    My webcam is gonna work for maybe 5 seconds, then it's gonna shut down by itself, then the sound it makes when a USB is unplug is gonna start. It's built-in... how come this happens?

The type of pc is not as important as the type of webcam at this point. The story also needs more details.

If you had a Logtec webcam and at first it only worked with its custom made software, what did you do to make it work with MSN?
----------------
Based of the info provided, I would
1. uninstall all cam software while the cam is unpluged,

2. Reboot the pc. Then plug the cam in.

3. When windows detects the cam, it will ask for drivers, do not click on search on windows update website, click the option to choose from a specific location and then browse to the cd provided.

4. Try and load msn now. The msn website or the cam company sometimes have a patch to make the cam and the messenger work together. I would check the cam website before looking around the microsoft site.

Toshiba Laptop A200-AH5. My computer seems dead and there is only the blue (I think battery light) light that is on. Nothing else works. I hope my laptop didnt crash? Please help me.


Most likely the problem is related to the board. Also most likely the light you are seeing is the power light. Do you get any blinking lights? Try also an external monitor and see if that works.

Goto my computer icon on the desktop and right click on it and choose properties, from there find device manager, in there look for imaging devices, click on the <+> sign and then right click on the device it brings up and update driver, choose the internet once option and wait a bit for the driver to be installed may take a few minutes so be patient.

Hello sandeep

Since the problem here is compatiability issue. Suggestion: why dont you try other video chat programs. Skype is also good for video chatting and free to use. If all doesnt work you should consider asking for a replacement.

Best of luck

Using new Satallite P200-1EE, webcam is not connected message with Yahoo Messenger


I'm using a Toshiba satellite notebook A200, which I faced the same problem like you saying my built- in webcam cannot operate after I clicked on the drop down list from the windows live messenger to have a webcam conversation. Another program is running the webcam at startup. That program is called Camera Assistant Software which is the conflicting software. Therefore I closed this software and I'm able to use my webcam again in my webcam conversation in windows live messenger. I hope this information will help you.Good Luck!
