Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam & Yahoo MessengerI

My web cam won't work with yahoo messenger even though it came with both yahoo and the web cam already installed . It doesn't make sense. Is there any way to get them to work together? I didn't find the correct pc on the list. It's an Acer 5520-5912 notebook.

Is u're camera detected?

if no -> try check the cable between u're camera and mainboard, replugged it! (bring to service center if u still have the warranty)

if yes -> download the lastest driver from than reinstall it.

Acer aspire one webcam. HELP?

The Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam automatically integrates itself into whichever program you are using be it an aftermarket video control or Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Messenger. The only way I know how to bring it up MANUALLY is to go to the Control Panel or your Start menu (in Accessories) and bring up the Scanner & Camera Wizard. When you bring that up, click "Next" and it will start the camera and you will see yourself. When using a program like Windows Live Messenger (version 8.5 is the BEST!) you will have to tell the program what source to use for the camera, Your only choice is the Crystal Eye Web Cam unless you have installed a different cam that sits atop your screen, in which case, tell the program to use that one. You might try downloading a program called YAWCAM from the web and installing that. Just do a Google search for it. Give that a try because the Acer web cam doesn't do video with the limited controls in Scanner & Camera Wizard.

Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam

Look Here:

Look in the drop down list in Drivers and utilities for the ones with CCD in them.
3 different types of camera used in that model.
Bison, Chicony, Suyin.
If you don't know which is yours just try one after the other.

Acer cystal eye webcam

hi that would be simple if you find the folder in which the web cam icon is located right click on the icon scroll down to send another window should open up on the side then click on desktop(shortcut) this should put the icon as a short cut on the desk top.
the icon that you right click on must be the icon that acesses & activates the crystal eye web cam.

hope this solves your problem.
