    i'm having the same problem, whenever i activate the webcam, it shuts down my hard drive and restarts the machine.
    it's not a temperature problem because i only get that problem when i try to use the webcam, though it could be the camera asking for too much current and the usb port being unable to provide it. but what's weird is that it was working fine a few days ago...

    This has work for many who have had the same problem. Worth a try.

    Follow the instructions below and it will work.

    Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

    When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

    Then to use it on the Web, do this.
    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

    set it up as follows:
    Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
    Then click on the Video Settings.
    The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
    Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
    The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

    B. Yahoo Setup:
    After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

    set it up as follows:
    Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
    Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
    Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
    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:

    After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
    Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
    Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
    Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
    NOTE: Your 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.

    D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

    On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
    Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
    Next click on Enhanced IM.
    Then click on Audio Video.
    The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
    The Audi Video drop downs are
    The audio and camera should function now.
    Additional information to use with VIM settings.
    Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
    In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
    1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
    Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
    Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
    2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
    Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
    The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
    The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
    Follow the on-screen prompts.
    images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
    Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
    After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
    Hope this helps. Bud

I have a genius islim 310 webcam and it cant work with skype, can you help me please?

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

working OK ?

Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.
