Acer aspire 2920 webcam won't work in msn messenger

I have an Acer aspire 2920 which has built in vista, and also has a built-in webcam. I use a standard account, while my dad controls my account via the admin account.

The webcam is crystal eye, and whenever i try to webcam with my friends the same message comes up which says something like, "your camera appears to be in use in another application please close them and try again." and i don't know what to do because i tried closing everything else, but nothing happened...

Please help?

Thanks,
Anna i'm having exactly the same problem, have you figured out how to deal with it yet?

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

use the task manager, (ctrl+alt+del) and go under processes, and look for anything that seems like it is related to your camera and end process them! and try again!

Acer's built in webcam


Take your laptop to your local computer repair shop, as it will take too long to explain a solution.
Good Luck.

Web cam


In msn live click on show menu then tools option for cam setup
If that don't work click again show menu then actions then video then show my webcam or start video conversation.
If taht does'nt work then I would assume it's something in your camera setup itself

Acer Aspire 8920G camera functionality


Vista does not include any way to test the camera. You may have QuickPlay in the Programs list - this will test the camera.
You can use MSN messenger and establish a video link or load Skype.
Try this
Willing WebCam Lite from www.willingsoftware.com if you want to test it.
