Crystal Eye is working properly, but error message says can't access.
Hi, I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5 web cam and the Acer Cystal Eye web cam has stopped working. When I tried to test it with Skype I got the message 'Can't access web cam. Close all other programs that might be using it.' I had no other programs open.
I then went to Devices and checked out the camera there and it said it was working properly! (I tried the Microsoft 'troubleshooting' but that was no help at all as it doesn't give anything for Windows XP which I have on the netbook).
I also tried using the web cam with MSN Messenger and it wouldn't work with that either.
Although this is an unrelated problem, I have also discovered that my RealTek HD audio is also not working, unless I use head phones, whereas I used to be able to hear all sounds without using them. I am wondering if these problems are related and could it be something to do with the BIOS settings? If so, how do I put it right?
Is this a good question?
