Best, James Hin [email protected] Kyle on Thu, 2nd Apr 2009 8:16 am @James Hin - The issue you mention is something I have seen more with MSN 2009. Why their' webcam can viewed? When you restart the laptop, the webcam should be found as "new hardware" and the proper drivers reinstalled.

But when I want to use is with my msn(8.0.1) it say unable to start cam I went to tools Audio & Video settings,it gives an error un able to run Most are either that the device is not really Vista compatible or that the drivers are incorrect.

Kyle Joe on Thu, 26th Mar 2009 2:00 pm Hi: I use my TC1000 tablet PC to take field notes, I often take photos with a digital camera to support this content I then signed up to take an educational course live online utilizing Interwise as the meeting place. But otherwise, I guess just wait and see or make backup for your files if you are scared of losing or exposing your privacy. =) Helpful +1 Report nerdindenial Jul 1, It does not say anything about the webcam resolution.

If that does not work, the only thing to do is to disable the build in webcam in the Device Manager, after which the external one should become the default used. his comment is here Also try connecting your webcam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one). I use it with text messages and with the web cam.Bruce. I installed it as the manual says but i have only the lowest resolution available (160 x 120).

Thank you. hope this helps Helpful +1 Report melissaknows Feb 15, 2009 at 12:55 AM mcafee is your problem..

I've unistalle deverything 4 times and reinstalled..still no luck..any suggestions? The only thing that I thought of was a power problem, but with a webcam that is not likely as they do not comsume much power (unlike external USB hard disks). Also check the firewall you are using, in some cases they block the MSN ports (see earlier comments).
