    Has the software been installed for the webcam and does the webcam work with any other software on the laptop? Have you been able to get it to work at all?

Why does my microsoft lifecam vx-3000 freeze everytime I try to use it on Yahoo? The microphone works fine, but once I try to turn on the camera, it freezes after about 2 seconds.


You should check that the webcam ports for the Yahoo messenger are open on your firewall and router, and make sure the Yahoo messenger application is allowed to access those ports (defined as an exception in your firewall).
More details are available in this webcam driver troubleshooting article.

Will not work with yahoo


My Lifecam vx- 1000 wasn't working on Yahoo messenger initially. After hours of researching i came across the solution that worked for me.

In "properties" limit the USB bandwidth used - by unchecking "Auto" in configuration and decreasing the speed manually (bring it down from 6mbps to 3).

This is what worked for me, hope this helps!

Hello, I bought a HP Media Center PC and tried to install my SPC700NC. I received all your error messages and more. I found the driver by accident installed it and have used Skype and Yahoo Messenger all is well and I'm happy. Download a Vista driver (File saved is called spc700nc_37_drw_eng) with this link (copy and paste): http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=ENG&cat=PC_CAMERAS_CA&sct=WEBCAMS_SU&session=20070922170231_67.174.87.194&grp=PC_PRODUCTS_GR&ctn=SPC700NC/37&mid=Link_Software&hlt=Link_Software
