Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 WIN-Blk Webcam

2 Answers

Drivers will not install.

Ive tried to install the LifeCam vx-1000 many of times with the cd that came in the package. software installs fine. but the software will not load. it crashes when i open it. but thats not the point at the moment. in device manager it says there are no drivers installed for the usb webcam. ive directed it to the cd where i have found drivers on there but it says it cant find any. ive even directed it straight to the folder on the disk. but nothing.. Ive even tried installing a driver and software package from microsofts website. Still nothing..

    Hi, I have the same problem with the VX-6000 model. Tried the reinstall options however still no recognition of drivers etc.

    I have exactly the same problem. I get the large gray square with the three camera, microphone, and video symbols at the top, but nothing will work and I have to press ctrl alt delete to remove the unresponsive programme. It did work one time, and one time only. I don't know what made it work. I can tell you that a small red dot appears when you press on the symbol when it is working OK. I tried it the following day and nada, zilch, nothing will make it work. So I spent $150.00 on more memory, thinking that was the problem. What kind of fool am I. Can someone please help?

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

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

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  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: You audio and video shoud 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
