Advent 5431 screen all mashed up ie cant workout what anythink says on the screen at all,when i plug in external monitor screen is ok..changed screen with a working laptop screen and changed inverter still...

Most probably you have a defective LCD screen cable. This is the only possibility left since you have changed the LCD screen & inverter, & an external monitor works fine. Check your LCD screen cable & replace it if necessary.

My advent 5431 laptop windows vista setup hangs

often in vista installation, you have an option to install a driver, and then you put your driver disk in the drive and the Sata driver is installed. Then vista will install as it should . Give it a try..

New samsung r519. integrated webcam works fine

est your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to WLM (MSN)

Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the MSN software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Set your speakers
Click 'Test' - if OK, move on.
Set your mic as default
Use the slider to set volume and test.
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Your webcam should be broadcasting - if not - make sure the webcam is set as default - restart MSN
Use 'Webcam Settings'to fine tune the picture.
Click 'Finish'

The webcam which is integral to the computer doesnt seem to be working on msn its as if there is no webcam help please?

This is just a proposal.
The first ting i wold do is to make shore the best driver for the camera i installed
when this is in order i wold try to install msn again by doing it like this:
First download and make shore you have the newest version of MSN.
Uninstall ( if possible) MSN.
Install the new MSN when the integrated camera is working properly.
MSN should find the camera by it self i believe.
In Control panel choose System; Device Manager.
Right click mouse over Camera.
Chose properties and then Update driver.
Use this link to download DriverMax!
Install and use it and you want have driver problems!
