Question about Microsoft LifeCam NX-3000 Personal Web Camera

My Windows NX-3000 Web cam wont let my PC load

Basically, I got a Windows NX-3000 Web cam for Christmas, and after installing the software, I attached the Web cam, and when I restarted my PC, it wouldn't load up past the, 'loading Windows' section, just before where you enter your password. There may be a reason it's doing it? I am using an extension male to female USB lead, because I'm using the Web cam on my PC, and it is meant for a Lap Top. But that has never been a problem in the past, using a Lap Top device on a PC I mean. Please please please please please can someone help me????? Thank you so much for taking the time out to help me :) Yours very greatfully, (coz it is a icked Web cam), yours thankfully, Chris.

    Hiya mate, nah, sorry but that's useless. 1), It's a Webcam, not a Printer, and 2), I've plugged the Webcam in, after installing the software. But I've fixed my little problem now anyway thanks mate. Basically the software that came on the CD, was for a much more powerful PC/Lap Top. So I downloaded the correct software that I needed from the Microsoft Download Centre, and now it works fine. Well, I say fine, but there is still 1 problem that I've got. I've fixed every problem that I had, apart from 1, when I open up the Dashboard controls, everything works apart from the, 'Tilt' up and down control. Everything else works, apart from that. To be able to zoom in, you need to change the resolution settings to anything apart from the highest/biggest picture, and then it'll let you zoom in. But when I zoom in, you can, 'Pan' left or right, but when you, 'Tilt' up or down, it will make the Webcam's picture freeze. I haven't got a clue how to resolve this problem? So some help with this would be very much appreciated. I have however got Microsoft Customer Support working on the issue, so if I do get a response from them soon, with an answer to my problem? Then I will post it on here, for everyone else that has a similar problem. Take care of yourself, and thanks again for trying to help me.

Normal 0 Did you connect the camera before installing the software program? If you did, disconnect the camera from the USB Port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to reconnect the printer, then plug the cable back into the USB port and it should function properly.

Hope this is of some help. Bud

  • Go to this link to get the software directly from Lenovo's website.
  • You'll be directed on a page where you can see all the drivers and software for your Lenovo 3000 Y410. Kindly look for Software.
  • Underneath you'll see the web cam software for Y410 specifically for Windows Vista 32bit Operating System.
  • The name of the software is EasyCapture, kindly click on that.
  • Afterwards, click on download here.
  • Wait until the donwload is complete, install EasyCapture.
  • When the installation is complete you'll need to restart your computer.
Before launching the software for your web cam just make sure that camera is enabled so press Fn + Esc. An icon of a camera will appear on the lower right side of your screen, if the one that appeared has a slash at middle of the camera it means camera was disabled so make sure to press Fn + Esc once again.

Installing a lifecam nx 3000. get no sound from

Download the latest software driver from the Microsoft web site. Make sure your webcam is plugged directly into the computer and not through a hub or extension cable. Start up the Lifecam software. Using the Lifecam menu (triangle in the upper right corner), set the microphone volume to max via "audio and video settings".
