Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Toshiba A200-AH5 notebook. Before my webcam would only work in its own program, and not with MSN messenger. Now it works with MSN, but everytime i turn on the computer a error message pops up telling me "webcam driver open fail. please restart computer or webcam" Please assist me with thsi problem.
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.
