Microsoft Lifecam Hd 5000 No Picture

I have just bought the microsoft lifecam hd-5000 and have installed it, and reset my computer. I am running windows 7 64bit by the way. When i open lifecam up it says 'there is no camera connected to this computer' but when i connected it to the usb port it detected it and installed the drivers. I cannot use it on msn messenger either, but for some reason it works on justin. Tv. I've tried running lifecam as admin but no success. Please help i just spent $130 on this webcam. I have also tried different usb ports and reinstalling.

Blurry User Account Picture

I'm using windows 7 home premium and i'm having an issue with the user account picture. At the top of the start menu, the picture appears to be slightly blurred, no matter what size the source image is. In the user accounts section of the control panel, however, the same picture is sharp and scaled properly. Is there any way to fix this?Here's a link to a comparison shot (left - start menu, right - control panel):http://img171. Imageshack. Us/img171/2056/w7issue.png

Microsoft Lifecam Vx 3000 Is Not Working

I have upgraded to windows 7 and am trying to re-install my lifecam vx-3000 but wen i do i get a message stating the cam "is not working" and "the program will close". I have installed the drivers from microsoft (lifecam 3. 2) and nothing. I even tried to re-install from disc but this said it was not compatible with windows 7 ( it was lifecam 1. 4). So i now have a web cam that i cannot use yet is supposed to be compatible with windows 7. I was on xp before and had the same problem updating the drivers- the exact same problem occurred then so i had to stay with the disc but now i can't even do that. Any help on what to do now please?

Blurry Graphics

I bought a laptop last month with vista already installed, got the free upgrade to windows 7 and installed it. Now i seem to have a graphics problem. After being on the computer for a while, some of the words and numbers are going blurry, they have lines going through them, making it impossible to read them. This is happening in my spider solitaire game that came with windows, and also my games from bigfish, and spintop. I have downloaded all the updates for drivers etc, and tried lots of the ideas posted online, but not being a techy am not sure what to try next. Any help would be appreciated.

Fuzzy / Blurry Screen

Sometimes my entire desktop screen will go blurry or fuzzy when i close a window. By blurry i mean, fine lines running from left to right. When i move the cursor over the icons, they go back to normal, but the desktop background will stay blurry. Sometimes it clears on its own, but sometimes i have to restart the computer to see anything. I just got a new game and this issue is making it impossible to read the text within the game. This is not a game bug, i've had this problem since the upgrade from vista. I got a free upgraded to windows 7 from dell, so i don't know if this a dell issue or a ms issue? Has anyone else had this problem?

Edimax Ethernet Card 10/100/1000 Lan Card Problem

I have windows seven (new to it) there was a problem with my onboard ethernet controller (it seems that 7 does not support it though it's installed) so i bought a new edimax ethernet card 10/100/1000 with realtek 1869 chipset. This card should be fully supported by win 7 (since its written on it and has a special driver to win 7).

I installed the card and everything went well, after wakening my pc from sleep mod it took him a long time to recognize the ethernet cable and when it did i had no internet access, restarted the computer and then again after restarting the same problem recognized the cable but no internet access, tried unplug and plug the cable, this time it helped i got the internet back.

Every time i shutdown the pc or it was in a sleep mod i have the same problem with the no internet access thing. What shall i do?

Lifecam Having Trouble With Live Messenger

My lifecam vx-6000 has often given me troubles with wlm but i eventually got it to work after updating the drivers. Somewhat. It appears my webcam will only work if i do an "actual call" as in have my video and audio going. If a contact tries to invite me to show just my webcam (with no sound/microphone so just webcam) on their end it says i have declined the invitation and refuses to work. I dont seem to have a button on my end that invites the person to the same thing, i appear to only be able to do calls. My friend has also gone to another computer and invited me, the same thing happens.

The problem must be on my end. This is rather upsetting, the webcam appears to work with any other application but it has this one little problem with windows messenger. I would just like to be able to see my friend without having to do a "full on call" which can be rather bandwidth heavy on my poor internet.

