When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default app will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel.
One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messager or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat.. If this doesnt work you may not have the right drivers. Go to the acer website or a 3rd party driver site like www.driveragent.com and update the drivers! Also if running on batt it may be disabled to save power.. right click on my computer click properties and device manager and make sure it is on the list of hardware, or newer verisons of windows control panel > system > Hardware

I have this laptop, there is 3 specs in this model. For some reason the high spec one does not have a web cam or bluetooth. It has the space on the front for one, but the internal camera is removed.

I dont even bother with the drivers and the webcam still works. Windows 7 auto detects it. You can use it with msn messenger, yahoo, manycam, etc. I like this laptop, no driver nonsense every time i reinstall.

My Acer Aspire 5732Z's Crystal Eye webcam wont work online or on Skype, Messenger, etc. When I was cleaning out my laptop, (deleting unwanted programs) I may have deleted something that had to do with...


You need to reinstall your Web cam's drivers.
If you have the drivers on a cd, reinstall them,
if you dont have them, visit Acer's website, www.acer.com and go to the "Drivers and Support" page, enter your laptop model and the operating system you are using, then download the web cam drivers (Acer Crystal Eye) and install.
That should solve your problem.

Thank you for using Fixya,

Hi my acer aspire 5732z laptop crystal eye web cam is not working so what is the best solution


Hi santosh_nish,


The best solution is to reinstall the drivers of your webcam , you can do this by using the motherboard cd which comes along with your laptop.

If the drivers are reinstalled , hopefully the web scam would work.

hope this helps ...:)

Hello,my brother repormatted my laptop acer aspire 5732z,and also deleted the recovery.how can i take the recover of this model


Once you delete the recovery partition there isn't any way to get it back. Depending on the model they might have sent you a recovery disk - that should reset the system.

Does the acer 5517 have a built in mic


Acer 5732z has a webcam but there is no built-in mic, you need to use the external mic connector (pink/red).
