How do activate the webcam on this acer laptop it says it has one built into it but i cant get to come up


Acer uses its own program called Crystal Eye to run its webcam. If you don't have it, go to Toshiba support drivers and put your model of laptop in the search box and then pick your operating system and it will give you a menu of the available drivers and applications for your system. You need this program to work the integrated webcam.

Acer aspire one trouble downloading


Are you downloading software for linux. I know that there is a limewire for linux and an msn for linux. When you save your files also, you need to choose whrere you want them to go. It's a little confusing at first because linux's filesystem is a little different than windows. If you want to save files then you need to find /home/"your linux username"/desktop. "Your linux username" is the username you use to sign in with when you first log into linux.

MSN messenger wont work on acer webbook ?


Press your home blue button, go onto settings in the right handside bottom corner. Then select live update. As its the first update it might take up to two days to load. After that you will be able to use messenger :)
