webcam problems

i am having problems with my web cam. i have just done a reformat using windows vista. when it came to instal the webcam, it seemed to take ages using the disc so i installed it from the site (logitec) when the instal was finished and i tried to use the cam on msn and skype it refuses to work, i can use it by opening the programme and doing the settings but when it comes to using it on the chat sites it goes gay on me. on msn i get the icon next to my name but when you click on it to open just your cam, it automatically goes into video call mode. any ideas anyone? oh i forgot to mention, thinking there may be a problem with vista i then did a refromat onto windows xp and got exactly the same problem using two differnt webcams and drivers

"but when it comes to using it on the chat sites it goes gay on me".

How exactly does that manifest itself? :@)
