Question about Logitech QuickCam Express Web Camera

1 Answer

I bought a Logitech Quickcam, but the colour is very poor and the camera freezes and when I am speaking to someone it does not allow any movement as it freezes immediately so I cannot see what the person on the other side does. Did I do something wrong with the setup. thank you Riana

    Computer freezes when I use try to use my camera

    Detailed Description

    My computer freezes every time I use my camera. What can I do?


    if a camera freezes after a few seconds, it is related to the USB
    chipset you are running. Some chipsets do not have enough bandwidth to
    support a camera. Make sure you are plugging the camera directly into
    the computer while testing and unplug any other USB devices you may
    have except a keyboard or a mouse.
    To resolve the issue, we recommend using the USB troubleshooting steps detailed in Troubleshooting USB Issues.
    you have the same issue but do not have the USB chipsets discussed in
    the document, please make sure you have the latest version of the
    Logitech camera software AND the latest version of DirectX.
    may also want to slow down the hardware acceleration. To do this, right
    click on the desktop and choose Properties. Click on
    Advanced/troubleshoot. Lower the hardware acceleration, apply any
    changes and try the camera again.
    If you are running Windows XP,
    please make sure you have the latest sound card, video card and Windows
    XP updates. You can get the sound card and video card updates from the
    card manufacturers or PC manufacturers web site. You can get the
    Windows XP updates from Microsoft.
    With the release of any new operating system, we suggest that you check
    for updates to the operating system and hardware drivers. These updates
    can resolve many video streaming issues.

Motion blurry on logitech webcam

Normal 0 How much memory is installed in your computer? The camera uses quite a bit of your memory to operate properly and would cause the poor video. Could be other
Issues, but worth checking.
Hope this helps. Bud

Assuming you have enabed audio in the camera and Live software, there may be a problem with Windows Live, so uninstall and re install to try again. If you have a limited amount of memory and are running other programmes, that can cause the programme to freeze up. Make sure that Windows Live is allowed in your firewall programmes and antivirus programmes, as they may stop you from conferencing. Last of all, we can assume the person you are speaking to has not got the volume muted or too low in your video box, which can happen at times, or the problem is with that persons programme and not your's.
