Did u ever find out the problem with your webcam?
I was on the phone for 2 1/2 hours with a supposed IT professional from HP-from India-where else? And she was useless.
My magic-i still does not open up due to a "driver not found"
And HP's solution patch doesn't even open up.
Any help will b appreciated.
PS-i downloaded the software disc 15 times-no help.

I think your keyboard freezing is another problem entirely.
I also have the same thing-i thought it was mu mouse but it isn't.
I also have the same problem with the Magic-i so let me know if u have found any solutions.

I just solved this problem using the following instructions I found on the ArcSoft User Forum.
THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM! Thanks to marvinmartian.

Don't buy this rubbish. Buy anything else.
When you try to report the problem to Arcsoft, the message form demands that you enter the product reference - which you cannot get because you cannot find magic-i driver, and the reference number you can get from the sytem isnt recognised by arcsoft, so you are not allowed to complete the form and send it off ! Its a great way of ensuring that arcsoft get no complaints. Yes, I am frustrated.

Awesome fix, thank you so much! i had tried 5 times before i read your post but never did the "Compatibility" thingey. I knew it HAD to somehow work because my Toshiba Laptop is also running Windows 7 BUT 32 bit and it loaded drivers no problem ( the HP i was having the trouble with has Windows 7 and is 64 bit - i talk about all these specs AS IF i know what they mean Anyhow, thank you so much for the posted intructions you put. I could never have figured it out without your step-by-step- ! It worked like a charm, EXCEPT: choosing Vista Service Pack 2 didn't work for me, but i persevered and tried Just Vista, still a "no go" but lo & behold when i tried Vista Service Pack 1 it worked!! Thanks again! And thanks to marvinmartian!
