Hi there I've just had the same prob with my Acer Aspire 5535. It seems there are compatibility problems with the webcam and the most recent version of MSN. I've now downgraded to v8.1 and it works perfectly fine. I'm probably gonna have a go at using a slightly newer version and see how far I can get before I goes wrong again as v8.1 isn't the most attractive of versions :-)

Hi,

You need to make sure that the driver of your webcam is installed properly so that you can use it. You can download the webcam driver here.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have an Acer Extensa 5620Z. Last year, I did a clean install with Windows 7. All year long, the Crystal Eye webcam worked perfectly fine. Now it has stopped working all of a sudden! It is not recognized...


It is possible that the web cam has become defective.
Go to ACER's site and download new drivers and see if that helps. If it still doesn't work, then the webcam is defective and can only be replaced.

I have a laptop and the webcam does not work


1- make sure the webcam driver was install properly. Type devmgmt.msc at run. Look at the imaging device.
2- If its not install yet, just go to the site and download ur acer webcam then install.
3- If already configure, try uninstall then restart. Check whether usable or not. If cant, download new driver from the site , uninstall the old one and install with new one.
4- There got a lot of choice of webcam driver. better u download all and try one by one.
Or just let me know what kind of acer dat u use?
