The webcam which is integral to the computer doesnt seem to be working on msn its as if there is no webcam help please?


This is just a proposal.
The first ting i wold do is to make shore the best driver for the camera i installed
when this is in order i wold try to install msn again by doing it like this:
First download and make shore you have the newest version of MSN.
Uninstall ( if possible) MSN.
Install the new MSN when the integrated camera is working properly.
MSN should find the camera by it self i believe.
In Control panel choose System; Device Manager.
Right click mouse over Camera.
Chose properties and then Update driver.
Use this link to download DriverMax!

Install and use it and you want have driver problems!

Webcam from toshiba with msn always says it is in


Try this first. Install the Latest Version of DirectX. Before continuing with diagnostics, please make sure you are using the latest release of DirectX. You can download the latest release here. Just copy and paste into your browser.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3

Do this before downloading the newest DirectX.
1.. Unplug the camera.
2.. Uninstall the camera software using Add/Remove Programs in the Windows Control Panel.
1.. Click "Start", "Settings", and "Control Panel".
2.. Double click the Add/Remove Programs icon.
3.. Highlight the Logitech camera software and click the Add/Remove
button. (Change/Remove if you are using Windows XP.)
4.. Install the latest DirectX version from Microsoft.
5.. Reinstall the camera software.
Verify That the Device Has Been Loaded in the Device Manager
When Windows correctly detects the Logitech video camera it will load. 6.. Have the disk available for your webcam as you may be asked for it.

Let me know if this works for you. If not provide me with your brand and model of your webcam and operating system you are using.

Intergrated webcam not working


If it's not physically damaged you can fix it yourself. Could be a driver conflict, have you installed any new programs lately?

In your Start menu search, type "Device Manager". Open DM and click the + next to "Imaging Devices". Find your webcam and double click it. What does it say on the "General" tab for "Device Status"? You can go to the Driver tab and "Update Driver". Try letting Windows find the best driver for you. If it tells you that you already have the best driver installed, but it still won't work, try uninstalling the driver and updating it again.

Your webcam drivers can also be found on your recovery discs, and Acer's website.

My webcam won't work on msn!


Unistall Windows Live Messenger
Erase the installation folder and this (XP): .\Documents and Settings\All Users\WLinstaller (or something that begins with WL and sound like that)
in Vista is in .\ProgramData\
REBOOT: REALLY IMPORTANT, I DID IT WITHOUT REBOOT AND DIDN'T WORK
After reboot, reinstall.
And everything's done.

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
