If you uninstall Acer web cam you will not be able to use it. However, if you did it then you can reinstall it from the recovery partition, to do so Click Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> Restore Application & Drivers> Contents> Select Acer Crystal Eye and install it.
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.
You need to download the application for the webcam. Remember applications are not the same as drivers. And if you downloaded the drivers, that doesnt mean you're going to also have dowloaded the application.
did you downgrade from vista
the cam will need to be setup with yahoo and msn
if your having problems installing the cam then try
some vista programs will not work with xp and the same with some xp programs will not work with vista
so let me know if cam is downloaded and you just need setup on msn and yahoo
i have an acer aspire 5720, my crystal eye web-camdoesn't work either, well most of the time, it says a program stopped it from working, i have moved all photos into a new documents folder as suggested, but still doesn't want to work, any help would be much appreciated.
i think you cant use the built in cam from your acer to used for video conferencing using logitect account. but you can disable the built in cam of your acer and install logitect to your acer to continue loging in you logitec account.
