What was the nature/cause of the original crash?
What was the actual wording of the message? Any error codes for example.>>>
Installation of win 10.
When did the message appear: e.g., when you tried to install the webcam drivers? Or when you attempted to use the webcam? >>> After inserting the LifeCam disc and clicked on setup, I got the following message: "The webCam is blocked due to compatibility issues. Check for online solutions. I did and nothing showed up.
Another thought is that the webcam drivers were upgraded along the way and the original drivers on the Win 7 disk are now defunct.>>> When I reused the Win 7 disc and updated the drivers that were on that disc, I did not have the WebCam attached.
Are you able to test the webcam on another known working computer? >>>The only other pc i have is a notebook that only has Win 10;
Or test another known working webcam on your computer? >>> Don't have an extra cam.
Determine if the problem stays with your computer or follows the webcam and/or its' drivers.>>> ?????
