Check out the Microsoft support website for lifecam errors
Check if Microsoft has posted a solution on your computer ( if you have the necessary OS)
Start > Control Panel > Classic View > Problem reports and solutions
Also go into your Device Manager - expand the 'Imaging' file and see if you have a driver problem shown as a yellow triangle with an (!) inside
If so, right click on the text of your webcam and 'update driver software'
Use the internet option when prompted.
If all else fails - close all programs - disconnect webcam - uninstall webcam software - restart computer and download latest software from Microsoft Support download centre - which should incorporate all the patches.
