You just need to download a usb webcam. Install the drivers and connect the webcam. To be able to use the webcam for yahoo messenger just go to the messenger > preferences. choose webcam and set your camera using the camera settings and camera source. after that click ok. then click messenger then my webcam. For skype click tools > options then click video settings you would already see if it works. when you talk to people just click the webcam button or to start video calls right away just right click the name then click video call. For other software, just look for the options.

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
