    Hi
    Just installed Win 7 ultimate on my son's acer one AOA150Ab.

    Everything seems to work except the Web Camera..
    Device manager shows a USB Camera, but it has the yellow exclamation mark.

    Can some one point me to the correct drivers for this.
    Thanks :)

    Use the win 7 driver for the LiteOn camera from the Acer website. You can use the Vista drivers as well. Also grab the synaptics touchpad driver for multitouch.

    Yes, finally a working webcam on Windows 7 with AOA150.

    Using "Camera_liteon_0.73_Vistax86XPx86_A.zip" run as compatible as Vista. http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles ... en&SC=PA_6

    Then go to Program files, Acer Crystal Eye, and run the .exe

    You don't need to install anything else.

    Not working for me either. I've tried both "Camera_liteon_0.73_Vistax86XPx86_A" and "Camera_liteon_0.73_W7x86_A" and neither work.

    I'm dual booting XP and W7 Ultimate. The camera works ok in XP.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT:

    I tried all three on the acer website listed for W7 and the one from Suyin works:
