Acer Aspire One webcam fault

  geordiepaul2001 23:32 16 Sep 2010

Hi all,

Whenever I run my webcam (skype, msn etc) the images are always black and white.
I have tried the latest drivers from the Acer website but to no avail.

Any suggestions?

If you launch the webcam on its own without skype is it still black and white? Have a look at the hue settings.

Apologies for the late response.
The camera shows in my computer as a usb camera.
The colours are black and white, though slightly better close up.
The only options I can change are in color management (profiles) and all three seem exactly the same.

Is it maybe just the standard of webcam on this netbook?
