Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

CPU pins at 100% upon connecting

The install was fine when but I connect to another computer for a video call, my CPU pins at 100% and my voice isn't heard well, if at all, on the other side. I can see their picture and hear their voice pretty well, but it seems my system is having trouble once the program connects. My system specs are well above the recommended specs to run the camera.

Any help would be appreciated.

While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard.

The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drivesPCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ There is a connection problem such as a bad cable
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty. Although it would be very rare for the sata lead to be faulty. Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty Computers need power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

I just bought a new logitech C250 and i just did a test video chat through gmail and i could hear the sound from the other end but they could not hear me. vid is working fine


First, do have pink and green leads plugged in to the pink and green designated contacts? If so, go to installation where it lets you check the working of sound and voice recording. Make sure the mic is connected to pink (select it on the screen). Do a test. If the test does not record your voice, you don't have the right mic selected. I had this problem and didn't notice that Realtec was selected. IUse the drop down menus to select the right connection for your mic and earphones. If the drop down menu does not drop down, I'd uninstall all and start over. That's what I had to do. This is difficult to describe without being able to show you these screens.

You must go into the Tools Option where you sign in on MSN Messenger and change the microphone/speaker settings there. It is at the top of the window where you can see your status and all your contacts listed...the window that comes up upon "Sign In".

These override any settings you may have changed in the control panel.

Yes...it works with Windows Vista.
