This is a solution/clarification request. I have one of those Acer Aspire One Netbooks; but I'm assuming we've both got the same camera.

Alright, when you go to my computer, do you see the camera listed near the bottom? If so, double click it. If you see a video of yourself, then the camera is not at fault; it's MSN. If you don't see a video of you (or if it doesn't show the camera in MY COMPUTER) then it's possible your drivers are messed up. Get 'em from here:

Alright; with that said, maybe you don't know how to use the webcam (no offense). In MSN, you have to go to the tools and tell it to "invite to view webcam" or something along the lines of that. Or click on the camera icon. Good luck! Be sure to rate me if this solution works. Thanks.

How to use the acer crystal web cam on extensa 5620


You can use your web cam on many different applications. To test it out and take some pictures you can go to "My Computer" and then find something like camera, web cam, etc. You can also use in Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AIM, etc. Hope you have fun.

Good luck,

Acer aspire one webcam. HELP?


The Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam automatically integrates itself into whichever program you are using be it an aftermarket video control or Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Messenger. The only way I know how to bring it up MANUALLY is to go to the Control Panel or your Start menu (in Accessories) and bring up the Scanner & Camera Wizard. When you bring that up, click "Next" and it will start the camera and you will see yourself. When using a program like Windows Live Messenger (version 8.5 is the BEST!) you will have to tell the program what source to use for the camera, Your only choice is the Crystal Eye Web Cam unless you have installed a different cam that sits atop your screen, in which case, tell the program to use that one. You might try downloading a program called YAWCAM from the web and installing that. Just do a Google search for it. Give that a try because the Acer web cam doesn't do video with the limited controls in Scanner & Camera Wizard.

Cristal eye not supporting yahoo messenger vedio chatting


This usually happens when the cam is still being used by another application. Go to Task Manager and see if windows live messenger is still running. If so close it in Task Manager then try to run the cam again in yahoo messenger.

Acer cystal eye webcam


hi that would be simple if you find the folder in which the web cam icon is located right click on the icon scroll down to send another window should open up on the side then click on desktop(shortcut) this should put the icon as a short cut on the desk top.
NB:
the icon that you right click on must be the icon that acesses & activates the crystal eye web cam.

hope this solves your problem.
