Acer webcam not working on TravelMate

Question: Acer webcam not working on TravelMate

I am trying to set up Skype on my Acer TravelMate 7510. I have set up everything, including sound, but cannot get the video function to work. I think it is the drivers on the Acer Omnicam software that is causing the problem and I have worked out that it is a Bison driver provider version 6.32.700.1 I do not know what this all means as I am very much a beginner in system stuff. Can anyone please help me to get the webcam working? Thank you very much - I have Windows Vista.

So I never used my webcam after the first month or so of using my laptop, but when I took it out of the box, I knew it worked because it worked when I set up Skype. Now I'm leaving to college and went to check if my webcam worked only to find that Skype couldn't find it. I proceeded to look under Imaging Devices in Device Manager and there's nothing there. I can see the built in webcam, and it's worked at some point, so I don't understand what happened to it. I initially got my computer about 2 years ago with Windows 7 as my OS, now updated to Windows 10. Other than that, there haven't been changes major enough for me to think I broke the webcam. I would try a rollback but I have no idea when this would've happened at this point because I only remember my webcam working right when I got the computer. I've surfed through a couple forums and thought I might need "Crystal Eye Webcam" drivers, but I've found no official Acer licensed places to download that and would prefer not to get malware as a result of attempting to fix this problem. Thanks for your time and hope you can help,-Mkieler3

If a pre-installed Windows 8 app was removed you can find it on the Windows Store. Use the following steps to download and install a removed app:

ok i have an acer 250 it had no wifi module fitted until i got one and wacked it in with antenna's installed ,i added the driver in xp it was all up and running as far as it could be seen from windows and searched for a nework that it couldnt find , i assumed a antenna problem so tried some different ones , but the same fault remained, i then changed the wireless card for another model of intel wireless added the drivers etc but still the fault remains ! so different antennas , and internal wireless cards but the same fault seems to point me in the direction of a bios or manual switch that is disabling the antenna from picking up networks , anyone any ideas.

just for reference i have checked my sid and many networks can be found by my other laptops just not this one Grrr

Hi all,am in need of a little help. We own an Acre Travelmate 2356XM laptop with windows XP. Has been working fine all the way through. Yesterday afternoon however the scroll pad and left/right click buttons stopped working.The laptop powers up fine, no noticeable difference in speed on turning it on. No warning screens to indicate it has found a problem. The keyboard itself works fine, all the functionality is there, all the programmes are untouched and we can still access the internet. The only fault (and it is a very inconvenient one) is that the scroll pad for the cursor and both buttons have ceased, it is as though either a soldered connection has failed isolating that area from the rest of computer or (clutching at straws here) a driver controlling these functions has failed. Have powered down and up several times with same result. There was no advance warning as though it was failing by degrees, Wednesday working fine, Thursday not. Any help gratefully accepted as it is my partner who uses the laptop and I know little about them my area is more desktop oriented, and with laptops being small and fiddly don't really want to approach with a screwdriver unless I know what I'm looking for

Answer:Acer Travelmate, scroll pads not working

Have you tried "mouse properties" in the controll panel? I havn't got an Acer but my Dell laptop has got a tab in there that adjusts the touchpad, worth a look if you havn't already tried it

Worked just fine before updating Win 7 to Win 10, I went to Acer aspire one forum and downloaded the software for Win 10 webcam. There is no icon shown that would start up the cam so i have to go to the Downloads folder, find the download, installed and extracted it and restart the notebook and still no video. I did setup, BTW. D M says as usual all is working fine. Any Acer Aspire One 722 users here and solved this problem? I do not want to install Skype to see if it works there, cause I don't use Skype and find it very difficult to get rid of Skype afterwards.

The webcam on my Acer Aspire SW5-011 stopped working suddenly. I've checked for updates in Windows 10 and everyting is up to date. There are no conflicts or issues in Device Manager. I am running Windows 10 Home version 1511 (which I believe is the latest version). I've tried using the webcam with a couple of different apps and it's not working. For instance, when I try using Skype, I get a notificationn that it couldn't find a webcam and that I should install one. Any ideas? Thanks!

Answer:Webcam not working on Acer Aspire SW5-011

After installing windows update from the windows 10 Operating System, you are still facing issue with webcam to be working. To help you further, it is advised to uninstall the previous webcam drivers from the laptop and then let the windows 10 automatically reinstall it by its own. To uninstall webcam drivers, please follow the steps given below:- Press ?Windows? key + ?R? key on the keyboard.- Type in ?devmgmt.msc? in the run box and hit Enter.- Now device manager will open up, search for ?Imaging devices? from the list.- Right click on ?Imaging devices? and click on ?Properties?.- Now click on ?Driver? tab and then click on ?Uninstall? button to uninstall the webcam drivers.- Restart the system once the drivers are uninstalled and then wait for a while to windows automatically install the drivers.If issue persists, it is recommended to contact Acer Support Center for further assistance from the link given below:http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/ Hope this will help you.

