Webcam problem (OVCODEK2,SYS)

  JonnyUK 15:18 17 Jul 2008

Ok, so I've got a bit of a problem with turning my webcam on in the chatrooms on

Every now and then, turning it on will either shut down my computer instantly, giving me a blue screen with the following message:

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE2875000, 0x00000000, 0xF2F479BC, 0x00000001)
OVCODEK2.SYS Address 0xF2F479BC base at F2F38000 datestamp 3B7D8702

Or... after a while, I'll get the same message. That, or I can stay in the chatroom fine. So it's really random if this happens or not but I'd really like it if it didn't happen at all!

I managed to find a bit of help here: click here

And assuming that the original poster in that topic fixed his problem via installing old drivers... Does anyone know how I'd install the old drivers myself? Are they on the installation disc with the webcam? Or do I have to download them from a website somewhere?

Any help would be greatly apreciated! :)
