Preferred Solution: acer aspire v5-571 default webcam not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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 5315 webcam not working in windows 10

Just thought to add that my 5315 runs Win 10 just fine, except that I can't work out how to get the webcam to work. Win 10 has installed a programme called CAMERA which although it is in the Apps list which come up in All apps, cannot be either started or removed from the list ??????
I tried installing several different webcam drivers for the 5315 but none of them work. I have uninstalled them all now and will do some more research for a solution.

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.

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.

I have an Acer Aspire 5741-5698 running Windows 7.  I never want to connect to the internet wirelessly.  I only want to connect rarely with a wired connection.  I can disconnect the wireless by pressing Fn+F3 but I never see a "Launch Manager".  The problem is when I turn off the computer and turn it back on, it defaults to connect wirelessly.  I went to Manage Wireless Networks in Control Panel and selected Manually Connect to my home Network.  That did not work.  How can I stop it from connecting automatically wirelessly?

Answer:Turn Off Default Wireless On Acer Aspire 5741

Hi, I am running Windows 8.1, and a couple of days back, my computer which was running smoothly, went to the blue screen. It gave the error: default boot device missing or boot failed. Press Enter to choose the bootable device. However, when I press enter, there are no options to choose from, no list. I am assuming this is a BIOS error (I hate SSDs now) since I did not further update my BIOS from v2.05.  Pressing F2 during boot does nothing, I will try to press F12 and see if that gives me boot options. I have also made a USB BIOS bootable drive. However, I do not know how to proceed (a novice). Can anyone please advise, please tell me, if possible, a few options, as the first option generally never works (personal view that things are not that easy). Thanks a lot in advance. SusmitP.S. If you need any further system information, kindly let me know.

Answer:Acer aspire s7-392: default boot device missing or...

if F2 doesn't work, connect your USB bootable pen, reboot and press F12.you can try to press ALT+F10 at boot and check if Acer erecovery works. if this doesn't work, probably the SSD died, if you are under warranty, i suggest you to contact the Acer support service.

Hello, my 2 years old, out of warranty, Acer Aspire V3-772G with WIN10 is giving me a message ?default boot device missing?.I tried to take out the battery for a few seconds, take out the HDD and gently clean the inside of the laptop as well as the HDD from dust. I have also followed up on a thread where somebody with the same error but on WIN8 and a different Acer laptop was told to download the BIOS install file (isST2212.exe), Create a recovery drive and run it on a USB drive, change the Bios to Legacy Boot, move the USB HDD as the first boot device and end up in a WIN8 recovery console.

1. Go to Device Manager /imaging devices. right click on camera and click disable.Reboot and go back and enable camera. 2. There are 3 drivers for the camera in Windows 7 64bit. You only need 1 of them.If you're not sure which one you need, on the Acer driver page,above the driver list, you'll see "Need to know the hardware on your system to choose the right driver?", click on that and download and run the Hardware detector and run it.Download the correct driver.Uninstall all camera drivers and software in Programs and Features and Device Manager, checking box delete software.

I've only had this laptop it for a little over a year and having the keyboard just stop working is very dissapointing and a little frustrating. Anyway, I was wondering if there was any possibility of getting this repaired, because I've been informed that the keyboards of these laptops are connected to the motherboard in a way that would require getting a whole new motherboard just to replace the keyboard. I don't know if this is true or if there is anyway to repair my keyboard without replacing the whole **bleep** motherboard, so if anyone knows it would be awesome if you could help me out. 

Answer:Acer Aspire E15 keyboard not working?

Not sure where they got that info. However you can replace the keyboard. That does take some doing. But I think a person would most likely replace the whole top part. That is track pad and all. I would say look on eBay for you type and see if they have any.When you take apart you remove power, battery, 14 or 16 screws from the bottom. Remove drive from the bay. Use old credit card to separate the 2 half. Then there is some ribbon cables that would need to be removed carefully. If you got the whole thing. Then put in New one same way you took out old. However if you just got the keyboard you will bee to take out 8 to 10 more screws peeling tape from the ribbon cables and to access the small screws then the keyboard can be removed. For me I would try and find whole top plate would be less work.James

I would make sure the touch pad did not some how get turned off. Go into the menu, if you're working with XP/ Vista it should be in the control panel under mouse. There should be a tab that has an option for the touchpad. It might open up a window, either way there will be something that gives you an option for enabling or disabling it. Make sure that it is enabled.

I have an Acer Aspire S3 with Windows 7.

My Crystal Eye web cam's image has horrible horizontal lines running through it and crashes if the resolution is not set at 1280x720. I cannot adjust it higher or lower without it crashing.

When I try to use the web cam with Skype I get up to 1 minute of talk time before it crashes on me. When I use it on Google Hangout I get about 3 minutes before it crashes.

It is under warranty and I have tried contacting Acer's tech support. They assisted me with uninstalling and re-installing the drivers as well as doing a factory reset, none of which had any effect. I sent it in to them, according to the report sent back, they re-installed the drivers again and sent it back saying it was fixed.. but the problem was still there. I sent it to them a second time, they did nothing and reported that the web cam functioned fine, although it is still clearly having issues. I am going to contact them again, but I was hoping someone else might be able to help since their tech support has proven to be incompetent.

I am at my wits end. Any help/suggestions you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I use Windows 7. When I first got this laptop the Fn key would work with other keys (such as brightness), but not change the volume. The place I bought it from had someone fix it, only I've moved away since then. It's been working for about three months now and all of a sudden I'm having the same problem again. I've tried going to the msconfig and looking through the startup, but everything is checked. This is a very frustrating problem for me, the sooner it's fixed the better.  - Also! I'm terrible with directions, so if you could be very clear and step by step, that'd be nice.

Did the keys never worked? Or have they recently stopped working? If they have recently stopped working, check if you have a restore point that is older than the day you started facing this issue. If you have such a restore point, try doing a system restore by following the steps mentioned in the article below:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows-8/restore-refresh-reset-pc

Hello! Yesterday I wanted to install Cambridge Advanced learner's dictionary from the dvd but when I inserted the DVD I was shocked for the dvd icon does not appear even in the device manager! I tried many solutions that are available out there but no success even the registry edit! I inserted my Windows 10 Education DVD to reinstall windows but the DVD doesnot work in boot also! I have a usb stick with Ubuntu I could not boot from usb (even the one which has windows 10 files) unless I change boot mode to legacy. After Installing Ubuntu 16 the DVD is still not working! Today I have reinstalled Windows 10 creators and the problem is still persistent! Now I am running Ubuntu 16. Please what should I do? Thank you in advance
