Basically i cant seem to find my built in webcam software on my laptop?


I suggest downloading Yawcam instead of the the software it comes with. On Windows Machines search webcam in windows explorer for the default. Another thing you could is just use online software.

Acer 5520 appcrash crystaleye webcam


Try this free software: http://www.yawcam.com/

It may or may not work, the FAQ says: "Q: Which webcams/video devices does Yawcam support? A: Yawcam version 0.3.0 and above works with all DirectX compatible webcams and video capture devices. This means almost all modern usb webcams and TV-cards."

So it may or may not work, worth a shot if you are having webcam issues! Hope this helps! :)

There is a utility bar that you can install that lets you change the default application folder:

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
