Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

Most times when I turn on my webcam, I get a blue screen and my computer closes down. Then when it restarts, windows tells me to uninstall the device that's causing the problem. When occasionally it doesn't shut down but I try to use it on skype, I get told there's a video error.

How to fix msi u135dx webcam?


If it is an internal webcam (the one on the top of the monitor) look for a key on your keyboard,which has a webcam picture on it,then press the key and Fn (function) key at the same time when you're on the desktop
If it is an external webcam (which connected to the USB ports) go to Device Manager by right clicking on My Computer,select Properties,on the Properties window click on Hardware tab,then click Device Manager. Or if you are using windows Vista or windows 7,you can type "device" on the start menu and select Device Manager
On device manager window,expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers and see if there are an USB which has "?" sign on it (or any sign)
Then right click on the signed device (if there are one) and select uninstall,follow the uninstall process and restart your computer
The computer will reinstall the driver automatically
Please let me know if it's working

Every time i try to use my acer crystal eye webcam, my screen turns blue and the computer shuts off.


Hello.
If your operating system is Windows XP and you are the only owner of this PC (you should have administrator's rights), then try this:
Press [START] -> [Run...] -> type DEVMGMT.MSC -> press [OK]
A new window Device Manager should appear. Locate where your webcam is listed. Right click on it and choose uninstall. Confirm Device removal with the [OK] button.
Then do the following: Press [START] -> [Run...] -> type APPWIZ.CPL -> press [OK]. A new window Add or Remove Programs should appear. Locate driver, utility or program associated with your webcam and uninstall it.
Restart your computer and install a new driver for webcam from Acer support's home page:

Webcam Woes.


Try new drivers if you haven't already, or, if you can, get your hands on some older drivers and see if that helps.

The blue screen could be caused by a malfunction in the device itself which in turn causes the drivers to crash and Windows to blue screen. It is entirely possible that the webcam has simply become defective.

Good Luck!

My laptop shuts down when i connect my new iPhone 3G


does your computer have a webcam? if it does, the computer is restarting itself because it identifies two conflicting cameras - one from your computer, the other from your iphone. what you can do is either 1)update your camera drive, 2)update your computer drive or 3)use a computer that does not have a webcam connected to it. hope this helped!

also, if you're using windows vista, this link will help you: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2280?viewlocale=en_US

Blue screen appears when I instal Microsoft nx-6000 cam


hi adrian,

thank you for using fixya.

you may have encountered that blue screen of death error because of an IRQ conflict. this cane be caused by a conflicting resource for computer components. much like 1 car battery being used by 2 cars at the same time.

o have this resolved, it is best that you have the camera replaced with another model or you can try to remove other USB devices plugged into your computer until you find out what is causing the error message or the conflict to your new Life Cam.\

hope this helps.

regards.

Will not close down


These monitors go into a standby just incase you are only restarting the PC.
To turn it off properly, hit the power button on the monitor before Windows has completely turned the computer off.

IE: tell Windows to shutdown, when you see the blue screen telling you Windows is shutting down, turn it off then.

Hope that helps
