Cannot install this hardware

Hi,
Am having issues installing my new MS LifeCam VX3000. I thought it might be the software
But have done this 2 times off the cd and once from online drivers.
The error message reads "Cannot install this hardware. An error ocured during the installation of the device."
I have also tried it on the 3 USB ports I have but I get the same message. Would you have any ideas ? Thanks, Karim

First of all, you might want to read this:

What system are you using?

Try doing a Google search "LifeCam VX3000 installation" and seeing if any of the documents listed helps you. I am not sure what OS you are using (Windows XP or Vista? Linux? Another?) Others have reported problems too. Be careful about which you do first during setup. Some systems require installing drivers/software BEFORE you plug in the camera, and some require you to install software/drivers AFTER you plug in the camera.

Solution

I think this is a driver issue. So make sure that if for instance you have VISTA on your other system and it worked fine with vista whereas on the lappy you got XP and you expected it to work tough luck! You got to make sure that you installed the proper driver for the OS. If you do not have this on the CD which came with it go to the lifecam vx3000 site and downlaod the driver suitable for your OS.

If still no luck with this I think I know what might solve the issue

1. Uninstall the webcam driver (from control panel ... add / remove hardware find webcam and remove)
2. Uninstall yet another time MSN Messenger
3. Disable any other built in webcam that you might have on the laptop from the device manager as you didnt say if the laptop already has a webcam built in
4. Download tunieup utilities install trial and run registry cleaner ... clean the whole registry for 2 - 3 times until its perfectly clean. Install the new driver you just downloaded
5 . Reboot
6. Install MSN Messenger
7. Reboot

Now see how that goes.

Go to Microsoft's Product page: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/digitalcommunication/productdetails.aspx?pid=001

On the right side you'll find the "Download Software" link.
Choose product, model, operating system, language, and download the driver.
