How to activate the webcam


Easiest way to activate the webcam I've found, is not to try hunting for the driver, etc... it's usually pre-installed for laptops or netbooks with built-in cameras, best way is to download applications like Skype with video chat, install the software, and then test using Skype. That usually works.

The Software Driver for your webcam might have gotten corrupted. If you still have the driver CD that came with your laptop, you can use that to reinstall the driver for the webcam.

You can also go to this website to download the driver >>> http://support.acer.com/us/en/product_support.aspx?tab=1
Choose the Operating System (windows vista, windows xp or 7), then click on the download button on the right. Once downloaded, run it and that should reinstall the driver for your webcam.

Read this FAQ from ACER:
How to use the built-in webcam? The integrated webcam can be used by third-party applications such as Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Skype etc. Use the webcam button in the messenger software and it will automatically turn on and start the webcam.
Select models of Acer netbooks also ship with a program "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". This program will enable the webcam immediately after startup and can be used to take pictures and record video.

For our Linux-based netbook, you can find the Instant Messenger program in the "Connect" section on the desktop . Additional software like Skype, are available through our special website for the Aspire One netbook. Within the "Fun" section of your Linux desktop, you will find a program called "Webcam" which can be used to test the built-in webcam.


Look for "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" entry in the programs menu, then right click on the program icon and click on "Send to the desktop as a shortcut".

I can't get my webcam to work on my acer aspire one


In Control Panel --> System, in Device Manager, do you see your webcam listed there? If so, does Windows say if it's working normally?

If you see a webcam there but it isn't working, try uninstalling it in Device Manager, then rebooting and letting the Aspire find it and reinstall the drivers. That might square you away.

If not, go here...

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&areaid=2&formid=3394#results

and you can download drivers for your webcam from the Acer site. Be aware there are two webcams listed there, so download the right one. Post back how it goes.
