The webcam does not come with the software for operating the camera. You will need another program like Windows live messenger or Skype.

I can not get the web cam to work


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. Use the buttons on the control panel to adjust image size or take photos.
2 Use the Instant Messenger program on the Acer Linux-based laptop or netbook to work the webcam. The Acer Instant Messenger program is available in the Connect folder on the Acer laptop's desktop screen.
3 To send and receive live video and pictures using your webcam on an Acer laptop, work the webcam through individual communications software, including Skype, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, or Google Video Chat. Open your selected communications software program and click the webcam button to work your webcam.

How do you set up the web cam on a acer laptop


  1. Plug your webcam into your laptop's USB port. All modern webcams use the USB port, which is generally located on the left or right side of your laptop.
  2. Install the CD that came with your webcam. All webcams come with a CD with drivers that allow the computer to read the data from the webcam. The CD may also come with a chat program which will allow you to communicate with online contacts who use a similar webcam.
  3. Mount the webcam on top of your laptop. Most webcams will have special plastic clamps that will attach to the top of your computer without hassle. However, since Laptops are often moved around, be careful not to use any adhesive docking mounts, as these are non-removable and may not allow your laptop to fit into specialty cases.
  4. Download and install a video chat service. There are several free video chat services, including Windows Live Messenger and Skype. See the resources section to links to these video chat programs.
  5. Test your webcam. Open your selected program and go to the webcam section. Try contacting someone you know on the service. You should see both yourself and the other person in separate windows. If your feed is shaky or flickers, you may need to reconnect the USB cable. If you do not see the picture at all, try re-installing the drivers on the CD that came with the webcam. You also may want to try the different troubleshooting steps outlined in the owner's manual.
INFO
In order to communicate with people online, your laptop will need to be connected to broadband Internet speeds, as dial-up does not have the necessary bandwidth for Internet video chat.
