    Installed on win XP (SP3?), my VX-1000 won't show any image/video (in it's software and messenger, haven't tried other software yet). The sound seems to work though.

    I tried to install the latest drivers (for the webcam and for my graphics card), I tried an older driver (for the webcam), but it still doesn't work. I know the camera hardware is not a problem cause it works on my other (vista) computer.

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
