Acer Crystal Eye Webcam Issues

I have spent some time exploring other peoples questions on this and I'm having a slightly different problem. Naturally, the webcam has stopped working completely. This is the built in camera from factory. Notebook is well looked after. Control panel/cameras/ reveals no cameras. Went to acer, downloaded all of the webcam drivers and installed each separately and restarted- still same issue. 'camera not found'. In my programs there is a folder for Acer Crystal Eye Webcam but there's nothing there. To me it seems like the camera has completely disappeared. Some of the help files have stated to delete/uninstall webcam and reinstall, but doesnt appear in hardware folder, or allow me to add it as new hardware as if it cant be detected. Now I'm not a complete dummy on this stuff but I'm now stuck. My daughter lives overseas and I'd like to skype but cant. The camera worked fine but I rarely use it and discovered this yesterday. Brett PS: Adding: There are programs related to webcam device inside add/remove program list that appear to be correct and installed by manufacturer. Thanks for any help, kind of frustrating

SOURCE: ''Camera not Found!'' Error for Acer Crystal Eye Webcam.

If no devices for the webcam are showing in device manager, and you can't trigger it to be detected, the camera hardware may be dead. One good way to test this would be to back up all your important files to an external hard drive (or your d: partition-acerdata) and perform an acer factory restore by pressing alt+F10 at startup time. Alternately, you could use your discs that came with the laptop, or make a set using the e-recovery management console. The d: partition is not affected by a factory restore. This will tell you if the camera is dead. If it still won't respond after a factory restore, contact acer for warranty service. Acer will likely insist you do the system restore first though.

Hope this helps!

Hi there, My Crystal Eye Webcam stopped working. I have re-installed from the original on the HDD it tells me ok. Skype can't find it. In Device Manager it's not visible. I also tryed to start...


Try downloading and installing the newest drivers for the model of your computer.

If this doesn't fix it, make sure you are not using any programs like ManyCam or anything that would be using your webcam. You can only use the webcam in one program at a time.

Hi,i have an acer aspire 5315 vista ,my webcam and earphones r not working.i tried to down load it from manufacturer but i could not.i would be very grateful if somebody wud help me wat to do step by step...


Hello faizals25,

It seems as though there may be 2 different issues: #1.Webcam #2.Earphones. I'll offer a possible solution for each one of them:

------------------------
1).WEBCAM
If you don't have a crystal eye webcam shortcut on your desktop then do the following:
•Click Start (lower left-hand of screen)
•Select Run
•Copy and paste this in the Run window (include quotation marks):
"C:\Program Files\ACER Crystal Eye webcam\Acer Crystal Eye webcam.exe"
•Click ok
The Crystal Eye webcam will become activated
------------------------
2).EARPHONE
The audio output settings can be managed from the control panel as follows:
•Click Start (lower left-hand of screen)
•Select Control Panel
•Select Sounds
•Select the speaker and click properties. Check the properties settings and make sure the speaker is enabled and working ok
------------------------

Have a great day,

Ive heard about this problem several times... Most people said the solution was to remove all the photos from the webcam, and move them to a different folder, IE) "My Photos"
