Webcam driving me mad!

  katielou78 12:24 20 Jan 08

I bought an Advent webcam and had to take it back as it was so tempremental, the image would show and then not work etc etc. I have changed it for a Microsoft Livecam VX1000. I have installed it properly and everything seems to be working apart from I'm having exctly the same problem as the last one...every time I go to use the video - either to use the video alone or to use it with a friend on MSN or Skype - I just get a completely black screen. I have looked in the trobleshooting guide and follwed the instructions but to no avail.
Does anyone have ANY idea why this is happening? I must have wasted hours trying to work it out and all I want to do is use the webcam! Could it be anything to do with the anti virus?

Thanks in advance

You have to set Skype and msn up to use it Open Skype then click on tools then on options then on video and follow the instructions

I've just tried that Pamy and the screen is still black. Argh!

you should get a little window come up after a few seconds if all is correct. Did you set it to your webcam ?
