Ok, So, I installed the CD ROM for my webcam, and i unplugged it for a bit, then when I plugged back in my webcam to use it, it says "Webcam not connected" My webcam IS connected, and I know I downloaded the program for it, because I've used it several time's already, So why is this just now happening? This really ****'s because I no longer have the disc for the webcam with me. So what do I do?

hi, if you have the motherboard installer,the driver for your built in webcam is on the mobo installer just insert the disc on the CD ROM,and it will run automatically click the webcam driver.then follow the set up process.
Remove the webcam drivers and then reinstall them if this wont solve you will need to check/open the device mananger, check for the properties of the webcam and update drivers once again.
Scan the PC for virus if there are faulty files it is possible that the OS is corrupt. If not the webcam hardware might be faulty.
you need to scan for new hardware and see if recognizes it if not try this Check if driver for webcam is properly installed. You can check that by
going to control panel then click on system then click device manager.
The webcam should be listed in the device list if properly installed.
Try to press Fn key + Esc key at the same time to enable/disable webcam.
but what i just described there kinda seemed like you did it already. if its a usb webcam. unplug it and plug it back in. also check there website for the drivers. if you did fn and esc and u turned it off then it wont show up in the device manager.
Insert the CD into your CD-Rom and install the software first and after complete installing attach your webcam and take a reboot. Make sure before installation your webcam not attach with the PC.
Most Webcam's today are plug and play, just plug the webcam into one of your USB ports and let windows or MAC install it for yourself. If it doesnt work, use the CD that came with it to install the driver. If it didnt came with a CD, open your web browser, go to google and type the model number of your webcam plus the word "driver" download the drivers or software related to your Webcam and that solves it.
For a quicker solution to your problem, respond with the model number.
1**. Double click my computer then double click USB Video Device.
You can see your self then. If the USB Video Device not showing
there then you have to install the cam first.
2. Power On the laptop/PC & after ready your OS for work just put
your Webcam driver disk in DVD/CD RW/ROM. when its open, that
time just select webcam driver and install it as per your operating
system(Vista or XP). So do it, and after finish installation ,restart the
laptop. Your will see your cam is ready for use.
Then follow again the first instruction.**
3. When you confirm after viewing your self in cam , then stop it. Now login on messenger & click to connect the cam from messenger. If any doubt then then ask me a again. Thanks & waiting for your feed back.
before installng the driver you must first remove it by uninstalling the previous driver from your machine. To do that, go to control panel, click the webcam software that you use then click uninstall. after uninstalling put the cd to the dvd rom drive then, run it, then install it.
