Hi soleillee,

Yeah this is most likely a driver problem. You see the drivers from windows xp wont work with windows vista. It is very likely that your camera was not made with vista drivers if it is more than a year old. Unfortunately without a windows vista drivers your camera wont work. so you have two options:

1- find out if the camera has a vista drivers and install them
2- buy a new camera ( i know its frustrating)

And if i may recommend the logitech cameras, they are sturdy and the mid range ones have great picture, and best of all there tech support is easy to find when you want a new driver.

Music wont play through media player due to installing web cam


Hello my friend, i had encounter same problem as you have when i on one of my client's computer. You can reinstall the driver of your sound card. When you installed the program driver of your cam the sound card is affected due to some factor either the sound card is currupted. So my solution are the following: 1. Go to my computer icon then right click it the click properties. Then go to Tab name Hardware then click device manger then check if the sound driver is not installed or it is being corrupt. Then proceed to the reinstallation of your sound card driver. But if the sound card driver is installed then reinstall you windows media player. If you don't have installer then try this link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx 2. Donwload Windows media player codec and update the codec of your Windows Media Player. try this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=06fcaab7-dcc9-466b-b0c4-04db144bb601&displaylang=en
Hope this help fix your problem. If you need more help just contact me or reply to this post. Thanks

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

Usb stopped working


hello there! thanks for using Fixya.com!

I guess you already tried everything and that's bad sign. Well, I can suggest to you that check another USB cable and try it. If its still same problem, better consult your technician so that he can check it personally so that we will not do anything harm to your laptop. that's better i guess!

only thing you have to do is to re-install your web-cam driver.
  • Goto LG site. LG
  • Select your region/country.
  • Go to support/download

  • And see if there is driver for your cam. If yes then download. Uninstall your previous one. Install the new driver downloade and enjoy.

My web cam


uninstall the software for that camera. then restart your computer. after restarting, re-install the drivers for that camera.
