My web cam is not working


Hey Dores this is my first post so I hope it helps. You might want to post a little more information about your problem. Does the web cam work outside of Yahoo messenger? Has it ever worked before? Also, you being able to see your friends does not depend on whether or not you youself have a web cam. If you answer these questions I may be able to provide you with a little more assistance.
