Re: windows 8 skype webcam not working?

What do you mean by display drivers? Where do I find it? I am absolutely clueless, so I need some help.

Windows Key +X > device manager > Display Adapter If it says ATI RaDeon HD series 5000 ( Microsoft corporation WDDM v1.20 then the drivers are provided by Microsoft and the Camera and Video Doesn't work in the Metro App style , even You tube videos will not work in IE 10. So You gotta change it . Please Tell me your Display adapter Series (Graphic Card)

Re: windows 8 skype webcam not working?

Thanks so much for your help and quick responses. My display adaptor is not what you have mentioned. It is Radeon but AMD not ATI. But I still experience the problem where my video call does not work.
