Install the proper driver for your laptop from acer's online support & download centre, most likely the correct driver is the one called Acer Crystal Eye or something like that

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.

How to make video with crystal eye web cam


hello kma bay bay,

Look for a piece of software called "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" in your start menu program list, or in your program files folder. This is a simple photo and video capture program that comes with your laptop. It is very similar to Apple's "Photo Booth" program if your familiar with that.

To start recording a video click on the camcorder icon, to stop click on it again. To take a picture click on the camera icon. All of your saved photos and videos will be displayed in a scrolling menu along the bottom of the program window. To delete a file click on it to highlight and then click the trash can icon. To open a file in a video player or photo view double click it. If you don't have this software I've included a link to download it from cnet.com below.

Acer Aspire - Crystal Eye Webcam won't record video


Update the drivers. The Crystal Eye is not the best camera out there. I have had to update mine 7 times and only owned it for 3 months

Import video is only when you have recorded a video using the webcam in a particular format and not on the fly which is what you are trying to do.

Record what you want using another application and the webcam then import the video into movie maker to edit.

Alternatively, I think you need to to go the options screen and select the default audio device. Go to control pannels and see if its there and then select the webcam as the default device for MS applications.

good luck
