Question about Acer TravelMate TM2480-2705 Notebook

Open Question

WEBCAM NOT WORKING?

My Acer TravelMate 2482 wxmi is a couple of years old. We were using an ancient telephone line internet and e-mail connection, but have now (yesterday) upgraded to ADSL. A couple of advertised features are still not working properly and we will be arranging for a technician from the service provider to visit us on Monday to sort these things out. However, he will not be interested in the built-in web camera, which does not seem to be working. It has not worked since almost the very beginning. What steps do we need to take to make it work? (My wife and I are electronically retarded, so please don't explain in technolese). Many thanks. Willie.

    Get anywhere with this yet?

    Does it show up as an USB Video Device under Explorer? It should be just above My Network Places.

    Which operating system do you have? Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, etc.?

I have a laptop manufactured by acer , model travelmate 3275 WXMi , suddenly stoped work , I took it to one of the computer maintenance shop , they told me there is a short circuit in the motherboard and...


wow.. that's as serious as it gets with laptops... depending how old your laptop is and if it's a few years old.. you may have to think about getting a new one as it may be as expensive (or more) to get the motherboard replacement plus the labor instead of just buying a new laptop.

at least you may still be able to get your data out of your the hard drive: get an hdd enclosure and use that hd as back up for your new laptop.

unfortanetely laptops are not as easy to work with as desktops when it comes to maintenance because most of their designs and physical technology included in them is propriatary so proper servicing it's tricky, more time consuming and therefore more expensive.

Sounds like it. . . (power pin problem). I use a Cable Retention Device like the one in this video to keep from damaging the fragile connector. . . .
