I have been through this scenario with four different clients (I have one of these machines, but have not had the problem as yet...using XP) and all have been running Win7 Starter. The camera suddenly disappears from the hardware profile completely. Suggestions to "uninstall/reinstall" and update the driver for what should be showing as an unrecognized USB device won't work, because it simply doesn't show up at all. BIOS fixes, chipset driver fixes, and restoring the OS have not worked, and Acer support has been singularly unhelpful...even resistant to admitting there is an issue (there are literally hunderds of postings of similar problems). Sorry for the bad news of this response, but that's how it is. My most recent client just bought a USB clip-on camera and at least now they have capability. Best regards.

''Camera not Found!'' Error for Acer Crystal Eye Webcam.


If no devices for the webcam are showing in device manager, and you can't trigger it to be detected, the camera hardware may be dead. One good way to test this would be to back up all your important files to an external hard drive (or your d: partition-acerdata) and perform an acer factory restore by pressing alt+F10 at startup time. Alternately, you could use your discs that came with the laptop, or make a set using the e-recovery management console. The d: partition is not affected by a factory restore. This will tell you if the camera is dead. If it still won't respond after a factory restore, contact acer for warranty service. Acer will likely insist you do the system restore first though.

Hope this helps!

My acer crystal eye webcam is not working on windows 7.all it says is this is not an acer computer but it really is.


hi purpleline.

windows 7 is not yet official this is why the mounted crytal eye on our acer's are not working.

I personally have experience the same issue and reverting my OS back to Vista or XP made the camera work again.

hope this helps.
