YouCam not detecting Webcam

When I open up YouCam it says "No webcam detected. Try plugging in a webcam to your computer now. If you care using an integrated camera, make sure that it is turned on.  I have a HP G62 Notebook PC with the webcam at the top of the monitor and I don't know how to turn it on.  It was working a few weeks ago and I'm not sure what has happened since then.

Re: YouCam not detecting Webcam

Hi,

Have you gone to Device Manager to see if the webcam is being recognized by the OS?

Re: YouCam not detecting Webcam

Hi,

It should be under the Imaging devices section.

Re: YouCam not detecting Webcam

Doe not having an 'Imaging Devices' section mean that the computer isn't recognizing my camera.  I don't see how that happened since I haven't done anything with it besides take a few pictures and then ignore it for a while.

That would seem to be the case. I just checked three of my PCs with webcams and Win7/Vista and each has an Imaging Devices section.

Re: YouCam not detecting Webcam

Is there any way to fix this? I would like to get my camera working again, I haven't disabled it or anything and have no idea why it decided to stop working one day.
