BSOD With Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000

I have a Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 and I can connect it and install all the drivers but when I go to use it I get a BSOD, this has happened with all builds so far accept for I think it was build 6936 x64, also windows update gave me a driver which I installed with the same result.

Has anyone else tried a web cam or had any problems and if so have you found any solutions?

i have this same problem with my E3500 logitech cam & windows 7.....

i can use skype with the new BETA but i cant touch camera setting b/c it will crash..
if skype is not running & i try to configure the camera it will lock the explorer & i have to log out...

it could be a problem with webcams in general...

I have the lifecam vx 6000 and it works fine on my copy of Windows 7 build 7000 32bit and has always worked on the previous versions...

i wish it would install the drivers for it automatically instead of having to load up the lifecam program tho thats pretty annoying...

I sent Feedback on the problem, so I hope this doesn't get overlooked as Microsoft may be very embarrassed if the thousands of people who have one of these Cams are not able to use Microsoft own products without a BSOD, it would certainly not do there reputation any good.

Well at least they have that one working which is good because I was wanting to upgrade to that one.

Doubt it - remember, I am still steaming about buying a KB in June 2007, then less than a year later building a new machine, moving to Vista x64 - and not being able to use the fingerprint reader anymore.

M$ has no qualms about relegating their (even relatively new) hardware to legacy status.

I have a LifeCam VX 3000 and I get an error when it tries to install the driver. Very weird. It was working on my 64bit version of Vista but not on Windows 7 Build 7000 64bit.
I'm trying to find a solution, otherwise back to vista.

To install the driver go to device manager and do a driver update on your device and select your install disc location and it will find the drivers and install them, I had that problem too and that is what worked for me.

That worked thanks. Weird how the old drivers off the install cd work but the new ones from the website don't.

Thanks.

So in your device manager is it showing any devices as faulty or are all your drivers installed correctly?
