Question about PC Laptops
I cant get any software to recognize the webcam. I have downloaded all the recent drivers including those from the acer website, but every time I attempt to install them I'm told that there is no webcam. This also happens when I try and install the acer crystal view software. I initially had the software on my computer but when I opened it it told me there was no webcam and disappeared off my had drive! Has anyone had a simelar issue and if so how did they fix it?
Some newer cams are not compatible with Yahoo, check here to make sure yours is. If not (too new) then try a 3rd party software to run it through... I've used a free fun one called 'ManyCam' , if you run your laptop cam through that it should work on yahoo messenger.
