    Simplemente no funciona. Acer aspire 5920. Cuando se configura el computador, el programa no la instala. Lo he intentado varias veces y es el mismo resultado,no funciona. No tiene sentido cambiar de computador con camara incluida, si a la fine uno queda con un equipo peor que antes.

I followed this pattern - Control Panel, System and Maintenence, System, Device Manager.

Once you get to this page you should see an alert symbol next to the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam, under the Imaging devices tab.

If you double click on the warning it should bring up another sub-window giving details of the webcam. Then click on the drvier tab at the top and click Update Driver. I clicked on automatically update and it worked straight away after that!

Hope this helps!

Dear gentlemen,

Please update the driver if necessary at Control Panel, System, Device Manager, Imaging Devices/Human Interface devices, Insert the CD driver click update at top menu level and browse for it. You can also check at the manufacturer's website for any updates. Since this problem occurs in different manner or complex due to other system faults, please scan viruses and spysweepers. Free AVG is good enough and demo version of Spysweeper is fine enough to check and guard for a month. Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

I get this message everytime i try to use the webcam with msn messenger: Kan ikke starte kameraenheten. Kontroller at kameraet ikke brukes av et annet program, og prøv deretter på nytt.

uhm, that was in norwegian, i'll try translating it as good as i can:
Can't launch the webcam. Please make sure the camera rn't being used by another program, then try again.

i have no idea what do do :(

Any suggestions?
pls feel free to send me an e-mail if u have any idea or hints of what might solve my problem :) runar.o.k@hotmail.com

Already solved. Just empty out pictures folder and the camera works fine. I use other products that don't interfere with the acer camera software.

Camera is the problem ....plz help


Try installing the WEBcam driver.
You can download WEBcam driver from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you the link to this WEB site because you did not provide details of the make and model of your laptop.

My built in web cam wont work on my Packard Bell EasyNote TE11HC


You probably need to re download the drivers for the webcam.
Go to Packard bell website and look for the model of your computer
and download the drivers.
Note: You don't need Norton it's a waste of money and not very protective.

If there are no error status codes under device manager, then either you have some OS corruption and need to reinstall the OS or the webcam is defective. I would be more inclined to say the latter.
Skype is a good test, since you've obviously done that its most likely bad.
You could test the os theory by downloading hiren boot cd, burn the image to disc and boot into the mini xp live part, install skype and driver under it and test the web cam.
If its under warrenty just have them replace the web cam, if not i could replace it at a reasonable price. Comment back for additional assistance.

Do you have a system installation disk given by your PC notebook manufacturer. If so, use it to re-stabilize any changes happened to your system configuration. In certain cases the notebook manufacturers provide you with 15 days and 30 days trial softwares to try and buy... but as you are talking about an inbuilt cam provided by the manufacturer of the laptop, there is no possibility of any trial drivers loaded. So I believe that the best option would be to do a factory reset using the system installation disk which came along with the PC.
