How do i turn on my built in webcam for the advent roma 2001 laptop


  • Select the "Camera Assistant Software" program located under the "Program Files" folder accessed by opening your computer "Start" menu.
  • Step 2View the configuration options available for your built in webcam and microphone. In order to use the webcam you will need to use a video chat service such as Yahoo Instant Messenger, AOL IM, or Google Video Chat.
  • Step 3Open your Instant Messaging (IM) program by double clicking the program icon on your computer desktop. If you do not have an instant messaging service, you can sign up for a service from Yahoo, AOL, or Google through the URLs included in the resource section of this article. For Yahoo and AOL, you can download and install IM software to use with your laptop webcam on your computer.
  • Step 4Sign in to your IM service. Then, select the "My Webcam" icon on the application menu to enable video chat in the service. When the webcam is enabled, others will be able to see and here you when conducting a video chat session on your computer.

    Make sure drivers are installed for both webcams, and then if that doesnt work try reinstalling the software on both computers.

    If that fails, then try using another video chat like skype.

    In im i cant invite to see my cam why


    Probably because you are in a different program to your contact
    Cross chatting does not support webcams
    If you are in Yahoo Messenger for example and your contact is in Yahoo Mail or Yahoo webmessenger or MSN the webcam feature is not available the option may be greyed out or missing.
    You both have to be in Yahoo Messenger or MSN

    Read this FAQ from ACER:
    How to use the built-in webcam? The integrated webcam can be used by third-party applications such as Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Skype etc. Use the webcam button in the messenger software and it will automatically turn on and start the webcam.
    Select models of Acer netbooks also ship with a program "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". This program will enable the webcam immediately after startup and can be used to take pictures and record video.

    For our Linux-based netbook, you can find the Instant Messenger program in the "Connect" section on the desktop . Additional software like Skype, are available through our special website for the Aspire One netbook. Within the "Fun" section of your Linux desktop, you will find a program called "Webcam" which can be used to test the built-in webcam.


    Look for "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" entry in the programs menu, then right click on the program icon and click on "Send to the desktop as a shortcut".
