Problem with the microphone ?


One usefull thing look out for is the os the webcam is made for. I hade the same problem with a wireless dongle. It worked propperly but after a few munites it crashes. I eventually found out that it was a driver incompatibillity os eventhough the driver was for my spesific os i am using. So have a look a the os the cam is made for. You are using vista, and eventhough there might be drivers for vista,they do not always work perfectly. My solution would be to to check for the lates updated drivers for the webcam and try installing them and have a look if it works, it worked with me.

Please rate this suggestion

Cannot set up driver for web cam put disc in cd-rom & wizard will not install hardware says it is not compatable i do not know what brand the web cam is it was given to me with no box just the cam & disc...

Use this link from Yahoo Messenger help to download AMCap its a little bit of software that checks to see if a webcam is compatible to Yahoo Messenger. Make sure your webcam is plugged in and save it to your desktop. The link you want on the page is "click here"

The other suggestion I have is to find someone with Vista and is willing to help you. I have Vista Home Premium and I can plug any webcam into my USB and it goes off on a search for software.

I just checked to verify that Microsoft does indeed offer a Vista compatible download for that cam. If you are serious about using the cam on the Vista machine, maybe you should try downloading the driver directly from Microsoft. It is entirely possible that the CD drive on your Vista machine is having problems reading the CD that came with the webcam and the download would be a direct install from the hard drive. Heck, it's worth a try, don't ya think.

UNPLUG the cam. Uninstall all software and drivers related to it. Reboot. Install software and drivers. Just AFTER instaling software plug the cam back in. I hope that helps you.

Logitech QuickCam STX vista compatibility?

Have you updated DirectX?, I'm not sure if Vista has DX9.0 or 9.0c, but you could try and update DirectX before you install the cam software. Also if the cam is usb, did you install the software "before" connecting the cam?, some people aren't aware that usb devices have to have the software installed first, before connecting the device.
