Why does youcam lag?

My youcam seems to be lagging, I can't seem to figure out why. Anyone know anything about that?

Product name: HP dv7 7027-cl

Windows 7

Brand new lags everytime I use it, I even tried restarting my laptop and turning it off.

Re: Why does youcam lag?

Do you have a lot of programs running in the background? Maybe an anti-virus program running a scan? How much memory do you have in your system?

It's literally brand new so no memory was really used at all, and no other programs are running while I use it.

If it is brand new out of the box, you may be getting downloads from microsoft for you operating system.  Do you see a yellow-gold shield telling you that updates are ready in the lower right corner?

In version 3.5: Click the "enhance the current video image". Press the "advanced" button at the bottom of the "video enhancement" dialogue box. Click on the Camera Control tab. Uncheck the Low Light Compensation check box. Click ok. Should fix it. Very smooth after turning that option off. The autolighting check box also seems to lighten a bit without lag if you need it. Another common issue - if you have exposure issues where the screen goes dark and you can't adjust it with the exposure slider, go back to the advanced screen and the Camera Control tab and check auto exposure. If you change it manually, you may have to go back and recheck autoexposure again.
