Remove 1 your new ram and see if computer ok
check system/control panel/device driver check for any yellow marks on them if so right click/properties drivers and either uninstall them or up grade them
I think you have a driver conflict

I have windows vista and the c260 webcam and it will not install to my computer it says the program is not companionable with my computer?


It means that you don't have a good enough graphics card, or camera, or depending on the cameras make, computer. If you still have the receipt return the camera for a new one, but first write down your computers Ram, Processor, and Graphics Card by going to the start menu > right-click computer > properties. When you chose a new camera make sure it will match up with that same information.

My Screen freezes then goes blank


I had already done the things that your expert suggested. This morning I purchased a new web cam but the same problem occurred. I took my computer back to the shop where I had just had a new motherboard, graphics card, processor and RAM put into my computer. They managed to solve the problem as it was the problem with 'frame rates per second' that the graphics card was set at. It was on 60 but should be on 85fps. What he did was Rt Click on desktop, > properties, > settings, > advanced > monitor to change the settings. Now problem is solved.

QuickCam Pro 9000 problem (Vista 64 bit)


make sure the following INF installed in %windir%\inf?

* usb.inf
* wdmaudio.inf
* wdma_usb.inf

The usb.inf is likely missing. Download it and place it in the windows\inf folder. Then remove all logitech drivers and software and re-install.

Image freezes


My computer freezes every time I use my camera. What can I do?
trnsp.gif Answer Normally if a camera freezes after a few seconds, it is related to the USB chipset you are running. Some chipsets do not have enough bandwidth to support a camera. Make sure you are plugging the camera directly into the computer while testing and unplug any other USB devices you may have except a keyboard or a mouse.
To resolve the issue, we recommend using the USB troubleshooting steps detailed in Troubleshooting USB Issues.
If you have the same issue but do not have the USB chipsets discussed in the document, please make sure you have the latest version of the Logitech camera software AND the latest version of DirectX.
You may also want to slow down the hardware acceleration. To do this, right click on the desktop and choose Properties. Click on Advanced/troubleshoot. Lower the hardware acceleration, apply any changes and try the camera again.
If you are running Windows XP, please make sure you have the latest sound card, video card and Windows XP updates. You can get the sound card and video card updates from the card manufacturers or PC manufacturers web site. You can get the Windows XP updates from Microsoft. With the release of any new operating system, we suggest that you check for updates to the operating system and hardware drivers. These updates can resolve many video streaming issues.
