Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Basically, my webcam is not working. I recently bought a Microsoft Lifecam VX-7000, and for the first week or so it worked perfectly. However, starting yesterday, it changed. I would plug in my webcam and it would accept it, and the icon for it would appear in "my computer." But whenever I tried to video chat with someone, on aim it would say there was no camera. On other programs it would appear as all black with a small line of gray static on the bottom. When I go to my computer and click the preview, it works perfectly. So there is a connection to the computer, but it won't work when I use it on any application. - I've completely restored my computer to date before I got webcam and uninstalled and reinst already. I've tried everything, but no solution- please help

Hello.

If you have previously installed a Logitech Webcam, the solution is to:

Update the LifeCam drivers in Device Manager and download the most recent version of the LifeCam software.

If that is not the case, please provide your operating system.

Hope this helps.

I would go download and update the camera's drivers on you pc. You can get them free form manufacture's website. That is the best and most updated drivers you can get. Then also make sure you have the latest quicktime player installed and updated.

Hello :

Before i start to give a solution i would like to tell you that rebooting system after any new installing or uninstalling of any software is very important .
For your Webcam , i recommend you to uninstall it's software completely and reboot your system . After that install it again and reboot your system again .
You have to do that while the Cam is connected to your computer .
After that , you need to set that software correctly before you start to run the Cam again . !
If that didn't help , then i recommend you to restore your system to the a previous point [time] when the cam was working perfectly .
If that didn't help also , then i advice you to get it back to the place where you bought it from . But don't forget to take the guarantee and the bill with you .

I hope that can help you .

rate if that was useful please !

Please remove first the usb cam and reinsert it and if the PC detects the hardware as USB device then you have to remove the old installed driver in your control panel and re-install the cd driver for your camera. It was just file corruption happen in your cam.
