Start- right click my computer - properties - hardware - device manager. Click on the + signs to expand links, find your camera, is there any question or exclamation marks showing, is so, right click & see what it says.
If nothing shows up as wrong, un-install your cam in device manager, restart your computer,(cam unplugged) when up & running, plug your cam back in & system will see it as new device & install it.
Hope this helps your issue.
Have a nice day.

Whenever I click on the lifecam icon to open up the program for the webcam all that shows up is a black screen where I should be seeing me.


1) Is the camera switched on, check see if there's a small switch on top of the camera.
2) Try a different USB port.
3) RMB My computer, Select manage - device manager - check if there are any yellow alarms. Specifically for you camera, the driver may need reloading.

I have a canon power shot sd 1000 and I can down load pics but the videos don't download


You don't specify details on what happens when you try to download your videos, but it's usually a software error that causes this type of problem. Regardless, there is another better way to download pictures and videos, and that is by using a portable USB card reader (please see this link). Card readers are available everywhere for a couple dollars (try Amazon first). They are a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and videos than using a cable attached to your camera.

You can download the driver here :- http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/236296/microsoft-lifecam-nx-6000-vx-1000-vx-3000-vx-6000-driver-1.21-windows-xp-free-download.html
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.
