Acer Z3605 how to change angle of Crystal Eye Came...

Question: Acer Z3605 how to change angle of Crystal Eye Came...

I have just successfully upgraded to Windows 10 but now the Crystal Eye Camera is only showing the top half of my head. I have tried changing the aspect ratio but it is still the same. Is there any way one can change the angle without tipping the screen forward which is impracticable. Hoping someone out there has some suggestions.

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.)

Answer: Acer Z3605 how to change angle of Crystal Eye Came...

Haze,

Since you did not physically adjust the camera it sounds like a driver issue. I would suggest removing the drivers and letting them get installed again to see if that resolves it.

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, I hope someone can help, the crystal eye webcam on my Acer 6930g has stopped working, I dont know what I have done, it was working fine. Now when I try to start it up a box appeers saying:

Acer crystal eye webcam.EXE - unable to locate component
Thisapplication has failed to start because Image.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I have tried re-installing application but still keeps coming up with same box.

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.

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/

Answer:Acer Crystal Eye

I think Acer Crystal Eye is only usable for taking pictures and videos and saving them in your pictures file.For streaming videos (incoming), however, it will depend on the app being used to open your webcam.

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)?

I have reloaded a dozen times and no matter what I do the app eventually crashes. I have seen it discussed on other forums and nobody seems to have a grasp on this one. I am running Vista Home Pro on an
Acer extensa 4420 w/dual athlon 1.9 processors, 2 gigs of ram and an

So far,
wrong ffdshow codec, no "EYE"
too many USB connections, no "eye" (keyboard, mouse, and external HD)
Acer's original install driver and app "no eye"
Acer's updated driver and app "no Eye"

Does anybody have a clue about this?

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.

Ok so I googled around and such, nothing but people asking about it and no help. Ok so it does work, on stuff like msn. Now normally on xp it showed the camera in my computer. It does not. The last time I had w7 on this it was rc2 and bsod'd. Seems fine now, but still the cam problem. Is there anything I can do? Maybe a program that can take it over? Really looking for drivers for w7 for it. The model of laptop should not matter as my moms emachines and my Acer aspire ONE both have the same acer crystal eye cam and the same drivers worked, doesn't show for either of us. Drivers for mine only exist for XP but worked fine. Hers have vista but still not showing in my computer.

Again it does work on msn so its not as if its not working period.

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.

Noob here. So it seems that the built-in webcam on my acer extensa 5230e doesn't like windows 7 drivers. (apparently a long history here)

My particular problem is that the camera shows up in device manager and reads as working normally. However there is no program/application I have used that will allow me to use the webcam. I keep getting messages of 'no camera found' or 'plug in camera'.

I just want to know if this is a driver or hardware issue? I have no idea which brand the camera is (chicony or suyin). I purchased the machine used. It was returned to factory condition when I purchased it. Windows is 100% up to date, drivers and all.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have just bought an acer aspire 8920 with a built in crystal eye web cam. It originally had vista premium on it but as it was bought in Spain it was in spanish so I upgraded to vista ultimate to get it into english. Everything is working fine except my webcam.

I used to be able to use the ´camera controls´in the control panel of the webcam but now these controls are all greyed out and the picture is very grainy.

I have re-intalled all the lastest drivers and software I can find and still nothing works. I have restored all the system using the eRecovery system and checked it whilst it was still in the spanish vista premium state and still it didn´t work properly.
Can anyone help in restoring this back to its original condition.

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 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 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.

I have Aspire 5750 Laptop. Its running fine on windows 8.1 but there is some issue with Webcam ..The web cam runs but all the settings are disabled so the images are not clear.

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 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 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.

Hello, my new Acer Aspire Notebook has my IE homepage stuck to global.acer.com and I can't change it through any of the IE options (Use Blank, Use Current, or typing it in manually - I'm trying to set it to Google).

I was able to change the "Default_Page_URL" value to "Google.com" under "HKEY_ LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" and the "Start Page" value in there was already set to "http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd={SUB_PRD}&clcid={SUB_CLSID}&pver={SUB_PVER}&ar=home"

Question: Right Angle Molex?

Is there such a thing as a right angle molex power connector? I have been looking for one that lies nearly flat against what it plugs in to, but can't find one.

I have a home theater case and an add-in USB 3.0 card, but it requires a molex power connection. Problem is, the lid of the case sits close to the top of the card, so a standard molex connector won't allow the lid to be put on the case.

Question: right angle sata

my 5770 gpu covers 2 out of 4 of my sata ports.(1 for current hdd(first port), 1 for cd(second one), and 1 for (maybe) caviar black hard drive(3rd or 4th port which are blocked by gpu).

will a right angle sata cable be able to fit on my mobo and not interfere with the gpu?
 

Answer:right angle sata

You need to tell us which mobo you have. Without knowing how the SATA ports are arranged, cannot say. Some come straight up from the mobo, others are right angled.

At the least, a photo of the situation will help. Considering the cost of the cable, might be worth getting one and seeing how it goes.

General question. My PC tower looks naff and untidy with 2 USB cables stuck out the front (why do manufacturers put sockets there?). I know its possible to buy for mains,TV antenna and other apparatus, right angled connectors which go a long way towards tidying leads IE out and down or out and right or left. Does anyone know if such a thing exists for USB connections?

