Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
I go on msn and want to go on webcam but it doesnt work all it says is
We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again. But i have no other programmes running.
Same problem with acer crystal eye. worked for about two days when new. Will never, never, never buy another acer. a real piece of junk.

Are you running Vista?
I had the same problem, and when I installed the service pack for Vista, and made sure I had the latest version of MSN Messenger by reinstalling it from the msn home page, it started to work!
Now, my problem is that I cant adjust any of the settings on it, other than Brightness, saturation, sharpness, gamma and backlight. I'd love to be able to use the Contrast and ColorEnable, and the low light compensation options which are there, but greyed out. Anyone help with this?

I've just bought a 7720 and had the same prob. Because i had a limited software support i phoned them and they told me to remove the sample pictures from the pictures folder and any other photo's in there and try it. And it worked, i don't know what it did but i can now use my webcam with MSN

My first reccomendation is to get the newest driver pack for that webcam specifically.
Before installing, I would uninstall the webcam drivers you currently have, reboot, then clean install the new drivers.
A lot of the time, it's a driver error that can cause that kind of problem.

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
