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.

    Click the camera icon to capture a photo. To turn off the Acer webcam, click the "X" button on the top of the window.

    Acer Aspire one "The Acer Crystal Eye webcam has not found!"


    Go to Device Manager and open up Universal Serial Bus controllers and you should see USB Unknown Device. Right click on the USB Unknown Device and click on Uninstall. Shut down the Aspire One PC. Unplug the power adapter to the PC. Remove the battery at the back of the PC. Wait 1 minute.

    Put back the battery. Plug the power adapter. Turn ON the Acer Aspire One pc. It should automatically detect the Acer Webcam and it will be listed in the Imaging Devices at the Device Manager. :) yay

    Acer Crystal Eye Webcam and MSN Messenger


    Hi,
    Make sure you are not running the Desktop Icon program first. The camera can only be used by one program at a time.
    Now login to Messenger, and click
    Tools > Audio and Video Setup, and click Next past the audio settings, and choose USB Video Device from the list. It should work after a couple of seconds. If that doesn't work, try the other device drivers from the list, waiting a couple of seconds each time, until you can see some output in the window. Then apply and you're ready to go.
    It's the same deal with Skype, except it's in
    Tools > Options > Audio Settings.

    Hope this helps

    Acer Crystal Eye Webcam and MSN Messenger


    I'm not sure if your problem is fixed yet or not, but I had this same problem when I updated to windows live 2009. But whenever I deleted it and got an older version of live it works just fine. So, I think it's msn and not the webcam..but i'm not positive about that. Mine just seemed to work after I got an older version.
