How to open acer web cam

if it's a laptop, which it should be, then it will be in your "All Programs" in your start menu. Inside that menu you'll see a list and one folder/application should say: Acer Crystal Eye Webcam.

If your computer was bought second-hand and/or was formatted and it DOESN'T have that in your program files then you're missing the webcam drivers. You can find those on Acer support

Clock on the "Speaker" in the lower right hand corner (near the clock) and select Recording devices. Locate the microphone in question and click on it and select "Set Default" in the lower right hand corner. You can also click "Configure" to verify it is functioning.

My laptop's win 7 desktop did not show any web camera icon so can't snap a photo and save it.

If the webcam came as part of the computer, there will be a webcam software program under "all programs". This software will open and give you options to control the camera.
Go to Start, all programs and look for the webcam program software.

If you found this information helpful, please remember to leave postive feedback. If you need further asistance, I will need the make and model of you laptop to give your more details information.

Thank You,

I bought a new laptop and I cant work my webcam! It wont work at all!

Most new mini laptop have their drivers and software in a second partition on your system (or on the Hard disk drive C:), So all you need to do is Open the second partition (D:) or your drive C: and look for a folder named: Setup/Backup/SWSetup/Software/etc.

Open the folder and search for WEBCAM folder or Webcam driver,

Then run the setup, that should solve the problem.

Else you go to the manufacturer's website; under Support & Download to download the driver or alternative solution.

I am trying to use Skype - webcam worked initially (about 10 seconds) and now is not working .

Firstly, check the webcam is properly connected if it's USB. If it's built-in, obviously there's no need to do this.

Open Skype, then select "Options" from the "Tools" menu at the top.

Next, choose "Video settings" from the menu on the left hand side. Your camera should initialize and you should be able to see yourself on screen.

If you can't see yourself, try rebooting the PC. It was working OK for a few seconds so it's unlikely to be missing drivers or any serious problem .

My Lenovo brand new laptop's intergerated camera is not working from very next day i bought from Croma stores.

Hi nselva,

There are several reasons why the integrated camera in your laptop is not working. Let me give you the most common reasons why and the necessary troubleshooting to fix the issue. You may want to try the steps below:

1. Webcam is disabled - To enable, press Fn + Esc. A camera icon will appear at the bottom right side of your screen. You might see another icon which is a camera with a slash at the middle this means camera has been disabled.

2. Webcam Software - Kindly check if you have the software for webcam installed in your PC. Software is YOU CAM. It might need to be reinstalled on the system. You may get the You Cam software from this link. Just look for Software and then choose You Cam which is compatible to your OS. Download it to your PC and install it.

3. Webcam Driver - Check if you have webcam driver in Device Manager. If there's none you can get the driver on the same link where the You Cam is. All you have to look for is Camera. Select the driver that's compatible to your OS. If there's already an existing camera driver it's also advisable to uninstall it and install the driver that you can get from the website.

If still camera will not work after doing the steps above you will need to contact Lenovo since this is already a hardware issue. Camera needs replacement.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.
