Win 7 -64bit operating system on refurbished Emachine dual core AMD. All latest software updates have been
done and still no video/picture. Logitech C910 Cam but blue light does not come on indicating
it is operational. Tried a new Microsoft Cam and same issue so presume it has something to do with the
system. Video in system is Nvidia Geforce 6150SE nforce 430. Any suggestions?

Yes. it shows under imaging devices and indicates working properly. They system detects it when unplugging from USB and plugging back in. Tried a Logitech Pro 9000 and a Microsoft new Cam and all the same...no video/picture. My son said when he had called tech support for emachines he was told Logitech was not compatible with the system but I find that hard to believe. Could it be an inadequate power supply? or video lacks capability of handling it?
It also shows up under sound/video/game controllers. This is an AMDIIx2 260 processor system.

Can you type "Silverlight" into the search menu. Click on Microsoft Silverlight (If you have it) and go to the tab of Webcam/Mic. See if it works.

I installed the latest Silverlight version and the cam works there. Blue light comes on too.
Does that mean it is something to do with the driver? I will remove the driver and reinstall with the link scout provided and see if that does it in the Logitech software and with Skype. Stand by...

uninstalled logitech software/drivers. Clean install and still the same issue but in Silverlight the cam works. Still unable to see picture within Logitech software and Skype.
Surely it can't be this difficult? I have installed cams on my own computers and they worked fine.

RESOLVED: Quick call to Logitech support this morning. Removal of all Video Cam software, and Drivers thru Device Mgr, rebooted machine and then without any software or driver installation was told to plug in the cam. Drivers were auto installed and worked. Then installed the Logitech software and all working GREAT.
Thanks all for your support and help~!!

Could you please give some more details ? I am having the exact same problem with my C170 webcam. Doesn't work anywhere but it is visible in Silverlight. I tried uninstalling the drivers in Device Manager and restarting, but that did not help either.
