    check and see if another program starts up using the webcam, (messenger,yahoo messenger,etc.)

    removed all photographs from the 'pictures' directory and moved them into 'documents'. I could not believe it, the web cam started working again. As soon as any photographs are put into 'pictures' it stops working again. It seems too simple I know, but it works. Try it.

Solution

I think this is a driver issue. So make sure that if for instance you have VISTA on your other system and it worked fine with vista whereas on the lappy you got XP and you expected it to work tough luck! You got to make sure that you installed the proper driver for the OS. If you do not have this on the CD which came with it go to the lifecam vx3000 site and downlaod the driver suitable for your OS.

If still no luck with this I think I know what might solve the issue

1. Uninstall the webcam driver (from control panel ... add / remove hardware find webcam and remove)
2. Uninstall yet another time MSN Messenger
3. Disable any other built in webcam that you might have on the laptop from the device manager as you didnt say if the laptop already has a webcam built in
4. Download tunieup utilities install trial and run registry cleaner ... clean the whole registry for 2 - 3 times until its perfectly clean. Install the new driver you just downloaded
5 . Reboot
6. Install MSN Messenger
7. Reboot

Now see how that goes.

if you have installed vista and change it to xp, you should first delete or reformat your current OS (Operating System) which I believe is the ur vista.

formatting OS:

-insert your xp disk then press F8
-click format or delete files ( i don't know the exact message that will appear on the screen)
-then install windows XP (just follow the instruction that you will see on the screen)

hope this would help you solve your problem..

thanks.. :)

Webcam wont load


Hi,

If the two (cam + laptop) have not worked together before, it might be due to drivers problems. Most drivers are very OS specific. In some instances Vista has been known to have USB and/or compatibility issues. On the otherhand XP sometimes requires that you uninstall the old drivers, reboot before (re)installing new drivers, reboot before installing the hardware and allow autodetect and auto install.

If the two (cam + laptop) have worked together before and now doesn't, it might be due to hardware problems such as the cord, the cam itself or the USB port of the laptop. If your other USB devices works, then USB port(s) can be ruled out. You can verify that the camera works buy installing it in another PC.

You can verify OS compatibility of your camera as well as updated drivers at the Logitech website. Additionally, you can check for Microsoft updates/patches and fixes like this USB patch for Vista.

Should you need additional information, pls post back with your cam's brand/model, your laptop's brand/model and your OS version.

Hope this be of help. Good luck and kind regards.
