Acer Aspire 5250 webcam not working. Help?

Question: Acer Aspire 5250 webcam not working. Help?

Okay so my webcam worked about a year ago but I have not used it recently. I tried to use it today but it is not coming up. I keep getting "No webcam found". I clicked on the start menu and typed in webcam and got the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam. I clicked that and still no webcam found. Can someone help me?

Answer:Acer-aspire 5250 Windows 7 - 32 or 64 bit

memongo6,
 
I looked through all the specific models for the AS5250 and they all ship with Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit. If you go the system properties (shortcut keys: press the Windows key and pause break) what does it show as the installed operating system?
 
It should list the Windows edition at the top, and in the middle you'll see "system type" and that will tell you either 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. If you have more than one operating system installed it will ask you which you wish to boot into when you first turn the notebook on.
 
If you are experiencing sluggish performance, is your hard drive (C getting full? A lot of our systems ship with two partitions, a C: partition and D: partition. If you have not been saving pictures, music, videos, or documents on the D: partition you may want to think about moving them over there so it frees up space on your C: and that will help speed it up a bit.

Got a new computer from TigerDirect.com- an Acer Aspire 5250-BZ853 with 2GB RAM stock.
The website offered to add 4GB of RAM to the laptop for about 50 bucks so we went ahead and did that. However, when I got the laptop, it definitely doesn't run as fast as a laptop with 6GB Ram. I have run multiple tests and have confirmed that the RAM is installed properly, as system scans show that I have 5-6 GB of usable RAM available at any given time.

Running Windows 7 with the following system specs-
AMD Dual Core Processor E-350
AMD Radeon HD 6310 (graphics card?)
2 GB DDR3 Memory
320 GB HDD

Is the problem with the memory? Maybe I installed the wrong type? Not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

When I start up my Acer Aspire 5250, I am at the starting windows stage for several minutes than when it loads it enters my profile which has taken up to 7 minutes, but when I enter the desktop is completely blank, except for my cursor. all I can see is my cursor. I can enter the BIOS menu fine so I am stumped. If anyone has this issue or knows how they solved it please let me know.

Answer:Acer Aspire 5250 running home premium desktop will not display.

You can work through the steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start to check for infection, try repairing the boot and System files, to see if you can get into Safe Mode or normal boot, then continue until its fixed with the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

But if you have the Acer factory install then that is the worst install of Win7 one can have to begin with. So what I would do is Clean Reinstall Windows 7 following everything that works best in Win7 in tens of thousands of installs we've directly helped with here, and which has been used by over a million consumers without a single complaint.

Everything needed is in the blue link, and you'll get and keep a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with the tools and methods given.

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 the driver using device manager 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.

I've tried reinstalled the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam program, and when I open it gives me this message:
"Warning
Acer Crystal Eye Webcam cannot connect to your webcam (1.3M HD WebCam). Try selecting another capture device within settings, or close any applications that may be using this webcam and then restart Acer Crystal Eye Webcam."

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. It says the same warning message when I try to connect the Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 that I have to the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam program. I think it recognizes them, but just won't connect to them for some reason.

I assure you, it is not the program, because I have tried Skype, Cameroid, the LifeCam program that the USB webcam came with, and much more... Read more

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

Hi everyone I'm at my wits end! I cannot get my webcam to work. I have tried numerous options posted in different forums and on websites but nothing seems to work. Even when I went to the Acer update driver search site. When I added my model number I got about a dozen driver options but as soon as I put in my OS Windows 7 (64 Bit) it came back with no drivers. I've noticed in a number of forums that peoples webcams where working fine in Windows XP but when they updated to Windows 7 they lose the ability for their computers to find their webcams. Is this an inherent problem with Windows 7 and is there anyway to fix it short of buying an external webcam. Surly there must be a way to get it to work !!!

Question: Acer Aspire Webcam

Driver For Crystal Eye Webcam.I have an acer aspire 1810TZ with integrated webcam. I am running windows 7 64 bit. When the computer boots The Device manager detects an "unknown device" in the USB controller section with the error message "windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43)".  In initially I tried uninstalling then scanning for hardware changes but the unknown device error reappeared.Since the aspire comes with a webcam and the webcam does not launch I suspect the unknown device is the webcam.I have tried uninstalling the device in Device Manager, switching off computer, removing all USB connections and rebooting without success. The unknown device is still detected. Automatically searching for the updated driver responds with "the best driver for your device is already installed".I have tried installing all 3 camera device drivers, one at a time listed on the acer support site http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html (chicony, liteon, suyin) but without success.With the exception of the webcam there are no other issues with the laptop.Any suggestions or input gratefully received.Many thanks.

