Webcam giving black picture

Hello there!

I am trying to help my father install some devices he has bought & struggled to get working.

He has a Toshiba Satellite A60 running Windows XP home edition version 5.1 SP 3.

I tried to install a negative scanner "summit photofix copier" but the image generated is like white noise (snow,), with a bit of colour. The webcam just displays a black image. The webcam is a PC line PCL300k.

Because both these devices are video related I think it might be a video driver issue - but I don't know & am running out of ideas.

Any suggestions?

    It probably is a driver related issue. You should try downloading the latest ones on for each device you recently installed.
