Cam should be in my computer to activate it you need to double click on left side will be take pictures.
you need to configure it for yahoo and then it will automatically show when you video chat instructions for setup

Go to Yahoo Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and
set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and in blue writing click
on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions
on the left window.

How to use webcam on acer aoi-301 labtop


Check this first: Certain Acer laptops come with a built-in Webcam called the "Acer Crystal Eye." This Webcam is located in the center of your lid just above your LCD screen. Those models that possess this integrated Webcam also have a program with the same name. This "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" program allows you to record video through your Webcam and save it on your hard drive.

Step 1 Click "Start," "All Programs," "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" and click the program shortcut of the same name. This opens up the Webcam where you can see yourself, but it hasn't started recording yet.
Step 2 Click the video camera icon, which is the one second from the left under the video display. This starts recording the video.
Step 3 Click the video camera icon again to stop recording and save your video. You can also delete the video by clicking the clip's thumbnail on the bottom panel and clicking the trashcan icon.
Step 4 Locate the video file on your hard drive in your "My Videos" folder, which can be found inside your "My Documents" folder.

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".

Cannot find the icon or whatever in order to use the crystal eye


Right click on an open space of your desktop. Select New>Shortcut.

When the Create Shortcut window comes up, click Browse.

Double-click "Computer".

Double-click "Acer (C:)" or your C: drive. It may not be named Acer.

Double-click "Program Files".

Double-click "Acer Crystal Eye webcam".

Click "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" next to the small icon. (NOTE: Do not select the one that just says "Crystal Eye". It is only an icon, not the program.)

Click OK.

Back at the Create Shortcut window, click Next.

Type in whatever name you want to give, or leave the default as is.

Click Finish.

Icon appears on desktop. Double-click the icon to begin the program.

Acer Aspire 8920G camera functionality


Vista does not include any way to test the camera. You may have QuickPlay in the Programs list - this will test the camera.
You can use MSN messenger and establish a video link or load Skype.
Try this
Willing WebCam Lite from www.willingsoftware.com if you want to test it.

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.
