Problem installing the device,keeps restarting the pc
When i plug in the device and it shows the 'found new hardware' in the tray it suddenly switches off the pc and restarts and repeats that while it's plugged.I tried plugging the device while the pc is off or like a plug-and-play device or even in different usb ports but it made no difference.I even downloaded service pack 1 in case of a problem with the usb drivers but still makes the same.I have windows xp.Does anybody has any idea of what i can do?

Re: Problem installing the device,keeps restarting the pc
You will probably have to install Service pack 2 to overcome this problem, which you should install for security reasons anyway.
If a driver came with the DVD writer, this should generally be installed first, then the writer connected into a USB port.

during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager >
View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows

If it found the drivers already in the windows so it run you device

When you installed the drivers, did you do so after loggin in as ADMINISTRATOR?? This is vital otherwise it will not work. Also a quote from the manual goes like this quote -"Exit the “Found New Hardware Wizard” by hitting the cancel button. Unplug the VGA webcam from the USB. Insert the software CD into the drive tray. Follow the software installation instructions. Once all software is installed (direct X, HP Web Cam drivers, ArcSoft VideoImpression, ArcSoft Photo Impression), close the HP Webcam window and RESTART the PC. After restarting the PC, plug in the VGA Webcam and run ArcSoft Video Impression to capture a new video." unquote. Hope this helps..................sodeep
