Hi,
Please find the below steps to access Camera Assistant Software:
a. On the taskbar double-click the Camera Assistant Software icon , or from the Windows® Start menu, point to All Programs, Camera Assistant Software, and then click Camera Assistant Software. The Camera Assistant Toolbar location briefly displays on the desktop.
b. On the Camera Assistant Toolbar, click the Start Camera button and click on the icons on the software.
NOTE: If you are not hearing the audio portion of the video you created, try the following: Verify that you do not have the audio capture muted. An X appears on the Mute button when Mute is selected.
Click the Functions button, and then click the Audio tab. In the Audio Output section, verify that the Digital Mic is selected from the Audio Device drop down list, and then click Apply. In the Audio Volume section, use the slider bar to increase the volume level. Verify that the notebook's volume is not muted. Pressing the Fn+End keys mutes the volume. Pressing the keys a second time restores the volume. Increase the notebook volume level by pressing the Fn+PgUp keys.

If the the above steps are not working, then follow the below steps:

You can reinstall the WebCam drivers from the Acer recovery management, to do so:
Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> Restore Application & Drivers> Contents> Select Acer Crystal Eye and install it

OR

Got to http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/
Select the computer model
Select Operating System
Click Drivers
Select Camera (Suyin) and download it.
Once downloaded install it on your computer.

If still facing the issue, then you may need to perform full system recovery, to do so please follow the steps mentioned below

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key
& keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction.
NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Aspire 4520- Windows 7: Webcam does not work properly


windows 7 has a compatibility program built in for addressing those issues from the previous operating system(XP)

go to start and in the search window
type in compatibility
this program will help you by running the program to test its functionality,
it will bring up a list of programs and ask you to select the program your having issues with,
then it will give your operating systems and service packs to test against,
at the end it will ask you if you want to save these settings.Y/N?

If the program runs ok then save the settings and it should continue to work from there.

Shut down and restart should embed these settings ,
Test again for function,
If no luck run the program again

You say that your system is dual booting,why?
windows 7 leaves XP for dust,
remove xp its taking up valuable space on your hard drive and possibly interfering with your systems operations,

Normally the hard drive will only allow one operating system on it,even if you have partions.
Fine tuning is all your looking for so let us know your outcome thanks

If you do a windows back up
which system is it going to back up?
normally it will write over the last backup you made and the new one replaces it,

I have an Acer Aspire 5532. There's a webcam on t he laptop but I can't access. I've tried downloading all the drivers or whatever and I still can't get to it. Maybe its different with Windows 7.


I recently purchased this exact same model - Acer Aspire 5532 from Best Buy. The laptop looks like it could possibly have a webcam on it because of a round piece where a built-in webcam would go but the box clearly states that this model does not have a webcam.
