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

Logetech quick cam driver to install web cam


Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to run the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

HP Deluxe Webcam w/ Vista Home Premium 32Bit - Has Sound No Video


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

No luck ? download this diagnostic tool and run it through

http://www.download32.com/webcam-diagnostics-d35065.html

Don't worry about the first alert - I always get that.

Webcams run on support software some on flashplayer some shockwave player and some Activex - so make sure these are in place and up to date - check the support software against the machine the webcam works in.

The USB port you are using needs to be checked out as well

Webcam software is notorious for getting locked on to programs that you have been using - I often have to reboot my software by unplugging the cam for a couple of seconds when changing from Skype to Yahoo for example

If the software in the Imaging folder is not being used you could uninstall it in case you have a conflict.

Have you tried to update the driver from the Device Manager ? expand the folder and click on the webcam text - update driver using internet option.
Please post any feedback that may be useful to other users

If the image is better here than on your computer uninstall the webcam software and download new software here

make sure its available before uninstalling.

I have Vista Home Premium, I can uninstall my webcam software and when I re-boot the computer it will search for software automatically.

make sure the following INF installed in %windir%\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.
