Re: usb hardware

Yes, during the installation, the Windows system sometimes will asking for the driver signature, just accept by pressing OK/Yes. Of course, u must confirm the driver is exactly matching your OS system.

I cant install my hercules web cam

Please be informed that any hardware device needs a driver software to run within a PC, and the driver software depends on the Hardware Make/Model and the Operating System software you are using in your PC to operate it.You will get the Driver software of any hardware within the CD provided with the hardware part at the time of its purchase. The hardware may be an entire PC,Laptop,VGA card, sound card, LAN card,webcam,printers etc.

If you do not have the CD or misplaced it somewhere then you need to download the driver software to get going. Thus you need to know all the above information to get the exact software your PC needs. As you have not mentioned the Hardware Make/model and Operating System you are using, i am unable to give you the direct download link.
However you can download the same by visiting the 'software downloads' section of the website of the hardware brand you have purchased. You just need to Google the name of the brand and visit their website and search for the download section.

If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

The webcam is not being detected - check your USB ports in Device Manager - unplug anything else you have in a USB port

Download this diagnostic software and see what if finds

How can i install my web cam without a cd installer.. logitech quickcam communicate..this is my web camera model.. thanks

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?",en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to run the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Can not install software for logitech quickcam

Look in the bottom bar and click on the one that is asking you to allow the installation by clicking on YES so it has permission to install the program. That is what it sounds like to me that is happening. It should pop-up on the screen so you can see it, but in some cases it doesn't.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Hi, Please uninstall any logitech software version present on your OS (if available) - Then please proceed to clean boot. ( ) -> Unplug all the USB devices connected to the computer ( Less keyboard + mouse ) please use corded kbd+mouse if
possible rather than a cordless device. -> Go to device manager -> Delete all the USB HOST CONTROLLER -- All of them -- -> The host controller might reinstall them itslef, let the computer handle the reinstallation -> If the computer does not reinstall the host controllers, trigger the detection using the DM function " Scan for
new hardware " ( The computer with magnifier icon ) -> Once reinstalled, clean boot -> Reinstall the software if available and/or plug the hardware when needed. -> Should work.
This TB delete the usb ports " memory " means if a device as been previously flagged with error, it will redetect
the device without the flag, unless there is some serious issue with the hardware/OS
If after this the issue persist, then I suggest you to call Logitech support to issue a replacement, hardware

Logitech quick cam communication deluxe will not install

Ok, take a breath... What has happened, is although you uninstalled the Logitech software, the folders still exist (as with any program uninstallation).

Unless you're comfortable with poking around your C drive, then download and run a program called "ccleaner" at, which in a normal scenerio will remove redidual files left behind by an uninstall.

Once you have installed ccleaner, choose "tools" and use their uninstaller to remove the logitech software (if it shows on the program list).Even if it doesnt show, still run the "cleaner" function", as there will always be temp files lurking around that could mess up an installation.

Then, go to Logitech's site and get the latest software for your camera model.

Be sure to NOT plug the camera in until it tells you to do so!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!

You may have to go into Skype's video configuration utility to setup the cam, but I think you can take it from there. Good luck!
