    We recently purchased a Aspire 5920 and despite the crystal eye working first couple of days we have a similar problem saying that the crystal eye is open on another programme and cannot be used on msn - any assistance greatly appreciated

    Mine does that all the time. I just push my "Ctrl", "Alt" & "Del" all @ the same time & it opens up your "Windows Task Manager" click on the "Processes" (tab) & scroll down until you see "CameraAssistant...." click on that & then click on the "End Process" button @ the bottom of your task page. A warning will pop up saying it could result in a loss of data... it's fine. The Geek Squad taught me that trick!
    Good luck to you Halesowen

How do i use my web cam on msn on my aspire one netbook?


Here are the steps to use web cam on MSM:-
Log in to your account at the MSN Web site.
Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture.
Click the "Webcam" icon.
Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to.
Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin.
Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again.
Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer.

Show or Hide Your Webcam
Open MSN Messenger on your computer.
Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list.
Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse.
Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.
Good luck, do rate the solution if got help

How to work the acer crystal webcame


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,

I don't no how to set up my acer aspire 5535 crystal


Hi,

You need not to setup Eye camera. It by default setup from the manufacture. You just need to TURN it ON with supportable application.

For a sample test -> Turn on the Yahoo or MSN or QQ -> Select a Online budy and start sharing CAM.

I hope it will work. If it not working you need to confirm drivers for webcam from the Device Manager.


If any query please write at katwal.raman@gmail.com

My acer crystal webcam is not working properly


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 :-)

Defragment your system. If that doesn't work

http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acerdrivers/bin/drivers.html?CFID=877183&CFTOKEN=73607451

Use that site to download your drivers
Use www.hwinfo.com, download software to find the maker of your webcam.
Download as many drivers that match. If a driver does not fit your system your computer will recognize it and reject it.

First thing you need to install AOL messenger so you can enjoy chatting with your friends while you chat with them. In the AOL messenger you can start your cam. There should be an icon of the software that runs your camera on your desktop. Use that to take pictures and save on a specified file location then after that enjoy sending e-mails or chat with your friends with your cam. Let me know if you have further questions.
