Question about Logitech QuickCam for Notebooks Pro Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Web Cam Freezing Computer

When using my Logitech Quickcam for Notebooks on my laptop with Windows Vista on Skype it regularly causes my computer to freeze leaving the only option of manually turning off the computer using the power button.
The only solution logitech offers is to download new drivers but I already have the most up to date versions.
Has anyone else had this problem or know of a solution? I wondered if it was a problem with Vista?
Thanks

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

  5. To Chat, click on MESSENGER and then
  6. After make necessary settings, click on APPLY, then OK.
  7. Then click on MESSENGER and go to my WEBCAM ready to use.
  1. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Yes, it works with Vista.
