Acer Crystal Eye Webcam

How in the world do I use the webcam on my new Acer Aspire 7720 laptop? There is nothing in the manual. I'll be honest I'm not too smart when it comes to computers. I need step by step directions! I have Acer Crystal Eye Webcam and Acer Arcade Deluxe on my desktop, but am not sure what to do with them. I also have Windows Live Messenger, but I'm wondering if I should download AIM instead. Please help!!!

    I've got a 5920-6914 with a Crystal Eye webcam. It displays images on the laptop screen, but will not broadcast over IM. The VCM program refuses to recognize it. I e-mailed the problem to Acer tech support. They said it was not a hardware problem. I called, they said it was an IM software problem. I deleted Windows Live Mssgr, reloaded it - same problem. I'm down to watching myself on the screen and about to give up.

If you wnt to record you have to click the start botton and click all programs,then you look for windows movie maker and then it should say capture video from your webcam or something like that.

Your questions are less about an issue and more about just how to use the machine. persavere and keep trying different things. Eventually good things will happen. Its how we all had to learn. As for accessing the camera go to start and search the word cam. vistas usually pretty good and will find it for you

The first thing to check is if your webcam is working correctly. If you're running Windows XP, click on the "start" button, then click on "My Computer". Now double click on "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". It should now show a screen with video from the webcam (probably of your face in front of the computer).

If you go to your start menu, look for a programme called 'acer crystal eye webcam' and that will bring up your webcam programme.
It is not in the folder 'Acer crystal eye webcam' though, just 'Crystal eye webcam'.

start \ all programmes \ Crystal Eye Webcam \ Crystal Eye Webcam.

If this proves fruitless, type webcam into the search option at the bottom of your start menu and look for the crystal eye webcam.

If these do not work, then look in your control panel to make sure it is installed. If not, contact company, they have a good customer service standard (from my experience)

Acer crystal eye webcam

After weeks of trying to install my Acer Crystal Eye Camera on an Acer Aspire 6920 with a fresh vista install, I have finally solved this problem.

The error I was getting when trying to install the drivers:

"Could not install device. The required section was not found in the INF."

The problem is a missing registry key for Imaging Devices.
Here's how to fix it:

1. Start Menu > regedit.exe
3. Expand SYSTEM
4. Expand CurrentControlSet
5. Expand Control
6. Expand Class (and keep it highlighted/selected) 7. Edit > New > Key
8. Rename the key to: {6BDD1FC6-810F-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F}
9. Open the key, in the right hand side double click (Default)
10. Rename the Value Data to: Imaging Devices 11. Reinstall device drivers and you're done!
