Would help to know what program you are using to view the webcam.

Click the "Camera Settings" button.
There is usually a checkbox for "Invert Image" or "Mirror Vertical." Un-check this box if one exists. If you can't find this checkbox, try searching the other tabs.

I'm using a Chicony webcam on an Acer netbook using "Cheese" and I'm right side up.

Experience is what causes a person to make new mistakes instead of old ones.

Cheese for the usb (works fine) and V4L2 for the build in cam