Lifecam Cinema Sound Not Working

Last week i brought my pc to the store and the put a new hd in my machine and the put the image of the old hd on this new hd. Now i am having a problem with the sound microphone on my lifecam cinema. Basically i can get the picture to work but as soon it tries to capture sound, it stops working. It get the following error message in lifecam software: lifecam could not record your photo, audio clip, or video clip. See "troubleshooting and product support" in lifecam help for more information". As a result, i can not use skype. I know that the webcam is working since i tried it on my xp laptop and it just worked fine. I guess i could do a complete format of my drive and everything would probably start working again but i hope to avoid that exercise.

Lifecam Cinema Stop Recording Audio

I purchased a lifecam cinema to record a conference that i was attending. Install went as expected, i updated to the latest version of the software lifecam3. 22.exe and installed the latest hardware patches in cinema fw 1033_3. 20.exe. I recorded 4 days at the conference and when i returned home and started to look at the videos all of the files had differing points where the audio just stopped being recorded.

It seems that any adjustments to the zoom or pan settings cause the audio recording to stop. I have tried recording with debut video capture and it had similar problems where the audio and the video got way ot of step and the software reported dropping video frames but the audio was intact. Anyone else having these sort of issues.

Attaching A Picture In Outlook

I can open my pictures directly from the start button. I see all my photos and it says there are 2 locations. C:usersname my pictures and c:userspublic my pictures. I can navigate from the computer prompt to either of these directories. They both show up and i can access the photos. The problem. When i am using outlook and try to attach a picture, i navigate to c:usersname but there is no my pictures folder showing?

Alternatively, i can also open documents from the start menu and there are 2 folders listed as my pictures. I am denied access to both. I am logged on as administrator and the permissions seem to be set to allow me access. On my other pc, i see the same thing (2 folders), but i can access the folder that is showing as a shortcut.

I don't know if these situations are related, but i'm stumped right now on getting outlook to browse to a folder that i can access my pictures from. Any help will be appreciated.

Folder Picture Customization

I have windows 7 professional running upgraded from xp home. We have music on an external hard drive and on the computer. On both the external and the internal hard drive all our folders we had customized with the cd cover on the folder. It stayed present on them for about 3 weeks then out of no where most of the customizations fell off. This has happened with xp twice and now with windows 7 pro. I have been searching to figure this out and am at a loss. I really like the way the folders look with the cd cover on them, but dont want to constantly fix them. I have over 800 folders with cd covers on them. I need help.

Picture Import Settings

I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

Desktop Picture Change To Black

Why does my desktop picture change to black. I know i don't have it set to change every so many minutes because i've not set that and it also just goes to black! My aunt's computer with windows 7 does the same thing. I've not been able to figure out why this happens. I can set a desktop theme even, download one from the internet, the wallpaper is set to whatever the theme sets it to, looks great, then within about 10 minutes or so, pow! The background goes to black! Any idea why this happens?

Excel Insert Picture Does Not Display

We have 2 identical dell systems, one with xp and one with windows 7, both running office 2007. When i create an excel document on the windows 7 system and use the insert picture option, the document will open on other systems but the picture does not display (just the outline of the box). If i create this same document on the xp system everyone can open the document and see the picture. The file is being saved on a server running windows server 2003. Even systems running windows 2000 can open the xp version of the document. I don't know how to solve this problem other than to downgrade to xp (not a pleasant experience).

Picture Slide Inside Of Folder

On windows xp there was a way to make a picture slide inside of a folder. So what it would look like is. Say you have 10 pictures inside a folder. Upon opening that folder. There would be one big picture in the center of the screen, and underneath were tiny icons of all your other pictures. And all you had to do was click the left or right button to browse through them. Or simply click on another picture to view it.

Is there a way to do this in windows 7? Or am i stuck with just large icons and the slide show option?
