You need to provide information about your computer, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) providing these details will enable others to better assist you.
Your PSU and poor case cooling also need to be considered as possible causes or contributors to the issue.

Ok thanks, can you provide your PSU details brand and output and your Sparkle card details model and memory size please.
OK the power supply is a Power Man 350W and the video card is SPARKLE SX84GS512S3LNM GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP

You GFX card details http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814187168 a good quality brand 350W PSU would normally be ok for a card that requires a 300W as yours does but adding the strain of the HD webcam to an underpowered PSU may have just been too much for it and has possibly also damaged your video card.
