    I'll try to help,



    First of all, have you tried the supplied software (if there is) to check if you can get it to work? For instance, my Crystall eye cam has some provided software in which I can record vids. Do you have any? If not, please tell me what kind of cam u have.



    regards Ronnie

Click on Start > Control panel > Hardware and sound > Device Manager and remove the camera drivers. Restart the laptop and they should install automatically as they are included with the windows 7 OS. Please let me know how this goes.

Webcam wont load up saying We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again.


some applications, like photoshop or any other video/picture editing software may connect to your camera as you boot up by default. this can cause problems for other apps that may use your camera like MSN messenger or others. try closing any other programs that may have a connection to your camera then try again.
hope this helps

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
