Perhaps your pc cannot accomodate your webcam due to many applications you install in your pc .pls check your avaible memory. if its not capable to carry the webcam,then you have to erase some past data/files to your pc,..

Normal 0 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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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 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

What is the advanced settings on my cam supposed to be?


The Logitech QuickCam is a webcam for Windows-based notebooks and laptop computers. The device also works on desktop computers, but contains the mounting hardware for portable computers. The webcam includes a USB connection, utility application and the device driver so your notebook's operating system can recognize the device. Like other webcams, you need to focus your Logitech QuickCam so individuals viewing you on the Internet or through other means can see you clearly. Open the Logitech QuickCam utility program by clicking on the program's icon on your computer's desktop or by clicking "Start," "All Programs," "Logitech," " Logitech QuickCam." Click on the chat client or website you are using the Logitech QuickCam on if you are not using the Logitech QuickCam utility. Turn the webcam's focusing ring on the front of the camera to the left or right slowly to focus the camera. You will see your image in the Logitech QuickCam preview window on your notebook's screen. Rotate the webcam's head, if needed, to center your image in the preview window. Hope this helps.

My logitech webcam won't work in msn messenger....in messenger when i try to make a video call...it says I need to buy or install a webcam? what's the deal? heeeelp


Hi Marilyn,

Have you installed the Logitech Quickcam program? If you did then open the application and select the instant messenger(i.e. MSN, SKype, Yahoo) that you will be using the camera.

If you have note yet installed the Logitech Quickcam application then I suggest you disconnect the webcam and run the software first.

Logitech quickcam gi ves me fuzzy picture when i


A bit of fuzziness is expected especially when you move. How fuzzy depends on speed of your computer and the capture ability of the camera. I have quickcam that is 1.3 megapixel. Stationary objects are pretty clear, but all motion is fuzzy and distorted. Move slowly to help minimize the distortion. When using instant messaging or Skype, set camera to a smaller image size for faster compression and transfer.
