Crystal Eye is a webcam application included with some Acer laptops. Laptops that have the Crystal Eye WebCam application installed also have a camera built in to the monitor. Crystal Eye can adjust the camera's brightness, contrast and color intensity, and capture photos. If you removed the Crystal Eye WebCam application from your Acer laptop on accident, you can download the software from the Acer website and reinstall the application to your PC.
Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Input "device" into the search box. Click "Device Manager." Expand "Imaging Devices." Double-click the Web camera to find the name of the manufacturer. Go to Acer Support. Select "Notebook" from the "Select Your Product" menu. Select the notebook's product line, then select its product model. Click "Confirm." Click the "Applications" tab. Select an operating system from the "Operating Systems" drop-down menu on the far right. Scroll to "Camera." Download "WebCam Application." Use the manufacturer information found in Device Manager to determine which vendor to download from. Save the file to the desktop. Double-click the file to run the setup for the Crystal Eye WebCam. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
