: No IDE? Oh....a SCSI guy. Nice.
Yes, its an old system - and "once upon a time in history" a scsi system was better than IDE :-)
: Do this:
: 1. Make sure that the BIOS is set to non-PnP and Manual.
I have done this already before - but I have done it again :-)
: 2. Uninstall all USB software and unplug all USB devices.
OK - done!
: 3. Boot from the Win2K CD (you may need to use IDE for this). If you cannot boot from the CD, run Win2K setup from within Windows. Press F5 when you first see "Setup is inspecting hardware..."
: 4. Choose Standard PC when prompted.
: 5. Choose Repair > Fast Repair to reapir the OS.
: 6. Reinstall the camera first and try it.
OK - I have done all these steps again - but my configuration was a standard PC - and NOTHING changed ... I always get a black screen when starting the CAM :-(
But I noticed one strange thing - when I have installed the CAM on my other (newer) hardware, the logitech setup found the CAM and here - during the same setup a Message Box from the hardware wizard comes up a tell me a new hardware was found ... the it detects the right components ... the CAM and the microphone ... an then the computer restarts with the open logitech setup message box behind ...
May it be, that the cam video capture software was not installed - because the logitech setup does not finish ???
Is it possible to install the software manually?
Thanks in advance,
