Try and reinstall the driver
if you have acer recovery open and reinstall applications
recovery if not on desktop will be in my computer or c:\ drive where you'll see a folder named Acer

    Configure cam with yahoo

    Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
    Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
    Next Calling and Devices on the right and
    set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
    Next go to the Test Audio section and in blue writing click
    on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions
    on the left window.

Are you saying that it can or cannot find your camera

And did you go to the acer website to find the drivers for your camers

Is it a built in webcam

My acer aspire 4530's crystal eye webcam went black screen sometime.. especially when im tilting it what could be the problem?

I'm having a similar problem except my screen always shows only black. If you can get your image to appear sometimes it sounds like you may have a short in the hardware connecting your camera. I think you should contact ACER support and let them know you have a suspected hardware problem. I've tried uninstalled (right click my computer --> properites--> device manger-->imaging devices --> right click on webcam and select uninstall. The camera will re-install automatically when you reboot or have device manager scan for new hardware. You can also go to the acer website downloads section and make sure you have the latest webcam driver.

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam

The first thing to check is if your webcam is working correctly. If you're running Windows XP, click on the "start" button, then click on "My Computer". Now double click on "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". It should now show a screen with video from the webcam (probably of your face in front of the computer).

Crystral eye webcam

I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.
