Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam
Just a suggestion: Windows can disable the USB ports to save power. This setting is in Windows and it does not matter if the computer is a desktop or laptop. You can test to see if this is the cause. Turn the computer completely off, let it sit for 5 seconds or so and then power it back on. If the web camera turns on and works after the reboot, the Operating System is powering the USB ports down and causing the issue.
You can tell Windows to leave the USB port powered on all of the time. Click START, and go to the CONTROL PANEL. Double click the SYSTEM icon, go to the HARDWARE tab and then click the DEVICE MANAGER button.
This brings up a new window that lists all of the hardware that is in your computer. Click the + (plus sign) next to the UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS entry. Scroll down to each USB ROOT HUB entry, right click each entry and click PROPERTIES.
This brings up a new window, click the POWER MANAGEMENT tab. Remove the check mark from the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."
Repeat for all USB ROOT HUB entries, click OK to save your changes.
