I have a similar issue. For some reason, after installing the proprietary driver from Logitech, the same happened. Automatic settings don't work, but if you unmark the 3 different checkboxes in advanced settings for automatic settings, you can modify all parameters individually and you can get a decent image.

Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel

If it fails to work here concentrate on your webcam drivers and software before moving forward.

Set your webcam mic (if it has one as default)
Vista -

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN 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.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

Printing still photos from webcam


Go to Control Panel and click on Printers. Then click on your printer and set it as the DEFAULT PRINTER. It is probably set to the FAX Printer now. That is why it keeps popping up.
It should work okay after you set it as Default Printer.
Hope this helps. Bud
