Chances are you may need to get a driver for this device.. and depending how old the device is and how streamline it is.. you may or may net get the driver... google the name of the webcam and add the words "vista driver" to see if a driver is avaliable online or you may want to try the webcam manufacturer website to see if they have made the driver avaliable on their website. I found the driver for vista for and old webcam for a customer checking on forums related to that webcam.

good luck!

Cant find a driver for my advent 5712 laptop built in webcam


You may want to try a freeware tool to assist in finding a driver for it such as this one (top rated/downloaded one on CNet):


http://download.cnet.com/DriverMax/3000-18513_4-10572602.html



It's possible that a driver update may help but most built-in webcams are typically auto-detected and generic Microsoft drivers are installed for them in most current versions of Windows.


If that utility does not help, it is also possible that a program is loading at startup that is monopolizing the camera and thus causing it not to be recognized by a second application.

Cant find my drivers anywhere


Kind of an off-the-wall computer. Here are some links that may help, not sure where you were looking before. Who makes this thing?
http://ocram.org/wiki/Computer_Specifications/Advent/7110
Not the same model, but based off of the 7110 so some drivers may work:

This site is mostly just information, but you can individual manufacturer driver repositories with the model numbers provided:

Is itunes the only program that won't burn discs? Try WMP. Also you can actually authorize up to 5 computers for your iTunes account so as long as you do that you wont lose your stuff
