I did the blunder of eaving my Web Cam (Vimicro DRV_VC0305_VA6241_50hz) connected while loading the new OS. I then installed the drivers but unfortunately the Webcam just didnt load. I tried various options but without any joy. Can u pls help Regards

    Yes the web-cam shows up in device manager.

    Initially i was using VISTA drivers from third party website but it was showing in device manager with a yellow exclamation mark. I then went to Vimicro website ( from where i downloded a tool which detects the model of th cam & then downloads the correct driver for it. It identified the cam & gave me a selection of OS from which i selected VISTA 64. It then dlded the drivers which i then installed. Now it shows in device manager & on doubleclicking it says this device is working properly. However when i start the application (Amcap) the window opens but it is blank. I have tried it in MSN Messenger & Skype with same results. Pls help. Regards

What is the model/brand of the webcam as printed on the case of the camera?

Have you tried a different USB port? Do other USB devices workk in the port you use for the webcam?

First, your PC specifications must match the game requirements. starting from the PROCESSORS to VIDEO CARDS etc. Check first the game requirements, and most of this issue is that you have to upgrade your video card you can upgrade that and buy a NVIDIA GEFORCE 1 GB or 2 GB memory or ATI RADEON in a computer shop. Also, to make sure upgrade your processor to AMD ATHLON X64 or have DUAL CORE 2.00 GHZ processors and RAM Memory to 2 GB.

The RAM showing less is quite normal. The temperature of the CPU is too high. Clean out all the dust inside and out, and have new thermal compound pasted between the CPU and heatsink. You may want a technician to do this safely.
