Re: Camera not working!
Just disconnect camera and uninstall software, if there is no programme showing as running (press Ctrl/Alt/Delete to see it there is); if not,then it's software problem.
If there is a relevant programme running click on it then click 'end task'
Re install software and re connect your camera.

try to google it, or go to the cams website and see if they provide an installation software for their cameras there had the same problem with my webcam, couldnt find the the installation cd for my cam, but found the installation file at this place www.softpedia.com, try it maybe it will help.
Put your PC on and left click at setting; control panel; and add hardware wizard. Just follow the instruction, and find out if your labtec camera is configured in your O.S.(operating system - xp, 07, etc.). Click to install it. Just follow the instruction prompted by your PC. Otherwise, you can install it in your PC through a Labtec CD software driver installer. Or get connected to the internet get your download. Just type at the search engine (Download for software driver Labtec (961307-0914) Camera). Get your download and install it in your PC.
Here is the download page for your camera's drivers. A rule of thumb for me is to NEVER use included software/install disks when I buy hardware, you can find them on the manufacturer's website and when downloading you can more easily find different builds (for example, my printer only came with the disks to install the suite of applications, whereas the basic operational drivers were available online). here is the download site for your webcam brand, just pick out your model, download, and install!
You microphone is working, your family camera is working, your camera is not working.
if you installed the correct drivers and program that came with the camera, the program should have a walk through while installing, it should test the settings of your camera.
If not open the labtec program and test the settings. If there is no Labtec program installed on your PC, you will need to install that software.
OK well for starter, try uninstalling the origional software, then restart, then plug the camera into ANY OTHER USB port, when? the PC detects it, let it install the driver,from a disk etc, then to test it Google for the program Amcap and download and install it, then select the camera and see if it works OK..
