Hi there I've just had the same prob with my Acer Aspire 5535. It seems there are compatibility problems with the webcam and the most recent version of MSN. I've now downgraded to v8.1 and it works perfectly fine. I'm probably gonna have a go at using a slightly newer version and see how far I can get before I goes wrong again as v8.1 isn't the most attractive of versions :-)
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 have not updated then try and update messenger.
If this does'nt help then you need to uninstall the cam and then reinstall.

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.
