I've got problem with my webcam. She worked well when I had got linux Fedora 9 and preinstalled MS Windows Vista. Later I changed Vista 32 bit on Vista 64 bit and I long didn't used the webcam. Later I updated my bios under MS Windows Vista x64 (to v1.19 earlier I had got v1.15). One day I wanted to make a foto with webcam but with no success because Suyin application say Camera not found. Webcam "Vendor ID" is 0c45 and "Product ID" is 63e0. These values indicate on Sonix Webcam but I'am sure that I've got Suyin Webcam and that before I had corect Vendor ID and Product ID for Suyin Webcam. I want to add that i have tried to downgrade to older bios but it makes no difference. I want my Webcam back.
I would like to know where i can get windows XP drivers for Acer Aspire 5930G. I want to dual boot XP with the Vista that came preinstalled.
I have two partitions on factory setup: one for VISTA OS and the other is labelled as DATA. I thought of formatting the second partition and installing XP on it. Is this possible? Would a boot menu be created? Or is there any other sequence in which i should install this.
The Specification is as follows: Intel Core2Duo P8400 2.26 GHz 512 MB nVidia GeForce 9600M GT 4GB DDR2 250 GB HDD and the rest...
I own a 5930G for almost a year.It has an NVidia 9600M GT and it says "1080p full hd" on a sticker.
3 questions: Using Vlc media player,I have minor sound problems with 720p .mkv files.Particularly,every 3-4 seconds,the sound seems discontinuous for an instant.Is there something I can do about it?
How can I check if I have the latest graphics card drivers and if not,update them?
This and my former aspire acer model,can only burn a few brands of cd/dvds without error.Lots of common brands,like TDK,philips etc get a failure while burning always at the time that the burning process is beyond 80% complete.I start to think that this is a common problem for acer laptops.Can you suggest brands of cd's/dvd's that work well?in my former acer aspire model,"that's write" were the only ones that I could find that worked 100% of the time.And I had tried about 12 known brands.In my 5930g model,I haven't tried to test a lot of brands yet,but the "that's write" brand doesn't work any more.I have burned less than 10 cds and the problem occured right from the beginning.
my battery life is reduced to a mere 30 seconds.Is there a way to recalibrate it?can't seem to find it in the acer e-power management
I decided to restore my aspire 5930g laptop to factory defaults, and started out with creating the restoration discs. At this point, i wasn't really aware that one could restore from the harddrive.
So i booted up the discs and started the restoration process. But now, the dialog tells me to insert the third disc, while i only have two. What should i do? I could try to kill the restoration process and start over from the harddrive, but im afraid to harm the system.
I just reinstalled my Acer Aspire 5930G (844G32BN) with Vista Home Premium. Everything looks fine except the wireless connection. My computer cannot find any wireless networks (although my other notebook finds all 3 around me). It looks like as if the notebooks WiFi signal would not work.
Could anyone tell me what exact drivers the original installation have? I tried the Intel ProSet/Wireless drivers now. The WiFi led flashes, but cannot find any networks.With the original installation I had no problem regarding the WiFi.
This ones just a small problem. My webcam works fine, but it's missing on the menu and i can't locate it anywhere in my files so it's just a bit annoying if i want to make a video. It's not even in the manual (printed or computer version). It took three weeks before it appeared in the menu after I bought the laptop, but since I had to restore to factory default and god knows where it is, as i say it's only a minor problem, no location in services. and when i expand my Acer menus theres nothing there either.
i just have a problem with my crystal eye webcam i cannot use it in any yahoo messenger or windows live messenger i get the error keep saying , cannot connect its using it by other programs by i dont use it with any program what should i do >
I have a new OTB acer aspire 5520, and on initial booting everything worked sweetly but when i am trying to access my crystal eye cam on YM or any IM programs it says the webcam is not connected, Now I checked device manager and there is no webcam, so i installed the driver from the erecovery management tool I tried first the BISON driver and utility without success upon installation the program says the computer should display a "found new hardware" message, but nothing showed up. then when it restarted my machine and when i checked on device manager still no cam... next i uninstalled the BISON driver and installed the 2nd one (SUYIN) with the same results. I searched the support and download section of ACER online and tried a third driver the CHICONY and still the same results.. Finally i re installed my system to full factory default and re tried everything still the same problems...
I am using an Acer Aspire E1-531 with Windows 7 64 bit on it. So whenever i want to use my webcam it is not found by my laptop. I tried downloading multiple drivers but none of them work (no webcam detected). Another thing is that i dont have an "Imaging Devices" section in my device manager. I've recently formatted my laptop so maybe the driver was deleted or something... I hadn't used my webcam before so i don't know if it had worked back then.
I have an Aser Aspire 5610 - 2328. The model is 5610z. I have the same issue with my webcam and it is orbicam with logitech software. I also here the unplugging sound and also get BSOD's. My laptop is under warranty and it has been sent in to be checked. They could not find any issues also when I click the orbicam icon first try it shows it disconnected. I try again it works. They still claim its working and nothing they can do they have also seen what it doese when clicking on the icon and still claim its working.
Not sure if they really checked the connections I will look into it. It is under warranty thru Wal-Mart and was sent to a place called Cyber Test in Longwood Florida.
I bought an Acer Aspire 4720, installed Windows XP and Linux Ubuntu. On XP, I can see the webcam working as a USB device, but I don't have any software to make it "do" something other than showing my ugly face.
