How to Update Webcam Drivers on Your Computer to Reconnect With Friends and Family
Did you buy a webcam to keep in touch with out of town family, but now it’s not working?

It Could be a Loose USB Webcam Connection
The first step to take is checking your cables. Make sure that your webcam is indeed plugged in to your computer; usually this is via a USB cord.
