Help Acer Aspire 7720 with Crystal Eye Webcam

I just bought this laptop 3 days ago and I cant get the webcam to work with Windows live messenger It works with skype. When I select my webcam in messenger it tells me Windows cant find the webcam. Close all programs that may be using it. If I shut skype down and select my webcam in windows live messenger it still doesnt work. Sometimes if I try to turn my webcam on it says it is busy. I have tried uninstalling messenger and reinstalling still same problem. I tried updating driver for the webcam and it tells me I have the most recent driver. Any help woud be appreciated :)

The first thing to check is if your webcam is working correctly. If you're running Windows XP, click on the "start" button, then click on "My Computer". Now double click on "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". It should now show a screen with video from the webcam (probably of your face in front of the computer).

I'm not sure if your problem is fixed yet or not, but I had this same problem when I updated to windows live 2009. But whenever I deleted it and got an older version of live it works just fine. So, I think it's msn and not the webcam..but i'm not positive about that. Mine just seemed to work after I got an older version.

If you go to your start menu, look for a programme called 'acer crystal eye webcam' and that will bring up your webcam programme.
It is not in the folder 'Acer crystal eye webcam' though, just 'Crystal eye webcam'.

start \ all programmes \ Crystal Eye Webcam \ Crystal Eye Webcam.

If this proves fruitless, type webcam into the search option at the bottom of your start menu and look for the crystal eye webcam.

If these do not work, then look in your control panel to make sure it is installed. If not, contact company, they have a good customer service standard (from my experience)

Your questions are less about an issue and more about just how to use the machine. persavere and keep trying different things. Eventually good things will happen. Its how we all had to learn. As for accessing the camera go to start and search the word cam. vistas usually pretty good and will find it for you
