Acer V 15 Nitro VN7 Webcam not Working

Question: Acer V 15 Nitro VN7 Webcam not Working

My webcam isn?t working. I have installed the Crystal Eye software and am told no webcam device is installed. 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.

Hi, I have Acer Nitro (591) laptop. Sometimes after restart one or two fans (it seems to be random) does not work at all. Even when computer is heavy loaded one or two fans does not start which finally leads to overheating and shutdown. After restart (or many restarts) fans start working and everything is OK. Any thoughts what may be the problem? Thanks,

Answer:Fan randomly not working - Acer Nitro

yes the fan is physically failing, you need to get it replaced.

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.

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.

Answer:Webcam for Acer Intel Core i7 not working

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 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

Hello guys I'm new to this forum. I sent in my Acer v15 nitro for repair about 3-4 weeks ago because of hard drive issues. It got a tiny damage on the hinge en route by the carrier and acer wanted me to pay for a full system fix which I refused seeing as it would cost me half the amount I paid to fix a tiny corner that had no effect on performance. at first I was gonna take my loss and sell it since I couldnt get the hard drive fixed and maybe look into a desktop but decided to replace the hard drive myself and maybe try and cover the hinge. I've been looking at 7200 rpm hard drives and some SSD's and stumbled upon the WD black 2 dual drive which give me both the things I wanted. However I dont know if it would fit into my computer. Do any of you know if it would? Some say  the WD is 8.8 mm others 9.5mm. If you guys have HD suggestions that would help too.

I got my brand new laptop, my first acer laptop (as well as my life's first laptop), a beautiful V15 Nitro Black Edition. Now, with such an expensive purchase after lots of patience, I am eager to maintain it for as long as I can. So first thing's first, I wanted to know in what manner I should be charging the battery as I've seen people using their laptops as desktops since they can't run without being plugged in for very long! I know it will eventually happen to mine but how to get the maximum charge cycles?Also mine was a display piece at the hypermarket and they keep all the laptops plugged in for months? I'm guessing mine was plugged in since February (based on Mfg date).I read this Document ID 2384 on the Acer website. I think there's a contradiction. Please correct me if I'm wrong.It says UnderOptimizing battery lifeUse AC power whenever possible, reserving battery for mobile use.But Under this it saysConditions that can adversely affect the batteryUsing the computer on constant AC power. so should I have the laptop on AC power or not? And does it make any difference if I use the AC power plugged in when possible and remove the battery alltogether as I read one article citing Acer on this.(The V Nitro, doesn't seem to have an easily removable battery though, I see some fasteners) 













Solved!

Answer:To keep my Acer V15 Nitro, plugged in or not?

 Hi, why is not a contradiction is simple. Using the notebook excesively on battery (almost always) will eventually wear the battery, that's why acer suggest to use it plugged in when possible.However, as I told you above, using it just plugged in is also not the best for the battery since your notebook will try to maintain your battery always at full charge (between 95-100%) and for a lihium Ion battery a full charge state is quite a "stres" which causes the battery to wear over time (generally in batteries when they are "full" the voltage is a little bit higher than the rated voltage and the higher voltage is not the best thing for the lithium ion battery).Just to understand my current notebook has a 10.8V rating on the battery and at full charge the voltage is 12.1V, higher than the rated one. This is normal but it puts "stress" on the battery. As I told you the best option is a mixture between AC and battery.

So first thing's first, I wanted to know in what manner I should be charging the battery as I've seen people using their laptops as desktops since they can't run without being plugged in for very long! I know it will eventually happen to mine but how to get the maximum charge cycles?Also mine was a display piece at the hypermarket and they keep all the laptops plugged in for months? I'm guessing mine was plugged in since February (based on Mfg date).I read this Document ID 2384 on the Acer website. I think there's a contradiction. Please correct me if I'm wrong.It says UnderOptimizing battery lifeUse AC power whenever possible, reserving battery for mobile use.But Under this it saysConditions that can adversely affect the batteryUsing the computer on constant AC power. so should I have the laptop on AC power or not? And does it make any difference if I use the AC power plugged in when possible and remove the battery alltogether as I read one article citing Acer on this.(The V Nitro, doesn't seem to have an easily removable battery though, I see some fasteners) 

Answer:To keep my Acer V15 Nitro, plugged in or not?

Hi, It's not any contradiction.If you plan to use your notebook more like a desktop, most of the time plugged in then your battery will not be very "happy". I know sounds a little bit counterintuitive but a battery which is not used, but is always maintained at full charge it will wear faster than a battery which is cycled.The point is that for a lithium ion battery to keep full charge is sort of a "stress". To maximize battery life try to use the notebook from time to time on battery (let's say once a week do a discharge and a charge). I have an V15 nitro as well and I try to use it on battery once or twice a week and after one year the battery wear level is just 6% which I don't think is high.Cycling the battery also helps the computer to read the battery acurately, thus avoiding some situations where the battery shows a different percentage than the current capacity and your notebook will shut down randomly even if windows was telling you that you still have x% of the battery.

