PC freezes when my friend connects her web cam.

Hi, can someone help my friend, please. When she connects her cam to her laptop her computer freezes immediately and she has to do a beboot. This happens more frequently than not. She has tried an uninstall/reinstall without any success. I don't know what PC she is using but I do know she is using 'Vista' Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Well when me and my friend are doing web chat on Skype is freezes and says we have bad connections how do we fix it because its really annoying and we cant do anything well we dont know what to do

Hi munchkinelle,
This could be because of heavy traffic and / or heavy usage on the bandwidth which has been allocated to you.

I would advice you to quit all the other programs accessing the internet , including any updates which have been set in the background.

This should help a great deal to you as well as your friend

Hope this helps ...:)

Your computer is not connected to the network when cam talk

In order to use the video call feature both parties have to be in Yahoo Messenger 10.
If you both have Yahoo you can use the webcam
If you are cross chatting - eg Messenger X MSN, only basic IM will be available

Skype video

Try to obtain newest and latest version of skype first. Problem may be with your web cam as it may not be properly connected with your pc or it has no proper driver install, please try reinstalling driver and check.

Further, before you install driver please check the settings from skype menu to see if they are set properly.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Why doesn't my work wok properly?

The problem could be the speed of the internet and also could be the computers memory. Try to reduce the size of the web cam window and also the speed and drop down the quality in the messenger. Try to use only messenger when using web cam not other programs. If this doesn't work try to reinstalling the yahoo messenger.

Yahoo freezes when my webcam is applied

ok my friend it depends on what version of yahoo you are using

so try updating yahoo and then try updating internet explorer if still having the same issue then the last thing to do is to reinstall the webcam drivers.

Web cam


Is's ok to have only one cam.

You can see the video from your oposite if they have a cam.
Or if only you have a cam the other party should be able to see you.
