You have not written what operating system you are running and which webcam you are trying to install.
The procedure to install the webcam is same for all webcams. I am asuming the you are using winXP and you are trying to install webcam. put the cd which came with webcam in the cd drive and install the driver.Mostly the cd will Autorun. After installing the driver connect the webcam .The operating system will detect new hardware i.e webcam. To see wether your webcam is properly installed on your system right click on mycomputer>manage>click on Device Manager . you will see list of all the hardware on your system. you can expand imaging devices . under imaging devices you can see your webcam installed. If your webcam is not properly installed you will see a red symbol on your webcam listed in there.

I hope this information is useful to you . All the webcams will be installed in the same procedure .Please rate my post if you find it helpful.
Thanks and Regards

I have a Dell 530 S Dell Inspiron. Its Webcam has stopped working. Any solutions


The very first step is of course to check your web cam connection. Most web cams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if your USB cable is properly plugged. For build-in web cams this steps does of course not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in web cam. Also try connecting your web cam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one).

The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.

It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem.
Other devices in Windows XP device manager

If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, Right-click the device, and in the pop up menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.

In case no driver for the web cam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.

If this fails, the next step would be to un install the software that came with your web cam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party un installer.

After un installing the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the web cam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your web cam during the software installation.If your problem is not fixed then you have to buy a new one.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

Can see other web cams but others can not see my


hello,
first of all, check if the web cam has a button on top of it, if it does, that is the switch to turn it on.

or you check if the connector to the system is properly plugged, if not plug properly and restart your system.

My web cam does not work when I go to youcam it doesnt recognize or the camera doesnt work. But online the notice I have a camer but it doesnt work


Hi,
Did you have software installed to use the WebCam? You need software to run the WebCam. Install the web cam software in your PC. Look in your program folder to locate webcam software. Then you access the web cam through this software. Your problem must be solved.

Thanks

Webcam driver stops working during regular PC operation.


If the Web cam was Generic, or even Brand name, and it came with a Drivers disc (this would mean that it is not plug and play), try completely uninstalling the Driver software for the web cam. After the uninstall has finished, reinstall the drivers, taking extra care to follow ALL on screen instructions to the T. If at some point there were other web cams, and the drivers that belonged to those cams installed on the computer, be sure to fully uninstall all of them. Only use the cam and the drivers that you are attempting to install. After all of that, the cam should work just fine.

If for some reason the cam does not work after reinstalling the drivers, try a different brand of web cam. The computer that the drivers are attempting to operate on may not be adequate to support those drivers. If that's the case, try a generic, cheaper web cam as I said.

Also: While powering up the cam, don't run anything unnecessary.

Hope this helps.
