    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.

    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.
