This might be the time to reinstall the camera drivers and/or the software since we have cleared up the chipset driver issue.
Usually the camera software/drivers get installed first and then you attach the camera.
Read the specific instructions to see what they want first.

EDIT: I mean webcam

On every USB device I have ever installed you have to install drivers first. Then normally the system will then have to be restarted for drivers to take affect.
Then and only then would you plug in the device.
Another option is to try and install the drivers on another system and then plug the camera in. If this works then the issue is not the camera.

What is the make and model of the camera? There is a slight possibility that the install software is not working correctly.

OK this is perplexing for sure. The only other thing I can think of trying is going into the BIOS\CMOS and making sure the USB 2.0 has not been disabled.

To do this follow these steps.

Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced or Onboard area and click Enter
Look for USB 2.0 and highlight that click Enter
Now follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to Enabled if not already set that way.
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.

I'm starting to think there is a compatibility issue somewhere. Has this camera ever worked before on this system? If not the Cam may not work with your mobo/hardware or perhaps there is a software conflict. Any local Anti-virus or personal FW blocking/conflicting with the cam? Try disabling them and then do a fresh install.

Also, you said the cam works fine on the other computer. Is this computer the same or any outstanding software running on the comp that doesnt work as opposed to the one that does work with the camera. Try looking for some inconsistencies.

Hi, I seem to have solved it somehow. I uninstalled it and plugged my old camera in and it downloaded video drivers and audio drivers and lots of other things im not sure what they was and this camera then worked, i rebooted and plugged the new camera in and it seems to be working now, maybe my video drivers was missing or something? or maybe the drivers for my new webcam was wrong as someone said before. well this solved it anyway , at last :) Thank you all for your help with everything, hopefully everything should be fine now :)

Water over the dam now, and its resolved. Evidently it looks to be something with the video. I am surprised that the new webcam didn't want new drivers. Go figure, its another mystery from microsoft.

Thanks for all the help from those involved.

Came back and visit us again sarahs.
