A slow running computer can easily be fixed by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- optimizing internet
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Thanks.

Does processor speed affect the way your webcam works My webcam is not very REAL TIME it is very slow. MY processsor is old....2.80 ghz and I have 1.18gb of ram. Is this not sufficient?


Hello Flecia, hi;
The processor speed do someway affect the speed of your webcam, but the most common reason why webcam gets so slow is the program that shows the video. Skype has good quality videos, depending also on the speed of your internet connection and the graphics card installed on your PC.
Check also for computer viruses, these programs and malwares slows the PC down. Well a clean PC is fast enough, check also your hard drive, you may need to defrag it every month. Your Ram is sufficient enough, and your processor being a 2.8 ghz is still fast.
So here are the things you may need to do.
  1. Defrag your hard drive every month. or better, reformat your PC every 6 months to a year.
  2. Check for computer viruses and malwares.
  3. Install Skype (which I recommend) for your webcam online software.
  4. Get a fast Internet connection (if you are willing), atleast DSL minimum is 512KBPS.
  5. Get also a high resolution webcam. (if possible)
hope this helps.

How do i stop the cam from making me look slow when i video cam on msn messager


this problem can be caused by:
  1. your web cam being unable to cope with a high frame rate ( this is unlikely)
  2. your internet connection speed is low
  3. your computer is running to slow to prosses the web cam information
Solutions
  1. if your webcam cant handle high frame rates, then the only solution is to buy a new, higher quality web cam
  2. if your connection speed is low, then close down other programs that use the internet, eg internet explorer or multiplayer games
  3. if your computer is running to slow to prosses the information, then close down any unnessesery programs, for example games, internet, or even word and exell
good luck, please take the time to rate this solution
thanks

Slow slow slows down my computer!!


Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze up or slow down.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud

Webcam freeze, bad cam or what?


It is not the web cam or the computer why it freezes. It is the internet connection using in the philippines. the upload stream is too slow thats it lags the image. It could also be caused by the computer memory. But most of the time it is the connection. Be sure that when he/ she is using the webcam, shes not doing other things on the internet like downloading or browsing.

Graphics?


Normal 0 How much memory do you have installed in your computer? It may need to be, increased, as this is likely to be the cause of your computer freezing, rebooting, times out, or shutting down.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Aol problems and freezing


There should be a settings menu in settings or options. The freezing of the cam may be down to your pc doing something in the background or because the broadband connnection is slow at either parties connection.
