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.

Not opening my webcam


Hi,

Good day to you. In regards to your issue usually Acer Laptop users are facing problem with the Webcam Driver while migrating to Windows 7. While other devices work with the Windows 7 inbuilt drivers, the Acer Crystal Eye Web cam device needs an explicit Driver.

You can install this one to make your crystall eye webcam to work. This version works well with windows 7

Click the link to download:
http://www.techrena.net/downloads/Acer_Camera_Suyin_v.5.2.5.3_Win7x86x64.zip

> After download this file, just extract it to your computer using Winzip.
> Then install the driver
> Then restart your pc to finalize the installation

After that your acer crystall eye webcam should work. Hope this work for you in resolving your issue. Have a great day.

My acer crystal webcam is not working


Right click My Computer and select Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, then click on Device Manager. Expand out the Imaging devices. If Acer Crystal Eye webcam is not listed, proceed to Acer's website to download the drivers for the webcam specific to your Acer's make/model.

If Acer Crystal Eye webcam is listed, double click on the Acer Crystal Eye webcam listing. This opens a properties box. Check that the Device usage is set to "Use this device (enable)." Select the Driver tab to check on the driver's status. Choose to update the driver. This might fix it. If not, return to the General tab and click the Troubleshoot button.

I'm not sure if your problem is fixed yet or not, but I had this same problem when I updated to windows live 2009. But whenever I deleted it and got an older version of live it works just fine. So, I think it's msn and not the webcam..but i'm not positive about that. Mine just seemed to work after I got an older version.

If it isnt listed under hardware then something may have happened to cause the computer to delete the file "virus protection or firewall" and it may be that your computer just isnt reconizing the software anymore. if you have an installation disk try to use it and reinstall the stuff and go from there.

If you go to your start menu, look for a programme called 'acer crystal eye webcam' and that will bring up your webcam programme.
It is not in the folder 'Acer crystal eye webcam' though, just 'Crystal eye webcam'.

start \ all programmes \ Crystal Eye Webcam \ Crystal Eye Webcam.

If this proves fruitless, type webcam into the search option at the bottom of your start menu and look for the crystal eye webcam.

If these do not work, then look in your control panel to make sure it is installed. If not, contact company, they have a good customer service standard (from my experience)
