Web cam frame freezes up

My daughter has a new web cam and when she first calls (or I call her) it seems to be fine and within a minute it starts to slow down until finally it freezes up and doesn't move at all. At the same time she is able to see us the whole time and we are able to talk back and forth. Any suggestion.

Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze up.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I access my webcam to take pictures and that sort of thing on my new hp laptop?


  1. Ensure the web cam is secured to your personal computer (PC). Most web cams use a "plug and play" principle. You plug the web cam in; it operates.
  2. Install the required software for the web cam to operate. This may involve placing a CD in one of the drives, or alternatively, downloading the software from a host site.
  3. Always reboot the computer after installing new software.
  4. Click on the desktop icon or the program icon to start the program. If the program is correctly functioning, the web cam will start producing an image of its view on the desktop. Adjust the web cam for a clear picture and the view you want.
  5. Most web programs will have a icon for "take picture." Left click on that icon or button. The web cam, like a normal camera, will then "freeze" that image and place it in a photo library.
  6. Open the photo library and examine the image just taken. Congratulations, you just took a photograph with your web cam.
Thanks for using Fixya..

My Screen freezes then goes blank


I had already done the things that your expert suggested. This morning I purchased a new web cam but the same problem occurred. I took my computer back to the shop where I had just had a new motherboard, graphics card, processor and RAM put into my computer. They managed to solve the problem as it was the problem with 'frame rates per second' that the graphics card was set at. It was on 60 but should be on 85fps. What he did was Rt Click on desktop, > properties, > settings, > advanced > monitor to change the settings. Now problem is solved.
