Follow these steps: Solution
This applies only to those systems with a built-in camera, the Acer Orbicam.

If the Acer Orbicam is missing or not installed, please follow the procedure below to reinstall the application.

Close all open applications on your computer and make sure your power cord is plugged into the back of the notebook.

  1. Press ‘Alt + F10' to start eRecovery Management.
  2. Enter default password of 6 zero's. Example: 000000
    (Note: if this default password does not work, then a different password has taken its place. Acer is not responsible for any forgotten or misplaced passwords.)
  3. Select ‘Recovery Actions' and click ‘Next'
  4. Select ‘Reinstall Applications/drivers' and click ‘Next'
  5. On the left hand side of the newly opened window select the following: Windows XP
    ? Driver
    ?Camera
  6. On the right side of the same window, click ‘Install Camera Driver Now'
  7. The unit will reboot after the installation is complete.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Look for the webcam software that came with the computer.
There will be a program package that will allow you to use
your webcam. Click the start button and look at your programs
to try and find it..

Have a acer aspire 5516 webcam wont work even after download driver


Most web cams need more than just a driver to operate, try downloading CyberLinks Youcam program. It is shareware but on eof the best programs out there. There may even be a link for the program at Acer's support page for your model laptop camera.

I have a acer and it does not have the botton on it how do u turn on the webcam


The built-in webcam of most laptops runs via a program that's already installed onto your laptop. Check the programs section and look for the Acer utilites/programs section. Chances are it will have the webcam's utility program there.

As an alternative, check Acer's website for support on your model.

simpliest thing would be to go to acer's website, click on support and then drivers downloads and download the webcam drivers and softwar for your webcam..install them and try to run the crystal eye software again...sounds like the program isnt actually there but the drivers are.

When you installed the cam an OEM program was loaded at least for access to settings. Changing your laptop does nothing to prevent that program. My Philips webcam has a little program called VLounge that enables me to turn it on or off. If that program, which may only be considered a 'process' by Windows prevents me from using the webcam with Microsoft, Adobe or Cyberlink video programs. If you really can't find anything else running then uninstall the webcam and pay attention to what is being installed when you reinstall it.
