2. Select Family, line and model then click confirm.

4. After downloading, install the driver then restart your computer.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My computer continues to say webcam not found


Receiving an error message when trying to access your webcam can be frustrating, but the problem can often be resolved by doing some basic troubleshooting.



  • If you have an external webcam, check to see if it has become accidentally unplugged from your computer.
  • Perhaps another program is using your webcam. Close other programs and try accessing your webcam again.
  • If another program has crashed for some reason, it might not have released your webcam successfully. Try closing all programs and restarting your computer.
  • If you have an external webcam, it might not have installed correctly. Try reinstalling your webcam software program according to the manufacturer's instructions. For more information, go to How do I reinstall my webcam?
  • Perhaps Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device on your computer. Try changing the camera source. For more information, go to How do I change my camera source?
  • Your webcam might not be configured correctly. Try reconfiguring your webcam according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Your camera might not be not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger you can verify this by using the webcam compatibility test. To try the webcam compatibility test, go to How can I tell if my webcam will work withYahoo! Messenger?

Sorry, no Webcam was found on your system


You might receive the "Sorry, no webcam was found on your system" error for any of the following reasons:
  • You don't have a webcam installed on your system.
  • You have a webcam installed, but it is not plugged in to your computer.
  • Another application is using your webcam. Close the other applications and try again.
  • Other applications might have crashed or not released the camera. Try rebooting your system.
  • Your camera might not be installed correctly. Try reinstalling your camera.
  • Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device. Try changing the camera source.
  • Your camera might not be configured correctly. Try configuring your camera.
  • Your camera is not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger. Take the webcam compatibility test.
Where's the Contact Customer Care button? With so many improvements to Messenger since the version you're using (lots more features and reliability), we figured you're ready to move up. So get your upgrade and with the new version, rest assured if you have questions, you’ll find that friendly button on its help pages. Thanks for helping u....

Acer aspire one webcam. HELP?


The Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam automatically integrates itself into whichever program you are using be it an aftermarket video control or Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Messenger. The only way I know how to bring it up MANUALLY is to go to the Control Panel or your Start menu (in Accessories) and bring up the Scanner & Camera Wizard. When you bring that up, click "Next" and it will start the camera and you will see yourself. When using a program like Windows Live Messenger (version 8.5 is the BEST!) you will have to tell the program what source to use for the camera, Your only choice is the Crystal Eye Web Cam unless you have installed a different cam that sits atop your screen, in which case, tell the program to use that one. You might try downloading a program called YAWCAM from the web and installing that. Just do a Google search for it. Give that a try because the Acer web cam doesn't do video with the limited controls in Scanner & Camera Wizard.

Obi cam wont work in messenger


If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam:
There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately.
Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software.
The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source:
1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam."
2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."
3. Click the "Webcam" category.
4. Click the "Camera Source" button.
5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera.
6. Click the "OK" button.
If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam:
Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again.
If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.
