Hi I wonder if I could get some help?

I have a webcam which works on my laptop, i want to install it on my desktop, but when i plug it in to my desktop it cuases it to restart, i'm guessing its a driver conflict issue as I used to use a digital camera as a webcam, I dont have the drivers for the webcam and so this leaves me a bit stuck, is there anyone who might be able to help me? as I dont know where to start...
Regards Neil

Download and run everest on your laptop whilst the web cam is connected, it may tell you what the device is called.

There is other software such as belarc adviser, speccy and pcwizard2010 that do the same thing if everest doesn`t name it, just remove the programme in add/remove programmes when you are finished.

Uninstall the present drivers and disconnect the web cam, try the drivers from link/s below; http://www.emprex.co...ownload/G40.zip if no luck try here http://www.ipassion....mera/iP2936.htm
It is possible that there is a driver or device conflict and that is why you are having the issue.

NB: Only attach the camera after you have installed the drivers or if you get a screen message prompting you.
