Hi Diana, Uninstall the cam & install it again. after that open my computer andopen the cam. If there your camera working properly then the camera & installation both are ok. After that try it in MSN & google video chat. Remember Msn always read inbuild camera for laptop. If its on in msn and same problem then there is some problem cames from MSN. For camera comfirmation you can login yahoo messenger and open the cam from there. IF you face same problem then the problem occur by internet connection. So you must check the internet connection after that all. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.
