Hello monzky and thanks for using fixya.com.

First off if you have upgraded to windows vista, it may be possible your webcam is not supported. The best bet would be to check acers website for updates for vista drivers for your laptop model. If you post your laptops model we would be more then happy to look them up for you.

Jei.

Built in crystel eye cam just stopped working i took it back to a system restorebecouce it keeped tell me the device was found in my pc


You need to re download the drivers for your crystal eye web cam. Go to this link: http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

When you get there, select "Notebook"...then select "Aspire". Then scroll down and select Aspire 5610. Then where you see "Operating System", select your operating system (ex: XP, Vista, or Windows 7). It will then show all the drivers for your operating system...scroll down until you see the camera driver software and then download and reinstall it. Hopefully this will help...good luck.

How to install external web cam to my loptop


If you have Vista or Windows 7, most web cams will auto install. Simply plug them in and reboot. Some even install right away - again if one of the operating systems, then go to start/devices and printers/ then double click on the new web cam icon to test. if older XP or other, then you will need the driver. You did not specify the make model so I cannot provide a link to the correct software. If new item, it should have a CD that will autoinstall on insert.

If installing for Skype or MSN - you will need to enable through their tools /Options menus. and test

Good luck!

I have an acer aspire 5735z laptop webcam


Dear Sir,

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.


good luck

Web cam not working


Since you have a NEW computer, I will assume you have Vista on it. Yahoo messenger does not support the use of a web cam with Vista.

Web cam problem


Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks
