  1. Have you made sure that all the drivers are installed? What model of webcam? What kind of computer? Does it work with other programs? OS - 32 or 64 bit?

    With more info, we may be able to help.
  2. How to set up your webcam in Windows Live Messenger:

    - In Windows Live Messenger click on the menu, select Tools and then select Audio and Video setup.

    - Click Next.

    - Select your speakers or if you're using a headset check the box. You can play a sound to hear how it is and you can adjust the volume, then click Next.

    - Select your microphone and observe the green bar that shows the volume level. If needed you can adjust the microphone volume then click Next.

    - See yourself in the webcam and then click Finish.

    - Now, click on Tools and then on webcam settings.

    - Here you can adjust settings while you view yourself. Adjust brightness, contrast, white balance, and saturation.

    - You can also click on the Advanced tab and change any of those settings that you want.

    - Click Apply, then Close and you're done!
