Microsoft Lifecam X1000 - Installation freezes when previewing video

I am attempting to install my Microsoft Lifecam X1000 on my Vista 64bit operating system. I have installed the software, Vista has searched and found drivers, I am now at the point where it is setting up the audio and visual bits and pieces. I do the sound check, and my speakers work fine. I then go to the microphone check, and usualy it works fine, but sometimes it indicates the sound is very loud and automatically moves the volume slider right to the bottom, but the sound indicator is still in the red. There is no excessive noise. When it does this and I click on next, the program freezes (says the program is not responding). If the microphone section works OK, I then go to the video section, where it then freezes before showing a preview. Sometimes it comes up with the text telling me I can do adjustments, sometimes it just comes up with a black box. If I attempt to close the program in task manager it will not close and I have to restart my computer. When it freezes, it also freezes my MSN.

Solutions I have tried:

I have tried leaving the window open, for up to 3 hours. It did not recover from the not responding freeze and I had to restart my computer.

I have unplugged the camera, uninstalled the software and then restarted my computer, re-installed the software, then replugged the camera in and attempted to set it up again.

I have looked in device manager and it tells me the camera is working.

I have used device manager to check if the drivers are up to date and they are.

Is there anything else I can do before I throw this stupid thing through the window??? I have tried setting this up about 50 times and I am really at my wits end...

Normal 0 Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.



Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

I can`t install my Lifecam VX2000


Hello!
Please, check if your Operating System is compatible with your camera, because if not you will have to update.
  • Start>right click Computer>Properties; you will see the first line "Windows Edition" under which you can see which is your Operating System and all the information about it.
  • The camera you have is compatible with Windows 7, but can also work with at least Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista.
  • If your Operating System is older then the above, you will have to update: go to www.microsoft.com and click on downloads, choose your program (XP, Vista, et.), and in the first tab after loading the page you will see the latest update (for example: If XP, you will see download tab for Service Pack 3; if Vista, you will see download tab for Service Pack 2)
  • You can also update using Windows Update: Start>type Windows Update in the search box>Enter>Check for Updates. Install updates and restart your computer.
  • If you do not have the driver for installing your camera, please go to
http://www.howtosetupwebcam.com/news/Microsoft-LifeCam-VX-2000

and see video on how to install your camera. You can also download the driver, BUT make sure you choose the right one for your Operating System-compare drivers on the site and your System info (see step 1).

Good luck!
Regards!
