Resolution change on my lap top screen when I load my webcam

I recently loaded on to my lap top Skype and with it I loaded a Logitech Quickcam Express and down loaded up dated soft ware from Logitech.When I open up the webcam it changes my lap tops screen resolution from 32bit colour quality and resolution 1280x800 to 8bit and 640x480 resolution. Whilst the webcam picture remains fine. If I need to change lap tops screen resolution, each time I have to go into properties and change manualy. If I remove the webcam program from my task bar my screen reverts back to 32 bit and resolution 1280x800. Help!!!!

I had this problem on my PC and I tried everything from updating drivers to re installing the software and updating my graphics card but nothing seemed to work.
And then as a last resort I right clicked on the icon on my desktop and chose properties and clicked on the Compatability tab and unchecked on display settings Run in 640x480 screen resolution.
This worked and did not affect the webcam in anyway.

You may have to update your graphics drivers, as they are obviously conflicting, with either Skype or the cam software, try the camera in the Logitech software or windows movie maker; without the skype programme running.

Wat is the dpi of logitech express/go webcam?

The Logitech QuickCam Express is 0.3Mp resolution, which is 640x480 pixels (VGA). Not very good for webcam standards these days. Here is a good primer on webcam specs and features.

Quickcam for SKYPE

Hopefully you have not loaded the quickcam software yet. If you have, hopefully you only loaded the drivers for the cam and not the logitech control panel for the camera. If you loaded the control panel, it loads everytime you start your computer and runs minimized in the bottom status bar. When you start Skype, it activates the camera and so does the logitech control panel. Thus you have two programs trying to control the cam at the same time and you have nothing but problems thying to get it to work. You will need to right click on the logitech control icon and exit the program before starting Skype. After you start Skype got to tools, options and set your camera and mic. settings from the drop down menu. You can then go to Skype test call and see if the settings are correct. Skype allows you to turn on the video or off when you make calls to others. This is so they can't see you, but you can see them during the call unless they have theirs turned off also. Good Luck, RAC

He will have to go back to an older version of the Logitech QuickCam software. I don't know how far he has to go back. I had the same problem and went back to version 9.5 and the problem went away.

You can find older version of Logitech's QuickCam software on their FTP site.