I've recently bought this laptop and am very saddened to hear the amount of complaints about the wifi problems. I've spent a week downloading new drivers, old drivers, tweaking settings, doing everything anyone appears to have tried on Google and I still suffer problems.To sum up, my laptop connects very sporadically to a medium strength wifi connection when on AC power. It seems to connect well on battery power. This shouts to me design fault..All other devices from laptops to phones to iPads have no issue anywhere in the house. I've changed channels and rebooted the router etc etc.If anyone has advice please get in touch.

Currys is UK, yes.So I received the Intel 7265 card today, from Mouser.com, delivered from Texas in 3 days! The problem is no more, the signal is perfect at a distance from the router and is unaffected by performance mode and whether charging or not. Very happy and a highly recommended upgrade.

My Acer V15 Nitro locks up when it goes into sleep mode. By running the battery down, it will start again, after it is plugged in. The key board stays lighted, but the keys don't work. This is the second V15 with the same problem. Windows 10, office and CS6 are the only programs. It doesn't do it every time. The first unit did it every 2-3 weeks and the replacement unit did it after three days.

Hi,  All the review sites mention that the new Acer Nitro series has IPS displays.I am looking at this model and even though the product tour states an IPS display the specifications on both Newegg and Acer website don't mention IPS. Does the model below have IPS display or not ?www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834314701VN7-591G-74LK

I purchased an Acer V15 Nitro VN7-592G last week. It is the 16gb RAM model with the full HD display. I previously owned a Sony Vaio F series laptop, and had to sell it off due to a similar slightly similar issue where the CPU would throttle itself to 770 mHz on battery regardless of remaining batter level. So far, I am grateful of the fact that my V15's i7-6700HQ can run at its turbo frequency, and doesn't lock its clock speed to 770 mHz on battery power provided the charge is greater than 40%, unless I switch to power saving mode. However, only yesterday I observed that the computer would get extremely slow once the battery level drops below 40% due to the CPU throttling itself to 790 mHz according to RealTemp, and Windows Task Manager. I turned battery saver off, and changed the power mode to high performance where all CPU parameters were set to 100%. This had no effect, and the CPU just locked itself to 790 mHz unless I plugged in the laptop, and ran it again on battery power once I was at more than 40% charge. I find this highly inconvenient since the primary reason why I sold my dated (and over-priced) Sony Vaio to purchase my first Acer machine was due to the Sony's poor performance on battery life, their (Sony's) lousy customer service, and the fact I needed a powerful machine with consistent performance whether being run off battery, or AC power since I plan on using the laptop away from the convenience of an AC outlet to e...

Hello,
I recently purchased an Acer Nitro. I use it for gaming, at least 5-6 hours a day, and I watch videos on youtube and films etc.
I have a noticeable issue, audio seems to skip and jutter about like the laptop is struggling a little. I do not have this problem when playing games, only when watching videos online, or watching films and TV shows.
When I use a DVD it is even worse, the audio skips and the video is in a jittery slow motion struggling to keep up, but that is okay as I don't really watch DVD.
I have updated drivers where possible, although I may have missed some.
The problem seems to be marginally worse when not using headphones, and is at its worst when a video, be it on the internet or video playing software, is first starting. The video never seems to stop or skip, it always seems to work perfectly, it is just the audio that has this problem.
I wonder if anyone would know what could be causing it and could offer any suggestions on a solution to fix this as frankly it is incredibly annoying.
I have had the laptop for 2-3 weeks, when playing games i am very happy and feel like my money was well spent, but when using the internet, watching videos/listening to music, the laptop at times feels old and not worth what i paid
Specs are as follows, taken from Acer Care Center;
Aspire VN7-571G
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz (with Turbo Boost upto 2.7Ghz, but i am unsure how to do this)

They also said they update my bios to 1.07 what i find had to believe as it was on 1.07 when i sent it to them. Ive also had no bootable drive again but its a new hdd and im on the laptop the now.Ive had it back about 4 day and am still getting boot trouble its like its forgetting the boot table / uefi settings.  I can get it working but takes me about 20-30minutes to get it to boot in to windows 10 this it no good for a second repair never mind a brand new laptop!!,  am now posting on this forum to find out if any one else is having the same trouble with the very acer or have a solution.

