You should be able to plug an additional webcam if that's what you are saying. In the program you are using, simply select the correct video source to use the other webcam.

If required you can disable the crystal eye webcam in the Windows device manager (control panel).

Want to disconnect the crystal eye webcam


Hi, having just fixed a non working Acer webcam on a laptop, I suggest trying the following to disable the inbuilt webcam...

Go to control panel, open system devices, go to imaging devices, find Acer webcam, open properties tab and then disable device using the disable button. Alternatively, uninstall the driver and the camera will not work. Best to disable should you ever need to use again.

Hope this helps, rgds, Dave

Not opening my webcam


Hi,

Good day to you. In regards to your issue usually Acer Laptop users are facing problem with the Webcam Driver while migrating to Windows 7. While other devices work with the Windows 7 inbuilt drivers, the Acer Crystal Eye Web cam device needs an explicit Driver.

You can install this one to make your crystall eye webcam to work. This version works well with windows 7

Click the link to download:
http://www.techrena.net/downloads/Acer_Camera_Suyin_v.5.2.5.3_Win7x86x64.zip

> After download this file, just extract it to your computer using Winzip.
> Then install the driver
> Then restart your pc to finalize the installation

After that your acer crystall eye webcam should work. Hope this work for you in resolving your issue. Have a great day.

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam


The first thing to check is if your webcam is working correctly. If you're running Windows XP, click on the "start" button, then click on "My Computer". Now double click on "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". It should now show a screen with video from the webcam (probably of your face in front of the computer).

Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Crystal Eye webcam


I had the same problem with the Extensa 5420-5687 as well, I went to the device manager and found my crystal eye webcam (there was a yellow exclaimation point on it) I tried to update the driver software by having it search automatically for the software, but it just said that it was up to date...that still didnt fix my problem. So i tried browsing my computer for the driver. I picked "let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer" I then clicked on "Acer crystal eye webcam" then i hit next, it then installed the updated driver. After that my webcam worked again!
