Re: computer shutting down(logging off)
disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or
Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect
the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
to use it on the Web do this. 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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

Go to Tools,
then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
click on the Video Settings.
camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your
friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you. B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger
) set it up as follows:
Messenger at the top left and click on it.
go down to Preferences and click on it.
Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to
the computer Audio Card.
go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on
“Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left
C. Windows Live Messenger:

This sounds like the On/Off program in the "Programs and Features" section of the computer. On newer computers, there is a feature called "On/Off", and what this does is it keeps power going to the USB ports on the computer so you can charge things and keep things plugged in. Sometimes, if you have certain things plugged into a USB port, and you shut down your computer, the USB ports will "wake" your computer up and turn it back on. Simple things like a wireless mouse will cause this, I know because I use a Logitech Trackball mouse and it's wireless. I had the same issue, and found out that simply flipping the switch on the mouse itself(turning it off), solved my problem. I would recommend either shutting the external devices off when you shut down, or just completely unplug everything from the USB ports(minus the keyboard).
To help you install and configure Sansui webcam with your computer, please follow the step-by-step instructions given below:
Modern webcams require very little user input to install. Most webcams should install themselves automatically after you plug them in. If your webcam doesn't automatically install, all you'll need is the driver file from the manufacturer's website.
- Plug the webcam into a USB port on your computer. If the webcam is built-in to your computer, skip down to Step 4. Plug the webcam directly into your computer, not into a USB hub.
- Wait for the webcam to be installed automatically. Most operating systems will automatically detect and install the necessary software for your webcam. If this doesn't happen, read on.
- You may be prompted to search for the webcam drivers. Your operating system can usually search online automatically.
- Install the software on the disc that came packaged with the webcam. This should install the drivers for the webcam, as well as any additional video software that may come with it. If you don't have the disc, read on.
- Visit manufacturer's support site. If the webcam doesn't install automatically, and you don't have a disc, you can download the drivers from the manufacturer's website.
- Install the downloaded drivers. You may be prompted to restart your computer.
- Open a program that will use your webcam.
1st You download Webcam Driver. Logitech QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks webcam immediatelly shuts down my Compaq laptop as soon as it's plugged into the USB port. After this install the Webcam driver in the system. Installation of Webcam Driver Go to the control panel Click on the System Icon Click on the Hardware Tab Click on the Device Manager s Select the Unknown Device or printer device where yellow Question Marks sign on it. Right click on it and uninstall it. After this go to the top of the device manager and click on scan for hardware changes. Driver installation Wizard start. Brows Your Driver from the Hard Disk and click on next. Driver will be install.
A bluescreen error is rarely a good sign, but sometimes it's fixable. Have you tried plugging the webcam into a different USB port? Also have you tried unplugging some unnecessary USB devices and then using the webcam? You may be draining too much power from the PSU with USB devices and the PC shuts down to prevent damage. Have you been able to test on a different computer to see if the problems happens there as well?
Start- right click my computer - properties - hardware - device manager. Click on the + signs to expand links, find your camera, is there any question or exclamation marks showing, is so, right click & see what it says.
If nothing shows up as wrong, un-install your cam in device manager, restart your computer,(cam unplugged) when up & running, plug your cam back in & system will see it as new device & install it.
Hope this helps your issue.
Have a nice day.
How much memory do you have installed in your
computer? It may need to be, increased, as this is likely to be the cause
of your computer freezing, rebooting, or shutting down.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
Instead of plugging the webcam in after the computer is running, I plugged in while it was shut down. The first time the computer booted with the webcam attached it took approximatly 2 minutes longer to boot, but every boot after has been as fast as ever. Webcam works great now!
