SOURCE: when i try to turn

Please unconnect the camera and then plug it back into the computer.
If that does not solve the problem, reboot the computer.
If that does not work, uninstall and re-install the camera drivers by inserting and launching the CD which came with your camera.
Please remember to vote for me if you like my solution.

Hi
Please go here --> http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/drivers and select your model of Acer
choose the Opeerting System you are using and then search for 'camera' download al drivers if you are not sure which camera you have
Once it has downloaded, try to install the driver for your camera. if it is the wrong driver it will complain and let you know it cannot find your model of hardware.
try all the camera drivers for your model of PC.
All the best now,
Phil

Check if you driver is correct, wether your operating system is 32 or 64 bit it should match the webcam driver.

Acer aspire 5334 crystal eye webcam stopped working


Not installed? Look at the Device Manager and see if there is a camera under Imaging Devices, if not, it is not installed.

In use by another user, well rebooting would take care of that issue.

If it's installed and the drivers are there correctly try ManyCam, it's so simple.
You can always download Manycam and install it. Go towww.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com"(without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When thesite opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says FindSoftware. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the whitesearch area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your resultslook for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it andinstall it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs itwould like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additionswhatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use,and you will always know where your webcam software is.

I have Acer aspire one d255, Why my acer crystal eye webcame can not be used? There is a message Camera is not installed or camera is occupied by another user. Please help me....


When computers issue nonsense messages regarding driver conflicts like this, first on my suspect list is the residual effects of a virus/worm/trojan horse/malware/rootkit/spyware. Do a deep virus scan on your system, then restart your system. If the error re-appears, then the virus has left behind resudual damage (to the software). You may be able to fix this damage by de-installing the driver and other
software and driver for this device, then re-installing the driver & software.

The acer web site for driver downloads is below, but it looks like you have to register your
acer product to access the driver(s) - since I'm using a HP Pavilio laptop, I was unable to
access the drivers for your computer.

Hi there, My Crystal Eye Webcam stopped working. I have re-installed from the original on the HDD it tells me ok. Skype can't find it. In Device Manager it's not visible. I also tryed to start...


Try downloading and installing the newest drivers for the model of your computer.
http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/download.htm

If this doesn't fix it, make sure you are not using any programs like ManyCam or anything that would be using your webcam. You can only use the webcam in one program at a time.

I can't find acer crystal eye driver for Acer Aspire 4736z


If your webcam is installed in an Acer computer product you may be able to find support on the Acer website. Would need the name and model numb r of your product.

If you have a stand alone Acer webcam you may have to try one of the sites that make drivers available. This one may be one of your best options:
