Is my web cam bust?
If you are using XP SP2, the drivers of the webcam should be installed automatically after connecting the webcam to the usb port.
Try this, connect the webcam to the usb port. Go to DEVICE MANAGER(how to go to device manager--------go to control panel, at classic view Click System, click Hardware, Click Device Manager. In the Device manager page you should see a YELLOW QUESTION MARK if the webcam is detected by your computer. If this is the case your webcam is ok, you just need drivers for the device.
To check for drivers:
1:insert webcam cd to pc, open my computer
2:right click your cdrom drive, click explore. You should see the setupexe folder and another folder for drivers. You need the drivers to make your webcam work. Download drivers from the website of your webcam then try to install it.
