Go to device manager and see if the web cam is in their. If so right click on it>properties>details tab>drop down menu> Copy and Paste the hardware id string. And we can look for a driver for it that way.

If it is in device manager and doesn't have a yellow exclamation point on it, then the driver is installed and it could be a software problem or a bad cam.Since it seems to work on and off.

Since it worked in Vista try using the Vista driver
