Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
Hello! I installed windows 7 on my laptop which is a Acer one and originally used windows vista, once the windows 7 was installed i was no longer allowed to go on my acer crystal eye webcam, do i need to re-install it or unistall windows 7 and but windows vista back on?
As with all laptops parts are sourced from different manufacturers. Laptops had to be certified for WIN 7. Some ACERs laptop models are, but if the model wasnt certified for the WIN 7 platform they would not have developed a driver for your model. After checking ACER did NOT certify this unit as Windows 7 Compatibile due to driver incompatibilities. You can either downgrade to Windows Vista.. which will require a full reformat of drive (WIN 7 doesnt just uninstall) and reinstall from fresh VISTA.. so be sure and save your data. Or you can determine who makes the webcam in teh notebook and see if the manufacturer has a direct driver..OR FINALLY.. you could load the Vista driver and then go into the webcam software you use and right click and say run in "Windows vista" or "Windows XP" compatible mode. Be sure and keep looking at ACER to see if they state your system can go to Win 7 at a later date as sometime manufacturers will make drivers available which could change its status.

you can try to recover the program by goint into the program files and finding the program there
hold windows key and hit e
pulls up the my computer section select c drive (or main drive)
then go to the program files and find a folder named acer or crystal or do a search within the program files folder for the crystal eye name.
if you do locate the correct name .exe program you can hold right mouse and drap it to the desktop and let go then select copy here or create shortcut.
then you will have the program back on your desktop or do the same and drap over the start program and drap to whatever folder you would like for it to be in.

Go to Device Manager and open up Universal Serial Bus controllers and you should see USB Unknown Device. Right click on the USB Unknown Device and click on Uninstall. Shut down the Aspire One PC. Unplug the power adapter to the PC. Remove the battery at the back of the PC. Wait 1 minute.
Put back the battery. Plug the power adapter. Turn ON the Acer Aspire One pc. It should automatically detect the Acer Webcam and it will be listed in the Imaging Devices at the Device Manager. :) yay
