Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Login/Locked Out problems Vista Ultimate(64)

After installing several pieces of software and video drivers I placed the system into sleep mode. When I tried to come out of sleep mode I could no longer login to any account including the administrator acounts. Is there an easy way to get back in without a reinstall?

The Chicony webcam can be problematic, especially when running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista.


Microsoft has released an update that will correct problems with starting the webcam after terminating "Sleep" mode.


Users may also have to install the appropriate driver or webcam software to correct webcam problems.


Dark or Black Webcam Image Problems


Toshiba laptop owners may have problems with the webcam displaying as dark or completely black a few seconds after the initial image appears or immediately after engaging the webcam.


Users should ensure that the webcam indicator light is engaged.

If not, users should run the "Camera Assistant Software" to turn on the webcam.


Low light can cause the webcam to power off and to display a dark image.

Users can tweak the light and contrast by manually increasing the lighting in the room or by turning on "Night Mode."


If these steps do not correct the dark image problem, users may have to reset the webcam itself, reinstall the "Camera Assistant" software.


Webcam Problems After Terminating Sleep Mode

"Sleep" mode powers down a number of hardware components in the laptop.


The webcam is capable of entering a non-operating system-induced sleep mode when it is not used for an extended period of time.


After the user engages Windows "Sleep" mode and wakes the laptop, the webcam may give error messages such as "Locked by another application."

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

Software problem


its because windows vista runs under 64 bit computing which has compatibility problems, u'll have to get the 64 bit cd from the retailer u bought the mobile from or atleast mention your phone manufacturer and model so i can search for its driver that accepts installation on 64 bit computers.
