The problem is the webcam software is hooked up on another program and the Messenger program cannot find it. I have a plug-in cam and can reboot it by just unplugging it for a couple of seconds before I go into chat.
You will have to restart the computer, use keyboard shortcut keys or diasable - enable the webcam from the Imaging folder in the Device Manager if yours is built-in
Re-check your webcam settings
INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

You need to click on [Start] then click on [My Computer] and then [Acer Crystal Eye Webcam] will show up then click on the [Camera]. If this does not work then it could be that the cam driver needs reinstalling or maybe faulty. Take it back to your dealer!

Take your laptop to your local computer repair shop, as it will take too long to explain a solution.

Did you install the necessary drivers for the webcam. If not, use the CD that came with the laptop to install the drivers and then try to use it with Yahoo, etc..
