Hi,
I had the same problem and I went to Tools > Audio and Video Setup, pressed next at the audio part, then chose 'USB video device' from the list and waited a couple of seconds until I appeared in the window.
This is confusing as it is not a USB webcam, but an internal one, but it uses a driver called usbcam.sys, so maybe this is why..
Then press finish and it should work for videocalls and sending webcam requests.
It must've been some default setting when the Messenger update happened, I don't really know, but that's how to fix it.
Hope this helps

Acer Aspire 5315 micro dont work after installing Windows 7 :(


Hello rudifuhr37,

There might be a hardware compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the microphone driver. The following two web sites might offer information that can better help to find a possible solution.

1). The Microsoft Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility List. It can only be viewed with Internet Explorer.
http://windows7news.com/2009/09/20/windows-7-hardware-compatibility-list/

2). The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer Aspire 5315 is NOT in this list !):

Have a great day,

Ok i have had my acer aspire 5315-2326 for a year


try downloading the compatible acer aspire webcam software for your laptop. My laptop is also acer. It is aspire 4730z and it works perfectly fine. I think the software you are using is not compatible with your laptop.

Also most aspire models have lesser durability webcams. It gets really annoying when webcams of aspire won't work. I completely understand your situation.

Just follow my instruction and it will work perfectly fine.

After you start Windows Live Messenger,
expand the view by clicking on the square
on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the
right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click
on “Show the Menu Bar”.
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action.
Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting
and follow the instructions.

Make sure that another webcam application isn't running such as Crystal Eye or whatever program you use to take pictures with the webcam.

Dont know how to operate my web cam.I have a ASPIRE 5315 with the web cam built in


Use a software that you may have got installed. It must be something like YouCam, maybe.

Or use a chat software like Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or ICQ. They have webcam options for video calls. But you can't take photos or videos there.
