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.)

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 !!!
Regards Brett.

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.

Hi
I can open the webcam, take pictures and also start to record a video, but when I stop the video it says its not responding, so I have to close it with task manager. After when I reopen it the video is there, but every time I try to video it does the same. The sound is there but distorted?

I ran a compatibility test and the result is 'Incompatible Application' ???
I tried to update the drivers and it said it was up to date.

Any help with this?

I have the Acer Aspire Notebook 5734Z-4725. I have had the black screen with the USB sound going off. I've been getting a pop up saying I can use a faster port but close it because I don't know about ports and don't want to screw up my computer and the pop up notice saying the camera is in use. I have deinstalled/reinstalled the driver. I have also done a system restore on the computer which set it back to factory settings that didn't work. As far as I can tell it is the same driver. Sometimes it seems to be working fine like the video will work but this is very rare and if I move my computer it puts my webcam back to a black screen. My webcam doesn't work with skype, ooVoo, msn, yahoo nothing.please help i'm so tired of it not working it has been like this over a month i have been on the internet for hours looking for a solution.

Answer:Acer Crystal Eye Crystal webcam isn't working

Do you have a recovery option to reinstall the driver. Note : This image is on a Sony Vaio laptop but more likely similar.Make sure you choose the similar feature if available and not use the restore to factory default as shown.

Hi everybody!
I apologise for opening once again the same threat but I have a doubt.
I have the original version of windows 7 professional cd and I am almost ready to format my acer aspire 4315, which is now running with xp, and install the windows 7.
However, it seems that the model I have is not compatible with 7.
In the acer website it has no drivers for the windows 7.
What shall I do?
You think that acer will provide drivers soon or that windows 7 include drivers or I shall not install 7

Answer:Acer Aspire 4315 Windows 7

You will be taking a risk. Do you have a backup drive?

If you could please fill in your system specs, we might be able to dig a little deeper for drivers for you.

Thanks,

So far,

Please help.....frustration level is high. Everything else works well and this laptop is quite fast...too bad that Acer doesn't seem to care. I sure won't buy another ACER product.

I can't find the driver for my model Acer. My laptop is the Aspire M5-583P, but when I check the list of available driver downloads, I don't see any for the Crystal Eye.

Answer:Re: Using Acer Crystal Eye Webcam

In this case, check if your Windows Update is set to automatic downloading and installing updates. If it is not set already, it is recommended to allow Windows to automatically download and install updates. Keeping Windows up-to-date can resolve most of the errors you may face with device drivers and other areas. To know more about this, the following link can be helpful:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/windows-update-faq You can also try the following steps if the above option does not work:1. Right-click 'Start' and go to 'Device Manager'.2. Check if your webcam is listed under the list of devices.3. If yes, then click on it and go to 'Drivers' tab.4. Check if you are able to update the drivers from here.5. If the drivers are not able to update from here too, you can consider using the option of 'Roll Back Driver'.If the issue still persists, you are advised to contact Acer through the following link for further assistance:http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/contacts Hope this will help you.

Yet can not be turned on and the turned on settings can not still turn on the camera. LINE and Skype says "camera canot turn-on". The ridiculus part is, acer driver support does not even support the camera hardware. I cant find a webcam in their driver list downloads.

There should be a driver listed under the imaging devices section of the Device Manager. Try removing the driver and restarting to let the operating system reload it.

I have an Acer Aspire 7551G-7606 and recently had to replace my HDD and used one from my old HP laptop (it had the same version of Windows 7 Home 64x and I registered it with the Acer's serial). When I went to Acer's site to download the drivers I needed, the webcam software that originally came with the computer gave me an error upon the install setup saying that it couldn't recognize/find the webcam and asked me to plug it in. It's kind of perplexing since the webcam is physically built into the laptop. Is there some reason why replacing the harddrive would make the software unable to find the webcam and is there a way to fix it so I can actually reinstall it? Thanks.

Edit: The webcam does show up in the DM as "1.3mp HD Webcam" and it says that the driver is up to date and that it's functioning properly.

It has a Crystal Eye made guy Acer built in but I've come across an issue.

It seem that when i record a video the sound isn't sync'd up and it also seems he video is playing faster then it should be.

I've tested it a few times and noticed that the sound wouldn't start at the same time as the video playback but then the motion in the video was actually faster then it should be.

Anyone got any ideas?

I bought this netbook new early 2013 with Win8 ([edited to comply with guidelines]). I did a complete Win8 backup, then did a clean install ol Win7x64 Home from disk. It's been a handy netbook, but the Crystal Eye webcam never worked in Win7 using drivers & patches from the Acer support site. Recently, I wanted the webcam working again, so I decided to restore Win8 from the old backup, everything seemed to recover fine, except the webcam still didn't work. Then I tried reinstalling Win7x64 Home again, everything fine again but the webcam. Then I experimentally tried clean reinstalling Win7x86 Home (32-bit), wondering if the 64-bit OS was somehow the problem - the webcam still doesn't work.
 
It reliably works for a few seconds, then reliably stops working, period. What is happening?
 
Typically, when I open the Crystal Eye webcam app, the webcam initially works fine for about 3-5 seconds, it then goes blank, a message usually appears "The connection to your webcam was lost". This is usually accompanied by messages in the system tray "This device can operate faster", implying I should connect it to a different USB bus to improve it's performance (this is of course impossible to do with an internal, innaccessible device like the webcam).

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 150-1570, and have been very happy with it ...until today.