I get the same message in Skype.I have been in device manager and do not see a webcam there either. There is no unknown device that could be the webcam either.I checked the BIOS and there is no way to disable or enable the webcam there. There is no FN button that seems to disable or enable the webcam.

Answer:Acer V 15 Nitro VN7 Webcam not Working

As the webcam is not displayed in the Device Manager as well, it seems that this is a hardware issue. To check this further, you are advised to contact your nearest Acer service center through the following link:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service Hope this will help you.

Is the camera listed in Device Manager? If it's not listed, that would indicate it is no longer recognized by Windows, which typically indicates a hardware fault (ie: bad camera).

So, I have an Acer Aspire 5750(Not a z or g, just 5750) and it runs Windows 7.
About this time last year my webcam stopped working suddenly. Nothing to my knowledge happened to make it stop, I just came home one day and it wouldn't work.
I'm having a hard time finding a driver to install for it, since the Acer website doesn't seem to have one, I uninstalled it and restarted my computer for it to reinstall and that didn't fix the problem. I also used eRecovery and that didn't seem to work either.
Another odd problem is that even the USB webcam's will not work with it, so I'm not entirely sure that the driver is the problem. I've done my fair share of research on this problem and cannot come up with a solution.

Answer:Acer Aspire Notebook built in (and USB) webcam not working.

maybe the internal WebCam is not working correctly, but the computer thinks that it is so is not allowing any other type of WebCam to work hard to go into device manager and make sure that the internal WebCam is on installed, if not uninstall it restart the computer and see if it works, and get back to me.

I have purchased a second hand ACER ASPIRE 5334 from a friend. He wiped the drive and re-installed Windows 7 and so up and running.

The only problem I have is that the computer seems not to recognise it has its own Webcam and so it doesn't work.

I thought it might be a driver missing so I tried to download the driver from both the driver disk that come with it and the Acer website, they both told me the webcam couldn't be found. It is there as I can see it. I looked in the devices manager and the computer does not seem to recognise it has a camera.

The computer did some windows updating, in fact 93 updates and then I looked again in devices and there was a webcam but still would not work. The next day I thought I would download the webcam driver from the disk and it still said there was no webcam, I looked again indevices and it was gone

Any ideas please

Answer:'Acer Travelmate 230 fan problems'

It sounds like what is happening is your laptops processor is getting hot and therefore the fan is coming on. I'm not 100% sure as to why this is making it jerky. My only guesses are that it is either is getting hotter and this is affecting the processor in some way. The other one which I think of would be it nicking the power from it. I think the latters very unlikely though. Try reducing the quality when your playing the games so the processor doesnt have to work as hard. If that doesnt work ring tech support at acer and see if they can say anything about it

Hello everybody. Its nice to find a company that makes it easy to post to the world wide community.I need the drivers to two old laptops,both of them in original and pristine condition.Both work perfectly but the Hard drives are removed. Caddies are intact so all I need are the DRIVERS for WINDOWS 95 or WINDOWS 98 Second Edition for both.One is the TRAVELMATE 506T The Other is an ACER/TEXAS INSTRUMENTS EXTENSA 650CDT. I can find no listing for either but wonder if ,after ACER's takeover of Texas Instruments Notebook departmentthe Travelmate 605t is the renamed Tex Inst. Extensa 650cdt? Therefore the drivers work for both laptops. I would be very grateful if someone could provide a link to a site which provides these drivers for Windows 98/95 only.I am NOT interested in the drivers for Xp to Windows 10. Lol. Thank you.Simon

I have an Acer Travelmate 5520 laptop - windows XP - the computer is not booting properly. Sometimes it starts up just fine - other times - I get weird large dots across the screen and then the screen goes multi-coloured lines....Sometimes I press the power switch it thinks about starting for a few minutes....then nothing.I'm using this computer in the Caribbean and wonder if it has anything to do with humidity?

Hi All.

I have owned a Travelmate 290 for 3 years. I have not had any trouble with it in that time until now. The lap top will run for a time then the screen will start to flicker, the touchpad will become erratic and the HDD light will come on. Sometimes after a few minutes the laptop will return to normal, sometimes it will lock up with the HDD light on and the power light off (The laptop lives mainly on the mains but these symptoms also occur when it is on battery power). The only way to get out of this situation is to unplug the power supply and remove the battery. I have scanned the laptop for viruses and spyware. None were found.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in Advance

Anthony
 

Answer:Acer travelmate locking up

3 suggestions:

1) Monitor your CPU/MB/HDD temperatures. It could be overheating.
2) Check the Event Viewer in Windows
3) Get Process Explorer. See what is taking up your CPU during the problem.

