Question about Cameras
First make sure your card is not full, if so remove it. I have the same camera and it did that to me also. Now how i reset the camera was by chace or luck for the most part, but what i did was to turn off the camera and removed the batteries. Next i held the power button down without letting it go and at the same time inserted the batteries and closed the door all while holding down the power button, it quickly turned on and has been working perfect so far. Don't know if this might work in your situation but it's worth giving it a try? Later i bought the same model off Ebay and was selling as none working and for parts only, i got the camera and did the same trick and i got it up and running, don't know why it worked but it did.

Look at the supplied software and try the Yahoo/etc software but beware that most cameras are not built to run as a webcam. The designs are for size and wieght so the cameras tend to overheat and expire. If they don't tout the webcam feature, then you know why.

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
