Rosewill Web Cam not working with Vista 32..

Q: Rosewill Web Cam not working with Vista 32..

I am starting to think this thing is defective... Is a Rosewill RCM-3201V web cam that I bought for skype, etc.. I plugged it in and windows detected it, installed drivers, said it was good to go. However, camera is unuseable. Tried windows movie maker, and it is not listed as an available camera. Then, after installing the software on the disk that came with the camera, I see the icon in the bottom right by the clock, and it states the camera is connected. However, all the options with that icon are all greyed out. It detects it, but it is un-useable..

Any advice appreciated!!

I have a Rosewill RNX-N250PCe Wireless Adapter which doesn't work. I did as the quickstart guide said: Install drivers from cd, shut down, install card, and then reboot. The Network and Sharing Center says no connections are available and windows troubleshooter says there is a problem with the Wireless Adapter Driver. I tried updated drivers from Rosewill's website, still nothing. At this point I'm about ready to give up. If anyone has any advice or would like additional information, please post a reply. Thanks.

Hello, I have a question on a Rosewill router. The routing number is RNX-EasyN4 and I must say it is not an easy installation. I can not figure how to connect this wireless internet. I connected it as the directions say, but I cannot connect to the internet when I do so. I did the wizard setup and still can't connect. Is there something I need to provide or do inorder for it to work?
 

A:Rosewill modem?

What kind of Internet do you have? Cable, DSL? From your ISP's (Internet Service Provider) modem, connect a network cable from the modem to the wireless routers proper input. Your computer will have to be temporarily hard-wired to the wireless router to setup the wireless router for the first time. Can you log in to the router? Depending on using DSL or Cable, the router settings for DSL are a bit more complicated than the Cable settings

I bought a 25 dollar rosewill full atx case from newegg about a year and a half ago that came with a 350W atx psu. Somehow it ran for 1 year running a full atx pentium 3 mobo with 3 hd's and a combo drive, lan card, modem, video card, and a fan. Then it ran for about 2 months on my micro atx mobo with a amd athlon 64 3200+, 4 80mm fans, 1 120mm fan, 2 hd's, combo drive, modem, and a nvidia 8600GT. Somehow it ran all that time with no problems ever. So i went with a new Rosewill Stallion 500w psu, and it hasen't given me a problem yet.
 

A:Rosewill - diamond in the rough?

I've heard very mixed things about Rosewill. I personally own a 17" Rosewill LCD (now a backup monitor since I have a Samsung 226bw) which I've had since about 2005-2006 I think. Never had any issue, worked wonderfully and still does. I also am using one of their PSU's on my current rig, so far so good - been running 4 months with the PC on for days at a time.

My usb 2.0 wireless N adapter doesn't work with Windows 8 Release, although the Windows 7 drivers worked with the developer preview.
Is there any way I can get this to work, I can't connect via ethernet.

Drivers are here
Rosewill.com - Computer Case, Power Supply, Computer Accessories, Networking, Peripherals. Price, Quality, and Services.

A:Rosewill RNX-N150HG Drivers

I have the same problem. Although I've only tried with the RTM version. If you try to install the driver the same way you do in windows 7 via the setup.exe in compatibility mode of win7 then it will detect the OS to be XP and will give you the option to either install with the wireless client or just the drivers. I tried to just install just the drivers and it did complete the installation but the usb adapter still didn't detect that the drivers were installed. I'm guessing in that case it installed the XP drivers. So if you select to install with the wireless client it will give the you the "irql_not_less_or_equal" error upon restart.

So since none of that above worked I decided to go through the device manager. So I put the folder for Windows 7 x64 from the installation cd on the desktop and removed the cd from the computer just to make sure it wouldn't try to use the XP driver. It detected it and tried to install it but came up with an error of "The hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering." I've also tried the driver from the Rosewill site both version 1 and 1.1 and both got the same error.I won't be using windows 8 on my desktop until they release a new driver or I'm able to just use ethernet.

I just put in a Rosewill RC200 IDE adapter not so much fore raid but to use an alternate data channel from the fialed ones on an old Tyan Trinty motherboard.

The device works fine but is not set up for raid.

The question is that the board has a header for the HDD activity plug from the LED harness
on the case which normall indicates drive activity when plugged into the motherboard.

