First go into control panel, click system and go to device manager. Make sure there are no conflicts when the web cam is plugged in. Is this webcam built into the laptop or via usb?
Thanks,

I have a dell laptop and i have a bulit in webcam, i go on msn and my cam wont show when i'm trying to have a video call with someone...i need my cam to work on msn, how do i show it on msn ?


Open the MSN messenger program and click Tools and Options and there should be an option somewhere on there that allows you to choose your webcam.

If that doesn't work, check Start--> and right click on My computer, then click Manage.

Under there click Device manager and verify there is nothing that has a Yellow exclamation point next to it. If so that means that the drivers are not installed and we will have to reinstall them to make the computer recognize the webcam

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

When i am on msn and want to put on webcam a message appears in a conversation saying Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)


This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:

Toshiba Satellite A200-AH5 Troubleshoot


The type of pc is not as important as the type of webcam at this point. The story also needs more details.

If you had a Logtec webcam and at first it only worked with its custom made software, what did you do to make it work with MSN?
----------------
Based of the info provided, I would
1. uninstall all cam software while the cam is unpluged,

2. Reboot the pc. Then plug the cam in.

3. When windows detects the cam, it will ask for drivers, do not click on search on windows update website, click the option to choose from a specific location and then browse to the cd provided.

4. Try and load msn now. The msn website or the cam company sometimes have a patch to make the cam and the messenger work together. I would check the cam website before looking around the microsoft site.
