Re: need instuctions for using Acer Crystal Eye web cam
Like with most laptop web cams the supplier doesn't always install usable software. As long as it opens and you can see yourself the cam will work with any of the know messaging programs. To use it independently of the internet, go into the control panel and system and then hardware and find the manufacturer of the web cam device itself, ie logitec. Then go to that companies web page, and most have some free web cam software that you can download and use for creating video on the laptop.

Have you installed all the software that came with your webcam? if so then yahoo messender is one free program that allows you to interract online with your web cam the software should give you other programs that you can use to either make live vids or take still shots.. the way you use the webcam is entirely in your hands.. experiment with the programs that you installed with your webcam or goto acer site and ask them
The Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam automatically integrates itself into whichever program you are using be it an aftermarket video control or Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Messenger. The only way I know how to bring it up MANUALLY is to go to the Control Panel or your Start menu (in Accessories) and bring up the Scanner & Camera Wizard. When you bring that up, click "Next" and it will start the camera and you will see yourself. When using a program like Windows Live Messenger (version 8.5 is the BEST!) you will have to tell the program what source to use for the camera, Your only choice is the Crystal Eye Web Cam unless you have installed a different cam that sits atop your screen, in which case, tell the program to use that one. You might try downloading a program called YAWCAM from the web and installing that. Just do a Google search for it. Give that a try because the Acer web cam doesn't do video with the limited controls in Scanner & Camera Wizard.
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).
i think you cant use the built in cam from your acer to used for video conferencing using logitect account. but you can disable the built in cam of your acer and install logitect to your acer to continue loging in you logitec account.
