When i plug in my usb web cam into my pc, nothing at all happens or pops up. what do i do?


the pc could not recognize your web cam, try to plug out your usb web cam and blow or wipe the usb of your usb webcam. also try to plug it in to other usb port of your pc. if nothing happens, maybe the web cam it is the problem. and just to make sure that the web cam your using is the problem, try other usb web cam to see if its working on your pc. if the other web cam works on your pc, the web cam your using is damage, and if the other webcam is also not working, the usb ports of your computer is the problem.
thank you for choosig fixya. if you have other question regarding to this problem, just post it.

Ok i have this mouse that does not work when i plug it into the usb port. the mouse dosent light up or any thing... what do i do?


First thing to do is to determine which one is at fault : is it the mouse, or the other way around?
Here's how :
  • Try another (known working) USB port
  • Try the mouse onto another known working computer
  • Try another known working mouse
  • Try another known working USB device (flash drive, etc) on USB port
Typically, the mouse needs replacement if it still does not work with another known good usb port or computer. If it's the other way around, then you may have USB port issues with your system.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Computer not recognizing web camera


The only other thing that I would suggest you try to do is (if possible) goto another PC or maybe a friends PC and plug the web cam in. If it does the same thing then the web cam no longer works. If it does work, then you may want to try another USB port on your PC.

Web cam is not responded


here is a check list that might help you . first if your using windows xp you must have atleast service pack 2 installed first , vista didnt have any requirments . also make sure your usb drivers and motherboard drivers have been updated properly for your motherboard . make sure you have installed the proper webcam drivers for this model ... i would unplug any other usb devices and try it by itself . There may be some sort of conflict with the camera and another device. but from what i read its not a very good cam its considered generic and sold under a few different names . anyway if still problems , if its new i would return it if possible and get a logitech which is a very user and software friendly webcam

    USB does not register on computer


    tech support for MI has been very good to me in the past on at least two occasions, one regarding a IC50 webcam in which the driver that was causing static in the image, and a MI wireless mouse that has worked fairly well since I got it about year ago. But it was a ***** for a blind man like myself to setup and configure.
    Assuming the driver is still installed and you are sure that it is the correct driver for the cam, I would suggest removing mouse and keyboard just to see if that alliviated the webcam detection issue. I have seen circumstances in the past in which devices would basically take over the USB disallowing the use of other devices. This may not be happening but it is worth a shot in the dark. In the meantime, try to give MI another day or two for an answer. Here is the website just in case you are not getting the driver from their main website as it can be very difficult to find for most people..
