Instructions1 Take pictures independent of communications software on the Windows version of the netbook by using the webcam without connecting to networking software. Click the "Windows Start" menu and click "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" in the Programs list. The webcam application should open and the camera should produce an initial warmup image.

1. Check if Imaging Devices is listed in device manager. 2. Uninstall and reinstall the webcam companion software.
Use the Arcsoft Webcam Companion Software to use the camera to capture videos and pics. Click on start and type Webcam Companion in the search bar and press the enter key. This will open the webcam companion software, then click on the capture option to use the camera. If you want to use the camera with any messaging software such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger etc, it is required to close the Webcam Companion Software or any other web messenger software. The camera can be used with a single application at one time.
I see that you are having issue with using the camera on your Lenovo with other programs such as Skyp or Yahoo Messenger and so on...
On your Lenovo the camera works with easy capture, that is a good sign saying that your camera works but how to make it work on other applications you will need to get in the applications settings and select the Lenovo Camera as a default device for that specific application that you are using to utilize the camera.
all the applications you mentioned earlier has thier own settings page and this is where you can set each to make the Lenovo Camera the default deivce for it to work on your applications.
I hope that this will help you with your Camera concern.
If you start any application which uses webcam, it should be activated automatically. For example, use your yahoo messenger / yahoo messenger / the camera application that came along with the computer. First time you have to choose the camera / imaging device, once done from the next time onwards the application will directly open the camera.
You can use your web cam on many different applications. To test it out and take some pictures you can go to "My Computer"
and then find something like camera, web cam, etc. You can also use in
Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AIM, etc. Hope you have fun.
Acer Aspire Model generally comes with a bison web cam driver.
To use the web cam search for an application that installed in program files.In windows Xp web cam can be used by double clicking camera icon present in my computer. If you are using windows vista or other operating system you need an camera application software,to use it. Without application software you can use your web camera only in messengers,for example yahoo messenger. If u had an yahoo messenger login and click on view my web cam,now you can see your face in your laptop.So first thing is search for an application software installed on your laptop.
Vista does not have a stand-alone feature for Compaq Presario c700 webcam. You need to have another application to use the webcam. Fortunately, I found an application, YouCam, that allows you to take snapshots (and even videos) using the built-in webcam of the laptop.
