    I have a similar problem with my Acer Aspire 3100 webcam, I've tried every available driver for this series but still no luck. I recently had to format my laptop.. before the camera was working fine. Now all I get is a gray or white box whenever I click on the "acer orbicam" in my computer! I badly need help. Here are the drivers and versions I have tried: Acer Orbicam Logitech, bison_v5.0.0.8c, AcerOrbiCam(Bison)_v1.0.0.19, Bison_CCD_5_0_0_10f WEBCAM, AcerOrbiCam_v1.0.11(suyin). And everytime I had to unistall and reinstall and restart my computer, but nothing is working..! I'm running on XP SP2 by the way. Thanks Alot!

Installed win 7 in my acer 7520 lap top...but now crystal eye web cam has no drivers ..ware do i get drivers?

Acer 7250 does not have drivers support for windows 7.
You might be able to installed Windows 7 but Acer doesn't guarantee the stabilty for your laptop.

I'm giving you the link of the lastest webcam driver for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 below.Check it might work as 90% of the driver meant for vista work fine with Windows 7 as they were develop using the same platform.
