I bought an Acer Aspire V5-471G laptop with Windows 8 SL preinstalled. I reformatted it and downgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate x64. All drivers were intact except for the Web Cam!
I went to the Acer Driver page and an Acer HD Crystal Eye driver is not listed for Aspire V5 - 471G.
There is an application provided there (from Cyberlink) but IMAGE QUALITY is degraded! Before I reformatted my laptop, the images that my Web Cam captures are very clear and doesn't have any noise but now image quality is lower.
I went to device manager and only an HD Webcam is installed and not an Acer Crystal Eye Driver.
Again, IMAGE QUALITY I GET IS DIFFERENT USING THE GENERIC WINDOWS DRIVER!!
