In Control Panel --> System, in Device Manager, do you see your webcam listed there? If so, does Windows say if it's working normally?

If you see a webcam there but it isn't working, try uninstalling it in Device Manager, then rebooting and letting the Aspire find it and reinstall the drivers. That might square you away.

If not, go here...

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&areaid=2&formid=3394#results

and you can download drivers for your webcam from the Acer site. Be aware there are two webcams listed there, so download the right one. Post back how it goes.

Hello my webcam will not work on my acer aspire one netbook after upgrading from vista to windows 7 can you help please.


Hello what model is your acer, you just pointed out it was an acer aspire one net book theres different models, however your best bet is when you do find out what model your acer aspire one is, go to google type in your model number then the webcam driver and the operating system which is windows 7, for example: acer aspire one netbook zg5 windows 7 webcam driver.
If your stuck just add what model number your acer aspire one net book is and i will be happy to help you out.

Ok i have had my acer aspire 5315-2326 for a year


try downloading the compatible acer aspire webcam software for your laptop. My laptop is also acer. It is aspire 4730z and it works perfectly fine. I think the software you are using is not compatible with your laptop.

Also most aspire models have lesser durability webcams. It gets really annoying when webcams of aspire won't work. I completely understand your situation.

Just follow my instruction and it will work perfectly fine.

Inbuilt webcam is not working


Hey,

I see there are multiple drivers available for a webcam in this model
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4710.html

Try all 3 of them, one at a time, one of them should work.

Let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks,

Webcam


If you go to your start menu, look for a programme called 'acer crystal eye webcam' and that will bring up your webcam programme.
It is not in the folder 'Acer crystal eye webcam' though, just 'Crystal eye webcam'.

start \ all programmes \ Crystal Eye Webcam \ Crystal Eye Webcam.

If this proves fruitless, type webcam into the search option at the bottom of your start menu and look for the crystal eye webcam.

If these do not work, then look in your control panel to make sure it is installed. If not, contact company, they have a good customer service standard (from my experience)

Lost webcam driver


you can download the driver (webcam) from www.acerpanam.com

FYI, if you can't find the driver under AS 3680, try AS 5570 or AS 5570z
