1**. Double click my computer then double click USB Video Device.
You can see your self then. If the USB Video Device not showing
there then you have to install the cam first.
2. Power On the laptop/PC & after ready your OS for work just put
your Webcam driver disk in DVD/CD RW/ROM. when its open, that
time just select webcam driver and install it as per your operating
system(Vista or XP). So do it, and after finish installation ,restart the
laptop. Your will see your cam is ready for use.
Then follow again the first instruction.**
3. When you confirm after viewing your self in cam , then stop it. Now login on messenger & click to connect the cam from messenger. If any doubt then then ask me a again. Thanks & waiting for your feed back.
First time when you bought your Extensa there was a CD [Acer CD] came with it . You need to insert that CD in the CD driver and install the webcam software . After webcam software installation is done , I recommed to reboot your system , so the installation process works properly . Now if the cam icon didn't appear on the desktop , then go to my computer icon and double click it . You must see the icon there . Just double click it to see , if it works properly .
If you can't find the CD , then you need to go to Acer website to download your cam software and then follow the above steps .
It's always recommended that you restart your system after installing any kind of software . Did you do that ?
If not , then you should do it . If that didn't work , then you should take your Extensa to the service , because it seems that camera is not wired . It's better to get it to an acer shop if you still have the guarantee.
hmmm there might be a preloaded software like 'QUICKPLAY'
Run this software, and click on Music/CD/Cam icon.
Then double click on your cam name wich will be display in a list after double clicking on the Music/CD/Cam icon.
This will open your cam, and you can take your Photo and Videos..
I had this problem on my PC and I tried everything from updating drivers to re installing the software and updating my graphics card but nothing seemed to work.
And then as a last resort I right clicked on the icon on my desktop and chose properties and clicked on the Compatability tab and unchecked on display settings Run in 640x480 screen resolution.
This worked and did not affect the webcam in anyway.
