Webcam problems on MSN and on Laptop


My logitech webcam, as well as any other webcam, refuses to connect to my contact on MSN. The laptop is a window's Vista, and the webcam is accepted and about 30 seconds later, when it usually is supposed to show up, it closes automatically wtihout anyone having to touch it. What's wrong with it? It works fine on my desktop computer.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

My MSI Laptop Webcam doesnt work on my MSN, what should i do???? PLease Help me!!!

If the webcam works normally otherwise then the problem is compatibility between your webcam and MSN messenger. I'd contact MSN and ask them if/whem they support the webcam or get a cheap generic USB cam that will work.

Logetech web cam

Try this instead. Go to go into the webcam section find the model of webcam you purchased.To the left side of the the photograph of your webcam It shows downloads.Click on that and download the software directly from logitech. just follow the prompts which starts with what operating system your using (windows98) are you going to use skype or msn? just remember once you've set up the software in your computer you'll have to also set up the webcam to whatever medium you using to chat msn or whatever. On msn its at the top of the contact list page, under tools.

No sound

You will have to set the logitech webcam up to the medium you are using yahoo...msn. This is done after the software is installed.I don't use yahoo but on msn open it up then go to tools on the msn page at the top above all your contacts.Open the tools and go to webcam setup,click on it and follow the steps.This will get the mic working.It took me awhile to realize you had to do it twice once for the software setup and again to set it up to mate to MSN.

Face-tracking prob with Quiclcam Pro5000

Make sure you have installed the latest software from Logitech's website. Be sure to UNPLUG the cam when installing, and ONLY plug it in when it tells you to do so.

Also, what service (msn, yahoo) are you trying to use face tracking in? Keep in mind that MSN, Yahoo, etc have their own camera settings, which may over-ride any default settings.

Of you're on MSN, Logitech has a solution:
