    I suppose I should have mentioned I am using it for video calls on Skype...

  • David Nov 20, 2009

    I don't know if it will...never tried to make a video.. I just wanted at the moment to do video calls....I will skip the plugging in the web cam during the intallation process until after as you have the process now

    Well some sort of success....the video camera froze a few times but I could restart it and towards the end it kept running. initially it would freeze after about twenty seconds and then it would run for maybe three or four minutes. I believe in the end when I terminated the call it had operated for 30 minutes.

    However..I'm not happy with the body movements were robotic on the screen and the color was terrible...the color adjustments were of no help and overall the picture was fuzzy.

    On the scale of 1 to 10 this model would rate a 1 unless you know someway to enhance the performance.

    Never the less I appreciate your solution. It may not be perfect, close to an 82% satisfaction rating to keep running... so your performance rating in providing solutions is intact.

Go to Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager. Here locate your webcam, select it and delete it. Now disconnect the webcam from the laptop. Reboot. Insert the Logitech CD and install the drivers afresh. Reboot. Connect the webcam and allow Windows to detect it and load its drivers. Windows will take a long time to do this. Now configure the Instant manager to use this webcam as default camera. And start using. But before you do that start the webcam program to use this camera to check if it takes the video continuously. I do not see any problems now. Trick with Logitech is to load drivers with the device disconnected.

    In Skype you can configure it from Tools->Options->Video.
    tell me, does it take a video without Skype?

  • Rinoo Kumari Nov 20, 2009

    do let me know the results.

  • Rinoo Kumari Nov 20, 2009

    To change the quality of the pic, rotate the ring around the lens to focus it. You seem to be out of focus. Do that and the fuzzyness would be gone. To set the colors go to Options from Tools of Skype and access the Configure the camera. tweak with it and some improvement would be seen. BUT remember to note down what you do as you may have to revert back to the original.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home

See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display

You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?

Logitech WebCam Pro 5000 - Video Problem

Well the thing is with Digital Camera If there is lots going on (on the computer) your other program might interfer
1st end all processes that might have anything to do with the camera or that may be using any of its features, I would retart your computer as well
If you still have any issue uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the camera.
But I'm thinking you might have too much going on in the computer at the same time

Good Luck
