To take a picture from my webam I go onto 'My Computer' click the webcam then the screen comes up.
But when I take the picture it just goes black.... and stays black.
Why would this be? How would I change it?
Is there any simple software I could download just to take pictures?
Thanks

Ahh taking pictures of ourselves are we..!

Try going into Paint, click File, and go to 'From scanner or camera'. Does that work?

And you can see yourself OK before you attempt to capture it, ja?

- Make/model of the webcam?
- How long has this been occurring?
- Did it not come with any bundled software?
- Check the manufacturers website for up-to-date drivers/software
- System Restore to a point when this didn't happen

There are many generic webcam programs around. Try this one if you want.
