Computers!

We bought a new computer base unit on Friday, with Vista, got it home, plugged it in and away I went. Borrowed my sons monitor, (he is away till later today, (Monday)), as I won't get a new one till tomorrow, (Tuesday). Everything was going fine, put some software on which I wanted, Logitech Quickcam (I have used the same webcam for nearly 6 years). Then, last evening, Explorer just would not load up, also a message was coming up with the webcam which I have never seen before. Went to bed really worried, but had my suspicions that it could be the Logitech software.

So this morning I decided to remove the Logitech software, and hey presto, Explorer worked a treat. How relieved I was too. Which means that I must buy a new webcam that will run, without complication, with Vista.

Sue, I use a logitech cam....I loaded vista and went into logitech site and loaded updated drivers for vista...works fine now

I wish I had try to install it Johnno, it has caused me so many problems. I really feel like screaming. It's worrying now, if I try and put another webcam on, (I have seen a webcam that is for Vista), it may not work properly.

Sorry, I mean I wish I hadn't tried to install it. It's late, getting tired, things aren't making sense at the moment.

I hope they also gave you the Vista discs with the computer, as it's illegal to sell a computer loaded up, and without the discs. Make sure Sue...and good luck.

In the six weeks I have had vista there where no real problems n.As Johnno said you probably need to update the drivers from logitech or Amcap.Vista is like the change over from win 98 to win xp, it just takes time to adjust. Nero was a problem.As Patty said make sure you get the discs or you nwill have trouble next time you need to add software like drivers
