Question about Gateway PC Desktops
Get ahold of Gateway **NOW**, in case your warranty is about to run out.
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.
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There should be some Webcam software, including a newer version of the drivers and a firmware update- - which will actually make the camera itself work differently.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.

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
usually one is able to download if available, by model
If the driver is not
available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are
This is the best way of ensuring up to
date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

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.
