See Section B. Yahoo Messenger in info below.
Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Sounds like your camera is not set to default in the 'webcam source' and the current webcam source is showing a tv card

Skype
Tools > Options >Video settings - set cam as default > Save

WLM
Open Menu > Tools > Audio & Video setup > Next - Set webcam as default > Save

Yahoo Messenger
Mesenger > My webcam > Messenger > Preferences > Audio & Video setup - Set webcam as default > Apply OK

Use this link from Yahoo Messenger help to download AMCap its a little bit of software that checks to see if a webcam is compatible to Yahoo Messenger. Make sure your webcam is plugged in and save it to your desktop. The link you want on the page is "click here"

The other suggestion I have is to find someone with Vista and is willing to help you. I have Vista Home Premium and I can plug any webcam into my USB and it goes off on a search for software.
