Webcam driver probably did not install properly.

Go to Device Manager. Unistall the Webcam. Reboot.

Vista will scan for new hardware, locate the Webcam and reinstall the driver.

Good luck.

I want to format my system please tell me how we do it


Formating the disk deletes EVERYTHING on that disk partition and sets it up for the installation of an operating system (XP, VISTA, LINUX etc).
If that is what you want, you will need your operating system disk. It will have the option to delete the current partition and install the "new" system. When you delete the partition, again, all the information on that partition is deleted.
Follow the instructions on your recovery disk and it will lead you thru these steps.
If you need more, details, let me know where your having a problem. There are more detail instructions at: http://www.ehow.com/how_6026_format-hard-drive.html

check your boot setting first in the cmos/bios of your laptop, look for the boot order from there choose your cd/dvd rom as your first boot device then the hard drive 2nd, you will need to this because in order for you to install xp, when you are done save the setting that you have made then restart the machine, insert your windows installation disc, it will prompt you to press any key to boot from the cd rom, from it will check you system config, then just follow the instruction given to you by the installation process read it carefully then it will be easy as 123, windows will guide you thru the installation process and will ask you for the lincense key, just make sure that you use a genuine copy of window if not you wont be able to register your o.s and you wont get the updates from windows

No internal hard disk found


Hi there.
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.

Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Windows os


Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.
