Windows Vista and 7 ( can't remember about XP ) come with native drivers for the webcam so it may be a problem with these.
You could try running a system file check by browsing to all programs, accessories, right click on the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'. Type in the following command and hit return.
sfc / scannow
If that doesnt work download and install the software driver for your webcam on the link below.
i hope this works for you.
Here are the steps to use web cam on MSM:-
Log in to your account at the MSN Web site.
Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture.
Click the "Webcam" icon.
Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to.
Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin.
Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again.
Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer.
Show or Hide Your Webcam
Open MSN Messenger on your computer.
Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list.
Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse.
Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.

1. Please check my computer, you should be having a camera icon available. 2. once you are connected to yahoo or MSN, you may start the web cam from the chat software itself 3. to enable the webcam chat, initiate the chat and then click on the camera symbol which is available on the messenger window. 4. if you do not have the icon in my computer please re-install the drivers.
When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default app
will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the
same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel. One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messager or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat.. If this doesnt work you may not have the right drivers. Go to the acer website or a 3rd party driver site like www.driveragent.com and update the drivers! Also if running on batt it may be disabled to save power.. right click on my computer click properties and device manager and make sure it is on the list of hardware, or newer verisons of windows control panel > system > Hardware
Install the drivers. If it's installed and detected correctly, you can use it to take pictures by going to "My Computer", "CrystalEye Webcam" and clicking "take picture". If you want to use it for video-conferencing or video chatting, go to your communication program and configure the webcam, after it's configured, start the video session. For example in the main windows of MSN Messenger, go to "tools", "audio and video setup" and choose the best options for your webcam, then in a chat window, go to "Actions", "Video" and "Show my webcam" or "Start Video-conference".
In your control panel you can select system properties and then device manager. If the webcam had a yellow ! then you will need to install or update the drivers. Drivers can be found under the support section at the manufactures website.
(easy way to system properties is windows key + break key)
