Webcam setup on medion laptop

I have just got a new laptop: Medion Akoya P6612 Notebook and I can't get the webcam to work, i've looked through the instructions booklet and it has virtually nothing of use about the webcam setup.
The webcam is built into the laptop and I have windows vista if that makes a difference.

Have any ideas how to get it up and running?

Thanks

THE SOLUTION!!!!!!

1. Press start button.
2. In the "serch programs and files" tab typen in youcam. This will open up the webcam.
3. Once it is opened it will create a temporary icon on the task bar at the bottom of you desktop.
4. Click on this icon and you will have an option to pin it to the program to the taskbar, select this option and you will be able to easily start the launch of the program at any time.

Note: I really do not understand when Medion have not put direction for the webcam in the instruction manual!!!!!

Hope this helps,

Kathryn from London

    Just press the Fn key and F9 and the camera is activated. First time the drivers will install and Youcam opens. Toggle the camera on and off with the same key strokes

Everytime you boot up, you have to press/hold the Fn key on the bottom left of the keyboard & then the F8 key to enable the camera each time you turn it on.

Are the drivers installed? check out the laptops website and put in your model number. then, try yahoo or some other webcam-enabled messenger. you can find webcam programs online for free but ive never used anything else.

No sound from built in speakers


It could be that you need up to date sound drivers. You can download from
http://johnsondrivers.com/download-driver/MEDION/AKOYA-S4213-MD-98064
If that fails, take it back to your retailer or get in touch with Medion

Need driver for webcam (Medion akoya P6612 Laptop / Ubuntu OS)


Try Manycam and see if it works with Unbuntu. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download cnet" (without the quotes) and go to their site. Look down on the left and you will see a gray box that says find software. Type in: "Manycam" (without the quotes) and go download and install it. It's absolutely free, no trial period and it comes with application and I think driver. Give it a try. Be sure not to accept any buggy stuff that it will ask you during the install.

TV Tuner express card 54 DVB-T Medion


Hi,
you need to install/re-install the drivers for the expresscard, should be downloadable from medion. Also check in control-panel that the device is there. If you look in My Computer/control Panel/System/Device Manager and the device is listed, with a yellow exclamation mark. try removing/uninstalling. or physically remove from the computer, re-install and go through the new hardware wizard to set it up.
