You have to set cam up with the program

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.
if you still have a problem please let me know and don't forget to rate

Hi, not sure whether you are experiencing the same problem as me but it sounds like it. If you are running McAfee virus software you may like to try this fix.
Firstly click Start, All Programs, Acer Crystall Eye webcam. If the camera is working you will see an image appear on the screen and the problem is likely to be firewall related, if this is the case follow instructions below which I obtained from Acer:
Hello, Thank you for contacting Acer.
Regarding your enquiry,
We have been made aware that a recent update to a plug in to McAfee Internet Security, this has stopped the inbuilt webcam working in MSN messenger.
McAfee is aware of the issue and is working on a fix for it it. As a work around you’ll need to configure the Site Advisor section of McAfee to stop it monitoring MSN Live Messenger.

Please follow the following steps:
1. Click on the start menu and type run into the start search box and click on the run icon (for Vista) or click on run (for XP).
2. Type C:\Program Files\McAfee\SiteAdvisor and click on ok.
3. Find the file called sasets.ini and then right-click on it and choose Open With, then select Notepad.

  1. Change Enabled=1 to Enabled=0.
5. Now click on the header file and choose save.
6. Close notepad.
7. Restart the machine.
it wouldn't allow me to directly save the notepad, I had to save a copy to my desktop. Close down McAfee then overwrite the sasets.ini file with my new save.

I can not get the web cam to work


Instructions1 Take pictures independent of communications software on the Windows version of the netbook by using the webcam without connecting to networking software.

3 To send and receive live video and pictures using your webcam on an Acer laptop, work the webcam through individual communications software, including Skype, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, or Google Video Chat.

How do I get to my webcam in my acer laptop d150 i like to be able to make a icon for the webcam on my desktop , so i can adjust the settings in it as well , as au moment i do not even know were it is or...


Read this FAQ from ACER:
How to use the built-in webcam? The integrated webcam can be used by third-party applications such as Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Skype etc. Use the webcam button in the messenger software and it will automatically turn on and start the webcam.
Select models of Acer netbooks also ship with a program "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". This program will enable the webcam immediately after startup and can be used to take pictures and record video.

For our Linux-based netbook, you can find the Instant Messenger program in the "Connect" section on the desktop . Additional software like Skype, are available through our special website for the Aspire One netbook. Within the "Fun" section of your Linux desktop, you will find a program called "Webcam" which can be used to test the built-in webcam.


Look for "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" entry in the programs menu, then right click on the program icon and click on "Send to the desktop as a shortcut".

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).

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam and MSN Messenger


Hi,
Make sure you are not running the Desktop Icon program first. The camera can only be used by one program at a time.
Now login to Messenger, and click
Tools > Audio and Video Setup, and click Next past the audio settings, and choose USB Video Device from the list. It should work after a couple of seconds. If that doesn't work, try the other device drivers from the list, waiting a couple of seconds each time, until you can see some output in the window. Then apply and you're ready to go.
It's the same deal with Skype, except it's in
Tools > Options > Audio Settings.

Hope this helps

Acer Crystal Eye Webcam and MSN Messenger


I'm not sure if your problem is fixed yet or not, but I had this same problem when I updated to windows live 2009. But whenever I deleted it and got an older version of live it works just fine. So, I think it's msn and not the webcam..but i'm not positive about that. Mine just seemed to work after I got an older version.
