Why not in windows explorer. Right click on My Computer > Explore. It should list your cam below Hard disk Drive , CDROM drive, as Scanner and Camera as USB Camera / Composite Device. Dbl click to start the Cam

Cant find a driver for my advent 5712 laptop built in webcam


You may want to try a freeware tool to assist in finding a driver for it such as this one (top rated/downloaded one on CNet):


http://download.cnet.com/DriverMax/3000-18513_4-10572602.html



It's possible that a driver update may help but most built-in webcams are typically auto-detected and generic Microsoft drivers are installed for them in most current versions of Windows.


If that utility does not help, it is also possible that a program is loading at startup that is monopolizing the camera and thus causing it not to be recognized by a second application.

I have a built in youcam webcam in my advent 4211 netbook that has stopped working. I don't know what need to look at to get it working again. Which drivers? Whenever I click on it the programme says...


no need to pay extra, just reinstall the drivers from the cd you got with the notebook, if not with the help of the model number (Advent 4211c PC Notebook) you can download the drivers from sites, also try rollback driver or updating the can driver, if any questions please let me know.

Hey! well ive got a advent notebook with a built in webcam and it says i dont have a webcam ? how doo i find it ?


Hello

The easiest way to find your web cam is by clicking on the start page on your desktop screen, You will see a small bar at the bottom of the start page that says "start search".

Type in the word "web cam" into the bar and you will see the web cam logo among the search result. Click on it and your web cam will open and you can start using the web cam

GOOD LUCK

Well my laptop is advent and i have a built in webcam , its kind of broke but im looking to go on msn messanger to go on video calls with them and it wont let me because its broke so can you help me ?


If the webcam is broken, then if your laptop is under warranty period have it replaced.
If not then you will have to buy a usb webcam.
Broken Webcam for laptops are preety hard to fix at home. They might get fix at service stations.
Sorry mate not much of help here.

How do i turn on the built in webcam in the advent


Make sure you have correct driver installed properly. It dpends on the Operating System you are using as well. Like in Vista or Windows 7 you are likely to get some webcam drivers preloaded, whereas in XP you may or may not see the usb video device in the my computer panel. Also, if your webcam requires some special other applications to use it then check with your vendor to provide the same.
