Acer Aspire V3-571 webcam

I cant get any software to recognize the webcam. I have downloaded all the recent drivers including those from the acer website, but every time I attempt to install them I'm told that there is no webcam. This also happens when I try and install the acer crystal view software. I initially had the software on my computer but when I opened it it told me there was no webcam and disappeared off my had drive! Has anyone had a simelar issue and if so how did they fix it?

Some newer cams are not compatible with Yahoo, check here to make sure yours is. If not (too new) then try a 3rd party software to run it through... I've used a free fun one called 'ManyCam' , if you run your laptop cam through that it should work on yahoo messenger.

Good luck!

For my Acer 5920, I use this - Press Windows Start Key - All Programs. Click on Acer Empowering Technology, which will open list. Choose Acer ERecovery Management. This will take you to a screen where you can select from various Restore options, including Reinstall applicatoins/drivers. Next screen is Contents or Manuals. Choosing Contents will take you to software & drivers, which can be reistalled from there.

try this it sometimes works. 1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe). START > RUN > (Type) REGEDIT (and hit ENTER) 2. Locate the UpperFilters and LowerFilters value under the following key in the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{6BDD1FC6-810F-11D0-BEC708002BE2092F} Write down the upper & lower filter valuse. Delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters value (it's safe, and if could be restored later on if you have written it down, so don't worry)

Go to Device Manager and open up Universal Serial Bus controllers and you should see USB Unknown Device. Right click on the USB Unknown Device and click on Uninstall. Shut down the Aspire One PC. Unplug the power adapter to the PC. Remove the battery at the back of the PC. Wait 1 minute.

Put back the battery. Plug the power adapter. Turn ON the Acer Aspire One pc. It should automatically detect the Acer Webcam and it will be listed in the Imaging Devices at the Device Manager. :) yay

I've got an acer crystal webcam in my computer.I wanna take pictures but cant seem to find it,i tried searching for it in the start menu but nothing.


Hi,

You may need to install the driver for the webcam. Download the driver from: LINK
After that, your laptop should recognize the webcam. You can use any webcam software already installed on your computer or you can download one from the internet.

Here is a link to a very basic but useful program that you can use with the webcam: SOFTWARE
Click the link, then download the program and install.

Hope this helps.

Hi selamat_8832,

I think that the most likely problem here is the driver/software of the webcam, which is the acer crystal eye webcam. You should just uninstall the software from Add/Remove Program (Windows XP) or Programs and Features (Windows Vista).

Then afterwards, reinstall the software/drivers using the disc that came with your Acer laptop, it should contain the all the drivers for the laptop including the webcam. Just pick the correct driver to install. Now if you don't have the CD or is missing you can goto this link: http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acer/bin/acer.html#app=2766&9e7c-selectedIndex=0&3386-selectedIndex=2&bca4-selectedIndex=1&bf37-selectedIndex=1&4f90-selectedIndex=1

When you open the page by default it should show the Drivers tab. Under the tab there are items you can choose from: Select Product Type, Select Product and Select Download. You first need to click on the "Select a Product Type" choose there Notebook. Then it will goto the next item which is "Select Product" choose there the model of your laptop which is an Aspire 4530. Then it will automatically goto the "Select Download" and it will show all the possible drivers you can download including the webcam drivers (acer crystal eye webcam) and they are labeled either for Windows XP or Windows Vista. So pick the one you need.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Webcam


http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdrivers/bin/drivers.html?CFID=877183&CFTOKEN=73607451

Use that site to download your drivers
Use www.hwinfo.com, download software to find the maker of your webcam.
Download as many drivers that match. If a driver does not fit your system your computer will recognize it and reject it.

There are so many questions on here its hard to get to all of them. Sorry you had to wait so long.
