Vista does not include any way to test the camera. You may have QuickPlay in the Programs list - this will test the camera.
You can use MSN messenger and establish a video link or load Skype.
Try this
Willing WebCam Lite from www.willingsoftware.com if you want to test it.

My 8920 came with a desktop shortcut (which i clicked by accident), and my crystal eye worked as soon as vista was installed.

Hi, Internal microphone on my acer aspire 8920g which originally has vista is not working now on windows 7. To be honest I didn't pay attention while I had vista and can't now remember if it worked at...


I suggest you go into control panel and device manager and see if your internal mic is listed there. If it is right click on it and see if it is selected as your default mic. I believe it may be un-selected. If that doesn't work I would just use the external mic with Skype as the internal mics with most laptops aren't that good anyway.

My brother recently died and I have inherited his Acer 8920g notebook. Unfortunately he had set an HDD password on it and I can't find the password anywhere. Is there any way of getting into the machine at...


You may be able to use backdoor bios password, not all bios chips have them, but its worth a try, check HERE
IF it is a HDD password and not a bios password, buy a new HD. You would need to install a OS and drivers, but you may be able to attach the old drive in a caddy and retrieve the contents.

If this does not work for you, please write back and i am sure we will fix it

My acer 8920G doesn't shut down, but restarts


Did you upgrade or totally reload the os from scratch? Usually improper shut down sequences are caused by corrupted os.