Hello all, I have an Acer Aspire V15 Nitro VN7-592G running an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor. I was converting a video on HandBrake, and noticed a CPU core temperature of 95 degrees Celsius on ThrottleStop. Alerted by the high core temperature, I opened the window, and allowed the cold, Canadian winter air at a temperature of 3 Celsius flow through the fans, and hopefully cool down the processor. When I held the PC against the window, there was no decrease in temperature. The temperature was still hovering within the range of 95-98 Celsius, even though the air being exhausted from both condensors felt cold.I clean the condensor fins on a regular basis, and have Acer DustDefender enabled at all times.Could the high temperatures be caused by defective thermal compound?For the record, my old Sony Vaio F series had a 45 watt Core i7 processor, and it never got hotter than 80 Celsius on maximum load. I have attached a screenshot of the CPU temperature while the CPU was working at its maximum capacity, with the PC being held outside the window. Thanks!

Answer:ACER V17 NITRO - BLACK EDITION

Don't really understand your question, is 110fps and 85fps less then you expected? I think geforce being process of league legends and csgo is as it should read, so i don't think thats wrong, ofcourse it should use geforce to these games and not the intel gpu. Also if the fps is less then expected make sure the laptop is plugged in, not running with battery because you will get more fps when playing plugged in.

it can be 2 things:1) you acer recovery doesn't containt  the whole Acer recovery but just a simple recovery to boot and check about recovery partition on HDD2) Acer recovery can't find the 2TB HDD and so it fails to create the correct D: partition due to smaller SSD size by the way, if your laptop had windows 8.x or 10, you can download and clean installa vanilla Microsoft windows version and then download from support site, drivers and acer applications:windows 8.1http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/create-reset-refresh-mediawindows 10http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Acer support:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers/5614;-;Aspire%20VN7-591G

I am a sophomore architecture student and for studio I bought the Acer Aspire v17 Nitro.
It is equipped with:

i7 intel core
860m Nvidia Geforce GTX
Windows 10
16 GB RAM
64-bit operating system with x64 based processor
Norton security
So in terms of requirements to run the many programs need for architecture including: CAD, Revit, Adobe..etc, this computer should kick ***. However, I have been running into more and more issues. For starters the touch pad has little to no response (I knew this may be a problem when I bought it. I just wanted to know if anyone could suggest a fix). The main issue is that programs are constantly crashing. For example, Word always crashes even if I have no other programs running. The same goes for Spotify and Outlook. Revit and Adobe all crash several times when I use the computer. If a program crashes and others are running, either just the one program crashes or the entire computer gives up and crashes. I paid a lot of money for a computer that should be able to run multiple design programs and this cannot even run Word.

In terms of troubleshooting, I have run security scans and computer cleaners but nothing has come up. I have looked at background apps and turned many off. I turned off many of the start up programs, but still no changes.

Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Acer Aspire v17 Nitro problems

When a machine crashes at many unrelated tasks, it might be a problem with the RAM. Run Memtest for a few hours and see if it detects anything.

Running computer cleaners is bad. There is nothing that needs cleaning, especially on a brand new machine. And the registry does not require cleaning. These cleaner programs cause many problems.

Hi All, I just bought my most powerful machine yet - an Acer Aspire V17 Nitro with i7 processor, GeForce 950M and 128 Gb SSD and 1 Tb GDD, and expanded it to 16Gb. I am more or less pleased with it so far except for the bloatware and the fact that I am migrating from Windows 7 which seems to much more straightforward - Microsoft what were you thinking when you created Windows 8.1! Anyhow after installing all updates for Windows 8.1, I upgraded to Windows 10. Everything seems fine, except that I have an issue with the camera. As far as I understand the situation, if I bought the laptop now (in September), then the camera should definitely be a REALSENSE one. However I cannot get it to work, not even as a normal camera (I get a "camera is in use by another application" error message). Not can I install the Realsense drivers for Windows 10 because I get the message "No realsense camera found". I even tried downloading a demo game that uses the Realsense camera but that did not work either ("no camera found") How can this be? Could it be a faulty camera, or was I maybe sold some older model that had been lying on some shelf somewhere? Or am I wrong about all V17 Nitros having such a camera in September 2015? Is there any way I can check for this camera? And how do I find the date of manufacture of the laptop from the SNID on the base? or by any other means. Any help appreciated. Thanks. J.

Answer:Acer Aspire V-Nitro VN7-791G Issue

Hi there! If you go into the BIOS or the boot menu (F-keys at the Acer Logo) is there a green tinge to those screens too? The reason I ask is that's a low level usage, and has nothing to do with any of the windows drivers etc. If there is a green tinge to them, that would indicate a hardware fault and it's coincidental to the WIN10 upgrade and will need to be picked up by ACER and repaired. If that's fine, we need to dig deeper into Windows. On a side note, if it's windows screens it's usually being drawn by the Intel (2D) side of things, and there are advanced options to change the colours, hues and saturates. Might be worth having a look at them.

