Hello

1. which version of the operating system you are using on the computer?
2. What is the brand and model of the web cam?
3. don't you make changes on the computer before the show?
4. is it a built-in or external webcam?


Method 1:
You can perform a clean boot and check if it helps:

Note: After a repair, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 7 in the Knowledge Base article.

Method 2:
You can also uninstall all software associated with webcam like yahoo messenger or anything else.
Then install a unique program for the web camera and check if it works.

Method 3:
You can also update the latest drivers for the web cam on the manufacturer's Web site and check.
