Acer 1711 SCi web cam driver issue

You might have a virus or infection that is blocking the installation.

Your Virus Protection might be blocking the installation, try turning it off.

Try installing it in Safe Mode With Networking.

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go and in the search box type: ""(without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When thesite opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says FindSoftware. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the whitesearch area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your resultslook for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it andinstall it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs itwould like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additionswhatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use,and you will always know where your webcam software is.

Hi, does anyone happen to know why Acer Aspire FO would be shutting down (I assume from overheating because it is quite hot when it happens), sometimes even when there are just a couple of simple...

First try taking off the bottom access panels, and make sure there isn't a large amount of dust/hair that could be preventing it from cooling properly. If everything's clean, you should call Acer ASAP to use your warranty before it expires, as it is probably a hardware problem that isn't user fixable.

Acer aspire 5630 laptop keeps shutting down

It sounds like someone has suggested that overheating may have caused the random shutdowns (which is quite plausible). There are a few tools that can diagnose what is happening:
  • Temperature: I use SpeedFan ( to discover the temperature of my cpu. My Acer 5630 is usually doing 50 to 60 degrees. Anything higher than that could cause the random shutdowns (I've seen it happen on other laptops). If you download this program, don't muck around with the settings (as it would advise you not to anyway), just look at the temperature readings (eg. core 1 core 2)
  • I keep a cpu usage meter on my sidebar ( It keeps an eye on the CPU usage so if i see it say 100% cpu usage then I suspect some software is inappropriately consuming resources.
Treatment of overheating would be to find the offending software and manage it or remove it. If it is not software at fault, then it may be that there is too much dust covering the ventilation (Your acer may be old and you may hear your fan increasing speed and the performance struggle sometimes). I opened up my one and found dust build up from the radiator all the way to the fan! (it was like around 1cm thick in some places, i wish i took a picture)
Another reason for random shutdowns is the integrity of the power switch or the lid sensor. My computer got rained on once and randomly shut down. It took a while of cleaning it with Circuit board cleaner from Repco (I had to open the panel that covered the power button and spray it). It got better everytime I cleaned it and now it reliably stays on (actually it randomly turns on now haha)

Melted the side of the casing

First thing to do is check out these ACER recall from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Here's a link to that:
Remember all laptops need to used in a well ventilated area; not on a blanket or a bed...any soft surface that would block its ventilation.

For safety's sake I recommend calling ACER customer service too.
I hope this helps!
