Hi,

Initially, pls try to update the driver. Alternately, you could try:

  • switching back to USB 1.1 by disabling the Enhanced USB controller;
  • Cumulative update rollup for USB core components in Windows Vista http://suppor t.microsoft.com/kb/9 41600;
  • contact Microsoft. Microsoft does know about the problem, and they have developed a hotfix for it, which isn't really readily available. You have to send thema message with their online form here.They'll send you a fix within a few hours. Microsoft will send you alink and password in your email that supposedly only lasts one week.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

It wont work on yahoo or msn


Normal 0 Here is one for Yahoo Messenger.

Which ever Messenger or Skype you are using has to be setup in order to function. What Messenger are you using? I'll assume that you are using YAHOO MESSENGER and I'll walk you through the setup. All Messengers and Skype have an Audio & Video setup in them so the camera and microphone work properly with their program.
Bring up Yahoo Messenger and on the top left click on MESSENGER.
Then click on "Messenger Preferences."
Next in Category click on "Calling & Devices."
When that comes up check and check to see that Microphone is set to your audio card.
Next insure that the speakers are set to you audio card.

Then go to "Test Audio "In the Blue print, "Open the call setup Assistant" When the window opens follow the instructions. When finished your camera audio should function properly.

Also you need to go to the Video setup and do the same so it will broadcast the pictures.

You probably already know how to setup Messenger's but if you don't, hope this helps. Bud

Normal 0 How much memory do you have installed in your computer? It may need to be increased as this is likely to be the cause of your computer freezing.

Will not work with yahoo


My Lifecam vx- 1000 wasn't working on Yahoo messenger initially. After hours of researching i came across the solution that worked for me.

In "properties" limit the USB bandwidth used - by unchecking "Auto" in configuration and decreasing the speed manually (bring it down from 6mbps to 3).

This is what worked for me, hope this helps!
