Can someone help me with my built in webcam?

I have used my webcam during Yahoo messenger chats, but I want to use it to take pics and make a vid. I can open it through my start menu, but it just has a black screen, no image screen or anything. When I go into Control Panel and look under Scanners and Cameras, it is not on there. Can someone please help me? Thanks you!!
