    Hey... I tried what you posted up and everything seemed to be going fine, until I directed my webcam to the driver. at the end of the installation it said "device cannot start," and i got a yellow exclamation mark by my webcam, which is now assigned to the acer driver. can you help?? thanks a lot i really appreciate it

    are you sure you have a chicony webcam?

    Rollback to your previous one if the Acer drivers dont work. You can also use the Windows Generic Drivers which is > USB Camera 2.0

    Installing the drivers is all you should have to do. If that didn't work, then maybe try the Acer drivers.

I'm very interested to hear what success others have with this (if any). Man, it's so nice to actually be able to USE my webcam now.

    Want to know what worked for me? Acer drivers.

    I found this driver: Acer Extensa 5210 Chicony Webcam Driver 5.7

    (I have also mirrored the file here.)


    Here are the exact steps I took.

    1. Downloaded the file.
    2. Unzipped it to a folder on my desktop.
    3. Ran the "Setup.exe" file in the folder that got unzipped.
    4. Went through the installer until it got to the end and then let it restart my computer.
    5. Waited for my computer to restart.
    6. It popped up something saying it was installing the drivers for my webcam. Waited until it was done.
    7. Opened the Control Panel.
    8. Opened the Device Manager.
    9. Find my webcam under "Imaging Devices". I noticed it was listed as "HP Pavilion Webcam" despite having just installed the Acer drivers.
    10. Right-clicked on my webcam and chose "Update Driver Software..."
    11. Chose "Browse my computer for driver software"
    12. Chose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
    13. Unchecked the "Show compatible hardware" checkbox.
    14. Scrolled down to the Chicony manufacturer.
    15. Chose the "Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
    16. Told it to install anyway when it asked me a question about installing that driver.
    17. Waited for the driver to be installed.
    18. Noted that my webcam was now listed as an Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Device Manager.

    And that was it. It appears to work totally fine now! Again, I have my fingers crossed that it won't suddenly break again, but so far so good.

    Forgot to note: This is on a DV6000T running Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium.

    And here's proof:



    I took that with Dorgem, an excellent, free, open source webcam application.
    so I did all of those steps.. and then when I got to step 17 it said "windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it: Acer Crystal Eye webcam, The device cannot start (code 10)"

    Any suggestions? I am soooo desperate right now. :/

    I had the same problem as them. What do you mean rollback to your previous one? Sorry, I probably sound like an idiot.
