  • Step 1. Try using a different browser than the one you use all the time. Perhaps your software test passed a long time ago in another browser.
  • Step 2. Make sure the webcam is plugged into the USB connector. When you reconnect the webcam, you should see a particular picture or hear a sound on the PC screen.
  • Step 3. Some web camera models have an "ON/OFF" switch, so ensure it is set to the "ON" position.
  • Step 4. Using the model number would help if you also tried downloading the latest drivers for your webcam model.
