My old EMachine 500is went nuts on me and the display went super large. I tried everything on Control Panel, Accessability Options, etc. and nothing worked. Bottom line, I reloaded my Operating System without formatting the hard drive (40 gig partitioned 5 for C and 35 for D).

The PC is working great, except I can't get my Intel Delux WebCam back. I reloaded the software (Create and Share that came with the Cam) and it looks like it's there, but will not display. Netmeeting won't show a display either. I tested the cam on my work IBC laptop and it does work.

Any thoughts before I dump this machine and get a new one?
Thanks

Right click My Computer icon. Select Properties, then the Device Manager. Does the Camera shows under Imaging Devices? Is there an exclamation sign over a yellow background? Highlight any entries of the camera and click Remove. Once removed, close all windows and restart the computer.

NetMeeting is pretty much extinct as a conferencing program and has been replaced by MSN Messenger(which I find to be much better for chat/audio/video conferencing).

If I recall, the Intel Create & Share program is 1997 - 1998 era, so that may be part of the problem.
