First disable the zone alarm firewall and then check.

If you still have the same problem, increase the virtual memory, uninstall and reinstall the Web cam drivers.

Thanks

How can i use my web cam


Your Dell Latitude E6400 laptop comes with a built-in webcam at the top of the LCD screen. This camera can take still pictures and record video for use with video messaging. You can access the camera via a software program already installed on the computer. This program can be accessed right from the desktop screen.

1.Turn on your Dell Latitude and click on the "Start" tab on the main desktop screen. A list of options will appear in a drop-down window.
2.Click "Dell Webcam" from the list of options in the window.
3.Click on "Dell Webcam Center" and the program will open. A capture window will appear on screen. Beneath the capture window will be a control panel.
4.Click on the camera icon to take a still photo.
5.Click on the "Record" button to record video with the webcam.
I hope you find it helpful. Best regards.

First check if ur builtin webcam is enabled in the BIOS . This is easily checked by turning on your computer and following the screen to enter BIos setup . Its usually a simple press of F2 key before the operating system screen pops up .
Second while the operating system pops up , check in the device manager if the webcam is properly installed . This is easy for windows system where you just go into Control Panel , then System Properties , then Advanced Properties , down to device manager .
Third , simply do a test on Windows Update , Maybe there is a driver conflict or a new webcam driver present and you simply download the updates for your computer

When I turn on my built in webcam, it works for a


probably this might cause by a conflicting windows update. i would suggest try to do a system restore first, restore it to the time when the webcam was working fine. after system restore if it works then i want you to disable the windows update from control panel. if this fails then proceed to uninstalling and resintalling the webcam driver.

Every time i try to use my acer crystal eye webcam, my screen turns blue and the computer shuts off.


Hello.
If your operating system is Windows XP and you are the only owner of this PC (you should have administrator's rights), then try this:
Press [START] -> [Run...] -> type DEVMGMT.MSC -> press [OK]
A new window Device Manager should appear. Locate where your webcam is listed. Right click on it and choose uninstall. Confirm Device removal with the [OK] button.
Then do the following: Press [START] -> [Run...] -> type APPWIZ.CPL -> press [OK]. A new window Add or Remove Programs should appear. Locate driver, utility or program associated with your webcam and uninstall it.
Restart your computer and install a new driver for webcam from Acer support's home page:

Blue screen appears when I instal Microsoft nx-6000 cam


hi adrian,

thank you for using fixya.

you may have encountered that blue screen of death error because of an IRQ conflict. this cane be caused by a conflicting resource for computer components. much like 1 car battery being used by 2 cars at the same time.

o have this resolved, it is best that you have the camera replaced with another model or you can try to remove other USB devices plugged into your computer until you find out what is causing the error message or the conflict to your new Life Cam.\

hope this helps.

regards.

Freeze after 1minute


your webcam might be having any irq conflict with any other device.

Right click on my computer (in winxp) then properties, click on hardware tab and see the list of hardware installed on your pc. right click on the camera software you've installed. in properties you'll notice a resource tab...see if you have any conflict message here.

If yes try reinstalling the cam.

hope it will work.
