My webcam doesn't work

I have Vista on my laptop Acer. My webcam is inside the pc , it's Crystal Eye, it used to work fine. But for about a month it hasn't been working proprly. The green light is on. Sometimes I can see myself in a little window. But people I call can't see me, just a black or white square.

I tried to use my webcam on Skype, ICQ, x-lite but it says "you camera is busy".
I've had Vista since november 2007 but I don't have any CD

Help! Hilfe! Aiuto! помогите!

You need to close the window where you see yourself so the camera is not in use,then go into one of the programs and configure it.After that do not open the window where you see yourself or you will make the camera busy again.

Uninstall, then reinstall with latest drivers this will be where to start, is web cam attached permanantly? if not try it on another pc if it is try a usb web cam with your laptop. In other words try to do some trouble shooting to narrow down where we need to focus our attention to get you going again