Process Explorer is free:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/processexplorer.mspx

Speed Fan is free (temp monitoring):
http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php

Come back and post any significant warnings in Event Viewer, what is using all your CPU (if anything) during the issue, and your temperatures.

I will eventually need the portability and long battery life of my Centrino Acer.At present, though, it's used for long periods at home. It's got a Lithium Ion battery pack and there's no handbook guidance given as to whether it's safe to run on AC mains power continually - I err on the side of caution and charge the battery when necessary.But there's a finite number of times that the battery will accept this before needing replacement - and it won't be cheap!Anyone have a similar laptop situation? What do you do or what does the instruction book tell you?Any advice / comments would be welcome.

Answer:Acer Centrino Travelmate

If I am using my laptop for a few days at a time plugged into the mains, I remove the battery pack. Otherwise I run the battery down completely and then charge up again when I need to run it on battery.

Hello well i'll get straight to the point, my friend has a laptop which is broken. it is running windows xp service pack 2, and it is a acer travel mate 2420, it has been dropped on the floor but it still switches on but it goes straight to the boot screen where you can choose from safe mode , safe mode with networking etc. if you press either of these options it just freezes and does noting at all. you cant reconfigure to a last known good configuration either. I tried everything, i was thinking maybe i could change the boot sequence and make it boot from CD first and then use a windows XP cd to reformatt it, but it has a password on the BIOS settings so i cannot change it just yet, but what i wanted to know is would changing the boot sequence help me? i tried putting the windows xp cd disc in when you switch it on but it doesnt load up..
well i would appreciate any advice from you guys =]

-Adam-

Answer:ACER TravelMate 2420 *HELP*

changing boot settings will only allow you to boot to another device first.

10 to 1 the hard drive got ruined when the laptop was dropped, especially if it was running while it was dropped. The platters in the hard drive spin at about 5400 RPM's and the read/write heads basically float over the platters, believe about 50nm's. in other words imagine a plane flying at about a million miles an hour at an altitude of 50 feet....and then you get dropped, you just left a nice long gash that nothing can live in again (data on the hard drive)

you can run a diagnostic test on the hard drive to be sure.

but to get it to boot from the cd, just need to push the right key to open the boot selection menu when its loading the bios. F12 on most laptops, but forgot on acers, might be F11

Answer:Acer travelMate 4050

Please...do not interrupt the system anytime that a chkdsk is in progress.

Leave the system alone...when the system has file problems or the hard drive or partition is fouled up...it's normal for the chkdsk to go back toan earlier stage, IME.

When the chkdsk is finished and the system boots into Windows...I suggest that you do the following:

a. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.

b. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter.

c. Reboot the system. The chkdsk /r command will run to completion...before booting into Windows.

I was given an Acer travelmate C-100 and it came with everything pretty much unused.
When I try to turn it on it just won't. No lights light up or anything.
I have charged it for a long time and I also have plugged it in and it still won't start.

The green light on the power source plug lights up the little green light so I know the plug works I have also unplugged and replugged the power souce plugs.
I have never used let alone seen one of these. The book troubleshooting says check plugs and that is about it.

Probably referring to the SATA driver, which you should be able to get from Acer. If you can find it just put it on a USB key (if you have one) and when you get o the part in the install when it asks about installing drivers point it at the USB key.

I was planning to get a laptop but due to budget constraint I have kind of decided on Acer Travelmate 4335. But I wish to install Vista on it rather than the Linux it comes with. My problem is I am not quite sure about the built in graphics card it comes with. I don't need a very high end graphics card, but I won't like it to be the same as my age old desktop (which can't run vista aero). So if anyone is using this laptop on Vista, pls let me know how does it perform ...
 

Answer:Acer Travelmate 4335

Vista will slow that machine down far too much. XP would be a far better choice for an OS on that machine. Vista is a resource hog, and that laptop isn't going to do well with it.

Good evening to you all. My problem is fairly specific to the random, undefinable software of the Acer Travelmate 4222. For those unfamiliar with it, there are a series of key commands you can give to easily turn the volume up or down, activate the wireless internet card, etc. and the command you just gave would show up in bold green text on the screen (i.e. Wireless LAN Activated, Wireless LAN Disabled). However, a few weeks ago, the helpful green text stopped showing up. The various key commands still work, but I enjoy being told what I just did.

So does anyone know how to restore my beloved green text reminder thingies? I am aware that this is a vague question and I thank you for your time.

My Acer Travelmate has suddenly developed a problem with part of the screen being blacked out.
It is a widescreen and about 3" on the right hand side now blacked out as though it has now become a 4:3 format. There is also a ghost taskbar along the bottom of the screen that I can't get rid of.

I have tried refreshing the screen again to 1024x768 but it does not cure it.

I am unsure if it is a hardware problem ie the screen backlighting has failed or a control board has faulted.

Has anyone any ideas that I could try to pinpoint the problem please?
