Uninstall any driver for webcam and unplug webcam
1) reinstall drivers make sure they are for your operating system
2) when driver installed it should come up with a screen asking you to plug camera in. if not reboot when drivers installed and then plug camera in then it should be found and installed . this method works most of the time any USB device should not be plugged in until drivers installed

I am not a computer person.I was wondering if logitech webcam C250h will work with skype?


Yes, I have a Logitech WEBcam (not the same model) and I use Skype.
After you installed Skype then :-
To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video.
If this works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam
Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.
Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub.

Frozen video on calls


Try putting the camera under VFW (Video For Windows) control - it involves a registry edit and can be found here
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamfix.html
It didnt work for me at first - I had to download the windows amcap as well. VFW doubled my fps
If you open the 'webcam' menu on the webcam picture frame and also open 'Statistics' you can monitor the f/p/s during transmission - Generally try and keep the frames per second above 1.0 fps to prevent freezing. I transmit the 'small image' with my contacts and they zoom up to 200% -all on the webcam frame menu. When you open 'Statistics' you can tell if you are on VFW control - it will say VFW along the lower panel.
I also increased my virtual memory following an error message.

Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:
  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Logitech Quickcam for Notebooks Pro


Start by checking that you have no device conflicts. Look in your device manager for any asterisk's or explication points. It is possible the drive was not installed properly. It is a common problem with vista.
