theres not a button but on start go to all programs then Acer Crystal Eye Webcam. Simple. If on the internet on a chat or something a box should come up asking for your approval to use the webcam simply click the yes button (or approve, something like that) and then it's on.
Try to locate the camera driver and do a update also might be a fix download for the Crystal Eye Cam through Acer Or another download site. Another idea would be to get a driver Program which checks all your drivers on the main items like keyboard, web cam , mouse, monitor, graphics the one i use is DriverDetective works great!
Look in the drop down list in Drivers and utilities for the ones with CCD in them. 3 different types of camera used in that model. Bison, Chicony, Suyin. If you don't know which is yours just try one after the other.
This is a common propblem. There is a fix. Google Acer web cam problems and read some of the forums. They give several links to fix the problem, you may have to try several before finding the right one. Don't worry if it says the driver is for a different model, I had 5000 series here at my shop a few weeks ago and the 9300 model driver fixed the problem.
First thing you need to install AOL messenger so you can enjoy chatting with your friends while you chat with them. In the AOL messenger you can start your cam. There should be an icon of the software that runs your camera on your desktop. Use that to take pictures and save on a specified file location then after that enjoy sending e-mails or chat with your friends with your cam. Let me know if you have further questions.
hi, if its a built in cam , then the driver disk will take care nof it, now for chatting, u just need to open the chat applet, there you can find or go to "My Web Cam" that doed not need any software for video chat, most of the chatt applets are smart to locate your system web cam.. let me know
