My web cam is an inbuilt one with Acer 4710z laptop. It works otherwise but not with Yahoo messenger. Its all black. Neither can my frnds c me nor can I. However i can c the others wen they invite me to view them. How can i solve this problem. Earlier this used to happen rarely and was solved by restarting the machine. But now it is not at all working with yahoo.
Please lemme know. I cheked this site for answers but one of them says that if i uninstalled and reinstalled it will get resolved. R there any other things i can do?
Im not sure but please try this you go to the control panel to test your webcam if it is working or not. Control panel-scanner and camera, click the installed camera in ur pc, run the wizard if the webcam is working and if u do not view ur self in your cam, therefore u must follow the first solution they advised to u. Godbless hope this solution will help to you to solve ur problem

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.
When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default app
will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the
same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel. One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messager or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat.. If this doesnt work you may not have the right drivers. Go to the acer website or a 3rd party driver site like www.driveragent.com and update the drivers! Also if running on batt it may be disabled to save power.. right click on my computer click properties and device manager and make sure it is on the list of hardware, or newer verisons of windows control panel > system > Hardware
first you properly install the Web Cam Software, then you open the Yahoo messenger and again access the web cam. I hope it will work fine. sometimes yahoo messenger not access to Web Cam, that time yahoo messanger not working properly.
Acer Aspire Model generally comes with a bison web cam driver.
To use the web cam search for an application that installed in program files.In windows Xp web cam can be used by double clicking camera icon present in my computer. If you are using windows vista or other operating system you need an camera application software,to use it. Without application software you can use your web camera only in messengers,for example yahoo messenger. If u had an yahoo messenger login and click on view my web cam,now you can see your face in your laptop.So first thing is search for an application software installed on your laptop.
i suggest to uninstall the yahoo messenger and uninstall the web cam driver and then follow this 1. after you uninstall the yahoo messenger and web cam driver. Reinstall first the webcam driver and then the yahoo messenger. this should fix the problem.
