Re: webcam restarts pc????? arrggghhhhh
There are a number of things that can cause the camera to
freeze up the computer or the camera. First I’d check to see how much memory is
installed in the computer.It takes
additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps.Bud

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.
Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)
CONFIGURE SOFTWARE to MSN Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software. If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Open MSN Click 'Open Menu' From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup' Set your speakers Click 'Test' - if OK, move on. Set your mic as default Use the slider to set volume and test. Click 'Next' This takes you to the video setup Your webcam should be broadcasting - (if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN) Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture. Click 'Finish'
As you know this are mostly the problem with yahoo messenger... we are using different kind of operating system... All you have to do is reformat/reinstall your operating to run back normal again. Why I give you this tip because even how many times your going to uninstall it, nothing will happen, changing directories on it at not possible to fix it. Only reformat/reinstall the system is necessary. Good luck!
Are you using Flash Player on MSN? This sounds like you need to turn on access from the flash player setting menu. This sounds like another issue with the latest update of flash player. Also, you might try 'unchecking' the box for 'use hardware acceleration' in the flash player settings.
The type of pc is not as important as the type of webcam at this point. The story also needs more details.
If you had a Logtec webcam and at first it only worked with its custom made software, what did you do to make it work with MSN? ---------------- Based of the info provided, I would 1. uninstall all cam software while the cam is unpluged,
2. Reboot the pc. Then plug the cam in.
3. When windows detects the cam, it will ask for drivers, do not click on search on windows update website, click the option to choose from a specific location and then browse to the cd provided.
4. Try and load msn now. The msn website or the cam company sometimes have a patch to make the cam and the messenger work together. I would check the cam website before looking around the microsoft site.
