Advent 8315 disc drive not working


Here's a description of your drive, though the device manager should be able to give you the exact model #. And here's a link to a support site that has drivers, manuals, etc for your laptop. Here are a few steps to work through to confirm that the drive itself is bad. I think since it never worked you should check the jumper settings and cables at least, to make sure things are connected properly. I'd stay away from registry cleaners, as they can cause more harm than good. Also see number 13 in this link to check that you've enabled the dvd gallery in vista.
On the other hand, the drive could be faulty. A local computer tech will be able to test it for you.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Advent 4211-b problem with built in webcam not working


Go to the device manager. You will see a section called Imaging devices. Click on the plus sign. if any device is listed uninstall it and then restart your computer. The drivers will get installed automatically or you need to use the driver CD to reinstall the same. Once installed use any software like Cyberlink Youcam or any other software provided to you by your vendor. make sure the input device selected is the required webcam.

The computer is sending packets but return packets will only comes through filters like firewalls or security measures definetly your problem belong to the security settings with your pc which is not accepting any outside devices to connect - check your firewall setting and under network properties check internet protocol settings also check your antivirus blocking the connection try to ping the wireless adpater ip of your pc by itself are your getting the reply???

Just bought an Advent 5401 laptop. cant get the webcam to work.there is no program to use it or any kind of help in the box it came in. it runs on vista.


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!

Installation for an Advent ADE-300NS claims to be easy with no need for driver but upon installation a driver is needed. how do i install the webcam


If you still have the receipt, I suggest you take the product back to where you bought it. After quite a bit of research I can not find any REAL information on the manufacturer of any Advent product. Everything I'm looking at indicates multiple manufacturers for all Advent rebranded products. My best guess for your future happiness with a webcam is to get one that is manufactured by a reputable and known company. These rebranded products are nothing but headaches for the customers and for us researchers. Sorry but that is all I can do.
