I had this problem andi am running on xp and 1gb ram too.

There are several things i did and to be honest i am not sure which one worked, all i know is, it is working just fine now.

First i changed the settings for the level of Virtual memory on my pc. I put the levels up and also made the minimum and maximum levels the same. It's nice to have lots of memory on your pc but it does help to tell the pc it can use it wiithout asking.

Next i went and got a new graphics card as i found mine was running way below par.
Also, if you use on board graphics you will never have a trully smooth running pc.

I have found that graphics are the main cause of slow, glitchy pc's. Big bright pretty pictures on your desktop will mean that your pc has to work harder. Its usually quite usefull to go into advanced settings on your pc and remove all the silly add on visual styles.I remove all but the bottom one in the list. Then i get to keep the pretty xp look, but my pc doesn't get slowed down.

If you try making some or all of these changes, you may find you camera working better.

I have a new webcam - mikomi DC - 7130 & its installed on my laptop but will not show up on my msn, can anyone PLEASE help?


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN)
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

Mikomi DC-7130 webcam worked on windows xp but wont work on windows 7, cant find any updated drivers


You could try using a Vista driver, most of the time they'll work in Win 7.

Let us know if that works.

DC-7130 not working with yahoo messenger


See section B. Yahoo in info below.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I bought a mikomi dc-7115 webcam and all i can see is a white sreen and everyone else thats on msn yahoo and frogcam iv installed and uninstalled 6 times and its still the same


Apparrently after looking for this product, I could not find much of a lead to the manufacturers website.

The biggest problems with mikomi models are driver issues.
The worst part is Mikomi does not have an official website due to the fact that a company argos a company retailer from United Kingdom and a part of Ireland.

If your product came with a Cd with drivers and you installed the product the proper way, it should work with no problem.
Usually drivers will give you utility tools to test your webcam.

If that doesnt work, check the system requirements for the webcam. Make sure your computer meets those requirements. Then Proceed by making sure your system is up to date. ESPECIALLY the Messengers you would like to use your Cam on. This usually does the job.

If the above does not work, try removing Messengers, Re-intalling a newer up to date messenger...
(some of the newer were made to work on up to date messengers)... Then proceed to re-install your webcam.

Lastly try cables.

These are possible solutions to getting the webcam to work. I hope this works

If not i hope someone can give you another great solutions. Some issues are harder to fix than others. Driver issues can be complicated because it can be many things. or order of installation.

Wish you luck
