My webcam don't work in safe mode


The RAM maybe faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

I am trying to fix my boss' Inspiron Mini 1012 - the Webcam is not opening. unable to find the driver. Where can i download the driver for his webcam?


@christinwayn

This computer uses the generic driver for Windows XP and Windows 7 and thus there's no need to install a driver. If you need to re-install the Webcam driver, try to do the following:

For Windows XP / 7
1. Press the Windows Key+R on the keyboard (the windows key looks like this ray_tosh_1.jpg ).
2. Type devmgmt.msc then press Enter.

3. Expand Imaging Devices, right click on your camera and choose Update Driver Software

4. Click Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software

If this doesn't work, I recommend doing a System Restore (if it was working a few days or weeks ago, step by step guide here) or a System Recovery (if you don't mind starting from scratch - you need to press F8 simultaneously during boot-up > choose Repair Your Computer and click on your account > Choose Dell Factory Image Restore).


Good luck

Can I add a webcam to my computer and do I need a mic?


Yes, you should be able to add a webcam. If your computer is running XP or later, you can find cameras almost anywhere. For Mac machines the selection is more limited, but Mac-compatible cameras are available. Cameras typically have a microphone built in, so you don't need a separate one. You don't actually need a microphone at all to use a camera, but if you want to use programs like Skype or do video chatting, you need one for the sound. The webcam will come with a disc containing the necessary drivers and installation program, so getting it working is usually not a difficult job.

Won't boot from dvd or hard drive, changed hard drives and still won't boot


Depends on what you mean by won't boot from DVD or Hard Drive,
it sounds like your boot order is what you're looking for help for.

To do this you need to get into your computers BIOS (or "Setup")
You can do this by rebooting the computer and the very very very first screen you see tells you how,
usually by pressing DEL or F2 or F10.

Without knowing the specific computer you're looking for help on I can only point you in the right direction however keep in mind the BIOS is for advanced users only and you can damage your computer by randomly changing settings.

What you're looking for though is usually called the Boot Order or Boot Sequence
You'll need to set whatever device you want to boot from higher on the list (usually with the up arrow or PgUp)
If you don't see your device on the boot list then it may not be detected due to failure.

DMy laptop was taken back to factory settings and I have lost the Icon for the webcam


if you don't have any of your startup discs that came with your laptop than i suggest going to the 'start' menu/ control panel/administrative tools/computer management (double click). you should see an icon on the far left explorer space that reads "device manager". from there try and find your webcam device. if located and you don't see an asterisk "!" on it, you may just need a program to launch it and you can usually find those online by google-ing 'Webcam Software Freeware". if ther is an asterisk, you will need to double click the device and a window will popup detailing the device's status. you should be connected to the internet at this time in order to update or find the driver. once that is complete, you may or may not need a program to launch the webcam.

BAM, there's a snake in mah boots.

Problem on 3 operating sys after reformatting


This is a common annoyance some people has encounter after reinstalling Windows.
The problem is that everytime you turn your computer ON, or restart it, you have a list of Windows you can boot from....even though you "know" there is only one.
First of all look into the BOOT.INI file, and make sure you kmow the version that is currently active.
You can safely delete the other two.
Next time you reboot, your computer should start as usual.

PS
To bring up the BOOT.INI
Go to Run, and type CMD, press Enter
at the end of the string type: cd"space".. (two dots)
Keep doing this until you get to C:/
now type BOOT.INI

A notepad document will open, and you'll see all the options you see at boot up.
Just delete the ones you know you don;t need, and save that notepad document.

Restart your pc, and that is all..!!

I think its time you reinstalled your Operating System or Windows. If you can find the Windows XP or Vista CD that came with your Computer then you but it in and reboot your computer. When you see a message say Press any key to boot boot from CD, press any key.

If you want to just fix your webcam, you need to find the CD that came with your webcam.
Then just reinstall all neccesary software. If you cannot find it. Reply with your webcams brand and model number.
