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!

Why everytime i used skype and google chrome for the same time, my pc is freezing and slowly run


Then try not to use both of them at the same type. :)

Skype requires at least 256 MB of RAM and Google Chrome requires at least 128MB. Depending on what you are doing on Chrome and if you are video calling in Skype, you may be pushing the upper limits of your memory. This could be just one observation, but this would be hard to determine without a lot of other information.

If this has recently started happening, then you may want to look here:

Xbox 360 Freezing Problems


Shutting off the Xbox corrupted the Hard Drive... Have you ever got a Live System Update? You can also reset your Xbox without shutting it off using the controller. You probably have the Three Red Rings of Death... Go to this...

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.
