Without knowing your model of webcam, I would direct you to their manufacturer to download their latest drivers and for the manual to properly install the webcam. You basically need to just download the webcam driver, plug in the webcam, and bring up the software for webcam to start it up

How do I get my webcam to stop showing black screen?

You may have to do a remove/reinstall of the webcam software for the webcam. Make sure to clean the lens of the webcam and ensure that the connection cord you are using to connect to the computer is working correctly. A faulty cord will cause a black screen/no reception to come in from the webcam.

Using Yahoo to chat - I plug in the webcam and attempt to broadcast but the screen comes up black ( no the cap is not on :))

You may have a problem with your internet connection. If your connection is too slow, it takes FOREVER for the webcam to get the picture to the screen. You may also want to check your settings for your webcam. If you have poor lighting (every webcam is different, but my webcam sees everything VERY dark), you will see a black screen. Set up a light behind you, and check your connection!

I have drivers, i need software. i dont know why it is nt working properly. it comes black wen it is set to use.

The drivers are the software to run your webcam.. If you have installed drivers - assuming they are the correct drivers for your operating system and webcam the problem lies elsewhere...

What is the problem you are having - You see a black screen on your desktop, when your webcam is turned on?

Remove the screen cap, wipe it clean and turn the webcam on and off. Then try restarting your computer.

Let me know how you get on with the above and we can work on the specific error you receive.
