There is a driver, and an application available from Acer for this webcam, for each different operating system.

Goto:
http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/acerdrivers.cfm
And select your 5520. This will lead you to a PDF document with links to the pairs of driver/app for your operating system. If you have XP, Download the XP driver and the XP app and download them to your desktop.

Goto the control panel, and into the device manager, and make sure this webcam is completely uninstalled.

Then install the web cam with the driver. Use windows add hardware wizard.

The cam should then be available in all programs that support webcams.

Application not found yahoo messenger


Hey.

It is possible that someone has accidentally uninstalled Yahoo! Messenger.

Try going to My Computer > C:/ > Program Files > Yahoo! > Messenger and here look for an icon of a smiley face :) that reads Yahoo! Messenger. Try to open that. If it doesn't work or if it's not there someone messed with your files.

In which case go to Yahoo.com click on Messenger on the left hand side and reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

My yahoo its has been corrupt how can i fix this problem i been trying to download this yahoo messenger but it wont download it.


It would be better if you get the Offline Standalone installer (Yahoo Messenger Beta 11) from a more fast and steady internet connection, so you can install it even with limited or no internet connection. The problem properly be fixed by Re-Installing yahoo messenger.

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
