Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When I plug in my USB cable from my Nikon Coolpix 4100, my computer shuts down.


Answers :

One of the reasons for your PC shutting down is that the cable connector is shorten inside, some aftermarket cables do that. The other problem can be in your camera: a virus. Best antivrus program Kaspersky Lab, scan your camera. But first try another cable, buy another cable on ebay for a dollar or two. Another problem can be in your camera's output terminal to check this try your AV cable and watch pics on TV, if you see the screen on the TV, your terminal is good, check the cable first
