The camera on my laptop, model MT616 does not work anymore. If I click on the camera button it does nothing. It was purchased 12/11/2007 so I hope it's under warranty. Connie Wheelock 3395 mohawk st sauquoit ny 13456 Thanks!

Connie,

Get ahold of Gateway **NOW**, in case your warranty is about to run out.
http://www.gateway.com/about/legal/warranty.php?cm_ven=eSupport&cm_cat=CservFAQ&cm_pla=&cm_ite=WarrantyInfo

They may be able to help you. Live support online has been rather helpful for me, and the wait times haven't been too bad. If that doesn't get you anywhere ...

I can't find your laptop in Gateway's database. Try poking around here, either with your serial number (this page) or by clicking the "Browse all downloads" tab and typing in your model number, which may be missing a number.
http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/dlcenter.asp
If you're browsing, hit "Display results" at the bottom before you enter anything in for question 4.

There should be some Webcam software, including a newer version of the drivers and a firmware update- - which will actually make the camera itself work differently.

Also look to see if there's any software from Gateway itself. Sometimes manufacturers build their own software to set up one button to enter a power management screen, one button to enter a setup screen, one button to open e-mail, etc. There may be similar controlling software for your camera.

How can i use my web cam


Your Dell Latitude E6400 laptop comes with a built-in webcam at the top of the LCD screen. This camera can take still pictures and record video for use with video messaging. You can access the camera via a software program already installed on the computer. This program can be accessed right from the desktop screen.

1.Turn on your Dell Latitude and click on the "Start" tab on the main desktop screen. A list of options will appear in a drop-down window.
2.Click "Dell Webcam" from the list of options in the window.
3.Click on "Dell Webcam Center" and the program will open. A capture window will appear on screen. Beneath the capture window will be a control panel.
4.Click on the camera icon to take a still photo.
5.Click on the "Record" button to record video with the webcam.
I hope you find it helpful. Best regards.

My aoc v19+ web cam driver is not working for window7 of 64bits please tell me what do i do


Always get your drivers and specific software from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop. They are usually free of charge.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

How do you convert a toshiba laptop back to its factory settings. I know the windows program is on the hard drive but I don't know how to access it.


Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.


To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.


ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.



1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.


Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.


2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.


3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.


4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.


5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.


6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.


7) Click Next to Start recovery.


I hope you find this step by step solution helpful for you. If so, rate it up.

I cannot get my computer and Infocus LP10 to communicate. This is a new problem. In the past, I hooked everything up and when I powered up the camera and then powered up my laptop, all was well with my...


if you are trying to hook the laptop to the proyector, did you try right clicking on the desktop to view the properties of the screen?
you have to right click at the desktop, then go to properties, then go to the tab of configuration then click on the second screen that will apear, and when it greys out, you there is an option you have to click below that says "extend windows desktop to this monitor", of course, the proyector has to be already conected, when you already clicked that, touch the sync button of the proyuector and it should be working.. otherwise, at the windows of configuraton you have to click on advanced (wich is a button almost at the bottom of the window) and then a window will emerge and (on my version) there is a tab that its called like my video card of the laptop (in your laptop it should be called like your video card), and there must be an option (after you plugged the proyector) of sending the signal like something specific, like a signal for tv, or proyector,or monitor.. .i think it varies depending on the model of the video card.
well.. i think thats all about it.. wish you good luck in your lecture..
also.. check the cables!.. if they are old they could be broken at the begening of the conection... (did i explain that right?)

Camera and scanner no longer recognised


On Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, you can get to Device Manager by right clicking on your desktop's "My Computer" (or "Computer" for Vista) and select "Properties". Then click the "Hardware" tab. Then click the "Device Manager" button (Vista may be slightly different).

As for why they are recognized on your friend's laptop but not yours, it's going to depend on what operating systems both are running and what the brand/models of the camera and scanner are. If there are drivers required to run the camera and scanner, try uninstalling and reinstalling them.
