Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Try this, disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work You may need this info so you can communicate with family and friends on line.



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.
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

Basically, my webcam is not working. I recently bought a Microsoft Lifecam VX-7000, and for the first week or so it worked perfectly. However, starting yesterday, it changed. I would plug in my webcam and...


Hello :

Before i start to give a solution i would like to tell you that rebooting system after any new installing or uninstalling of any software is very important .
For your Webcam , i recommend you to uninstall it's software completely and reboot your system . After that install it again and reboot your system again .
You have to do that while the Cam is connected to your computer .
After that , you need to set that software correctly before you start to run the Cam again . !
If that didn't help , then i recommend you to restore your system to the a previous point [time] when the cam was working perfectly .
If that didn't help also , then i advice you to get it back to the place where you bought it from . But don't forget to take the guarantee and the bill with you .

I hope that can help you .

rate if that was useful please !

Microsoft lifecam 2.04 not installing


Try disconnecting the camera from the computer USB port and reinstalling the software program . When the software program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so then. This is a common mistake, people do is to connect the camera up to the computer before installing the software. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Friend one of the possible problem of your computer is your operating system, it is possible that your computer might have have been infected with virus that is why there is always an error whenever you install your driver. One possible solution is for you to have an updated anti-virus program, you can have it through the internet. Then, you must run the updated anti-virus program on your computer and clean your computer, after doing so try to reinstall your driver.
Friend if the above instructions didn't work, the best solution is to reformat your operating system. Download or buy an updated anti-virus program then reinstall the said driver. In reformatting your operating system you will need the help of a technician.
Thanks! i hope i have helped solving your problem.
