I bought a windows vista laptop last week and have not changed any settings on it .. But when i want to start viewing web cam it says
We couldnt start your camera device please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program and then try again ??
please help me xx
In the situation like this were you have just bought the laptop a week ago i suggest that you take the problem to your buyer. If the laptop is Brand New then it definity shouldn't have this problem but if it is used then you might need to ask your buyer for any problems that the owner before you had.

You should have an application called Acer Crystal Eye on your system for the built-in WebCam. Check the Programs list under the Start window for Acer Crystal Eye. This should turn on the camera.
For the microphone click Start>Control Panel>Sound>Recording to see if the microphone is being detected. If it is, click on the Microphone icon and turn the microphone on.
Let me know if you need a driver or have any other questions. Thanks.
"My Computer" is the only way to access it. Not sure why they set it up that way, but they did. Right click it and create shortcut that you can drag to desktop. The camera also does not come with software. It uses windows native control for it. If you you were able to screw up the design of a 300.00 laptop.....they did it with that camera.
your cam has to be setup on msn as well 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.
let me know if this helped
Uninstall, then reinstall with latest drivers this will be where to start, is web cam attached permanantly? if not try it on another pc if it is try a usb web cam with your laptop. In other words try to do some trouble shooting to narrow down where we need to focus our attention to get you going again
i think you cant use the built in cam from your acer to used for video conferencing using logitect account. but you can disable the built in cam of your acer and install logitect to your acer to continue loging in you logitec account.
