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.
ok this problem is caused by the wrong drive installed for the Crystal Eye Web cam.
even thoguh the camera shows that it is installed, the application looks for a specific one for the model you have. Unfortunatly Acer used 3 models of the camera without telling you which you have and calls all of them "crystal eye web cam"
go to acer.com select their support section and download all driver and applications available for the camera. you will need to try then 1 at a time til you get the one that works for your system
If the blue light does not come on by the camera, then just the program is running and not the camera, it takes one program and one driver to run the Crystal Eye.
Here is the link to both files, make sure you have them both installed. Click on the link > click on Notebooks > click on Aspire > click on 5610 > download noth camera downloads > one is a driver, the other is the software.
