The icon can be restore by locating the in your software by typing "Bluetooth" in your search window and open settings, usually there is a box to check "yes" to start with windows.That said, you can look in MSCONFIG at the Startup tap, reveiw the startup programs. In the Bluetooth settings you will find a box to check to allow devices to find this device, it's a security option, (a make discoverable) option.

Hi:
You might try adjusting the screen resolution.
right click on the screen, go to properties, then settings.
Adjust the resolution slider bar to the right, or to a higher setting, and see if that helps?

SOURCE: skype can't detect my webcam - Laptop model sony

Hi,

If the imaging device is missing in the device manager, it is generally considered to be an hardware related issue. But, there are chances even in this situation the camera has worked after performing some troubleshooting steps:

Try opening the preinstalled ArcSoft WebCam Companion Software in the computer and check if there also you are getting the message, " Camera device not found".

If so then the issue may be resolved by reinstalling the Camera driver. In your case the computer uses inbox driver shipped with the OS. But, as it is Sony try reinstall the original ArcSoft WebCam Companion® Software from the esupport website.

If that also doesn't work, download and install the Camera driver:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNNS140ES&upd_id=4257&os_id=7

While installing the above driver, the computer may prompt an error this update is not for your computer model.

In that case, extract the setup file of the above driver using the Universal Extractor and then run teh setup, this usually works!!!!.

Download the Universal Extractor from the link below:

Thanks!!!!

I would suggest that you go under device manager (by right clicking on My Computer) and right-click on the device that has the !. Choose to uninstall that device.

Now, the reason most times for that is that you may have put the wrong drivers in initially, but then weren't completely removed, so the next time you used different drivers, they didn't completely work properly.

Restart the computer.

Go back to the Sony website, and download the drivers needed for your wireless card. And try installing it again.

I would suggest altogether to delete the WinXP partition and instead install Windows 7. I say that because windows 7 has many of the baseline drivers and for most computers of 1.5 years+ you don't have to install many drivers for them at all; they all come built in.

I hope some of that helped.

Please Rate. Thanks.

Lost start button and icons on my toshiba lap top


Do you mean the taskbar along the bottom of the screen?
If you move your cursor to the bottom of the screen the taskbar should appear. Right click anywhere on the taskbar and click properties. In the properties window, on the taskbar tab, uncheck 'auto hide taskbar'.

The taskbar is upside down and at the top of the screen


On Windows computers, you should have what is known as the taskbar. This is the gray strip that runs across the bottom of your computer and which displays icons for quickly accessing programs you frequently use. The taskbar also shows the "Start" menu, clock and icons for your Internet connections. Sometimes icons do not appear properly in the taskbar. This usually is because the computer is new and hasn't had icons placed in the taskbar manually, or because a default setting is off in the OS properties. Both are simple fixes.

1.Right-click the "Start" icon and select "Properties."

2.Select the "Taskbar" tab in the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" dialogue box.

3.Uncheck "Lock the taskbar" and "Auto-hide the taskbar." Check "Show Quick Launch." Since the Quick Launch box isn't available in some systems, you may need to right-click on the taskbar area, choose "Toolbars" and then select "Quick Launch."

4.Navigate to the programs you want to show on the taskbar through the "Start" menu or on your desktop. Right-click the program and drag it to the taskbar. Choose "Create shortcuts here" from the menu that appears. The icon for the program should appear in the taskbar.

Hi Bogdy_3003,

I see that you are having issue with your BT Nokia headset.

You mentioned that you are having issues connecting it to our PC.

You need to make sure that the Bluetooth settings on the computer is set to allow other devices to detect the computer to be able to get your Bluetooth Nokia headset working with your computer.

Look for the Bluetooth icon on the lower right side of the taskbar somewhere near the time then right click on it then select open bluetooth settings, it should open up a window for the Bluetooth on your computer then look for "Allo other devices to detect this computer" and put a check on it, click on Apply or OK, this should make your computer be detected by other BT devices such as your Nokia headset.

I hope this will help.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

The volume bar keeps appearing on the middle screen on my laptop hp dv7


My suggestion is to set the 'Start Menu' and 'Notification area' to default settings.

1) Right-click the Start icon and select Properties.
Click Taskbar tab > click 'Customize...' in Motification area' section.
Uncheck 'Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar' (it looks like you have this on)
Click 'Restore default icon behaviors'
test to see if taht fixes the issue.

If all is OK, Re-check the 'Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar' if you like and test again.

I hope this helps.

Sounds like the cells inside of the battery went bad. Try another known good working battery, if the red X goes away on the battery then you know the original battery is bad. If the red x stays on the new battery then that means either your power adapter is bad, which you can try replacing that as well because it might not be putting out the correct voltages to charge the battery. If that doesn't work then the motherboard is bad for sure.

I have a laptop model VGN FE880E & winXP.I dont have webcam driver.from where i can find the driver? Thank you Mehrdad


You can check the device manager and see if the camera has been detected. If it is listed, verify it does not have an error marked on its' icon. If the icon has an error, right click it and update the driver. Make sure you're connected to the Internet to search for the driver. Check the MFR of the webcam and go to their site if needed for the driver.

hi

  • Open your computer's Control Panel center to access your Bluetooth Device settings. Click on the Windows icon or the "Start" icon on your computer desktop's taskbar at the bottom of the screen. When the pop-up menu opens, click on the "Control Panel" link.
  • Step 2 Access your Bluetooth Device settings. When the Control Panel opens, click on the settings link that reads, "Bluetooth Devices." This link will display all of the possible actions and settings you can take regarding your laptop'smag-glass_10x10.gif Bluetooth technology.
  • Step 3 Configure your laptop's Bluetooth technology. Select the "Start the Bluetooth Device" action. The blue and white Bluetooth icon will appear in the Windows System tray within the computer desktop's taskbar.
  • Step 4 Network with another device in order to import and export files. Double-click on the blue and white Bluetooth icon on your computer desktop's taskbar. A Bluetooth dialog window will appear on your screen displaying your Bluetooth technology portal. Click on the "Add Devices" action. You will then be asked if your laptop would like to search for other compatible devices. Click "Next" to proceed. You will be prompted to choose a passkey for the pairing. Create a simple passkey and click on the "Pair" option. When the notification is received by the other device, enter the same passkey to pair the device to your laptop.
