Acer orbi webcam for lap top acer aspire 5630 not working by skype???


Check your device manager for device flags.
If found remove them. Remove the device and allow windows to reinstall the drivers.
If the imageing device is not being shown in device manager, you may have a bad webcam.
Remove any, all usb input devices and reboot to safe mode.
Check your device manager for device and flags.
If your imaging device shows up in your device manager and not in Skype, try removing Skype and reloading
Hope this helps

Hi, I have Acer Aspire 4710 and my Crystal Eye Webcam is not working at all with any Skype version. Right now I have Skype 5.5 and it's still not working but when I open the Crystal Eye Webcam it works...


You need to redownload the drivers for your crystal eye web cam. Go to this link: http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
When you get there, select "Notebook"...then select "Aspire". Then scroll down and select Aspire
4710 Then where you see "Operating System", select your operating system (ex: XP, Vista, or Windows 7). It will then show all the drivers for your operating system...scroll down until you see the camera driver software and then download and reinstall it. Hopefully this will help...good luck.

Hi, my Acer Aspire 5732z does have a web cam, but it won't work. I've de-installed the driver and downloaded a new one from the Acer website, but it still won't function. If I open up Acer...


If there are no error status codes under device manager, then either you have some OS corruption and need to reinstall the OS or the webcam is defective. I would be more inclined to say the latter.
Skype is a good test, since you've obviously done that its most likely bad.
You could test the os theory by downloading hiren boot cd, burn the image to disc and boot into the mini xp live part, install skype and driver under it and test the web cam.
If its under warrenty just have them replace the web cam, if not i could replace it at a reasonable price. Comment back for additional assistance.
