Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera
I got it a few months ago and it has never worked on my actual home computer which isn't a laptop what do i do?
my laptop is vista and home is xp
I think this is a driver issue. So make sure that if for instance you have VISTA on your other system and it worked fine with vista whereas on the home you got XP and you expected it to work tough luck! You got to make sure that you installed the proper driver for the OS. If you do not have this on the CD which came with it go to the lifecam vx3000 site and downlaod the driver suitable for your OS.
If still no luck with this I think I know what might solve the issue
1. Uninstall the webcam driver (from control panel ... add / remove hardware find webcam and remove)
2. Uninstall yet another time MSN Messenger
3. Disable any other webcam that you might have from the device manager as you didnt say if the you already got another webcam on home pc.
4. Download tunieup utilities install trial and run registry cleaner ... clean the whole registry for 2 - 3 times until its perfectly clean. Install the new driver you just downloaded
5 . Reboot
6. Install MSN Messenger
