Actually sir when i bought this laptop,i was given acer driver cd,in which drivers for both vista and xp were ther.i dont knw whether the drivers were for 32bit or 64 bit.do th drivers also depend on vista 32 bit and vista 64 bit?i hav got vista business edition ie. probably 32 bit.so is ths th problem tht i hav got th driver for the 64 bit vista with me.i think ths is th problem,wht do u think?
1. Downloaded the file. 2. Unzipp it to a folder on my desktop. 3. Run the "Setup.exe" file in the folder that got unzipped. 4. Go through the installer until it got to the end and then let it restart my computer. 5. Wait for computer to restart. 6. It should pop up something saying it was installing the drivers for my webcam. Wait until it was done. 7. Open the Control Panel. 8. Open the Device Manager. 9. You shoud find webcam under "Imaging Devices". It may be listed as "HP Pavilion Webcam" despite having just installed the Acer drivers. 10. Right-clicked on my webcam and chose "Update Driver Software..." 11. Chose "Browse my computer for driver software" 12. Chose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" 13. Unchecked the "Show compatible hardware" checkbox. 14. Scrolled down to the Chicony manufacturer. 15. Chose the "Acer Crystal Eye webcam. 16. Tell it to install anyway when it asked me a question about installing that driver. 17. Wait for the driver to be installed. 18. Webcam was now listed as an Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Device Manager.

You need to reinstall your Web cam's drivers. If you have the drivers on a cd, reinstall them, if you dont have them, visit Acer's website, www.acer.com and go to the "Drivers and Support" page, enter your laptop model and the operating system you are using, then download the web cam drivers (Acer Crystal Eye) and install. That should solve your problem.

Sounds like you have a driver problem, go to acer.com, download the drivers for your make and model for the cam drivers, make sure you select the right O/S.. exp Windows Vista, Windows XP.... and so forth..
I think that the most likely problem here is the driver/software of the webcam, which is the acer crystal eye webcam. You should just uninstall the software from Add/Remove Program (Windows XP) or Programs and Features (Windows Vista).
When you open the page by default it should show the Drivers tab. Under the tab there are items you can choose from: Select Product Type, Select Product and Select Download. You first need to click on the "Select a Product Type" choose there Notebook. Then it will goto the next item which is "Select Product" choose there the model of your laptop which is an Aspire 4530. Then it will automatically goto the "Select Download" and it will show all the possible drivers you can download including the webcam drivers (acer crystal eye webcam) and they are labeled either for Windows XP or Windows Vista. So pick the one you need.
