Hi. I think you might try uninstalling the webcam driver then install the latest driver for your webcam. Also try installing a newer version of the yahoo messenger. I already tried this with my laptop that has the same issue with your machine and it works for me. Hope this helps..

Hi doctergus200...

Follow the instructions below to use your webcam
Click on Start then >Control panel>hardware and sound >device manager>imaging devices>web cam....enable it
Another way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messenger,NetMeeting,etc. They will have video capabilities that will work with your webcam.

if you are using win 7 on your laptop then please check with the driver cd which you might have received with the laptop , check whether its compatible for win 7 or not - coz most laptop which launched before may 2009 - drivers are not available (win 7 ) only for webcam but still you can use the webcam (on win 7) only for on yahoo messenger .on yahoo select view my webcam or allow to view my web cam on the view tab and also ull find a small picture of a camera on the messenger box

Will not load webcam


Whar kind of OS do you have? Some web cams will not load with win 7. You need to got to the Radio shack web site to manually search the site for the drivers needed in the support area. I have the same problem with a creative live pro web cam (0884). And it isn't supported under win 7 while win xp pro does support it. Goo dluck! Email; me the model number and brand name of yor web cam and the OS of the machine you use, and if it is a 64 bit, 32 bit (or 86 Intel), and I will track down your drivers for you. OK?
