First of all, we need to check whether the Webcam is listed in the Device Manager or not.

Follow the instructions to access Device Manager in Vista :

Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
In the window that opens, click on Device Manager in the left pane of the window.
The Device Manager opens in a seperate window.

In the Device Manager window, you sholuld be able to locate the Webcam which sould be under Imaging Devices or Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

If it is listed, you need to right click on it and select Disable to disableit.

Now, right click it again and select Enable.

Now, try using the webcam.

If the error message still appears, try stopping the Windows Media Center Receiver service which will be actually used when any video capturing device is being used like a TV Tuner Card in Notebooks.

Click on Start and type Services in the Search box.

Right click on the Services among the results in the top of the start menu and select Run as administrator.

This will open the Windows Services window.

In this, locate the Windows Media Center Receiver Service and right click on it and select Properties.

In the Startup type, select Manual and click on Stop button to stop the service.

Now, close the window and restart the Notebook.

You should be able to use the webcam normally.

Coming to the query with the Finger Print Reader, you can find the required information from the links below :

Describe your how to install logitech quickcamProblem i install already but my msn can use the web cam


Disconnect your webcam
Close all programs
Uninstall current software
Restart computer
Download software from Logitech website - find your camera and click on the picture to move to the support page for that model

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

Older models on page 2 - look for the link at bottom right of page 1 "Still can't find your product?"
Select your OS and download software
Upload software - you may not want the Logitech chat feature but do opt for the desktop shortcut
Connect your webcam when prompted
Make sure you have the support software installed for logitech webcams (DirectX 9)

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'
