Try the webcam technical support article for step by step instructions to get it working. It sounds like it is either disabled or the driver is corrupt.

My inbuilt cam is not located and working

Pls go to Device Manager and expand Imaging Devices.
Check if your webcam is detected under Imaging Devices.
If it is not listed under Imaging Devices, Then check if there is any other category 'Other Devices'.
If you find the webcam under Other Devices, uninstall the webcam and restart, the computer.
If that doesnt work, then you can try a System Restore or else format the computer.
If you dont find the webcam anywhere in the Device Manager, then there is a hardware failure with the webcam.

Webcam no working

1. Check if the webcam driver is installed. go to Device Manager, if your computr have Vista/7 you can type "Device Manager" in the start search box in the start menu and click on Device Manager in the results list at the top. If you have XP, right click on the "My Computer" icon then Properties, from the System Properties windows go to the "Hardware" tab then from there click on the Device Manager button.

2. Once Device Manager is open, look for "Imaging Devices" click on the small + sign to expand the view and check if your webcam is listed there, if it doesn't come up or if it does and have a red "X" on it, we will need to reinstall the driver to fix it.

3. Most HP/Compaq notebook computers have a "Recovery" partition. We can reinstall all bundled programs and drivers from there. For Vista/7, type "Recovery Manager" in the search box, for XP look for the Recovery Manager in the Programs Menu.

4. When the Recovery Manager program loads, select "Hardware/Driver Reinstallation". A list of all drivers will be listed, look for the webcam driver. Follow the on screen instructions for installation.

5. When installation finishes, the computer might restart automatically or if it doesn't restart the computer.

6. Test the webcam.

Hope this help.

I try to open acer crystal eye webcam but little box opens up that says Camera no found!


Firstly you need to establish wether or not your camera is being detected by your operating system.
To do this, (assuming you are using Windows) right click on 'My computer' and select 'hardware-device manager' from the drop-down menu. You can also select 'device manager' from within 'control panel'.
Check in your device manager to see if your camera is listed. It should be listed under 'sound, video & game controllers'. If your crystal eye is listed but has a yellow dot next to it, or if there is an 'unknown device' listed with a yellow dot next to it, it means that you will need to reinstall your webcam software.
Click on the following link to download you webcam driver if needed:

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Install webcam but can get video in skype


Login to Skype. Now click Tools from the menu bar.
Click Options from the list and choose Video Settings.
Underneath Select Webcam, there is a bar with a little downward arrow. Click on the arrow and a list of webcam devices will appear. Choose a different one from the list. I had to choose USB Video Device to get mine to work.

Hope this helps
