The answer is posted by user Andreole on Amazon.com :The web is full of posts by irate purchasers of this little camera that simply couldn't get it to work. With good reason. The software that is shipped with the product is total junk. Fortunately what is available on-line is better. Here's how to solve the black screen problem on an XP. The key is not to allow the machine to install the driver for you. You must install the driver from the device manager in your system folder. The reality is that it is a nice little device ONCE you get it to work.

First, toss the software that came with the camera. Go to http://www.dynexproducts.com/pc-459-10-dynex-desktop-web-camera.aspx and download the software you actually need to run the device. (If you previously installed the software, it would be best to remove it before starting.) Download the new software, unzip it and you'll have a dynex folder containing an install file. With your camera NOT connected to your computer, install the software, including the WebCompanion2 program from ArcSoft (this will happen automatically after the Dynex software installs). Reboot if asked to do so. Hook up the camera. Abort any attempt by the computer to search for the needed driver itself. Go to your control panel and find your systems folder. In that folder, find the device manager under the hardware tab. Locate "imaging device" and locate the Dynex camera. Right click on it, then select "update driver". Again, don't let the computer find what you need. Opt to manually locate it and direct the computer to look to the dynex folder most likely on your desktop or found under Programs. Three drivers are found. Two certified and labeled "PC Cam", the other not certified and labeled "Dynex Cam". Select Dynex. That's it. Your camera should work.

Obviously, this is not the way these products should work. You should not have to go through so much grief just to install it.

Dynex TV came on black and the buttons aren't working?


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

How can i fix my hp 210-1041NR mini laptop black screen problem,


Time for a trial and error.
1.connect your laptop to a monitor or tv that has a VGA connection.Use a vga cable and connect it to your laptop then to your TV or monitor.If the screen shows display and works on your TV or Monitor ,Then its likely that your Laptop screen is faulty which can be replaced.If it does NOT SHOW on your monitor or TV then it means your GPU is faulty which then you will need to replace the motherboard on your laptop.

My Acer X193w. My monitor comes on and says cable not connected but when I connect the VGA cable the screen goes black even though it is still on.


VGA is an analog connection, so you should connect it to your monitor BEFORE starting up the PC. Otherwise it won't show anything

VA1703wb... Monitor beeps when I turn on the pc then goes black


Please read below and look at the pictures of failed VIEWSONIC nd othe monitor before try to DIY repair.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Does a dynex tv connected via vga to PC come up as a genaric monitor in windows display panel? Is this normal? or is there a way to make it identify it as a large screen tv for better resolution range?


If windows cannot identify the monitor that you have connected it will show up as a generic monitor. If you are able to find a driver for the monitor then windows will show that particular monitor instead. If Dynex has a website you can check there to see if they have a driver for your TV, or you can check under there support section to see if they suggest anything that might help.