I have tried all sorts of pin combinations to the header on the Rosewill but still no LED
activity.

If the board is component side up with the tail facing right and the pins are

1 2

3 4

which set will turn on the activity LED. the manual just indicates the header and
not how it's plugged. The wirews on the HDD plug are orange and white-- white assmedly ground.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware, software, or internet transmission problem. My new RCM-3201V Rosewill webcam seems to sometimes work, sometimes not. Sometimes it will show my picture as mostly green and pink, almost unrecognizable. Sometimes the photos freeze or the words skip or repeat. Other times it works fine. My internet is via an antenna to a nearby tower, not satellite, and not a wired system. I suspect that might be the problem? Any ideas?

Can two of these 2TB Seagate STBD2000101 drives:

be put in this Rosewill R2-JBOD enclosure:

Also, I have a Windows 7 computer that is around 4 years old. On older computers, drives that are over 2TB may not work. If I put the two 2TB Seagate drives in the enclosure, there will be 4TB total space. Should that probably work on my computer if I select JBOD on the enclosure? If I select JBOD, won't the computer see the two drives as two separate drives instead of one big 4TB drive?

A:Rosewill RX-358 ext. hardrive. Safe to operate with fan off?

Personally I would suggest not too....because heat is the number one factor in HDD failures. Having a look at the link you provided and reading through some of the feedback posts, over all the unit has a good rating. There are a few that mention leaving the fan on when unit is plugged in due to the overheating issue.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently looking at this case for my new build. It seems like a nice cheap case for my build, but I'm worried about its size. I'm getting a GTX 570 which is 10.5 inches long and I've read a couple of reviews about people having trouble fitting shorter cards in there, but some reviews said that largers ones like the 570/580 could fit.

I'm just wondering if anyone had this case and could give me some insight on this. Currently this is the only thing stopping me from deciding on this case.

I was also looking at the Cooler Master HAF 922 which plenty of reviews say anything can fit in there, but its costs twice as much.

Thank you

This case:

Hi,

First post.. I just installed Windows 7 and for the most part all went ok. The only issue I seem to be having concerns my Rosewill RC-200 IDE raid card. Card works fine as an IDE card. However, I cannot get the raid functions to work.

The card uses a ?Silicon Image SiI 0680 ATA-133 Medley Raid Controller? chipset. The only thing I found a bit odd about the install was that W7 recognized the card and installed its own drivers instead of asking for drivers supplied by the manufacture. Not sure if this is an issue or not, but I have had to remove the raid set for now until I figure out what is wrong

Most of my hardware is new, MSI 770-C45 mobo, EVGA 9500GT video, Rosewill RC-200 PCI card.
I plan on calling the manufacture on Monday but thought I would check to see if anyone else has had this particular problem.
Regards,
Danny

A:Rosewill RC-200 raid card issues with Windows 7

There should be no issues using PATA and SATA in the same system.

You can replace the single connector with a dual connector cable with no problems. You can either do it Master/Slave or CS should work as well.

tomshardware post I googled said it could, but to be more specific, I would be using a single 7850 at first but xfiring later on when 7850s are cheaper. They would be alongside a FX-8120 (or whatever similarly priced piledriver, when they come out) and a single basic HDD, with maybe an SDD later. Also 3 case fans (pretty insignificant) and the coolermaster hyper 212 plus. I wouldnt be PLANNING on overclocking a significant amount, but if I will be pushing the PSU just running 2GPUs/FX at stock, id probably go for a slightly higher specced one. just wanted some more opinions.

There isn't anything you can be doing wrong. If it's connected properly, the PC will work (which appears to be the case).

In general, Rosewill hardware is mediocre at best. In any case, it sounds like it's failing. Time to get a replacement.

