Orbicam freezing in Skype

Everything was fine when using Skype with the Orbicam until recently. It started to freeze up and now it says it can't find a webcam connection. Every time I try to open the Orbicam icon, it appears then quickly minimizes to the toolbar. Any ideas?

How do I stop Skype freezing oon my laptop ?


Try This:

CTRL+ALT+Del this will open Windows Task Manager Under Application tab right click on Skype and left click on "Go To Process"
Left click on End Process. this will stop Skype without rebooting the PC.

After opening Skype does ALL programs Freeze? If so then its probly Malware running on the PC.
Reboot the PC into safe mode and run a full scan with your antivirus program.

Good Luck!

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10. I was able to use Skype without any problem, but recently I can only skype for a certain length of time, approximately 20 - 50 minutes, before the whole computer freezes....


You have explained a problem that seems to be due to heat. An interesting fact is that when you remove it from it's cover you get a bit more time out of it. That confirms the heat theory.

Use it right from the beginning on the desk, the cover prevents proper airflow through the chassis. Even lift it slightly with an pencil or the like. Lift the rear.

Your laptop computer may need to be cleaned of dust/service.

Some-how you need it to run cooler.

Take Care!

Orbicam freezing in Skype


1. Check if your computer has enough memory available. Open task manager, select performance tab. Check the green bar on the bottom then copare memory usage to the total of your Physical memory. If your usage is greater then physical memory then upgrade memory on your laptop.
2. Unistall your Skype application and reinstall it. Do the same for your Webcam.

Good luck.

Screen freezes


are you installed the some kind of software before freeze?, i mean, when you use it, you install the another application. if you do, then perhaps that application caused the problem. if not, then the problem is in the hardware driver. freeze problem mostly caused by unstable driver or software. make sure driver or software that you are installed into your operating system is stable or compatible.
