USB Port is not detecting my webcam

  1. Whenever I plug my webcam into the USB port it never picks it up. I have installed the drivers for the webcam and everything like that but when the screen prompts me to plug the webcam into the USB port it says there is no webcam plugged in.

    I check the device manager and I see underneath 'other devices' a yellow question mark saying 'USB'.

    Any help is appreciated greatly!

    In the Device Manager:

    Right-click on the item with the yellow question mark.

    Click Properties.

    Click on the Driver tab.

    What is listed there?