To start off I'll tell how it all happened First almost months ago I bought a PCI Card Wireless my PCI HD Rosewill Audio Broke N300 Realtek Wireless card from newegg it came in a week later and it was defective I returned it for a new Rosewill N300 PCI Wireless Card Broke my Realtek HD Audio one and got it another two weeks later Very slow shipping It was working but when I installed what was on the disk it came with my HD Audio Manager went wacky and said I was plugging in and out audio devices I just clicked OK on all of them So I got good speeds but I realized I hadn't any audio coming from my speakers The realtek HD audio was set to default playback device and both ports on the audio jack were securely in It simply wouldn't work A restart didn't fix it either So I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the PCI Wireless card a couple of times restarting time after time just going through troubleshooting processes in hope that one would fix it So during the process after the first time of uninstalling I found the card defective again only giving Mb s download speed just as the first defective card Over the whole convoluted process I hadn't fixed my speakers my mouse drivers broke so I had to put it into a different port and I have another defective PCI wireless card So my question is how would I fix my speakers The speakers are in my monitor and what it's usually named is Realtek HD Audio or something but now it's named High Definition Audio Device Are there any fixes I can try Or is more information needed Thanks

A:Rosewill N300 PCI Wireless Card Broke my Realtek HD Audio

High Definition Audio Device indicates that the generic basic function Windows installed audio drivers are installed instead of your RealTek.

Reinstall the RealTek, either from the installation disc that came with the motherboard or from the ASUS site for your specific model motherboard.

As far as the Rosewill PCI card, first you should be using a PCIe card, not a PCI as the PCI bus on most newer motherboards is a "bridge" to the PCIe bus and many PCI cards do not function correctly with the bridged PCI slot. Second, I would get something other than Rosewill, which tends to be a "cheaper" brand.

Another issue I see is two Antivirus programs. Having two programs, like you show (Microsoft Security Essentials and Avast) will conflict and can cause many problems. I, and all my clients, only use the Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes (for malware/spyware).

Hey, so I have a dualboot Vista + Linux (Ubuntu Hardy). I burned about 6 DVDs using K3B (a popular linux burning software) using UDF. When i insert them into my Sony AW G170-A in Vista, it doesnt work in Windows Explorer, it just shows 0 bytes free of 4.37 GB. and when i double-click it, there's no data inside. The files i burnt are a couple mkv videos. However, in poweriso, when i press the copy button it copies the contents correctly to a .iso!! The DVD also works fine in Ubuntu. Help Please? I've searched the entire WWW!!

Since IE7 is apparently integrated with Vista I can't uninstall and reinstall it. How can I get IE7 to work?

Note: I installed Firefox the day I got my laptop and haven't tried IE7 since, so it might've stopped working earlier.

This is despite me having the latest soundmax drivers (for my Asus mobo) and the remaining 3.1 speakers making sounds if I use the test speakers button in the sound options of control panel.

A:Vista x64 5.1 not working

This is what someone else tried and apparently worked for them.






""I dual boot with Windows XP and on the XP side the X-Fi drivers are pretty much workingly perfectly at this point. However on my Vista 64 side I quickly identify three issues that always seem to come up.

Speaker configuration not properly detected. Even though Vista is setup for 5.1 sound, the drivers default to 2.0. Even if the speakers are changed to 5.1 in the Creative control panels, I still only get 2.0 sound. Creative settings reset everytime the computer reboots. Can not hear mic.

Speaker Configuration:
It sounds like the CTXFIREG.exe process is suppose to be the one that detects that I have a 5.1 speaker configuration in the Windows audio control panel and synchronize this setting with the Creative control panels, but it doesn’t. To fix this I just launch the Creative Console Launcher. Go into each of the three modes, Game, Entertainment, and Audio Creation, and set the speakers to 5.1 manually. But don’t do that just yet until you see the next paragraph.

2.0 Sound from 5.1 Speakers:
Even after I manually set my speakers to 5.1 in the Creative control panel, and I successfully hear test tones from all 5 speakers, I will still only hear 2.0 sound from games and movies. I found the fix for this is to launch the Creative Console Launcher, go to Game Mode and press the default button. This resets the speakers back to 2.0, but now when I select 5.1, I’ll actually hear 5.1 from my games and movies. Repeat this for the Entertainment Mode too. Make sure Audio Creation is still set to 5.1 mode, but it has no Default reset button for this mode (I don’t really use this mode anyway).

Creative Settings Reset:
Unfortunately after you’ve fixed your speaker out configuration and you got your movies and games sounding right, you might find that after rebooting things go back to 2.0 sound again. Sometimes it may not even happen after the first reboot, but later. Apparently the cause is that CTXIREG.exe process again. That process that supposedly tries to synchronize settings between the Windows and Creative control panels. Something doesn’t go right and the settings get reset by this. Disabling this process with MSCONFIG (or removing it from HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run) seems to fix the problem."

