I have an acer aspire one laptop. The built in webcam is broken?

I have an acer aspire one laptop. The built in webcam is malfunctioning, when I open the program, the viewing window for the device is not working. It shows the image in 1/4 of the screen, but very small. The other parts of it are green and splotchy. What can I do to make the image fill the window?

Sounds like a problem with the camera unless you made some software changes to your laptop.

Try another program to try your camera out with, if its still not working and your getting the same results then its a hardware problem with the camera. If the camera works with another program then its something in the settings of the original program that probably need to be changed.

Quick suggestion, try using yahoo messenger since that has a camera program built into it and see what the picture looks like from there and if its the same then you know its the camera. If the picture looks good then you still know its the original camera.

Take your laptop to your local computer repair shop, as it will take too long to explain a solution.

Make sure that another webcam application isn't running such as Crystal Eye or whatever program you use to take pictures with the webcam.
