  1. I have just did a fresh installation of Windows XP on my pc, now I notice in Device Manager>Other Devices I have a yellow question mark next to something called "CIF Single Chip" what is this, is it needed and how do I correct it?

    Do you have a webcam? Sometimes that can be a webcam that has no driver installed.

    means you're missing a driver for that device.
    what is it listed under?

    It's a bit difficult for us as we don't know which webcam you have.

    I have also done a fresh install of XP and cannot get my webcam to work even though I have the installation CD.

    How can I get the driver entitled "CIF Single Chip"

    I don't have the original packaging and the camera itself has nothing on it. The CD has shows "SmartCamera Ver 2.1"