But i can't find the Speaker Fill option. If anybody could help me achive 5.1 sound it would be greatley appreciated

Thanks you

Hi Kal,

With your system you recieved a small control box with controls for Volume, Power, Bass, and Matrix. Press the Matrix switch.

Is your son the only user on the computer? when he was able to log in was he a regular user or administrator?

Do you guys have the dvd/cd's that came with the computer? what changed to prevent him from logging on? did he change something? download something? Is there a working anti virus on the machine?

Hi there,

I just purchased a Sony Vaio with Vista. It appears that when I try to copy and past a gif image, or drag and drop it, the paste or drop function is not working correctly. I have verified that cut and paste and drag and drop is activated on the machine.

I can past into a Word file, but not onto an ftp file/link.

Any ideas how to fix this?

I am running a Dell XPS 420 with Vista OS. I have an HP All-in-one printer 1315psc connected. When I first bought the system I had these same issues and HP sent me a patch disk. Neadless to say I can't find the patch that HP sent me to fix the communication issue. I recently downloaded windows updates and I believe that it over wrote my patch that was working. I have already checked for paper jams, cable connections....the printer will print a test page after being turned off and back on again. I do get one printer (error OX0000007a) during my many attempts to fix this printer. The other concern I have is HP downloads don't show the 1315 psc they show a 1310 psc in their download library. If you know of an answer it sure would make a great holiday gift in my house. Thanks in advance.

Changing the cables for my computer
Diagnostics on Vista
Searching for a new IP address

all to no avail. I have no clue now what the problem is. The only sign of life ive seen is the internet status going from "limited or no connectivity" to "unidentified network"

Running Windows Vista Ultimate on Gigabyte GA8IPE1000-G board with socket-478, Pentium 4, 2.8-GHz processor and 2 Gigs of DDR RAM.

I never had this problem running Windows 2000 and the same applications; but, it seems Vista is continuously making my hard disk tickity-tick and it almost never stops. I have Windows Automatic Update disabled.

What is Vista working on all the time?

I have a Windows 2000 system with the same hardware (except 3 GHz and only 1 Gig of RAM) sitting right next to this one that is idle most of the time and it never makes a peep unless I am actually using it; but, when I have been away come back, the Vista system is tickity-tickity-tickity when it hasn't been touched in hours.

I can confirm malware nor viruses are a factor.

A:Vista is not working properly?

Hi JC -

I would advise that you un-install IE 8 and return to IE 7 until system stability in tact. As you know - IE 8 is beta and unless you are in the position to re-format and re-install Vista - DO NOT USE (TEST) USE IT ! You may have to go that route to rid your system of IE 8. I would suggest this since your system is only a week old.

As for the freezing on the boot screen - check the Event Viewer (START | type eventvwr.msc) - start w/ Admin filtered log. Also check WERCON (START | wercon.exe) as there may be information on the apparent app crash /hang.

The printer problem may be the driver. What is the origin of the driver? How old is it? Check the Device Manager (START | devmgmt.msc) - enable hidden devices under 'View' and look for any red/yellow flags.

Regards. . .

Are you sure it is not working?
Could it just be that it is not in the system tray?

Click the Start Button and hover over All Programs
Find AVG in the list (might be under Grisoft).
Click to open the folder.
Hover over each entry until you find its entry in Program Files then click this.

Does AVG open then?

The slideshow option in Windows Explorer no longer works on my PC (Vista Home Premium 32 bit). When I click on the option the timer shows for a couple of seconds then disappears and nothing happens. I have looked through some other similar threads but they all appear to have slightly different symptoms from me - i.e they normally get the slideshow viewer to appear with a constant Wait instruction - I am not even getting that far. As a test, in case there were too many pics or the file sizes were too large, I have created a new folder with just a small number of low-res pics but it still won't work. Any suggestions please?

A:Vista Stopped Working

I'd suggest contacting the computer manufacturer for a set of replacement Vista disks - it'll be a lot easier than hunting down all the drivers that you'll need for XP.

That being said, there should be a key combination that you can press to get to the boot menu/BIOS on your laptop. Here's some of them:
Toshiba - F12
Gateway/eMachines - F10
Dell - F12
Sony - look for the prompt to boot from CD
HP/Compaq - Esc

There is no driver on the HP site - just information that a basic driver within Vista should work. Also there is a HP Print Diagnostic program.

