Normal 0 Disconnectthe Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded softwareprogram. When the program asks you to connect the camera to theUSB port, do so and it should work.Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the cameraon your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Yourfriends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

  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.

MSI Laptop Error- 0xoooooe9 "This error can be caused by unplugging a removeable storage device blah blah blah.... it wont get off the error screen and start windos. What do i do?


Ok, this error has occurred and will continue to occur, because a drive was removed, from the system, before data that was meant to be written/read, to/from the "Drive" was completed.
The only way around this is to reconnect the device so it can Finish what it is doing. If you have been using a USB drive, then you need to reintroduce that back to the system.
Now if you cannot, do this, then I would suggest that you simply perform a system restore. That will hopefully restore you system to where it was BEFORE this all happened.
Before is a a link how to do the system restore.

Not saving to desktop as ''problem occured Close and try


Let's try to isolate the problem first

1) Try downloading something different from a different website. If you succeed, then there is a problem with the original file or the connection to the original website. If you get the same error message, go to the next step.

2) Check the disk for errors. Run chkdsk c: /r. It will tell you that it cannot lock the disk blah blah blah. Anwser "yes" and restart. It will take quite a while to check the disk, but it will fix all fixable errors. Then, try again. If it doesn't work, go to the next step

3) Do you have a "download accelerator" installed and running (e.g. GetIt, Donaload Accelerator Plus, etc??) Some websites do not work well with download accelerators. Don't ask me why. They just don't. Either disable it or uninstall it and try again.

4) Try a different browser. If you're using Internet Explorer, try using FireFox or Opera

Please, report back to see if any of these helped.

Xp not install in compaq presario cq50 139wm


In Windows XP, The STOP: 0×0000007B: error often occurs if you move a hard drive that contains Windows XP to another computer or if you have just installed a newmotherboard or drive controller. This error occurs in these cases because your registry does not contain driver entries for the current motherboards drive controller. So in effect, the device driver that Windows XP is loading from the registry will not work with the new drive controller.

Fixing the STOP: 0×0000007B: Error:
The easiest approach to fixing the error is to locate download and install the latest hard drive controller driver for your motherboard. In many cases the driver in question controls a ATA or SATA device.
There are other problems including viruses that can cause this error and information regarding these causes can be found HERE

I have a problem installing my Vimicro USB PC Camera 305 on my Windows XP. I start to install but still doesn't work. I try to uninstall but I cant do that from CONTROL PANEL pls tell me how to do that....


It is a pain.
Try the following. Re-run install, insert CD and it should start to load?

The exception is it should come up and say do you wish to uninstall Blah blah . Click Yes. When finished it will want to restart.

Before restart, remove usb webcam. restart.
Go to my poota/programs/and look for the camera file/ it may have been removed in that no problem/ if file is still there/right click/remove. Restart.
Complete restart/then setup CD Webcam again. Sit with it click Ok when asked even not a recognized prog, still click continue.
After completion. Reinsert usb of webcam! wait till it loads, asking silly Q, continue. till finish.
If sucessful, find it in programs if you didn't click for desktop icon?
Startup screen should show small white screen, couple of Q's it can't do something, ignore. You will end up with blank white/black square.
Click menu at top, click devices, dropdown click your cam name, should then open to a larger screen. If you need to alter things, click options.
All this of course if it loads.

Best of British.

Acer Aspire 5920 problem


Your best play is to restore the machine to the factory settings. To do this, power up the machine and immediately press ALT+F10. From there you will enter Acer eRecovery Management which will give you the option of returning the machine to the factory settings.

WARNING:
This will erase everything you had stored on the machine!! ie data files, pictures etc...

RESTARTING COMPUTER(AMIGOS)


hi powee;
have you recently installed some device driver?

This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time.

here is the link;
