Specs: Windows 8.1, 4GB DDR3 /500GB HDD
WEB-cam cycles on/off WHEN PLUGGED INTO USB PORT. I unchecked the box to allow the USB to be powered down for energy efficient mode.

If you keep hearing the "device connected" then "device disconnected" sound, it is most likely because there is not enough sustained power through the USB port to drive the webcam.

You can fix that by buying a mains-powered USB hub. Plug the hub in to a mains socket (with the supplied mains adapter) then plug the hub in to a USB port on your PC.

Now plug the webcam in to one of the hub's USB ports.

Mains-powered USB hubs at Amazon UK:

At Amazon USA:

Be sure to buy a mains-powered hub, not a plain hub which can't be plugged in to a mains socket.
