Last month I bought a webcam from a store with mini DVD driver included. I install the driver and connect my web can also.
I was asked to restart the system.
I restart to check the performance but it shows hardware error please reinstall message.
What should I do?
I got Web Cam setup error.
This happens several times. Here are ways to fix it:
uninstall the webcam driver using device manager in control panel then try to install again. remove the webcam during these process if it is possible. connect it when u installed the driver! or try reinstalling software! or check for updated version of software or driver for webcam.
Another way is to go to the Control Panel – Device Manager – Imaging – write down make and model of camera – double click on it and on driver's tab get version. Now click Update Drivers (which may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers). The RIGHT CLICK on the camera – UNINSTALL – REBOOT – this will refresh the driver stack.Now go to System Maker's site and download the latest camera driver and other related camera software (if no newer get the same ones).
I hope this works coz it works for me. Thank you
