    Well I tried it and it didn't work. The webcam seems to work on things such as skype just not over the web. Plus I got an error message called error 5. Does that mean anything?

    Well like I said, I tested all the drivers and the way it was installed for all the cameras. Everything was fine on that end. The thing is, like I said the camera, worked perfectly on skype and my web cam recording software. Thing is, every time I used it, I would have to change the source of the webcam. So when I go onto the web it uses Adobe Flash Player 10 as the source for the streaming media. Problem is I had no clue where the Flash Player was getting the source for the web cam when I'm on the internet. Finally I went onto a webcam website and it wasn't until by accident, I clicked deny, the camera Adobe Flash Player 10 asked me where it should be getting the video source. Then I was able to tell it to use the VGA Usb Webcam. Worked perfectly after that. So it's not so much a problem with the drivers or the software to run the drivers. It's more aproblem with a Adobe Flash Player 10! Where it just assumes the video format is the first thing it senses as video hardware, and won't even let you change that in the system properties. You won't even get prompted about it until after you click deny on the website! So yeah now it's working and thanks for trying to help.

Not just the driver but proper configuration of the web cam, in the application in which you need to use is necessary... Therefore look into your application help for configuring the web cam... be sure that the driver you have install is supported by the your OS different OS versions supports different drivers.... and in rare case the web cam can be faulty so also check whether the same web cam is support the application on the other PC...
Hope this has helped you.. Thanks...

Having problems installing or with the install of your all in one

The biggest problems people report having are: my scanner doesnt work; it wont communicate; the install wont completly install; it prints and copies but it wont scan.
here is what i feel is probably the most important thing to remember when installing any all in one.

1:disconnect from the web and disable your antivirus prior to begining your installation of your new all in one.

reason: many antivirus software programs see scanner drivers as virus like activity and will prevent thier installation in part or as a whole.

If you are downloading drivers or installation software from the web. Save the files to you desk top. disconnect from the web,disable your antivirus, and run the install from the desktop
