Hello john_boy543,

Try a clean boot /install:
Removing the software and reinstalling it using a "clean boot" may resolve the symptoms you are experiencing. Booting clean is a way to eliminate programs from conflicting with installation of software.

1. Unplug the camera from the computer. Later you will be prompted by the software to plug in the camera; do so at that time only.
2. Open the Windows Control Panel.
3. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
4. Locate the listing for the software and remove it. When prompted to remove the camera drivers files, click Yes.

Now download the latest version of the software for your OS from Logitech's website

The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP. If you have a different OS, just let me know and I will send you the appropriate procedure to boot clean in that OS.

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, reinstall the downloaded software. Next , do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Why is my new game saintsrow the third keep frezzing and the sound keeps going in and out


Just like anything else that is mass produced there are sometimes defective parts. The disc that it was made from could have a defect in it.
I would suggest taking the game back to the store and exchanging it for another.
Most stores will let you exchange with a receipt.
And don't worry about your saved game data it will still be there!

Keeps frezzing,i update it & it takes long time to come back on,still frezzes after that


First what you have to do is to reset the unit. To reset the unit, press and hole the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit will restart and it will work perfectly fine once again. Before you reset your device, you will have to charge the battery for about 2 hours before you do the reset. That should do the job for you. If it still freezes, check if your device allows memory card and move some of your files to the SD memory card, because, if there are too many files on the device, it will begin to hang also.

Hope this helps you

Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze up.
