Copy this site and paste it in your web browser, then when you get on the site, select your product and download your driver for your webcam.

http://www.a4tech.com/ennew/downloads.asp

Use the quick product locator then select "Web Cameras"
Then under "Downloads," in the drop down, "Select"
the model number.
Also when it asks you for your Windows Operating System, be sure to select the right one.

Then after completing the download do this.
Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

How can i install my a4 635 webcam with out cd?


Hello there,
As you'll notice, I pulled this link from A4Tech's site, it's the driver download for the PK-635 webcam....

http://www.a4tech.com/ennew/driver/CameraA.zip

You'll download this and then extract the files to a folder that you can easily remember; when you connect the webcam to your computer and it asks you for the drivers, tell it that you will choose the drivers from a specific location - where then you will point it to the folder wherein you extracted the above file to.... windows should find the driver files in there and take care of the rest.
Well, perhaps its an install file inside of there, in which case you would extract the files inside and then run a 'setup' or 'install' program from within that folder which would take care of everything.
You'll just hafta download and try out the above file & its contents...

I hope that works for you.

My pc doesnt recognise the scanner


OK.
The first thing I would try a different cable between the PC and scanner just in case it's faulty. Use a 6-foot USB) cable.
If this doesn't fix the problem:
Disconnect the scanner.
Remove the scanner driver so that we can start from scratch.
Go to http://www.mustek.com/mustek/supportdrivers.php and select your scanner model.
Download the twain driver and panel zip file.
Extract the file and install the driver
After installation, restart your system.
Once the system has restarted, reconnect the scanner.
Check the scanner icon on the control panel to make sure that it has installed successfully and that the red X is not shown.
If this does not work let me know.

Open the downloaded file and follow the onscreen instructions.
Once installation is complete, restart your computer.
