Question about Computers & Internet
I have recently bought a laptop with a webcam, but there is no webcam installed and I have never used it, but I can see that it is there. My laptop is acer aspire 5516. Please help me. I have no installation cd and I am new to windows vista. I have done a search for camera and Acer Crystal Eye Camera is amongst my results. I set it up and everything but it still doesnt work. Any help you could give me is very welcome.

If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings. Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
If you still have problems with your mic. then - To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek.
If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.
