To setup web cam you need some tools first. They are Web cam, cable and its driver software. Then follow these steps

1. Then the driver CD in your CD Rom.

2. Run the installation process and finish it.

3. Connect web cam with computer through USB port.

4. Windows will automatically detect its audio, built in microphone, camera etc.

5. When all installation process is finished then restart your computer.

6. After installation run driver software. It will enable web cam and prepare to work.

This is the way you can install web cam in your computer.

You have installed the webcam according to the requirements. Most probably it is not working on the Yahoo. Did you try it on any other software ? Please try to install the software for your webcam. If you have lost the webcam software CD then follow the below link to install the universal cam software.

From the above link you can check whether your webcam is working or not. It will clear if there is any technical fault in your webcam. You can also try your webcam on SKYPE. Hopefully it will work. 

There might be some problem with your internet connection which is not allowing display on the yahoo messenger.

I hope installation of universal cam software will clear the picture.
