Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer

They didn't do a good job with differentiating these ones. Easiest way to tell is by the color.

SOURCE: Driver for logitech Quickcam Express V-UH9 for windows 7

I'm afraid there is no solution. Logitech took the decision not to support older webcams like this in Windows 7. If you look at the driver matrix on the following site, you'll see there is no Windows 7 driver... http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3428

I would suggest you disconnect the webcam and use an uninstaller to remove the logitech software such as the free version of "Revo" uninstaller.

If your windows 7 system is set up as 32 bit instead of 64, that's why it doesn't work. according to the logitech website that camera will only work with windows 7 in 64 bit mode...otherwise it won't.

My logitech webcam express doesn't work with my windows 7


If you still have the packaging and or manual for this web cam check with those to make sure that it is compatible with your computer. Window 7 is great with older technology but it can't always detect the right software for certain products. If the camera came with driver software try installing that often more times than not the installation software will notify you if your product is not compatible with the computer. I you don't have the software for the web cam you can go onto the logictech support page and they have a great out detect search function. http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support-downloads

What operating system are you using? This camera is not supported for Windows Vista or Windows 7. This could be your problem. It is an older camera, you may need to just get a new one to work with Vista or 7!
