Make sure your webcam is set to 'default', and that yahoo is set to use the 'default device'.

I tryed hooking up my easy cam on my new laptop its a window vista and it keeps saying d-link cif webcam and thats not the cam how do i fix this cause i cant get on cam nor take pics

Most Web Cams will NOT work with VISTA !!!
Microsoft forgot to add driver's in Vista for most hardware. r you need to buy a cam specifically for Vista and if you do it will work on other operating systems as well...

Quite a few of these problems are addressed in Windows 7...

Good Luck!

Web cam installation

if you use vista
some problems arrise with vista
vista is in its infancy stages right now some hardware and software does not work with vista makin it imposible to work with
this is something windows is working on
i dont know how long it will take but theres alot of non compliant vista software and hardware there working on right now to be compliant with there Os system this is a patience process
what i tell people is that if windows update hasnt made an update for it they will its just matter of time before they get to all products
im waiting a year for my vista to come out that way i know most of bugs are worked out
