It keeps saying web cam not connected. I shouldn't have to reinstall the cd each time I want to use the web cam, should I ? I need to know how to get it on the computer for good and be able to have other people view it too, without any problems. Please help. I did what it said to do and nothing.

Not all Web Cams turn on automatically, Yours might be one ;-)
Start, Settings, Control Panel. Look for your Webcam, Double click it, wander thru menues/tabs to find ON or Enable button. Close. Use

How do I get the sound on advent roma 3001?Also how do I connect to other people with webcam


It is a completely normal LAPTOP If you can not hear anything it is because one of these things : 1 : the volume of the speakers is down, you have then turn up the volume at the corner together with the watch 2: the driver to the sound to the computer is not intalled, then you have maybe a driver CD that followed with the computer
FOR THE WEB CAM : Many Web-cams today are plug and play, that means you just insert it to the computer and the computer install the driver :-) IF NOT : then you have a CD that followed with the purchase of the web cam, just insert the CD to the computer and follow the instructions. Have a nice time over there

When I try to start my web cam I keep getting this message about web cam driver did not work restart camera or computer. I have restart my computer too many time and still does not work.


It sounds like you need to update your driver for the web cam.
Step 1: Go to device manager
Step2: Find the web cam in the device list
Step3: Open Properties
Step4: Have the device manager search for driver.

Other option:
with the web cam unplugged from computer, in device manager uninstall the web cam, restart computer, then plug web cam into computer and let OS find and install drivers.

Make sure that the web cam is compatible with the OS of your computer and the driver is properly installed in your computer.

Try to uninstall and re-install the web cam driver.

Thank you!

If you have purchased a web cam unit, look for any CD that matches to your camera. However, most camera, CDs goes with it. Install CD and click folder which you wanted to install it in your computer.

Hi Maungmaungti,

Thanks for your posting in FIXYA.

It may be some Hardware conflicts arises due to Web Cam.

Please unplug Cam from PC and reboot it.

Also check your Device Manager and use the Mobo CD from installing Sound Driver.

Would like to install webcam


hi

1.) insert the cd that came with the web cam
the auto run will start,
2.) connect the web cam and follow the on screen instructions this will do the work for you,

incase you dont have the cd, sometimes windows has the drivers that it need so you can just connect it, If windows does not have the drivers or you lost the cd

1.) get a program like driver magician
www.drivermagician.com or www.phazeddl.com ( search it there)
2.) connect the web cam
3.) install and run the program, this will detect, download and install the drivers for you.

good luck and let me know if you need further help
