Acer Crystal Eye Webcam will not work on Acer Aspire 5560

Q: Acer Crystal Eye Webcam will not work on Acer Aspire 5560

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.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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?

Thanks.

Alrighty, well, I have searched around for Broadcom's site and here a little bit. Those results from here seem to pull up the same version driver as I currently have installed. Also, the Broadcom how-to's on finding drivers are very confusing and based on that it shows I have a card that doesn't seem right... one that has bluetooth and much more. If I do have all that, it'd be awesome to be able to use. As a last resort, which I HATE doing as a rule of thumb used DriverBooster which when I use theirs it seems to cause more connectivity issues so I keep rolling back to the previous version. I feel it is highly unlikely to NOT have a driver update on this hardware since 2011; however, I am not able to seem to find one using Broadcom's site that is straight forward nor find one that doesn't seem to create issues in speed. So, is there a new driver for this card?PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4358&SUBSYS_E040105B&REV_00I know on Broadcom's site that the DEV_4358 means it would be BCM4358 and the service option shows BCM43XX; I am just seeming to find it difficult to find BCM4358 via their site. Lots of Broadcom BCM43** but nothing under 4358 nor 43xx, I am not sure that just ANY 43xx driver will work? I find this: https://www.broadcom.com/products/wireless-connectivity/wireless-lan/bcm4358 And that's about it.

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.

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 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.

Hi all,

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 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 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.

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 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.

Hi everyone,
please help me out with this issue, i've been searching all over the internet for 6 hrs so far and still unable to solve it.
I've bought my acer 5560 notebook for a week and it's been running normal until this morning when the screen froze at the acer logo after pressing the power button. I switched it off then on again and this time i went as far as the win 7 logo with the 'windows is starting' status, then turned to black screen, while the machine is still running.
I tried to start in safemode but it turned to the "blue screen of death". I restart again, press f8, then 'repair your computer', then restore it to an earliest point of time, which is when i bought it. After the process completed, windows restart then went black again after the 'windows is starting' status like before.
I also tried 'repair windows start-up' but still didn't work. I've restarted many times but the black screen issue always happens (either at the acer logo or after 'windows is starting')
I've seen people flash their BIOS on their Acer Aspire One but doesn't seem that it'll work on my model.
I would very much appreciate any help as I need the laptop urgently and can't wait for the tech support because they won't open in another 10 hrs.
Thanks in advance!

Hey guys.
I downloaded Diablo 3 from the site the other day and my laptop has been absolutely self-destructing since. I have 6 gb of DDR3 on the machine, and still 500 gb of free HD space.

A week has passed since that day. I have gotten 4 BSOD's since then, each one different.
Absolutely everything is lagging and according to a free trial of a PC boosting program it found 689 different errors related to system integrity alone.

I am EXTREMELY kind with my computer. Weekly defrags and virus scans, monthly CCleaner, and essentially every kind of maintenance I could run on it.

I am clueless.

Also on another note I was wondering if there was any possibility of installing MORE RAM, just out of curiosity. It never used to be slow until after I downloaded Diablo, and I have uninstalled it since, hoping it would clear up.

I would really really appreciate help...… I don't want to take her in.... she's all I have.

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 ? 

A:acer aspire 5315 webcam not working in windows 10

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

So, I have an Acer Aspire 5750(Not a z or g, just 5750) and it runs Windows 7. About this time last year my webcam stopped working suddenly. Nothing to my knowledge happened to make it stop, I just came home one day and it wouldn't work.

I'm having a hard time finding a driver to install for it, since the Acer website doesn't seem to have one, I uninstalled the driver using device manager and restarted my computer for it to reinstall and that didn't fix the problem. I also used eRecovery and that didn't seem to work either.

I've tried reinstalled the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam program, and when I open it gives me this message:
"Warning
Acer Crystal Eye Webcam cannot connect to your webcam (1.3M HD WebCam). Try selecting another capture device within settings, or close any applications that may be using this webcam and then restart Acer Crystal Eye Webcam."

Another odd problem is that even the USB webcam's will not work with it, so I'm not entirely sure that the driver is the problem. I've done my fair share of research on this problem and cannot come up with a solution. It says the same warning message when I try to connect the Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 that I have to the Acer Crystal Eye Webcam program. I think it recognizes them, but just won't connect to them for some reason.

I assure you, it is not the program, because I have tried Skype, Cameroid, the LifeCam program that the USB webcam came with, and much more... Read more

I'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?

A: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.

A: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.

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

I've downloaded the latest version of Skype and wish to use my built-in webcam. I'm being told when I attempt to use Skype that there is a problem with my video device. I thought I'd downloaded and installed the correct drivers after I recently reformatted my system's HDD, but still the message appears.

Going to the ACER website for driver support is inconclusive because there are several versions of different manufacturers' webcam drivers -- for both a Suyin model and a Chicony model. Results differ in two of the different utilities that I've run for detection of the correct manufacturer...one utility identified Chicony, one did not

Can someone please help me solve this mystery so I can finally get to camming again on Skype?

Thank you.
