    However, the webcam is working if I'm using yahoo messenger, etc. I just don't see it in my control panel as a webcam, I see one for a usb webcam device for which it is Not. IT's a built-in webcam not a removable one like you can buy seperately and install. I have no idea how to get to it to turn it on with Windows 7 Pro?

    Mikadot, there are NO yellow exclamation marks in my control panel at all. I've gone to the website for the manufacturer and there aren't any drivers available for their computers. I just need to know how to turn on my webcam without using yahoo messenger or skype, etc. I have no knowledge of the on/off button that activates the webcam without these programs using it. Got any ideas? and thanks for your response.

SOURCE: HP web cam software doesn't see built in camera

It might be a good idea to download the latest software for your Camera as it is never up to date when you purchase Webcams. Always get the latest software drivers/programs for new hardware.
Before you load up the new driver check for any special instructions that came with the cam as you may need to uninstall the old software first. Sounds like it's corrupted anyway. Good luck

Use a driver scanner tool to fix this problem. By using driver scanner you can install the accurate drivers. Also use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix registry & different operating systems errors.

I've installed windows 7 ulimate, and know I have no web cam

Try to go to LG support web page and go to their driver section. If they do not have a driver for the Windows 7 OS, try to download one for Vista, just specify whether you installed the 32 or 64 bit version. The drivers will be different. Vista is built on similiar platform of Windows 7 so it should work in most cases. If you are unsure of what bit version you installed, go to the control panel, look in "System", it will specify it on that window.

Cant get computer to recognize web cam

The Quickcam Pro 9000 is only compatible with PC, Windows XP SP2 at least.

If your virtual PC runs Windows 7, there is a known issue running it in Windows 7. If this is the case, I suggest to contact the manufacturer.

There is one made for MAC though; QUICKCAM vision PRO. Manufacturer's part number is 960-000254.

Hope this helps! Please don't forget to rate or vote. All the best!
