Acer 7520-5115 - geeks installed xp for me and now have no webcam

Hated vista so had geeks install xp - figured that was the safe thing to do though I'm pretty fair with computer details. There's been no webcam since. Can't find anything related in control panel, add/remove programs or drivers. is skype anyway related? Not even certain what to look for.

TIA, Jean

P.S. It wouldn't let me enter a 7520

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 towww.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com"(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 I have Acer Aspire 5610Z. I change my OS from Vista to XP Pro. Now my webcam doesn't seems working through yahoo messenger. Please suggest.


If you have had the webcam working ok with VISTA and now that you have installed XP, it is not working.
You will need to visit your device manager and look under imaging devices. ( if you can see the webcam or camera, you just need to load software to run your webcam.)
If you have any flags under imaging, remove them and also look for unknown devices, if you have anything under unknown devices, remove that.
Afterward, you should go to the ACER website and download the webcam drivers for windows xp. And install it.
After all is completed, you can go to cyberlinks web site and download ucam.
Hope this helps you.

Crystal eye webcam for acer aspire 6920G says camera not found


hey, I had the same problem, I've got an Acer Aspire 6920 and I swapped out Vista that was on it for Windows XP

I went to the link you posted but it just goes to acer.com
so I figured I'd try something

if you go to acer aspire 6920 drivers, you can only pick Vista and Windows 7, and not Windows XP

instead, pick 6530 drivers (older acer) and pick the Bison driver:

Install it (with or without installing the previous Crystal eye, doesn't matter, and it will work properly

Seems like your VISTA upgrade didn't sucessfully upgrade itself from XP to VISTA. Seems like M$ update program detects your OS as XP and tries to install the SP3 for XP. VISTA only has SP1 released. Its currently stuck in a loop that it doesn't know what to do. Restart your laptop into safe mode by pressing F8 before the VISTA loading page comes up and go to Safe mode and backup your data and use the ACER RESTORE CD OR ACER RESTORE METHOD to help you reload your system back to factory defaults then upgrade back to vista without install any updates or connecting it to the internet.

This is my best solution to get you out of this weird and unusual situation.

You need to download the drivers for your webcam for windows Vista. Go here and choose your computer. In the right box, choose Acer Orbicam (logitech). That is the vista driver. Download and install it. There you go :c)

Switch from Windows vista to Windows XP


If the laptop came with Windows Vista Home you can't really uninstall it. You will need to wipe out everything on the computer and use a Windows XP disk to load that on your computer.

Equipment needed -
1. Valid Copy of Windows XP
2. USB Floppy Drive w/ Disk
3. Windows XP Drivers

***Also be aware if you do this you will lose any of the programs that came with your computer if you wipe it out. I HIGHLY recommend making your Vista recovery CDs before attempting to install another OS. (You can do this from the Acer manager)

Note you may also need access to a USB Floppy drive and a floppy disk with the SATA drivers for your motherboard on it. ( If it has an Intel processor you can probably get it from intel.com, otherwise you'll have to track down the manufacturer of the motherboard)

I would also download all the Windows XP files from acer ( here ) as it will make you life easier later.

Now you'll need to insert the Windows XP disk and turn on the computer. It may ask you to press a key to boot from CD, go ahead and press a key if it asks this.

It will now start to install windows XP. During the first few seconds there will be a message that says "Press F6 to install 3rd party drivers" --- Go ahead and continue with the install. If you get to a screen that says there is no hard drive installed in the computer you'll need to reboot it and press F6 at this screen. Please have the floppy drive plugged into the computer but no floppy disk in it while the computer is rebooting. After you press F6 it is ok to insert the disk into the drive. It will continue to load for a few minutes and then give you the option to install the drivers you need for the computer to see your SATA hard drive.

After that mess it will ask you where you want to install windows too, and you'll want to have it do a quick format in NTFS. Screens and extra info can be found here.

When windows is done installing you'll want to pop the CD in with the drivers you've downloaded and install everything to get it back into working shape.

This is a fairly long and complicated process. If you have trouble you can pop in your recovery disks, reboot the computer and it will set the computer back to the way it came from the factory.
