If there are not Vista specific drivers from manufacturer, do not expect it to function. Older systems are not being supported in many cases. Go to manuf web site and look for latest drivers for Vista. MS may generically support but don't count on it.

    How can I get my webcam working on HP laptop

    if you have driver no problem IF not go webside HP download web cam driver >model no

    1. Downloaded the file.
    2. Unzipped it to a folder on my desktop.
    3. Ran the "Setup.exe" file in the folder that got unzipped.
    4. Went through the installer until it got to the end and then let it restart my computer.
    5. Waited for my computer to restart.
    6. It popped up something saying it was installing the drivers for my webcam. Waited until it was done.
    7. Opened the Control Panel.
    8. Opened the Device Manager.
    9. Find my webcam under "Imaging Devices". I noticed it was listed as "HP Pavilion Webcam" despite having just installed the Acer drivers.
    10. Right-clicked on my webcam and chose "Update Driver Software..."
    11. Chose "Browse my computer for driver software"
    12. Chose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
    13. Unchecked the "Show compatible hardware" checkbox.
    14. Scrolled down to the Chicony manufacturer.
    15. Chose the "Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
    16. Told it to install anyway when it asked me a question about installing that driver.
    17. Waited for the driver to be installed.
    18. Noted that my webcam was now listed as an Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Device Manager.

    And that was it. It appears to work totally fine now! Again, I have my fingers crossed that it won't suddenly break again, but so far so good.

    Forgot to note: This is on a DV6000T running Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium.

    Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

    My Acer laptop has a built in Crystal Eye webcame and I can't get the stupid thing to do anything but take pictures! I want to be able to make a video.

    Is the program for webcam completely insalled, please check out for that.

    Since the option for capturing photos occur after the program installation. Check out all the menus firmly, if any one you left.

    Let me know if you face any difficulty I will assist you further.
