So, that's why it doesn't work...since you reinstall, the software Acer Crystal Eye got wiped. Now, is left in device manager the HD Video WebCam.

We just have to find the right one brand!!

Have you ran Windows Updates yet?

Are there any webcam drivers listed in the "optional" updates section?

The prob he might got, is, it is no acer driver, but Windows 7 drivers...only the "Acer Crystal Eye" Software could start/launch the WebCam Application to work properly, even if it appear Ok in Device Manager



Edit:
I suggest you at the moment to make that Acer Crystal Eye, the very last prob on the list. Update your Os and make it enjoyable as far you can do then we'll find a workaround...or maybe you will.

OK... if your camera has issues... may be driver problem... as far as I know, there are NO drivers for windows 7, instead, windows 7 install a driver for it, but the bad point is that the driver is deficient, so your best chance is to get the original OEM drivers that came with your PC.

If you don't have them, I have a set of OEM drivers for my Aspire 4535 (that I backed up before doing a clean install of W7 Pro without all the bloatware) that uses the same camera as your Aspire One... the model is Chicony. This driver includes the utility to see your webcam without the need of the messenger or other stuff.

If you need it you can download from here:
Chicony Camera utility Crystal Eye.rar

Execute ONLY the "setup.exe" file, nothing more, the rest are scripts for the Acer recovery system auto install feature...

I hope this can help you.

Anyway... you can try recovering the OEM software that came with your Aspire One... why don't you try Recuva, this utility can help you recover deleted files (even from formatting the HDD) do a scan in your C: drive, the important stuff may be located in a folder called Preload, and inside, a folder called OEM...

See ya!!

Alright. Sorry I've been gone for a bit. I had to switch to my desktop for now because the netbook completely quit working on me. I'm currently in the process of getting it rebuilt from a guy I work with. He's going to completely redo everything and install Windows 7 Ultimate for just over $100. Not bad if you ask me, but I still dont know if the camera will be working then. He's going to try his best to fix the USB ports so I'll report back here when I get the word. Thanks for all your help guys. I'll let you know what he says and what he found out.

Hey, glad you find a "Solution Guy" for that price, there's no reason he couldn't fix it after that full 7 Ultimate install. This will wipe everything and might wipe the wrong driver installed.
