Webcams built-in to computers (I'm assuming it's a laptop) just require a driver to work (no CD necessary). You'll need to visit the website of your laptop's manufacturer and download the driver for it. After that you'll be able to use it with whatever software you need (including Windows built in software).
Hi! some laptop have a built in wireless network card.. some dont have.. check first if the laptop have a built-in wireless nic. if there is one.. some of this wireless nic use the built in software so that you can connect wirelessly. you can just turn off that software and use the windows xp wireless zero config.. to turn on the windows xp wireless zero config, sometimes there is an option if you turn of the software for the wireless nic but if there is no option, you can click on start and then select run and from the box, type services.msc and it will show you all the services for the computer and scroll down to the button and you will see wireless zero config and its off or disable just right click and it will give you the option and enable it.. this will connect you wirelessly without any problem..
Make sure the drivers are installed for your wireless adapter. XP
sometimes overlooks adapters during installation. Check the Device
Manager for any yellow exclamation points. If you find one, uninstall
it and click on the top item (your computer). Right-click the same
device and then click Scan for Hardware Changes. You should have your
drivers disk ready. The device will likely install, but be unable to
find drivers. Point XP to your drivers disk and it should install the
drivers for you.
BTW, if you don't have a drivers disk, check your system BIOS for the
chipset and google for "<chipset number/name> Windows XP
drivers". You should be able to find the drivers and download them from
the wired connection before trying the above instructions for
reinstalling the wifi drivers.
Sounds like you need some drivers installed, especially if you just installed XP clean.
Visit support.dell.com, click on Drivers and Downloads, click on the service tag option and enter your service tag located on the bottom.
This will take you to a list of drivers for your specific model. Make sure the OS chosen is Windows XP and in the list you should find some wireless drivers. There may be several different wireless drivers listed. And one of those will be specific to your needs.
You might need to identify which wireless card you have first. Which will requrie gaining access to it to get some part numbers or model numbers from it. There should be an access panel on the bottom that you can open to gain access to the mini-pci wireless card. That way you can see which one you have and download the correct software for it.
