Do you have a VOIP program like skype running from boot up, stop it from doing this and reboot, now try it.
Do you have any IM program ( Yahoo / MSN or whatever ) running from bootup. Again stop this and reboot.
Any program that starts when windows starts and have video/webcam capabilities will effect you using the webcam.
Hope that is a little help for you

follow their instructions to resolve the issue. You may also wish to run a full virus, malware and spyware scan with your antivirus software as there may be a malicious program running in the background.

How can i install my webcam (microsoft VX-3000) if i lost the CD ?


Hi there,
You can still download the drivers from the links below for your windows
For Windows 7 LifeCam 3.2 32-bit and 64-bit for Windows 7
For Windows XP (32-Bit) LifeCam 3.2 32-bit for Windows XP SP2 or higher (excluding 64-bit)
For Windows XP (64-Bit) LifeCam 2.04 for Windows XP 64-bit
Download the drivers, unplug the camera from the computer and run the setup Lifecam3.22.exe, Install the drivers and follow on-screen instruction, Within the setup it might will prompt you to plug in the camera, connect the camera and the drivers will be loaded automatically and you will need to restart your computer once,
