My webcam doesnt work


Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer

If you still have no webcam installed

Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."

The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.

Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next."

Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer.

Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.

Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice.

An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this.
Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.

Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature.

Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder.

Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.

The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.

Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there.

Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

I was trying to create the Recovery Management disk but everytime I try to burn the CD it keeps ejecting. I would really like it if you could provide some help. I recently bought this E-Machine computer...


Welcome to Fixya

Please see procedure below on how to create recovery disk. Let me know if smae thing will happen.

  • 1

    Click the "Start" icon on the Windows Vista home screen. Select "eMachines," then click "eMachines Recovery Management." The eMachines Recovery Management program opens.

  • 2

    Click "Create Factory Default Disc." The program will tell you how many discs you will need. Make sure the correct optical drive is selected, then insert a blank disc into that drive. Click "Start" to begin the burning process.

  • 3

    Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.

  • 4

    Press "F12" repeatedly when the eMachines logo is displayed on the screen to be redirected to the Boot menu. Select the optical drive, then press "Enter."

  • 5

    Insert Recovery CD 1 when you are prompted to insert the recovery disc. The eMachines Recovery Management program will open.

  • 6

    Click the "Restore" tab in the list on the left side of the eMachines Recovery Management program window, then select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults." The computer automatically restarts and the recovery process begins. Insert any additional recovery discs as requested. The computer will reboot automatically when the laptop has been recovered to its original factory default settings, and you will be taken to the Windows Setup screen.

    My dell 600 goes into the blue screen and Wont Load (Error mesg)


    This is quite common, and easy to fix, I have included a link below to help you.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811014

    Insert the Windows Recovery CD into the disk drive and reboot the computer.
    Check the computer's boot order. This must be done from the BIOS set-up before boot begins. Pressing "F2" will start the BIOS set up on most PCs. (This is not always the case, and the boot screens will tell you which button will take you to the system set-up.) Make sure that your CD drive comes before your hard disk in the boot order.
    Select the drive with the Windows installation you wish to repair when you see the menu to select a hard disk drives. If you have mistakenly swapped a Windows Installation CD for the recovery disk, enter the automated system recovery and place the recovery disk in the drive when prompted to do so.
    Select the drive that needs to be prepared. You will be asked for the administrator password. Enter the administrator account password if one has been set up.
    Type "expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32." Windows is not case sensitive, but you must spell the commands correctly. This copies the ntoskernel.exe file to the approrpriate directory.
    Press "Y" when the program asks if you want to proceed.
    Enter the exit command and the reboot the system. Take the CD out of the drive and Windows should load correctly.

    Toshiba 8000 system disc message


    Hi Larry,

    This happens when either the system disk is corrupt or faulty, or, when another disk with higher priority but no operating system is in the computer.

    Typically removable disks like CD's, DVD's, Floppy disks, Memory Cards and USB flash drives can all take higher priority than your windows drive as any can be used to load up diagnostic software when it is damaged.

    So, Remove all disks, USB devices(including printers), CD's or DVD's et al and try again. If this still happens with everything removed/disconnected, then your problem is with the Windows install or the harddrives physical components. If it works try reattaching/inserting the disks and devices one at a time then restarting and you will figure out which one is causing the problem.

    If it didn't work you will need to get to a hardware shop and have them test the hard drive to see if it's faulty. If not contact Toshiba and order a set of recovery disks, when they arive insert disk one then turn the machine on and an onscreen wizard will walk you through re-installing. If they determine there's a hardware issue with the drive, either buy/warranty a new drive then order the disks from Toshiba and follow the above instructions.

    Hope this helps FixYa,

    I have a laptop Toshiba satellite A30. I have a black screen and some text on it like: PXE-E61 MediaTest Failure PXE-M0F Exiting PXE ROM and it goes continiously, I can't go any further. When I was loaded...


    media test failure means that your boot drive has failed ie your hard drive has failed to boot....could be one of a number of reasons
    1 hard drive connection could be loose - try taking out the hard drive and reinstalling it
    2 the boot sector on the hard drive is corrupt or damaged - try booting off a windows disk and running chkdsk or fixboot command
    3 partition table is corrupt - try booting off windows cd and running chkdsk /p from command prompt
    4 Hard drive has failed - if machine is still under warranty return for repair if not install new hard drive and reload op system from recovery disks

    Are these drives you have fitted yourself, or been added as after market drives?
    If so you have run in to the odd way Toshiba set their optical drives as master or slave, although this is generally and IDE #1 error.
    To fix this you need to solder pin 45 and 47 together.
    47 is the key pin here, as it controls whether the drive is in SLAVE or MASTER mode.
    grounded, the drive is in MASTER, open, it is in SLAVE.
    pin 45 is simply a grounding pin.
    So you'll need to open up the drive, turn it over, and put a small blob of solder on the two pins next to each other - 45 and 47.

    If they are original drives or used to work then uninstall the drives and the IDE controllers in Device manager and reboot, letting windows redetect and install the hardware. Also try reinstalling the motherboard drivers available from Toshiba's support site.

    1. Use the Windows XP CD-ROM to start your computer.
    2. When you receive the message to press R to repair Windows by using the Recovery Console, press the R key.
    3. Select the Windows installation that you want, and then type the administrator password when prompted.
    4. Type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER.
    5. When the Windows installation is located, the following instructions are displayed: Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
      [Type Y in response to this message.]

      Enter Load Identifier:
      [This is the name of the operating system. Type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition.]

      Enter OS Load options:
      [Leave this field blank, and then press ENTER]. After you perform the preceding steps, restart the computer, and then select the first item on the boot menu. This should allow Windows XP to start normally.

      After Windows XP has successfully loaded, the Boot.ini can be modified to remove the incorrect entry.

    6. If you receive a prompt to overwrite the file, press Y.
    7. Type exit, and press ENTER at the command prompt.
    uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 4 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Start the computer by using the Recovery Console, and then run theCHKDSK /rcommand.

    Note You do not have to include the /p switch in the Chkdsk command-line because the /r switch causes the Chkdsk utility to locate bad sectors and recover readable information. This command implies the /p switch..
