Question about Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000 Webcam

1 Answer

Image flickers I have installed the NX-6000 in my Dell Vostro and from the beginning I get this horrible flickering image, I have tried everything I can think of, but still the same problem, the laptop runs under an ATI Radeon Express 1150 and it has the latest drivers. I think my problem is driver related, I have made the same installation on my desktop PC and it has worked flawlessly since the beginning, this is driving me crazy for 3 days already Any ideas?

    same problem - happens on fresh install - this problem began when i switched from Vista to XP.  Under Vista it worked fine.  Under XP it flickers like crazy.

    had the same problem. try to deactivate "write combining": right click on desktop, settings/advanced, problem handling (rightmost tab), uncheck "write combining" and reboot.

    cheers, chris

    I looked at the Dell site and it indicates that the Laptop comes with a Webcam installed.
    If so, this could be the cause of the flickering. Both camera's could be working at the same time.
    Look in the center of the cover on top. Is there a small hole, that could be the camera?
    Your manual might help in determining if you have an internal camera.
    Can you give me the model of your Dell Laptop.
    I will try to help you further after I hear from you.
    Thanks, Bud

I would try to connect it to a monitor, this way you can isolate it as being an issue with LCD panel or the power suppy\motherboard components. If you do this report back and we can take it further.

My inspiron 6000's power flickers on and off intermittently, switching between A/C & battery power. I've replaced the power cord. Any other ideas?


Try removing batt and use ac adapter alone. Check if laptop works fine also check if LED flickers still.

Try removing ac adapter and use battery alone and check if batt flickers as well.

If flickering only happens when both are connected or vice versa try this first. Update the BIOS for your laptop. Download the BIOS update from http;//support.dell.com
