ADVENT Discovery MT1804 Desktop web cam not working


Go to Control Panel
go to device manager
Have a look down the list to see if there is an entry which has a yellow triangle containing an exclation mark next to it., see if the entry matches your webcam.
Providing that you have discovered your webcam in this list, right click on the entry and click on update drivers. Follow the prompts and see if your pc locates new drivers for the device.
If this fails, search Advent's website for drivers for your pc

Hi! try to check if the driver for the webcam is installed on the machine, go to start->right click on my computer->properties->hardware->device manager. Check if the driver is there, uninstall and reinstall the driver by following the steps below:

Drivers

2.Double-click the icon for XP (C:) drive.
3.You may see a message saying "These files are hidden". Click the Show the contents of this folder option.
4.Double-click the Applications folder.
5.Double-click the Drivers folder.
6.Inside this folder you will see folders for each device you can re-install, for example, Audio.
7.Double-click the folder and look for an icon called Setup.exe or Install.exe.
8.Double-click the icon and follow any on-screen instructions to re-install the driver.
9.After installing drivers it is recommended that you restart your computer.

***you have to run a program or a software (yahoo messenger, etc) for you to test if the webcam if it is working or not***

hope this helps...

Lcd connection


Hi,

It would be uncommon for a laptop not to have a function key, Fn. This would be normally located somewhere bottom left of the keyboard often after the CTRL key and/or before the Windows key. Further, it is often required to press the Fn key + F? key where the F? would be one of the F keys with the small monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

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.
