Reinstalled web camera and it still says that the camera is not found. This morning it was working and all of a sudden it died. Can you troubleshoot?

Start your computer and make sure you are connected to the Internet. Go to Control Panel > System or Control Panel > System & Security > System and access Device Manager. If everything is installed, you will see all the components listed. The webcam device should have a yellow sign. Right click it and update the drivers. Use the automatic finding technique and Windows will install the drivers if you have the software installed as well.
