Kindly let me know if you recently did this and saved nothing of much worth to your c drive after that. 1. Just go to add remove programs and uninstall any program for your web cam.
2. let the acer auto PnP search for the best driver on restart or else if you have CD then install it from the CD. If this does not works then follow the last resort.
just restart your pc and continue hitting F8 once you get the choices option select boot through last good known....

Driver webcam crystal eye


Crystal Eye is a webcam application included with some Acer laptops.
Laptops that have the Crystal Eye WebCam application installed also have a camera built in to the monitor.
Crystal Eye can adjust the camera's brightness, contrast and color intensity, and capture photos.
If you removed the Crystal Eye WebCam application from your Acer laptop on accident, you can download the software from the Acer website and reinstall the application to your PC.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Input "device" into the search box. Click "Device Manager."
Expand "Imaging Devices."
Double-click the Web camera to find the name of the manufacturer.
Go to Acer Support.
Select "Notebook" from the "Select Your Product" menu.
Select the notebook's product line, then select its product model.
Click "Confirm."
Click the "Applications" tab.
Select an operating system from the "Operating Systems" drop-down menu on the far right.
Scroll to "Camera." Download "WebCam Application."
Use the manufacturer information found in Device Manager to determine which vendor to download from.
Save the file to the desktop.
Double-click the file to run the setup for the Crystal Eye WebCam.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html
Windows XP/Vista/7/8
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution
note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
this is a free driver solutions
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you
want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Acer AoA150 freezes and won't do anything. I've reinstalled Windows and the same thing happens. What should I do?


I had a similar problem and here is what i did: 1) Start
2) My Computer
3) View System Information
OR 1) + 2) + 3) = Fn + F2
4) Hardware
5) Device Manager
6) Expand: 'Imaging Devices'
7) Right Click: 'Acer Crystal Eye webcam' Select: 'Update Driver'
8) Select: 'No, not this time'
9) Select: 'Install from specific location'
10) Select: 'Don't search, I will choose the driver to install'
11) Select: 'USB Composite Device'
12) Restart the computer (you should be prompted to restart)

NOTE:
After doing this procedure:
Start > My Computer will show 'USB Video Device' under 'Scanners and Cameras'
Expanding 'Imaging Devices' (step# 6) will show 'USB Video Device'

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam will now appear under 'Universal Serial Bus controllers' (the list in 'Device Manager' step# 5)
If you wish to re-enable the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam then follow the procedure from Step 7)

Further Note:
I got my BIOS updated to Version 0.3309 (Acer did it) in the hope that it would fix this StandBy problem but the BIOS update did not fix it.
I then changed the WebCam settings which fixed it.
But, I don't know if it is necessary to have this BIOS update done as well.
Someone else can probably tell you how to flash/update the BIOS yourself, I found it too scary and did not have the proper 'ingredients' anyway wink.gif

When the Create Shortcut window comes up, click Browse.

Double-click "Computer".

Double-click "Program Files".

Click "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" next to the small icon. (NOTE: Do not select the one that just says "Crystal Eye". It is only an icon, not the program.)

Click Finish.

Icon appears on desktop. Double-click the icon to begin the program.
