Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera

I hate Logicool

I bought a logicool webcam but as soon as I installed it all the sound went from my computer. I can't play music or have a voice conversation, let along a video call. Who would have thought I'd ever miss that annoying beep the computer makes when it objects to you hitting all the buttons in desperation. Silence is deadly - help!

Re: I hate Logicool

Just dont install that crappy software that comes with it. it causes many problems as you already experienced. just install the drivers and good is. to solve your problem you have to uninstall the logitech software again and clean up your registry,stripping all entries in regard of logitech.
if you have done that, you might have to reinstall your audio software for your soundcard.

I cannot used my logicool webcam, but i already connect it to the computer, but it does't work. what should I do?

You can go to other machines to test whether your camera can work, if it can work,maybe it is the problem of compatibility between driven and devices.
You can download the latest camera drivers and graphics drivers,install them,and then check. If the logicool webcam cann't work,it is likely that camera and graphics do not match, you have to give up and replace one.
I hope the above can help you.

Buffalo webcam is not working on Windows xp sp2

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.

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 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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 shoud 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
