Start up in safe mode and see if there is some IRQ problem. Check in control panel --> device manager for a Yellow exclamation mark. See why its there.

My funcam model DMVC300K won't work with windows 7. Driver not installed, and i have the cd that came with the camera. Help


Took from the FAQ on Phillips support page

At the time this webcam was designed, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems did not exist yet.
Unfortunately, the internal hardware of the webcam does not match the requirements of these operating systems.
Therefore we cannot provide a software upgrade (driver upgrade) to support Windows Vista or Windows 7.
We apologize that we are not able to support you in this matter.

I upgrade windows xp and ihave no sound on my system, i have looked on my device manager, there was showned in yellow colour "other device - multimedia audio controller and video controller(VGA...


> other device - multimedia audio controller

This means that Windows has not found/loaded the device-drivers for your sound-card.

> other device video controller(VGA compatible)

This means that Windows has not found/loaded the device-drivers for your video-card.

In both cases, access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
and do a "custom" search for updated device-drivers.
When the search completes, click the "Optional Hardware" updates, to see if Windows Update is offering device-drivers for your hardware.

Or, access the web-site for the manufacturer of your motherboard,
and do a search, based on the model-number of the motherboard,
and based on the Operating System (XP? Vista? 7?) that you have installed,
to see if that web-site is offering device-drivers for your environment.

Was given inspiron 5000e laptop- / can it be


Yes, you can upgrade to windows XP but it will require upgrading the memory to the maximum supported memory of 512 MB. It is set up with PC100. I would suggest going with PC133 when you upgrade the memory. Be advised though that the PC100/PC133 memory is expensive new but you can usually shop around and find it used for a cheaper price. The 800MHz processor will support the XP operating system.

VGA PROBLEM


Have you tried to go online to the windows update? Go there and choose custom install after the scan, then click on the optional upgrades and look for a graphics upgrade and choose install, windows will download and install the new driver....actually, while you are in there let windows get all the hardware updates that are available.

These are the recommended hardware requirements in installing windows XP:
  • PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
  • 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
  • 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
  • Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
  • CD-ROM or DVD drive
If your laptop pass all this requirements then you can upgrade your windows 98 to windows xp operating System.

Frequent Computer Crash


I think that you are mistaken something, I could'n find pvm900 at viaarena, no results at all.

If you use SP2 upgrade pack...well don't, some old peripherials refuse to work with the upgrade pack, instead install from full OEM cd or stick to SP1, I have some customers that still work with win98 and xp SP1 very well.

Try this: first update your DirectX software from microsoft, link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en

Hope you are a genuine windows user because you need to be to get it, download and install.
If it did not solve the problem...enter windows in "safe mode" (F8 while loading computer), press "yes" to the question asked,

start-->control panel-->system-->hardware-->device manager-->open the + at the "display adapters" right click over the display and choose uninstall, do the same at "sound,video and mult..."
log off while shutting down the computer, turn on, windows will prompt for the device driver (once for display and once for sound), point to place where the display or sound card drivers are, if there are not recognized as valid drivers, maybe they are not compatible with OS, search for compatible soft at driverguide.com
