Windows 7: Problems with webcam Crystal eye

Problems with webcam Crystal eye

Hello,

I am having a load of trouble with my webcam. I'm running on Win7 64 bit.
My laptop is a Acer Aspire 8930G. (specs are easy to find)
I have already tried to search for the drivers on the acer website. But they do not have anything that supports Windows 7. Also I can't find any drivers on the internet that actually fix my problem. I tried 64 bit vista drivers. without succes.

The webcam works perfect when I open the Crystal eye webcam program. As soon as I want to start the webcam in MSN Messenger or Skype, the webcam works. Untill connection has been made with the other contact. Then the cam just shuts down.

Also sometimes and really SOMETIMES. after trying to start the webcam like 50 times, it finally works. But this doesn't always work.

I posted this in drivers section because ( as far as I can see) it's a driver problem. The laptop is brand new, So that cant be the problem. And other webcams wont work on it too.
A friend of mine asked me if I could test his webcam for him. But it gave me the exact same problems as this one build in does.

My System:
Sorry for the Dutch language.


Please help

Hey skunkie

When you installed the vista drivers did you install them in compatibility mode? I just finished installing win 7 (7600) on an acer with webcam and thats exactly what I had to do.
