Help Acer Aspire 7720 with Crystal Eye Webcam

I just bought this laptop 3 days ago and I cant get the webcam to work with Windows live messenger It works with skype. When I select my webcam in messenger it tells me Windows cant find the webcam. Close all programs that may be using it. If I shut skype down and select my webcam in windows live messenger it still doesnt work. Sometimes if I try to turn my webcam on it says it is busy. I have tried uninstalling messenger and reinstalling still same problem. I tried updating driver for the webcam and it tells me I have the most recent driver. Any help woud be appreciated :)

How do i get the drivers crystal eye 1.3m video webcam window 7 for aspire 4339 ?


I would go to the Acer website, under support, and type in your model number to get the driver..it might be for windows vista, or windows xp, but if it dont work..it will ask you if you want to use the recommended settings to install the driver, just click yes..and see if that works..worked for me, when I re-installed windows 7 instead of Vista..just select 64 bit version of vista in the drop down box..

Win7 64bit home premium. Acer aspire 5551G - crystal eye webcam. Windoes detects and install camera as 1.3 usb webcam. Does not allow crystal eye software to 'take control' of the camera.


Hi Ian,

The Camera is fact Liteon, and your using sunyin driver to operate it, is that correct?

If so, WHY?

Apropriate and recommended drivers for specific hardware, else things go BELLY_UP!!!!

Try installing the recommended drivers for your Liteon camera.

Cheers,
Peter

Pleease help me turn my webcam on as i have not got a clue how to turn on my webcam wich is installed onmy laptop


Is this a new Windows installation? Vist Acer site and install the chipset drivers. Windows 7 does not install these automatically. However Windows 7 can continue upgrading drivers a few days later.
