Re: Camera not working!
Just disconnect camera and uninstall software, if there is no programme showing as running (press Ctrl/Alt/Delete to see it there is); if not,then it's software problem.
If there is a relevant programme running click on it then click 'end task'
Re install software and re connect your camera.

AFTER INSTALL THE SOFTWARE THAT IS COME WITH YOUR CAMERA GO TO CONTROL PANEL AND LOCATE HARDWARE IN THERE YOU WILL FIND YOUR CAMERA OR AFTER INSTALL THE SOFTWARE THE INSTALLATION WILL MAKE A DESKTOP SHORTCUT JUST OPEN IT AND START USING IT.
Put your PC on and left click at setting; control panel; and add hardware wizard. Just follow the instruction, and find out if your labtec camera is configured in your O.S.(operating system - xp, 07, etc.). Click to install it. Just follow the instruction prompted by your PC. Otherwise, you can install it in your PC through a Labtec CD software driver installer. Or get connected to the internet get your download. Just type at the search engine (Download for software driver Labtec (961307-0914) Camera). Get your download and install it in your PC.
You microphone is working, your family camera is working, your camera is not working.
if you installed the correct drivers and program that came with the camera, the program should have a walk through while installing, it should test the settings of your camera.
If not open the labtec program and test the settings. If there is no Labtec program installed on your PC, you will need to install that software.
This is very strange. It sounds like a driver problem, but you said you got the latest drivers from Labtec. I would go to Labtec's support area and copy what you posted her and show it to them to see if they know of any similar issues.