The PC comes with a built-in webcam, Acer's "Crystal Webcam". Haven't had any problems with it.

I'm running Windows XP Home and recently did a windows update.

Today, however, when I went to use it, I immediately got a "Blue Screen of Death" from Windows, with the following Stop error:

0x0000007E
0xC0000005

snp2uvc.sys - Address: EC11A90B base at EC111000 Datestamp 47009ae

This is one of the driver files for the crystal webcam
dated 5/16/08 v5.8.33.1

Thinking that this was a driver problem, I uninstalled the device and reinstalled the latest version of the driver which I downloaded from the ACER website. That didn't cure the problem. I then tried to restore the driver back to the original driver version that came with the PC when I bought it - same result. So, now I'm kind of stumped.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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.

Hello,  I used the eRecovery application to "Restore to Factory Defaults" on an Aspire 4315.. However, upon rebooting, I was taken to a welcome screen that asks for the credentials for an "Other User" account. I tried a variety of User Names/Passwords, but with no success. What are my options? Ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello everybody, After the last update, it seems that my HD Webcam does not work anymore. I've tried to use it with several programmes including Skype and Windows Camera, but neither of them is able to start the camera. Is it possible to download new drivers for this hardware? Where can I find them?? Thank you for paying attention and answering (my laptop model is "Acer Aspire E1-522")

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.

I got an old acer mini laptop form my mother while im waiting for my main laptop to be fixed and shipped but the laptop has a webcam but it doesn't work and the computer won't recognize it. I thought it was because there was no software for it but when i downloaded software the software won't open claiming there is no camera detectable. I tried using face book to see if it would pick up and where you set the flash settings it recognizes there is one there but it won't show up when okay is pressed. it operates on windows xp. any ideas whats up with it?

We show this model actually shipped with Linux. Unfortunately the webcam driver is not available as a separate device driver as it is built in to the OEM version of Windows 10, on models that ship with it from factory. Perhaps other users here have a suggestion you can use, to get the camera functioning.

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'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 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

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your webcam.
 

Where did you download the Acer Crystal Eye webcam application from, the Windows store?
Was there an issue with the camera application that was already installed?
I don't see any drivers listed for the webcam on our site, so I believe that the drivers are Microsoft drivers themselves designed for the installed webcam application.

Hello,

I am having a load of trouble with my webcam. I'm running on Win7 64 bit.
My laptop is a Acer Aspire 8930G. (specs are easy to find)
I have already tried to search for the drivers on the acer website. But they do not have anything that supports Windows 7. Also I can't find any drivers on the internet that actually fix my problem. I tried 64 bit vista drivers. without succes.

The webcam works perfect when I open the Crystal eye webcam program. As soon as I want to start the webcam in MSN Messenger or Skype, the webcam works. Untill connection has been made with the other contact. Then the cam just shuts down.

Also sometimes and really SOMETIMES. after trying to start the webcam like 50 times, it finally works. But this doesn't always work.

I posted this in drivers section because ( as far as I can see) it's a driver problem. The laptop is brand new, So that cant be the problem. And other webcams wont work on it too.
A friend of mine asked me if I could test his webcam for him. But it gave me the exact same problems as this one build in does.

Answer:Crystal Eye Webcam not working

Try going to...control panel...hardware and sound...under devices and printers enter device manager...when device manager loads select the "imaging devices" and enter...there is a tab that will tell you whether it is working correctly or not...there are options to update the driver in the driver tab.

I'm trying to get the webcam working.  I haven't used it in probably over a year, and now I can't seem to get it to work.  I've read lots of posts about downloading a new driver but I've tried several different ones and none work.  I have an Aspire 5517.  When I go into the device manager it says the webcam is working....but it isn't.  Any thoughts?

Answer:crystal webcam not working

Try uninstalling the driver in device manager, then downloading and installing the webcam driver from Acer's website. You can use http://global-download.acer.com/SupportFiles/Files/HWID/APP/HWVendorDetection.exe to determine the manufacturer of the camera to know what driver to install.  Also, have you tried downloading skype or something like that to see if the camera works with it?

Hello,

I have an Acer Extensa 5420 computer and the operating system installed is Vista.

I'm having trouble with the Crystal Eye's picture-taking. I turn it on (works just fine) but when I click the "take picture" button, it briefly shows up in the gallery bar underneath and disappears. I can't for the life of me figure out where it is sending them or why they are not staying in the gallery below the pictures like they used to. I can't find any way to adjust or figure out where they are being sent to.

Thanks for any help ,
Sasha
 

Answer:Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam for a Acer Extensa 5420

On my Acer, the webcam pics are saved to the Pictures folder in my user account folder.

If they aren't there, I suggest you try re-installing the webcam driver. You can download it from Acer's website. Select the appropriate website for your country here: http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/

I had to have a recovery of my hybrid because of viruses and although most of my files and apps were there afterwards, Acer Crystal Eye wasn't, although it was originally on the hybrid. How do I get it back please as it's very good definition, much better than the camera on Windows 8.

Hello,

I don't know why my built in acer crystal web cam doesn't work anymore. I check the device manager and the application and I can't find it. Is there a way that I can put it back or download it from the net?

Answer:Acer Crystal Eye web cam

Hi, jojoa73, and welcome to the forums.

If the camera is not showing up in device manager, then you'll need to figure out *why* it is not showing up there as a device.

To start off with, what have you done recently to your computer? Have you recently recovered from an infection on the computer? Have you changed settings on the computer? What OS are you running? Is every thing up to date (in terms of drivers and software updates)?
