Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam

I haven't touched a single setting in my computer but I went to connect to a web conversation and my computer simply says "Camera not found". Its not even there in the hardware. What may have happened and how do I fix it?

I use vista in my notebook, Acer aspire,5720
And only once I achieved to use my webcam on MSN.
And this is the second time my notebook is in need of technical help.
I didn't use it in full performance from the very first day I bought it.
Besides I work till late hours and there isn't a technical support whenever I need.

    i am having the same problem,

    i know the camera is working because i can take photos with it but when it comes to connecting it on msn live messenger it just doesn't seem to work,

    then when you try and access the camera through its own programme it tells you "camera is busy"

If it isnt listed under hardware then something may have happened to cause the computer to delete the file "virus protection or firewall" and it may be that your computer just isnt reconizing the software anymore. if you have an installation disk try to use it and reinstall the stuff and go from there.

Try to locate the camera driver and do a update also might be a fix download for the Crystal Eye Cam through Acer Or another download site. Another idea would be to get a driver Program which checks all your drivers on the main items like keyboard, web cam , mouse, monitor, graphics the one i use is DriverDetective works great!
