Re: Acer Aspire web came (crystal eye)

You need to make sure the computer has it installed and visible in your device manager. To get here, click start hover the pointer over 
My Computer and right click and choose "manage " from the 
menu. Then a window will appear, in the left pane choose device
 manager. Find your webcam under its type (imaging devices) and it will be named by Brand and Model so make sure you know that. if it is there and installed. use windows live messenger, it is very self explanitory

Device manager is used to view all installed devices. Any problems with hardware in this tree will be expanded and the hardware icon will have a red or yellow icon requesting your attention. Right click the device and choose properties to get a brief description of the problem and "error code" post this code in the question if you have this problem.

How to use my webcam on our new Acer 5315

Hey jibbra,
In order for you to utilize the web cam you first have to download a piece of software that supports the web cam. And if want want to use your web cam for pics be sure the download will support that as well. Some downloads support chat and web cam only and some do both.
Check out downloads by Bison, Message Yahoo and more... Just Google what you want and see what it comes up with. I'm sure there are others out there that can help you alot better than I can, but theres a start. Good luck... BTY most of these down loads are nearly free if not 100% free

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.

First thing you need to install AOL messenger so you can enjoy chatting with your friends while you chat with them. In the AOL messenger you can start your cam. There should be an icon of the software that runs your camera on your desktop. Use that to take pictures and save on a specified file location then after that enjoy sending e-mails or chat with your friends with your cam. Let me know if you have further questions.

i think you cant use the built in cam from your acer to used for video conferencing using logitect account. but you can disable the built in cam of your acer and install logitect to your acer to continue loging in you logitec account.
