There really are no other options for installing the driver. Windows XP and Vista have alot of drivers built in, and you can have Windows automatically search for it, but more often than not, especially with new devices, they wont be in the OS, or the OS will pick a generic driver, and the device wont work properly.

There are two ways to install drivers. The first is to autorun the setup.exe file on the CD if the driver was meant to install via a self installation file. In that case, you will see the setup screens come up. The other way is to manually install them by clicking or right clicking on the device and then browsing to the files on the CD. In my experience, drivers dont always install in the method that the manufacturer states in the documetation, and in that case I have always tried the other method, many times with success.

Also, have you tried cleaning your laser head on the CD drive? Try another CD and see if it reads. Periodically you might have to clean it with a CD cleaner disk as electronics pick up dust and dirt.

If this is too confusing, you can email me at trevorag at gmail dot com for more detailed and clearer help.

I cant finde my webcam on ibuypower my laptop after i format it?

you must be having a cd for the webcam when you bought the laptop, that cd contains the software required for the webcam and the driver so install the software from the cd as the webcam is a hardware and a hardware cant perform without a software or a driver.

Lost installation cd of my logitech quickcam messenger 2

regardless of the model, you will be able to find the CD contents for your webcam in the link below.

but if you have a vista usually you won't have to use the CD anymore, if the PC is online just let it search and download the right drivers for your webcam.

good luck.

I lost the cd needed for installation of my GE MiniCam Pro HO98756 Webcam!!

Did you follow explicitly the instructions on page 6 - 8 of the manual of not you will probably need to delete the driver remove the Cameras USB connection from the computer, reboot and perform the install step by step with the instructions.

Is your computer running Vista -- then use the new driver to install.


not Vista
