My fix was to replace the webcam. I bought one off Ebay from someone breaking an Aspire one for spares. It worked straight away. The original had just failed. Not at all hard to open the lid and fit. Chunky12

Try restoring your system to tine when it was working fine. Go to Start---->All Programs-----> Accessories----->System Tolls-----> System Restore
This should guide you through the process of returning to previous state. Good Luck
Adjust your browser security setting to allow webcams if you have flash micro media you will see the camra security but if you go to internet setting you can ajust the broswer setting from there .make sure that your firewall allow your webcam .then let me know how you did

Hi there I've just had the same prob with my Acer Aspire 5535. It seems there are compatibility problems with the webcam and the most recent version of MSN. I've now downgraded to v8.1 and it works perfectly fine. I'm probably gonna have a go at using a slightly newer version and see how far I can get before I goes wrong again as v8.1 isn't the most attractive of versions :-)
your cam has to be setup on msn as well After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting and follow the instructions.
let me know if this helped

I'm not sure if your problem is fixed yet or not, but I had this same problem when I updated to windows live 2009. But whenever I deleted it and got an older version of live it works just fine. So, I think it's msn and not the webcam..but i'm not positive about that. Mine just seemed to work after I got an older version.
