Uninstall Windows Vista. Do a fresh install of Windows XP Professional Sp2. Download XP drivers and install camera. Many software programs have trouble initializing in Windows Vista. Good luck!

Check to see how much memory you have installed in you computer. If it low amount this will cause the camera to freeze the computer. Hope this helps. Bud

Nx-6000: no image under Vista

It turns out you need to go to Microsoft's hardware download page and download the full (117MB!) driver and software for this neat camera. The software will ask you to install Microsoft Live (aka MSN Messenger), but you don't have to.
When you see the dialog boxes that explain, setup, and test your camera and microphone - you got it!
Be sure to select the camera from the Skype options/video setup page, and all the other options. Be sure to start you camera if you had set it up such that it does not start automatically.

Uninstall the Microsoft LifeCam and disconnect your camera.
Go to this site:,en

Download the software for the QuickCam Ultra Vision 5. Save to your hard disk and then run the program.
Reinstall the LifeCam software and then plug in the camera. LifeCam will use the Logitech Drivers and your camera should work fine.
