Try a system restore if you are using XP. If you do not know how just let me know.

    Yes. Vista has system restore as well. Go to the Help area on your PC and search for System Restore. You can choose a restore point ( a day before the problem started) and roll your computer back.

Sony vaio notebooks web cam is delayed or freezes onmsn


Is it only on MSN or also in other programs? If only MSN, try reinstalling MSN or try using an older version of MSN.
Maybe a webcam sharing program can also help.

(ii) Then, double click the MSN icon and log on.
(iii) Click on the Tools menu, then click on the audio/video tuning wizard. Then, click Next to start the wizard.
(iv) On the first wizard page, under Camera, click the web cam then click Next.

Performing all the above steps will configure MSN to use with the web cam.

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

My web cam wont work


No, most likely some resident software is accessing the camera, or the camera needs updated drivers. try updating to the newest software and make sure the cam software isnt booting up before the MSN client
