You should uninstall through the control panel, add/remove programs really. As you dont seem to have done that, make sure you have unplugged your camera as it may still be using the file you want to remove. There are lots of other ways of doing it but much riskier to your system. You need to try this first. If you are happy to do it you can do it in safe mode. Press F5 or F8 when booting your pc until you get the option to boot into safe mode. This loads the basic amount of drivers to get you going and will allow you to remove any extra files. Be careful you dont remove anything that may make your system unstable. Files are often used for multiple purposes.

If you are able to hear audio with a music CD or any other application, then you must un-install the software for the camera, reboot and then reinstall.

If you are unable to hear any sound, then your audio driver may have been knocked out by the camera installation. To reinstall, go to manufacturer of computer's website, click on support, enter model number and choose operating system. The page that follows will allow you to download, free, the audio driver. Restart the computer and see if this helps.

I just got my webcam and it is hooked up but is really blurry and nothing i can do will make it go clear, how do i fix this?


1) Rotate the focus ring around the lens to achieve a sharper image or use the zoom function in the webcam settings to achieve the best focal length
2) If your webcam is designed for a 2.0 USB socket and your computer does not have one you may need a powered hub.
3) Check out the readme file on the Microsoft hardare support site to see if you need additional software or a specific browser
Visit the Microsoft hardware support page
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE&type=LifeCam&sku=68A-00001
Fill in the details and click 'GO'
Click on the link:-
"Microsoft LifeCam Readme and Troubleshooting Information"

Computer will not let me remove the lifecam VX-3000


Go to Google and type in Logitech Vid download, use it with your life cam (I do ) first you have to add your contacts and they have to download the software (free) and add you, then you'll be able to connect, plus it's HD quality and great sound. You might also try bringing up the task master to end the process and see if you can reinstall. Ctrl + Alt + Dlt should bring it up.
