Question about Logitech QuickCam Express Web Camera

2 Answers

My webcam is shown as a USB device and I can't get the drivers for it to work. Nothing detects it as a webcam, not even the program that was meant for it. The drivers for it aren't detecting the webcam. It doesn't show up in the "My computer" window either. I can't get it to work manually because the webcam drivers don't show up on the list of Logitech drivers, even though I installed Logitech Webcam Studio.

    What I mean is that most USB devices that I plug in are pretty specific. For example, on another computer, this "USB Device" shows up as "Logitech Quickcam Express." My computer would do the same but it only knows that something's plugged in. As for camera wizard, it doesn't detect the webcam.

    Nothing detects it as a webcam. The device manager detects it as a USB Device with a question mark as an icon.

Dell vostro 3450 webcam do not working


I had the same problem, work around is easy - Power managment option enable powering all USB port at all times. That should bring your webcam back to life again. You thank you me later. ;-)
As i mentioned this is just workaround, I solved this problem installing drivers in correct order, so Dell Vostro USA chipset all 5 then i have instaled program called slim drivers and fund good drivers for USB Ports (most recent) then i aplied all crap from windows update.
The driver itself for webcam has nothing to with the problem i believe (its all driver from 2006) the problem is more about system percepction of webcam as exyternal device hooked up to usb port thats why power management interfere with it.
And last thing if you mess up already with original driver and cannot install it then remove not working driver using device manager. Deatach laptop from power supply remove battery, and try switch it on; hold the button for 30 second up to 1 minute. then plug everything or just power cord switch on windows automatically detect device and will instal the driver from 2006.

I have windows xp sp3.my computer is not detecting i ball c12 webcam.it is properly connected to computer through USB as its nightvision lights are working... PLEASE HELP.....


Start by rebooting the PC... You may want to try different usb ports in the even that one of them is faulty. Check the Device Manager by right clicking on my computer, going to properties, and then go to the tab for devices and click device manager and see if the hardware is shown as attached. Have you tried inserting the disk that came with the webcam?

Hey my webcam is not working. MY model is an MSI FX 600. For some reason, the webcam is no longer detected by Windows 7. I use the FN+F6 button to enable/disable the camera, and the picture on the bottom...


It sounds as if the drivers were uninstalled or became corrupted in some way.
The problem is that the drivers for this webcam are not downloaded separately but are native to Windows 7.

Try this solution and post back if it worked or not. If it doesn't work, I will attempt to help you further.

1. Turn on the webcam via the FN+F6 keys.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.

3. Type "devmgmt.msc into the dialog box and press enter to open Device Manager.

4. Find the extra "USB Composite Device" and right click on it.

5. Select "Update Driver" and click "Search automatically for updated driver software".

Windows should find the appropriate driver and install it. If it doesn't, then post back here and I will help you further.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

I don't know what happened to my Acer Crystal Eye Webcam. When I click the icon, it said that no camera was found. This happened in the beggining of December. I tried to fix it by shutting down tasks, and...


It could be a driver issue, if you have already download the correct driver for it, and still nothing and you get nothing when attempting to use the webcam, then your webcam probraly history. You can check to see if your computer can detect the device in the device manage in your control panel to see if windows detect an imaging device, or any unkown device. If it detect your imagining device such as the webcam, check to see if the driver is installed and is working properly, if nothing is shown in your imagin device, then your webcam is history.

Ok i've had my Dell Inspiron 1470 for about a year now...i never really used my webcam thats installed in it because i never really needed to use it but now that i want to use it,its not letting me do...


I have this same laptop with the same problem. The only way i got the webcam to work is when you have Webcam Central open and then plug in a USB device in your laptop like a USB mouse. When the laptop detects the USB device the webcam gets dectected by Webcam Central. *** me off because I tried other people's reasonable solutions for hours with no luck. This was the only way I got it to work. Funny thing is the webcam is still detected by other programs like Yahoo Messenger while Webcam Central does not.

Stuck in here wid a stupid software!!!!!!!


Try using a different USB port. If necessary, disconnect a device you're not using, that you know is working, and use it for your USB drive and copy the software to your PC.
If your USB drive is still not detected, post a message here with specs on it: manufacturer, model number, etc, and someone will find you a driver for it.
Good luck!
