer from the desktop to the downloads folder and create a new Icon shortcut from the programs menu that should open up the Application.

When I tried to open the camcorder part of the web cam, the program wouldnt open. I uninstalled and tried to reinstall without success. Do i need to install another program in order for it to work?

SOURCE: acer crystal eye webcam cant use in yahoo messenger

Some newer cams are not compatible with Yahoo, check here to make sure yours is. If not (too new) then try a 3rd party software to run it through... I've used a free fun one called 'ManyCam' , if you run your laptop cam through that it should work on yahoo messenger.

Good luck!

Hi

The problem is with Camera driver.

Please uninstall the driver from Add/Remove Programmes and reinstall from media given by manufacture or download the latest driver from manufacture web site.

Hope it will work fine.

Driver webcam crystal eye


Crystal Eye is a webcam application included with some Acer laptops.
Laptops that have the Crystal Eye WebCam application installed also have a camera built in to the monitor.
Crystal Eye can adjust the camera's brightness, contrast and color intensity, and capture photos.
If you removed the Crystal Eye WebCam application from your Acer laptop on accident, you can download the software from the Acer website and reinstall the application to your PC.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Input "device" into the search box. Click "Device Manager."
Expand "Imaging Devices."
Double-click the Web camera to find the name of the manufacturer.
Go to Acer Support.
Select "Notebook" from the "Select Your Product" menu.
Select the notebook's product line, then select its product model.
Click "Confirm."
Click the "Applications" tab.
Select an operating system from the "Operating Systems" drop-down menu on the far right.
Scroll to "Camera." Download "WebCam Application."
Use the manufacturer information found in Device Manager to determine which vendor to download from.
Save the file to the desktop.
Double-click the file to run the setup for the Crystal Eye WebCam.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

Windows XP/Vista/7/8
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution
note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
this is a free driver solutions
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you
want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Not opening my webcam


Hi,

Good day to you. In regards to your issue usually Acer Laptop users are facing problem with the Webcam Driver while migrating to Windows 7. While other devices work with the Windows 7 inbuilt drivers, the Acer Crystal Eye Web cam device needs an explicit Driver.

You can install this one to make your crystall eye webcam to work. This version works well with windows 7

Click the link to download:
http://www.techrena.net/downloads/Acer_Camera_Suyin_v.5.2.5.3_Win7x86x64.zip

> After download this file, just extract it to your computer using Winzip.
> Then install the driver
> Then restart your pc to finalize the installation

After that your acer crystall eye webcam should work. Hope this work for you in resolving your issue. Have a great day.

Webcam


If you go to your start menu, look for a programme called 'acer crystal eye webcam' and that will bring up your webcam programme.
It is not in the folder 'Acer crystal eye webcam' though, just 'Crystal eye webcam'.

start \ all programmes \ Crystal Eye Webcam \ Crystal Eye Webcam.

If this proves fruitless, type webcam into the search option at the bottom of your start menu and look for the crystal eye webcam.

If these do not work, then look in your control panel to make sure it is installed. If not, contact company, they have a good customer service standard (from my experience)
