How to fix my acer crystal eye webcam on msn

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.

    I can open the little toolbar that sits at the side of the screen but when I click on it to open it, the program runs for less than a second then disappears. It was working fine four days ago with the SKYPE application. Have looked for other applications but none running and also rebooted a couple of times.

    Mine is an Acer Aspire 5630-6992 with Vista

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

Straight from MSN helpdesk:

1. Click Start, click Run, copy and paste the following text: %SystemDrive%\Program Files\McAfee\SiteAdvisor in the Run box and click OK.
2. Right-click the file sasets.ini or sasets.dll and select Open With, then select Notepad.
3. Locate the section titled [msnmsgr.exe].
4. Change Enabled=1 to Enabled=0.
5. Click File and select Save.
6. Close sasets.ini or sasets.dll and restart your computer

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.
