Sounds like maybe the drivers for the camera are missing and the application to use with the camera are missing. Go to this page courtesy of the Dell support website:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Go under input device drivers and download and install creative webcam drivers.

Then go under Applications and download and install Creative Labs Dell Webcam Manager.

This should take care of the problem. Let me know if you need any other help if some reason its giving you problems.

My webcam is built in on my laptop and people on msn can't see me but i can see myself and them. They cannot hear me either.


There is no longer a program called MSN - for nearly 6 years! The only MSN software now are Trojans, however there is still a MSN Web Portal to access Hotmail accounts.
Download Windows Live Messenger and use the built in configuration utility when you set it up.

What is trojan horse virus


A Trojan Horse is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan Horse it was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear to be useful software but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer. Those on the receiving end of a Trojan Horse are usually tricked into opening them because they appear to be receiving legitimate software or files from a legitimate source. When a Trojan is activated on your computer, the results can vary. Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious (like changing your desktop, adding silly active desktop icons) or they can cause serious damage by deleting files and destroying information on your system. Trojans are also known to create a backdoor on your computer that gives malicious users access to your system, possibly allowing confidential or personal information to be compromised. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by infecting other files nor do they self-replicate.

Please rate the solution if helpful. Thank you

Hi I have the Advent 6553 and i was having a problem, I took it to a repair shop and they did a reinstall, my laptop came with a built it webcam, since iv got it back i cannot find the webcam icon anywhere...


It sounds like the webcam recording software was erased. Do you have any other camera-using apps like Skype that you can use to confirm the webcam works?

If you need a program to take pictures with your webcam, this website should do the trick.

If your webcam doesn't work at all, you'll probably need to install a new driver for it. If you can't find one, I could probably help you find one.

My system is affected trojan virus like Trojan-PSW.BAT.Cunter, BAT.Looper, Trojan-Spy.HTML.citfraud..how can i remove and safe my computer


Hi,
If you have these types of infections on your computer, you have to do these steps:
You need to access another computer to download Trojan Remover;
you need to go to this link, after downloading Trojan Remover, you may also download Malwarebytes by going here, then go to the next step.

First - try if you can open MSCONFIG
click on start > then go to run > then type msconfig on the box and enter. If you were able to access it go to start-up tab on top > then click on Disable button below the box list. > If your msconfig is blocked go to next step.

Second - Restart your computer to Safemode with networking.
restart the computer and after the screen is on again, immediately press F8 multiple time to access advance boot option. > then you can now select safemode with networking. after logging on to safemode > Install the Trojan remover you downloaded from another computer > then do an upgrade and then ran a fullsystem scan. > after the installing and running Trojan Remover, > install malwarebytes and run an update before running a full system scan.
This should be able to help you get rid of the infection out of your computer.

Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciatd for the free support.
