This is the procedure for solving consider replacing your battery problem. Start by running the command prompt with administrator privileges. This will give the full control over the command prompt. There are those commands that can only be executed when you are using the command prompt with administrator privileges.

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.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer

You have to verify exactly what type of memory to use.
Also, it is possible that it isn't seated properly.

However, I'm unsure if you are referring to 2 of the same model computers you are trying the memory in.

Make sure that the laptop can use more than 2GB Ram
You must first verify the limitations of the mother board, or computer model before upgrading.

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.
