Preferred Solution: My acer aspire 5745 crystal eye webcam is not work...

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?

Have owned Aspire V5-531 for 5+ years.  The crystal cam worked great for a year or so, but has since given much grief.  I believe there is a short-circuit on the top right edge of the monitor.  If I pinch the two halves of the monitor "lid" together, sometimes I can get the crystal eye cam to work but often not.  I was told by a tech guy (works for large hospital as their IT guy) that this is common- and there is no fix.   Is this true? The only option I can see possible is to buy an external cam and use that.  How terrible I cannot Skype with family and friends with this great laptop!   At this point, I can no longer use the webcam.  It is toast.   Please advise. Thanks.McLean

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.

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.

I've managed to fiddle around and get it to work only to have unistall again.  Is this camera not supported any longer? or what can I do to keep this from happening going forward? Regards, Matt Lucking

Mluck1ng,
 
It sounds like there might be some driver issues with the camera. Have you tried a system restore to when it was working, it could just be an update that made it start having problems.
 
I know that this is probably not what you want to hear, but we have also had success with customers uninstalling drivers for hardware (webcam in this case) and then upgrading to Windows 8.x. It installs that Microsoft drivers for the device, if possible, and that usually works.

Um, hi there. I got a new laptop a few months ago, and it was running very slow, so I tried doing a system restore.

After the system restore, my computer would completely lock up seconds after I logged in. The screen would freeze, and the mouse and keyboard wouldn't work. I've tried putting it back to factory settings, but it kept doing it. But, everything runs perfectly fine when I am in Safe Mode.

I was wondering if any of you could help me out.

Thank you in advance if you can!

And if you need any more information, please tell me! I really need help!

Answer:Acer Aspire 5745 laptop freezing on startup.

Hi mike41,

I would advise you to boot into safemode and turn of all the autostart items (Start > Search "msconfig" > Hit enter > Startup tab). Disable all that aren't windows services so that you'll have a clean start. It might be one of these processes that gets stuck during the startup.

Also when it freezes, could you attach an external keyboard and see if that responds? If so, try killing Explorer.exe and starting it again (From the task manager).

Hello everyone! I am pulling my hair out right now! We have an Acer Aspire 5745 Notebook that my mom originally bought a few years ago because she started taking some college classes. Windows 7 Home Prem OA Acer Group was pre-installed to the laptop and the crappy thing is the activation code on the sticker beneath the laptop has rubbed off!

So last week when I went to shut down the laptop, Windows needed to install some updates. It does this every now and then and the number of updates is never the same. Sometimes it's just 1, sometimes it's 8; this time 14 updates were installed. The next day when I went to turn on the system, it wouldn't go to the login screen. It would flash the Acer logo again and go to a black screen that said Windows was unable to start and it gave me options of Startup Repair, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Start Windows Normally, etc. I would choose Startup Repair and do a restore to earlier time point and that would work and after that completed I could access the login screen. This happened again after the 14 updates needed to be reinstalled. Finally after doing a different system restore, which failed and had an error, it would let me once again access the login screen but this time the Netgear router had "limited access" and wouldn't connect to the Internet.

So most recently, I went to the Acer eRecovery Management and did a restore that would restore the system to factory con... Read more

I approached this question a while ago and thought I'd circle back around from a slightly different angle. I understand most laptops will boot/run with only the AC adapter plugged in (battery pack removed). Will an Aspire 5745 operate this way? Also, what happens when the battery pack starts to die (mine shows 100% recharge but doesn't last very long)? Will the laptop still boot/run on an AC adapter if the battery pack is at the end of life? Thanks in advance.....cheers....

Answer:Acer Aspire 5745 booting/running on power adapter ...

Sorry so long to get back to this...... Been thru 2 replacement M/Bs and this is the best of what I understand to date - Installed and ran the 1st replacement M/B and it seemed to do just fine...until I plugged in the battery pack. Then it showed same problems as the original. Unplugged the batttery pack, but the problem never went away (erratic boot ups), just like the original M/B. Got a 2nd replacement board, installed and booted. Worked fine. However, I never reconnected the battery pack and just continued to test with AC/DC adapter only. No problems. Consistent boot ups, good performance (for an older machine  My best guess it that the battery pack was the problem , however, not in the way I would have expected. Seems either something in communications (over the serial bus) between the battery pack and the M/B caused the M/B to become "glitchy" at start up (that resetting the BIOS to default wouldn't fix) or there's a h/w problem on the battery pack control/management board that caused a h/w problem on the M/B to screw up the boot up process permanently (so money spent on the M/B was prob'ly not a waste...yayyy!). I still ahve to fix the battery pack problem (maybe I'll see if I can figure how to create/use some kind of external battery pack like an AC/DC Adapter), but it looks like I've got my laptop back and functioning. Thanks for the help and input....Cheers.....

Answer:[SOLVED] Acer Aspire 5745 booting/running on power...

>>>>And therein may lie an unforeseen electrochemical issue<<<< Sorry, not sure what you mean. What I meant was that the laptop would always see power coming from through AC/DC adapter power plug (battery pack would go thru here as well). It would never try to charge any batteries nor would it ever try to run from battery since there would be no battery inserted into the battery socket of the laptop. For charging the DIY battery pack, that would be either internally managed (if I bought a more universal battery pack), or I would use separate batteries (18650?) that could be removed and charged separately when needed. I suppose I could also use NiMH, tho the power density mgiht not be as good as LiIon.

