Webcam and Windows 7

I have just moved to Windows 7. Everything is fine apart from my webcam. The webcam I have no idea what make it is but wasnt expensive. But saying that iy always worked fine in Windows XP.

Anyone any ideas how I can make it again? All i get is the PC see's the webcam is there but when it turns on I only have a black screen.

Cheers

  1. What kind of cam? Look for Vista or 7 drivers on the manufacturer's website.

  3. I have the same problem in Yahoo Messenger. Yet my web cam works fine in MSN, Digsby and the viewing software that came with the cam. Please let me know if you find a solution.

  4. Start up the messaging program you use and see if it fires up, you may get lucky.
    Fortunatly new ones are pretty cheap now.
    I had an old one (chepie) in W7 beta that worked with the W7 drivers, but I had to chase drivers for Vista.
