Wow, thank you for the picture. I had no idea where to look for the loose connection. Once I popped the bezel open, I used a small screw driver (not the best choice cause I saw some tiny sparks when I pressed up on connector) my computer dinged and the installing new hardware bubble popped up. Once done, I checked Device Manager and there it was. After that, I launched YouCam and everything is working perfectly. Thanks a bunch.

It is indeed one of the symptoms. When the connector is loose and you get the webcam not detected message, it will also be missing in Device Manger. Reference M-Wilson above where after reconnecting, it appeared in the Device Manager list (under Imaging Devices).