Hi, I'm looking into buying an Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro Black addition, but out of all the models, I couldn't find any that had a hard drive faster than 5400 rpm. I will upgrade it if it is the only option, but I'm wondering if there is any way I could get a model with a 7200rpm hard drive out of the box, as if I were to upgrade it later, I would be wasting the hard drive already inside. Is there any way I could customise it like you can with dell laptops? Or is there any model that I have overlooked? Thanks.

Hello, Just over a year ago I bought a new ACER V15 NITRO VN7-591G-56DE, hoping I could use it for studies and some gaming. This generally went fine, with understandable limitations when it comes to newer games.Recently however, there have been some issues, especially when it comes to the GPU (GTX 860M). When playing games using the Nvidia card, after a while (5-10 minutes or so, it differs) the sound starts to freeze and then the entire laptop follows. After that the only solution seems to be to restart it.One of the games where this issue has been frequent is Hearthstone, which shouldn't exactly be difficult to run with the specs on this laptop. On top of that, when I switch to the Intel HD Graphics, at similar (I think) frequency windows will tell me that the display drivers have stopped working, but have been recovered (this is a translation from dutch, I'm not sure what the message would be in english).When this happens, the screen will freeze up for a split second, but then recover and give the message I mentioned. What could be the issue here? I've tried opening up the laptop carefully and getting rid of some dust, but after that the issue remains. On top of that, I don't want to break anything, so I'd rather not open it up too often.Another thing that didn't seem to help was removing the intel and nvidia drivers and reinstalling them. Specs:ProcessorIntel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210H CPU @ 2.90GHzVideo Card 1NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860MVideo Card 2Intel(R)...

You could try reinstalling the drivers for the said graphic cards, and also in terms of heating, its just normal, what matters most is that you don't have any thermal throttling.

Just got it, it came pre-installed with Linpus Linux Lite so I installed Windows 8.1 on it. I used the CD that came with the PC to install the drivers. Everything worked well, but sadly, the WiFi driver just does not work. It does connect to my router, but once I try to load something, it instantly goes to limited connectivity, disallowing me to do anything. I am able to access the router panel, but the router isn't the problem here - everything works well on my Android phone. Any help?

Hello, I installed Windows 7 on my VN7-791G. I changed the boot type into the bios using "Legacy" instead of "UEFI".All my partitions changed (before : 4 partitions on the first hard disk [GPT], now : only one partition [MBR]). No "Windows Boot loader" partition anymore. Before doing this action (installing Windows 7), I saved all my system (factory settings) on a USB device (32 Go), as recommanded by ACER (using their tool installed with Windows 8.1). But now, I don't manage to come back to Windows 8.1 using my USB device (I can boot with this device) : the choice "Re-init PC" doesn't work ! Could you help me please ? Maybe advanced commands to use about the partitions or boot loader ? Thank you.













Solved!

you need to wipe completly your HDD, this means deleting all the partition and the MBR or converting MBR to GPT. you can do it using partition wizard bootable iso:http://www.partitionwizard.com/partition-wizard-bootable-cd.html create a bootable media with the downloaded iso, boot from that and completly wipe the HDD, then reboot and try to use your recovery media.

Ok so here is the problem. I really don't know when this started happening but it suddenly just did. Just a heads up, my laptop has not been through a heavy fall or anything like that. Sometimes the charging indicator light does not light up but the battery still shows as charging in windows. Its at 89% since the last 2 hours. As soon as i unplug the charger, the laptop just turns off and does not start without it. I can't even contact acer support since my laptop is not in warranty anymore ;/. I just did not notice it before because my laptop is usually plugged in on my desk. Please need help asap. Thx in advance

So here is a small help guide for all of you who have temperature issues with your laptop.Few months back I bought the mentioned acer and I love it! Performance is very good and I can play most of the games on high settings 1080p without any issues except for the temperature.When I bought it, after few weeks I replaced the thermal paste since the laptop was hitting 90C very fast.Replacing thermal paste did help but not as I wanted, I managed to keep it under 90C however it was happening again that it will hit that temp.My next step was to use throttle stop, I managed to reduce the voltage of the cpu and it did the trick, however gpu was still going hot e.g after 30 minutes of playing BF4 on 1080p with high/medium settings it will still hit 90C however there was not throttling. I was fine with this up until yesterday when I decided to try and reduce the temp again.Now to the guide:What you will need is thermal paste (obviously)Cotton buds and cleaning alcohol.I personally have used cleaning swabs, the ones that are used before taking an injection but you can use buds as well.So, lay the laptop on a flat surface and take out the screws that are on the back panel.Then you will need a plastic card or anything plastic that is thin enough to be fitted on the front panel, between the case and the panel, slide it in carefuly on all sides and then lift the pannel, be careful as you will need to remove the connections from the mobo and the keyboard as well as the one that is near to th...