Hello all , i am totally new here , i am having trouble finding information on the ability to make copies of the recovery disks [made on purchase] [3 of them + 1 for applications and drivers] .
My question is , is it possible to make copies [and if yes , then how?] of the above mentioned "factory recovery disks" ?
I have been using my acer aspire x64 bit laptop for two years now , and the operating system [windows 7 home basic x64 but crashes every month - but that is a problem/question for another thread/time]
for now i would like to know if i can simply make functional and bootable dvd copies that are identical to my current [in use and functional] 3 + 1 factory recovery disks ? As i am afraid that one day one or all of these disks will have scratches and will ultimately become corrupt , rendering them useless. Subsequently making my machine non-recoverable.
Note: I have already used the disks , successfully , about 25 times to revive from crashes. My hard drive and other components seem fine.
Just need to know if it is possible to make copies of these recovery disks [i would love to make atleast 1o sets of them -for complete peace of mind]
i am sorry for such a long and detailed post for a fairly simple question , to which i still donot know the answer to.
I would be much obliged to get as many answers from all you good and informed members. I appreciate you taking the time to read my concerns. Thanking you all, very respectfully, in advance.

Answer:making copies of acer aspire 5745 Factory Recovery Disks.

Why not?? These are like other DVDs which contain nothing else than data!!! You can use nero for this purpose.
I think you are confused with the notification to "keep disk carefully". This is because the software that lets you make disk is one time use only, i.e., either you successfully make it once or never EVER.

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.

I've only just got my new laptop and I thought i'd test out the webcam on it.

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 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.

Hi,

I bought an Acer Aspire 5536 laptop just under a year ago, ive only just wanted to use webcam and noticed that it continuously freezes.
The problem isnt just on msn, but when i open up Crystal Eye Webcam from the Start button, it doesnt work in there either. Taking a picture is fine, but as soon as i start the video it freezes after a couple of seconds.

ive tried to update the driver, but it says that i have the best driver.
I'd really appreciate if you can help..

Thanks

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'm suddenly offered a LIVE UPDATE from Cyberlink, do I want to download it YES or NO. If I select NO, nothing happens, the webcam doesn't work. If I select YES, a file download of an update for the Cyberlink Crystal Eye begi... Read more

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
0xEC171B86
OxEBFCF9FC
0xEBFCF6F8

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.

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.

When I push the start button the lights come on the fan blows and thats all. I found a few sits on line giving me the procedure to flash an aspire one system. Here is the steps I took to do so to no avail. 1. When to the acer site and put the SNID number to my laptop to pull up my suggested downloads for my system. 2. I downloaded the file to my working computer. 3. I extracted the file and opened the file that said DOS. 4. I renamed the file zg5ia32.fd 5. checked my flash drive to make sure it is set to ( FAT ). 6. Transfered the file to the flash drive. 7. Pluged in the flash drive to my dead laptop while it was pluged into a powersorce. 8. Held down the FN and ESC buttons while pushing the power buttons. 9. Released the FN and ESC buttons when I noticed the power light blinking and the flash drive light up. 10. Waited for over 15 min.  but had no success. If anyone could tell me what I may have done wrong I would be much appriciated.  I also opened up the backside to the laptop and removed the little battery that was plugged it with a small white connector assuming it was the cmos battery but still nothing happended.

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.

Hi all.... Hope someone can help. Been trying to solve for quite some time  My Aspire 5745 laptop developed odd behavior (maybe not so odd if I knew what was going on). Here are the situations I've "tested": 1. Laptop boots fine (and runs great!) with only the battery installed (adapter unplugged).2. If the adapter is plugged in (battery or no battery) it won't boot (at first, anyway...see No. 4A below) and the fan seems to come on at full speed as if the CPU has heated up for some reason.3. Boot on battery and then plug in the adapter immediately, the computer freezes (and a reboot is needed).4. Boot on battery and plug in the adapter *after* computer has been on for some time (5 or 15 mins.?) I can plug in the adapter and the computer works fine. In fact, if I shut down the computer and then turn it back on (w/adapter plugged in and battery installed) it boots fine (most of the time).4A. Referring to Nos. 2 & 3 above...If I repeat No. 2, over time the laptop gets further and further into booting Windows (running Win 10) until it finally completely boots and runs great until I shut it down (it reboots fine, as well). What I've checked/done:1. Original adpater that came with laptop appears to output rated voltage even under load (when computer is running).2. I've tried other adapters (of unknown quality...tho a couple were for HP laptops, and all were checked for output voltage) in case it was a noise issue.

It could be hardware issue with the battery, kpratapsreddy Check if the BIOS updates fixes the issue. I do see few updates for Power related issue.So that may help here is the link to help you find the BIOS updates. http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers Since the unit has a removable battery you could try changing the battery and check if the issue persists. --------------------------------------------------?--------------------------------------------------?----------------------------- Remember to mark "Accept as Solution",If I was helpful and the post solved your problem.

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.

Hmmm  seems that the Aspire 5315 is regarded as obsolete?  can't see why, mine is running win 10 except that it wont recognise the webcam!  Can anyone help with that problem please ? 

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.

Answer:acer aspire E71-571 series webcam stopped working

You must disable "Change TPM (TCM) State" in BIOS. (BIOS -> Security tab)First, add a supervisor password, so that function will be available.Save BIOS settings and restart the computer.That's how I managed to fix it.

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

laga-luga,
 
We do not have any drivers listed for the camera itself, which means that it is going to use default Microsoft drivers. What happens when you open an application that requires the camera, such as Skype, Google Hangouts, etc?