When I run the diagnostic program - there are no errors showing and I can print a test page.

Otherwise, I cannot print all all... Any ideas?

All of a sudden, my computer no longer played my music or videos.

I can open up Itunes, Windows Media Player, Ruckus, etc. but when I try to play a video or song it will not play. No error messages come up when I play it on any of the programs; the files open but they wont start playing. And I dont think anything is wrong with my sound card because I can still hear .wav sounds from starting the computer and everything.

I checked my sound card by going to the Device Manager and it says the driver is up to date and everything.

What's going on?

Since you can hear the computer sounds, it's obviously not a sound card problem.

when I try to play a video or song it will not playClick to expand...

What formats of audio/video sounds are you playing? Since you can hear a .wav sound from the computer, try opening a wav file and see if it works

the files open but they wont start playingClick to expand...

What's your default program for starting audio/video?
If you double click an audio file, does the (seek) bar move and you don't hear sounds? or does it not move at all?

Okay my computer was running fine for about 8 months but now when I try to play a video it says that it is in use (The video plays but a popup comes up saying it is in use closes) It will also not play any dvds

Besides that everything else seems to be working fine. Usually I can figure these things out but this has got me stumped, I havn't added new apps except some betas, and demos of games

*Been reading a bit here and it seems to be related to Aim 6.5 anyone know how to fix it if you can't restore the settings?

I have already tried:
Flashed to updated bios
Disable SLI
New and Older Video Drivers
New Nforce Motherboard drivers
Reinstall DirectX

Any help would be appreciated

Asus Striker Extreme
E6300 OC'ed to 2.8

2x Hitachi Raid-0

So I have had my computer for like 3 weeks, and it was working fine. Then all of a sudden while installing world of warcraft it froze completely. And since then whenever I turn it on my monitor doesnt come on. I put my friends video card in which is like a 7800 or something. And it works fine. So I reformatted reinstalled my drivers and tried again still wouldnt work. So I reformatted it again. And now it wont even let me install my drivers cause I put my old video card in it which is an ATI video card. So when I try it tells me the drivers aren't compatible with my hardware. Does anyone have any idea what I should do to fix this? please please help

Oh i have windows vista, and the video card works in other computers. Just not my new one.

A:Vista says the sound is working BUT IT'S NOT :(

I GOT IT! Okay this is both stupid on my part, but not entirely. So, just sitting here I decided to start switching the jacks that I had my headphones plugged into (even though I knew I had them in the right jack). I mean the jack I had it in works in XP...Then I started switching the jacks to every one and I put it in another one and it decided to start working...Why? The jacks just changed functionality switching between vista and xp?

A:TV Tuner Not Working in Vista X64

Unless you find out what kind of card it is, we cannot help you ?

hmm..In Vista X86 when the Card works look in Device Manager,you will definately find out what kind of Card it is.
Then search on Google for the Driver , but if there is no Vista X64 driver for that card ,i guess you should stick to X86.

I am tryingto run te above on this packard bell laptop and I am getting the following message 'chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process would I like this this volume to be checked the next time I restart.' I click yes but when I restart it does not check. I have been doing this from the command prompt. But I have tried from computer right click drive click properties tools. Same thing happens, I can do a chk dsk using just chkdsk c: which tells me that something needs fixing.

I am unable to browse the internet. I can ping the dns servers by ip address and open websites by putting the ip address in the browser.

However I am unable to browse or ping any website by address. seems like dns in vista is not able to resolve the address.

I tried disabling the IPV6 stack also but no help. It started off by not able to get the DHCP address from the router. So I assigned manual IP address and preferred DNS server addresses. I did try ipconfig/flushdns but it doesnt help either.

I will appreciate any suggestion or clues?

Thanks

Dear Members,

I'm running Vista - Home Premium(SP2) on a thinkpad X200s.

I installed Microsoft Security essentials(MES) yesterday.Although everything was working well for sometime, the "Enter" key suddenly stopped working. I've tried un-installing MES, but still can't get the Enter key to work. Actually, i'm not even sure if its a H/w or S/w problem.

I'm hoping someone would have come across a similar issue in the past and can offer me some suggestions.

Thanks,

Kris
