Go to device manager, and check is it installed.
if it is, you can download a freeware program YAWCAM.
If it isn't go to manufacturers web site, and there you can download the drivers for your camera

1. Please check in the Device Manager if the Camera is listed next to Imaging Device.

Press the Windows Logo+R key, it will open the RUN command window. In RUN command window type 'devmgmt.msc' and press the Enter key to open the Device Manager.

2. If the Camera is not listed in the Device Manager window, then reset the BIOS to default values and then try installing the Camera Driver or Camera Software.

NOTE: Disconnect all the external peripherals connected to the Computer except AC Adapter, then start the Computer and press the F2 or DEL key as soon as the Computer starts and the ACER logo appears to access the BIOS Setup screen.

Then, on the BIOS Setup screen, press the F9 key followed by the Enter key to reset the BIOS to default values and then press the F10 key to Save and Exit from the BIOS screen.

IMP: The Basic Input/Output System(BIOS) is a set of instructions stored on a ROM chip which handles all input-output functions. The BIOS communicates between the Operating System and the Computer's Hardware. Resetting the BIOS will reset the Hardware configuration to setup default values and data in the Computer will not be lost.

3. If the Camera is not listed in the "Device Manager" window even after resetting the BIOS to default values and re-installing the Camera Drivers and Software, then the Computer requires service to resolve the issue.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

Try to locate the camera driver and do a update also might be a fix download for the Crystal Eye Cam through Acer Or another download site. Another idea would be to get a driver Program which checks all your drivers on the main items like keyboard, web cam , mouse, monitor, graphics the one i use is DriverDetective works great!

Cervical Cushion- Pillows for Neck Pain Are you a very sedentary person? Do you have a classic office job and are 8 hours or more sitting in front of a computer? Then you most likely suffer from cervical pain. Cervical pain means having severe pain in the neck area because of an incorrect position of our cervix for quite some time. The cervical block or its numbness is due to the unnatural compression of the vertebrae. In this guide you will find all information about cervical pain, how to prevent them and how to cure them, but above all you will learn how to choose your cervical cushion that will help you lessen the pain or make it disappear completely. In the following table you will find some models of cervical pillows that can be found on the market, along with some of the major features that distinguish them. How to Choose a Cervical Cushion Since on the market you can find a great multitude of cervical pillow models, choose the most suitable one and certainly not a small business. First of all, choosing the most appropriate one is to understand what pathology you are suffering from. Although we often call it neck pain, cervical is not always the same in all cases. In this regard, it is understood that not everyone can use the same cushion. There are cases where the patient needs a more flexible pillow, others where there is a need for stiffer material, so before buying your new cervical cushion it would be interesting to consult your trusted physician, who can visit you and decide for you what is best suited to your pathology. Another factor could concern the price, but being in the medical field I recommend closing an eye on this item, ten euros more or less are nothing when it comes to health. Moreover, the price is directly proportional to the quality of the material used and of course there are materials that cost more than others. So as you see there are several factors to consider. Take care of all the advice you'll find on these pages and you too will be able to make the right choice. What is cervical pain and remedies? The area of ??the cervical vertebrae is that portion of our body that accuses so-called cervical pain when our neck or our head is in an incorrect position for several hours. This area is very important for our health and our well-being. In practice it connects our body and especially the spine to the head, with all the nerve endings that pass right in this particular area and very sensitive. When this area is subjected to a continuous stress, we do not only pain neck pain, but we also compromise the proper functioning of the head movement. Very often the pain becomes so strong that besides affecting the neck, it moves to the upper shoulders and joints, causing the famous head turns and also nausea. In the most severe cases a capatina is recommended by your doctor. Among the various factors that can trigger these severe pains are incorrect posture or an improper pillow. At the origin of this evil, however, there are also muscle contractions, trauma and stress. For this reason, the cervical pillow was born, which relieves the pain and allows the neck to be in the correct position. Structure, shape and material are designed to fit perfectly to the shape of the neck, sustaining it and giving it relief.
