    Thanks, sybabe. This pc is a laptop using vista, having this web cam built in. Went to My Comoputer, as suggested, but could find no help here, either. As you, cannot find manual. Please, what should be done?

    Thank you, again!

    Thanks for your help, sybabe. Went to the store where this Gateway was purchased, asked for a manual. The man here said manuals are now built-in; not on paper, but on line. Whew, what a hassle! This will take more time, but this is what it will take. Thank you, again, no matter.

I am shooting in the dark here, but seeing how I cannot find the manual to this notebook, and guessing you are using Windows 2000/XP, Go to the My Computer icon, double-click on your harddrive, search for program files. In there should be the name of your webcam software (indicated by some sort of webcamish name). I hope this helps.

    Ok, let's try going to the Start menu, Programs, and Accessories. Or Programs, and check the list of programs you have available and look for the webcam software.

    Hi, I'm sorry if I said anything inappropriate. I'm not sure what it is, but could you do this for me: Go to the STart menu, Programs, and give me a list of all the programs available.

    Do the in the Accessories folder.

    One thing I could think of doing if you are in a hurry, is to go to the Gateway website, and look for your webcam driver there. Look under your specific notebook, and it should give you options for support and download. I hope this helped a little more!

Hi jdr_dlr519!
Pardon me.... but did your friend connected the monitor cable correctly on the system unit? Cleaning the fan will not break your computer... however, if he forgot to disconnect the power cables before opening the unit, it may do a damage.

A month out of warranty, our Gateway FX530S broke down (Serial Number 0040289739). We called in the Geek Squad and they replaced the power source. However, less than a month later, the computer...

gateways are not that good of a pc, they are only built to last about a year (they won't tell you this of course) the best thing you can do at this time is buy extended warranty on the laptop, wait about 2 weeks and send it in for repair, it will work out much cheaper than having to replace the motherboard

Old gateway desktop tries to start up but just shows white screen or menu

the last time my friend's old cp would not start and showed a white screen, it was nothing else than changing the power box that had gone dead from overheating - the fan was stuck hard since weeks!
