My webcam doesnt work


Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer

If you still have no webcam installed

Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."

The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.

Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next."

Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer.

Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.

Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice.

An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this.
Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.

Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature.

Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder.

Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.

The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.

Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there.

Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

Change the volume licensing product key on a Windows XP SP1-Based Computer


Because of changes in Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows XP-based computers that use a leaked product key that is known to be available to the general public may not be able to install SP1 or automatically obtain updates from the Windows Update Web site. For an easy and quick method of obtaining your own CD Key please read Quickly Retrieve Windows CD Key



If you have only a few volume licensing product keys to change, you can use the Activation Wizard.
Warning!
This document contains instructions for editing the registry. If you make any error while editing the registry, you can potentially cause Windows to fail or be unable to boot, requiring you to reinstall Windows. Edit the registry at your own risk. Always back up the registry before making any changes. If you do not feel comfortable editing the registry, do not attempt these instructions. Instead, seek the help of a trained computer specialist.
Note: Microsoft recommends that you run System Restore to create a new restore point before you complete the following steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type Regedit, and then click OK.
  3. In the left pane, locate and then click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Current Version\WPAEvents

Windows 7 not genuine, copy of windows 7 ulitmate not genuine


The different ways to find out whether Windows 7 is genuine or not are as follows:
Activate Windows dialog box
Online verification
Offline verification

Activate Windows dialog box
The user can see whether Windows 7 is genuine or not by activating Windows dialog. To do this, one needs to go to 'Start' and open the 'Search' box. Type 'Inactive Windows' in the box and see whether the version is genuine or not. If the operating system is a genuine one, a message will be displayed stating "Activation was successful" with a logo of Microsoft on the right side of the screen.

Online verification
The user can also verify that Windows 7 is genuine or not by going to the official website of Microsoft and using the validation mechanism that determines the genuineness of an operating system. One may have noticed while downloading updates for Windows that the system asks for a verification to continue the download process. The user should always connect to the web using Internet Explorer and download updates only from the official website.

Offline verification
Another way of checking whether Windows 7 is genuine or not is by going to the 'Control Panel' of the system where one can find an option of system and security. The user needs to click on 'System' and go down to the option of 'Windows Activation'. If Windows 7 is genuine; it will show that Windows is activated along with its product details. This box will also display Microsoft logo to confirm its genuineness.

My computer is running really slow whenever a new


VinayT is right, not all updates are for you. Besides, he recommends CCleaner for you to clean Windows registry and improve the slow running speed, why this?
If you have never cleaned your registry before, then it will be shocking when you see how many errors exist in your Windows registry. Since you have installed and uninstalled programs, information is stored there. Those errors can cause Windows crash, freeze, errors and, slowdown.
CCleaner is good, but in my opinion, not good enough as a registry cleaner, because it covers less areas than paid registry optimizer software, here is a free registry cleaner review may help you know this.
Good luck!
