Hi,

Try to update the lifecam drivers in Device Manager. To do that:

1. Open Device Manager.
- In Windows Windows 7, click Start , type devmgmt.msc in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

2. Expand the following entries:
-Sound, video , and game controllers
-Imaging Devices

3. Look for a black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field next to a device. The exclamation point indicates that the device has a problem. Right-click the device, and then click the option that corresponds to your version of Windows:
-Click Update Driver Software.
-Click Browse my computer for driver software.
-Click Browse.

In the Browse For Folder dialog box, move to the following folder and then click OK:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft LifeCam\Driver32If a driver is not found, try the following folders:
C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
C:\Windows\Inf
Click Next.



If this doesn't help, download and install the latest software. loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); To download the most recent version of the LifeCam software, follow these steps:

  1. Click this link to go to the Microsoft Hardware Web site:
  2. Click Software for Microsoft internet communications (webcam and headset) products.
  3. In the Select type of product box, select Webcams.
  4. In the Select your product box, select your LifeCam product.
  5. In the Select your operating system box, select your version of Windows.
  6. In the Select your operating system language box, select your Windows language.
  7. Click Go.
  8. Click the link to download the most recent version of the LifeCam software.

Hope this helps.
Waiting your comments.

I used twinkle cam successfully in windows xp. I have upgraded to windows 7. How do I get the driver or will anything work?


According to http://www.chicony.com.tw/download/di/driver.asp , the available drivers were written in 2004. Chicony has stopped supporting their cameras for newer Windows OS versions. I suspect they never made a 64-bit version of the driver for XP 64-bit.

If you had the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you might be able to use the compatibility mode to install the driver. To check your version, click on Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. Look for your Windows version and check if it says x64. If you see that in the description, you have the x64 bit version. Otherwise, right-click on the driver file from the above site (after extracting the files from the zip file). Choose Properties and the Compatibility tab. Check the box for always Run this program in the compatibility mode and set it to Windows XP in the drop-down menu. You may need to repeat this on the camera software as well.

If you have a 64-bit version Windows Home Premium, you may be better off upgrading to Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate. Then you can download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode, if your hardware can handle that software. This gives a virtual version of the 32-bit version XP that will run your camera. (The CPU needs to have virtualization support and it has to be enabled in the BIOS. Then you need enough memory to give the virtual XP at least 512MB -1GB of memory.) If you already have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, just use XP mode. Other virtual PC software exists but they require a licensed version of XP. (If you can find a valid license.) The only issue I've found is that files saved to the C: drive in one OS can't be accessed by the other OS. You have to transfer the files with an external drive, flash drive or burn the file to optical disc.

Dual boot systems with XP and Windows 7 can be set up if you have the XP license. Then pick the OS you need when you boot up the computer. This requires you to repartition the hard drive or have two bootable hard drives. Make sure to back up before partitioning the drive.

I wish that I had better news for you.

415DX (corrected) windows 7 32bit or 64?
first off there are only 3 ways (besides 2 day google searches and gettng infected 10 time)
what are the, in order. of easy and safe.
step are you connected to the internet.? yes/no..
if no ,there will be now drivers...
i see you formatted the HDD. that kills dead the free windows from HP doing that. its gone now.
so what w7 disk is that FROM WHOM? MS?, hacker? whom?
media used matters.
  1. go to Device manager and see if cam is there, click update.
  2. go to HP, see link below, get the drivers you deleted.
  3. run scan tools to learn what camera is there and get driver from the maker of cam. ask.


what you need is the HP driver.
load all these, cept BIOS.

i guessed 64bit

this is your support page, get them while still there (be savvy)

I up graded my pc to windows 7 ultimate. i have a Hp laserjet 3015 and cannot seem to make the scanner work


Chances are the printer didn't come with drivers for Windows 7.
If you have Windows 7 Ultimate x32/86, click here.
If you have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, click here.
Install the appropriate driver on your computer and it should work. Best of luck!

I have recently bought a new lap top with Windows 7 OS system and am having problems getting my cannon inkjet pixus 2000 to connect to it. If i use the cd install it says it isn't compatible, i've tried...


First, uninstall the printer software that was installed from the CD. Next, download the latest driver from http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010093.asp. If your laptop is new is is probably 64 bit. Make sure that you download and install the 64 bit version. The default versions on the CD and from most download sites is the older 32 bit version.
