hi there,

go to manufacturer website

and download the proper driver for the webcam

The manufacturer of this built in usb video device is actually microsoft and not even the TechGuys-uk could help me with this problem. At the minute their best answer is to google for the drivers needed although you will get an email response from Advent if you follow the links on their web page. Cyberlink youcam is more of an extra or an add on so to speak which just allows you to do imaging things over the picture or video actually being taken by your microsoft device.