Hello,

I just did a reformat on this vista machine using the acer e recovery and and everything is fine except that the built in webcam is not working I went to the acer website and installed the bison driver and I am able to see the green light, light up but I can't see anything on say chat roulette or a web cam test site. but I was able to hear my self when I did a recording. So what could be causing the webcam to not work after a reformat. I have heard of others having the same problem after doing a reformat of there 5610z machines.

Thanks,

Ok, so I upgraded my OS with a student discount from Windows 7 starter to Windows 7 Pro. I have an Acer Aspire One A0532h netbook I bought right around a month ago and upgraded about two weeks ago. Before the upgrade, my webcam worked just fine. Now I am unable to even locate the files for the webcam anywhere! Even when I do a search on the whole computer, nothing comes up. It is an integrated webcam. I tried going to the acer support website where I specified my exact computer, model, and such and downloaded all three setups for the webcam but they all had the same error; something along the lines of "no camera detected" or "no camera is plugged in". I dont understand. If anyone could help me, it would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm looking for a driver for built-in Logitech webcam Acer Aspire 5680. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.

I've tried this: Acer Support - Drivers & Download
Acer doesn't seem to have drivers for Windows 7. The XP/Vista drivers do not work. Windows 7 cannot find the webcam.

Any ideas, folks?

Answer:Logitech webcam driver for Acer Aspire 5680

I have a different Aspire model but I found that Windows 7 already supported the web cam. It just doesn't have any software to make use of it.

Click on start, then right click on computer, then properties, then click on device manager (top left). Click next to imaging devices and see if there is "USB Video Device" or something similar. If it's there, yu just need some software to use your camera. You can try this out:

Yawcam - Yet Another Webcam Software

You'll need the Javascript runtime environment. If you don't have it, the installer offers to take you to the web page. Once you have Jave runtime installed, you can go back and install Yawcam. It's not hard to figure out, but you'll have to tell it what device you want it to use. I think you have to do it every time, but I haven't played much with it yet. There are other free web cam programs available also. This is just one that I tried to use with the camera to see if it was working.

Going to the ACER website for driver support is inconclusive because there are several versions of different manufacturers' webcam drivers -- for both a Suyin model and a Chicony model.

I have an Aspire 5250 that I purchsed with Windows 7 Home x64 pre-installed. My system qualified for the free Windows 10 upgrade and I installed Windows 10 yesterday. Now that my system is on Windows 10, I would like to perform a clean install of Windows 10 (I prefer a clean install over an upgrade, especially since this was still the original install from almost 4 years ago). When I view the Aspire 5250 downloads page I see that there is no option for Windows 10 drivers, only Windows 7 and 8. I then noticed another help page that lists all of the Acer systems which will receive Windows 10 support (like drivers and utilities) and the Aspire 5250 was not on that list. When I perform my clean install, should I just use the Windows 8 drivers? Thanks for any and all advice.

How full is your C: partition getting? If it is getting full you might think about moving some documents, pictures, music, and videos to your D: partition if you don't already do that to free up space.
Make sure you are using all the Windows updates.
Depending if you have ever performed it, you might think about reloading the system to factory defaults (back data up first!) and start fresh.

I saw my webcam wasn't working on a website that uses my camera, so I went to Device Manager in Windows 10 and clicked disable, and then enable hoping it would fix the problem. Now it says there is a problem with the driver! I don't understand why when it worked yesterday all of a sudden there is a problem. There have been no changes to this PC since the last time the webcam worked that should prompt this. And now it says "Base System Device" is missing two drivers... no idea what that means. I have searched the Acer website to try and find updated drivers but there are none. Please help!!

Try removing the hard disk and switch it on. Do you get to see the BIOS POST screen?

It was, but when neighbour tried to use a Norton update disc, didn't play and wouldn't eject. Worked with a paper clip, but Device Manager shows a yellow exclam, and uninstall/reinstall says 'windows couldn't...'. Is the drive duff, or is there anything else to try. Thanks.

Answer:acer aspire - dvd not working

It was obviously the Norton disc that caused the problem. It does happen occasionally. DVD drives do reject discs they don't like. Have you tried it with another disc now that you have ejected it with the paper clip method ? The yellow exclamation mark - try updating your driver - ie: right click and select "Update Driver Software"

Answer:ACER aspire S3/391 Bluetooth not working

What you need to do is to uninstall & delete the original driver (right click on the device in Device Manager and select Properties). Reboot and Windows will try to find the proper driver.

Here's what's been going on...recently my laptop's wireless has been having problems connecting to our wireless motem, however it was able to connect to a different one that was farther away and have internet access! So we tried reinstalling the driver which required a factory reset on the laptop and well...not only did that NOT help but now it's failing to detect ANY network! Help... (and I've tried to see if it was a worm virus but it seems now, that is not the case.)
 

Answer:Urg! My Acer Aspire One wireless not working! ><;

Does a factory reset mean that you re-installed the operating system ?
May we see two things :
Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
