Works perfect on laptop doesn't work on desktop computer


Solution

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
7. Reboot

Is a new installation needed?


The quickcam software is about 5-7mb, the fusion is about 11-15mb.

Fusion for Vista supports 30 frames per second (4X faster than a quick cam)

goto this link and download upgrades etc, choose the OS etc.

Webcam wont load


Hi,

If the two (cam + laptop) have not worked together before, it might be due to drivers problems. Most drivers are very OS specific. In some instances Vista has been known to have USB and/or compatibility issues. On the otherhand XP sometimes requires that you uninstall the old drivers, reboot before (re)installing new drivers, reboot before installing the hardware and allow autodetect and auto install.

If the two (cam + laptop) have worked together before and now doesn't, it might be due to hardware problems such as the cord, the cam itself or the USB port of the laptop. If your other USB devices works, then USB port(s) can be ruled out. You can verify that the camera works buy installing it in another PC.

You can verify OS compatibility of your camera as well as updated drivers at the Logitech website. Additionally, you can check for Microsoft updates/patches and fixes like this USB patch for Vista.

Should you need additional information, pls post back with your cam's brand/model, your laptop's brand/model and your OS version.

Hope this be of help. Good luck and kind regards.
