  • Microsoft Lifecam Vx 800 won't work.

    Hi, I can't get this cam to work. In Windows live messenger, it detects sound via the microphone, but the camera does not work.

    Ive had a quick glance at the resolution of the problems on the microsoft Web site, and none of the solutions seem to work.

    Method 1: When I am looking for the drivers I can't find. Theres no "microsoft lifecam" in program files or System 32.

    No other methods seem to work, I went into the registry but I can't find the Manager to Logitec so I guess that that is correctly uninstalled.

    Im stuck help would be appreciated.


    1. are you able to use the webcam in other messengers or applications?

    This problem occurs when one of the following conditions is true:
    a. you have previously installed a Logitech Webcam.
    b. the LifeCam drivers are not well established.

    Have you tried the suggestions in the article below?
    I would ask you to try the methods listed in the article below and check if it works.

    I have upgraded to windows 7 and I'm trying to re - install my LifeCam VX-3000 but wen I do, I get a message indicating the cam "does not work" and "the program will close."

  • Microsoft Lifecam VX-2000 shows black video when the software is installed

    Original title: Microsoft Lifecam VX-2000

    I just bought and followed the installation instructions to install and operate the lifecam vx-2000.

    I tried first to find this product on the support webpage itself, but it has not been listed with the other lifecams. I have no idea why, because he is supposed to be a site of support for their products...

    My computer meets the requirements for the software.

    However, after the installation, I opened the microsoft lifecam software, the program screen is black.

    There is no error message. Just a black screen.

    I uninstalled the program and tried to connect the webcam without software and when I opened it upward through Skype video settings to see if she would recognize the camera - he did.

    So I'm a bit puzzled as to why the software will not work with the camera.

    Thus, once the software is loaded on the computer, the video from the camera stops working, until the program is removed once more my computer.

    A little disappointed and do not know how to solve this problem.

    Any suggestions or methods to solve this problem will be appreciated.

    Hello, Annick,.

    You mentioned first validation that you were unable to find the XP driver, is this always the case?

    Win XP driver is available here:

    Follow the same instructions above.

    Before installing LifeCam driver make sure that you have at least Windows XP Service Pack 2. You can download service packs using these links:

    Service pack 2:

    Service pack 3:

    Activate the automatic update in the control panel: the parameters of control of configuration\systeme and Maintenance\Windows Update\Change

    Kind regards