I need to record, shoot some still images, and being able to video chatting (i.e. msn messenger).
What software can I use? Do I need something else (driver)?
The webcam is working, but has no software to handle it.
I have an Acer Aspire 5735 with an inbuilt Crystal Eye Webcam, I have managed to set up and talk to a contact, but my contact can see me, but I cannot see them. What do I need to do to rectify this? Or is it my contacts problem.
I own laptop acer Aspire 5742 g model, snide. [edited for privacy], Serial Number.. 2 months ago I decided to reinstall my operating system win 7 ultimate 64 bit. After reinstalling and installing drivers, update drivers and BIOS update to version 1.30, everything worked ok for 5 days, then I found that I no longer can access the Acer Crystal Eye webcam in Webcam. When you start the application displays the message The camera is not available or is used by another application ...
I reinstalled windows and I took it from the beginning. The pleasant surprise was when the camera is no problem, but after 4-5 days the same problem. Chamber refuses to start. Mention that in these 4-5 days was not installed on any laptop program. Only Google Chrome browser. There is currently installed antivirus unit. Windows Update is up to date, as well as driver update software.The same version of Windows I used it before resettlement and use it on another Acer laptop and I have no problem. In Device Manager installed camera appears. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled without success ...
I have tried searching both on my laptop and online but I cannot find out how to adjust the built-in webcam settings. My webcam/camera was excellent for a while, but suddenly both pics and video quality is really bad. How this happened and I cannot figure out where to adjust the settings.
this is my HD it was prepartitioned into these 4 Primary Partitions (i did resize C and extended the D partition) any way i know the 1st partition is the recovery but what about that last one?
now i wanna install windows 7 beta to try it out for real (I did try it in VM) so i want to dual boot it with the pre installed Vista Home premium SP1, the problem is i can't create any partitions bcuz i already have 4 primary partitions.
with Paragon Partition manager i can convert the D partition to Logical partition but will my data be safe ... i wanna be sure about that first.
I have a 5930g and I'm thinking of going from my Vista home premium to the Windows 7 beta, has anyone else tried it? I'm mostly thinking of issues with the media touch buttons, wireless, touchpad and the battery settings.
I recently bought an acer v3 371 and was looking forward to using the webcam. For the first few days it was fine quality but then suddenly, possibly after an update of some sort, the quality went down and now it looks really terrible. I tried many things such as refreshing the computer back to default settings, installing various camera programs (I was using the standard camera that came with windows 8.1) such as Acer Crystal Eye but changing the resolution in these makes no difference at all to the terrible quality.
I look in device manager and it just seems to be a generic device 'HD Webcam' and the driver is from 2006, this seems to be the default one that windows selects but there must be a better one, I can't find it anywhere though. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device several times but again no effect. I don't know exactly what the webcam is, because if you go to Acer's actual website to look for driver updates they list all of them EXCEPT the webcam drivers.
I'm trying to get the webcam working. I haven't used it in probably over a year, and now I can't seem to get it to work. I've read lots of posts about downloading a new driver but I've tried several different ones and none work. I have an Aspire 5517. When I go into the device manager it says the webcam is working....but it isn't.
I got myself the Acer Aspire 5930G this past Sunday. I can also mention that my friend bought the exact same computer just a couple hours before, from the same store here in Stockholm, Sweden.
The problem now is that the built in speakers make a fizzing, or I don't know exactly how to describe it, sound, when I play a song for example. The sound became more obvious when having a voiceconversation through Msn with a friend and playing musicvideos on youtube.
Now, my friend appeared to have the same problems with his speaker, just slightly less obvious. It bugged me enough to make a trip back to the store in order to set things straight. Listening to the Demoex at the store, the speakers were even worse, so I just had to accept the fact that "speakers on laptops generally suck"...
I still can't though, and I'd like to know how you experience your built-in speakers, are they "crystal clear" no matter how high of a volume you play (75% and up)?
I removed all of the unnecessary programs that Acer put in (they do make decent laptops but really overbload the OS with stupidities) and optimized Vista as much as I could (which is working nicely if i do say so myself ... but I'm still considering on going back to XP SP3 until Windows 7 comes out.).
Right ... I also played Mass Effect for a while on the laptop (maxed out at native res of 1280x800 works without a problem).
Now the only thing is, I'd like to reduce the temperatures of the laptop. The idle CPU temp is at about 52 degrees, while under load reaches about 72 degrees Celsius (which is pretty good considering the casing).
I will buy myself the ZALMAN ZM-NC2000B cooler ... but what I would also love to do is to undervolt both the CPU and the GPU.
I'm aware the RMClock is not exactly effective when it comes to P7350 cpu. I tried to undervolt it last night, and as much as I reduced the current going to the multipliers, the temperatures remained the same under stress for prolonged periods of time.
So ... until I find a way to undervolt the cpu and get myself the forementioned cooler, I'd like to undervolt the gpu (9600m GT GDDR3) If it's possible (and I know it is), I need to know of programs that can be used to acomplish this.
As much as I like my new laptop, it would be nice to further extend it's lifespan (even though it's brand new) and reduce the heat output.
I was also thinking on getting the thermal paste and applying it to cpu/gpu. Although I'm not sure I want to go ahead with it as I don't want to void the warranty.
how to overclock the cpu/gpu in question without significant gains in temps.
