See section C. Windows Live Messenger in the info below.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have an acer aspire 5536-5411 laptop, with built in web cam. i have no idea how to use it, please provide directions. Thank you


Sign up for Skype or install Windows Live Messenger or another service that supports the webcam like AOL Instant messaging. Then, the camera can be used with such software.

You can also search under 'web cam' in the help section of Windows 7.

Good luck on using your webcam.

How to work the acer crystal webcame


You can use your web cam on many different applications. To test it out and take some pictures you can go to "My Computer" and then find something like camera, web cam, etc. You can also use in Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AIM, etc. Hope you have fun.

Good luck,

Web cam not working


Since you have a NEW computer, I will assume you have Vista on it. Yahoo messenger does not support the use of a web cam with Vista.