Answer:Right angle USB adaptor!

front usb ports are there for temp use, such as plug in usb memory stick etc. They are not meant for fixed connection. It is unfair to blame manufacturs if you run out ports on the back. You can easily add another PCI card for giving you more usb port on the back. You can get a five ports usb adaptor card for £7 click here

I have a Dell Inspiron 5567.  A previous Inspiron I owned had a wider connector for the power adapter.  This on has a narrower connector.  I just want to buy a right angle elbow so that the cable lies toward the back of the laptop not out to the side.  It's very hard to tell if what I want is online or make sense of the measurements.  It's just a wide angle joint.  Doesn't anyone know where I could find this?
I contacted Dell.  After a week they emailed me back to call their 800 number about accessories.  After first being cut off, someone answered and directed me to a part number that turned out to be a $60 right angle adapter.  This is what should have been the one included with my laptop.  The part I want should be about $6.  If Dell doesn't make this, where can I get it?

So, my mouse pointers still don't work, and I'm beginning to suspect that it has something to do with the registry.

Yes, yes, when the inexperienced and foolhardy play in the registry, bad things can happen, I know, but it doesn't keep me from fireworks, and it surely doesn't keep me from the registry.

But now I think that I may have broken it, specifically in the realm of mouse cursors.

Here's some back story: I made some mouse cursors from scratch using a program that does that sort of thing, packaged them up, and installed them onto my computer, using the standard method. I guess I came to a rough patch, because I ended up messing around with regedit, and now I have some strange behaviors occuring with the cursors, especially on boot ( See here for the video. Ignore the background noise, I recorded this during an environmental science class).
As you can see, when the computer boots up, it gives me good ol' Windows Aero, but when I open up Mouse Pointers, it already has my theme selected, leaving me only to click 'ok', which is pretty much a major hassle.

The interesting bit is that I emailed the same set of cursors to a buddy who (unless I am mistaken) was also running Vista, and he had no problems with it, still doesn't, which of course, drives me nuts.

So, I'm pretty sure that I broke something, and I was wondering how I should go about fixing it, if there is an easy way. (System Restore really won't work, as this problem has been around for months on end... Read more

I'm in the market for a home projector but ran into a problem. Due to space, I can't mount the projector directly in front of where the screen would go but it would have to be to the side, about a 20-30 degree angle. Are there projectors that can do this? If so, what is the feature called. Anytime I look for angle, it only shows me vertical adjustments, not horizontal.

This happens no matter how I'm creating the video - video screen capture or using an app to render some video or editing some video with HandBrake. When I play the video in VLC or some other player it will be at a slight angle. This issue has been happening ever since I got this laptop about 2 yrs ago.

Hello All,

I calculated the angles between the skeleton joints in which the angle is calculated based on the parent bone as shown in the attached images, the problem is that the angle is calculated without a sign determining its direction whether its upwards "+ve" or "-ve" downwards, and I need to detect this or put a sign for example +ve if upwards and -ve if downwards,
As shown in the attached pics the first pic shows the angle = 4, then if i moved upwards the angle will be 45 and if i moved downwards the angle will be 48 not -48, all what i need to know is how to differentiate and the direction of movement in which the angle will be +angle if upwards and -ve angle if downwards.

Hi Guys,

I am considering purchasing a Satellite L50t-A-145 but I really need the display lid/screen to open to 135?. The reason for this, I am a DJ and have a laptop shelf at 45?, so with the laptop on that I need the screen to go to 90?, plus another 45? to take the screen to the vertical.

Can anyone of you let me know what sort of angle the L50's open to? Nowadays it is difficult to get any laptop to go past 120? due to the modern hinge design, real pain for anyone that wants to open more.

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite L50t-A-145 - what angle does the lid open?

I have two Toshiba notebooks and on both of them I can open the lid up to 120-130?. Not more than that. Notebooks are designed for work on the desk and ?normal? conditions so it is difficult to find model that can be optimal for your work.
On the market you can find laptops that can be used as tablets. Maybe you should buy something like Satellite U920T.

Hi - I think I have a hardware problem with my T400. Normally, when the computer is sleeping, I open the lid and it comes alive. Now, I can only open the lid to about 70 degrees for this to happen. If I open the lid more than this, ie lid vertical or leaning back, as I normally would, the screen goes black and the system goes into standby. The only light remaining is next to the right rear USB socket. When I close the lid to 70 degrees or less, the system restarts itself, as it normally does when coming from Sleep. It means the computer can only be used when the lid is 70 degrees or less from closed, which is really difficult!! To boot the computer from off, the lid must be only opened 70 degrees or less. Its as if the 'device' that knows how far the lid is open, whatever that device is, has slipped or lost its reference point, somehow. I do not know how this happened, one minute all was Ok, and the next time I woke it from sleep, it was like this. Please any comments as to how to fix this will be very welcome. THANKS IN ADVANCE  - Tim (desperate!)

Answer:T400 lid angle is shutting down system

There is only on-off. The switch uses a magnet in the keyboard bezel to trip a switch. My guess is a bad cable.
