    I just bought a laptop Acer Extensa 5620 about 1 month ago. After 2 weeks with me, I upgraded the OS from Vista home edition to Vista Ultimate 32 bits. Everything alright, but the menu for empowering Technology had gone, so I can,t get the my Cystal Eye Camera.

    My question is, how to return back the Empowering Menu so Ican open again the web camera.

You can go to the manufacturers website to check if you have the very latest driver for your webcam. if not, you should be able to download it from there.

Go to control panel, then system properties, then device manager, then hardware. check imaging devices to see if your webcam is recognized.
