Wespro n720 hanging at loading os image how to solve this problem


You don't state the OS but usually it is a damaged system file.
On XP you can try this: Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It`ll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". On Win 7 or Vista: Ctrl+Alt+Delete won`t work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset Deluxe

Web cam not working on advent


Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp

Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7

http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours


http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html

Windows XP/Vista/7/8


It might take some time being a freeware driver solution

note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

this is a free driver solutions

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you

want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated

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).

Would like the webcam drivers for advent celeron c900 can you suggest the correct link please thank you



Hi

You don't say which Operating System you are using or what the actual reason is for you needing to install the Webcam Driver. Have you upgraded your Operating System? Or did the Webcam just stop working and you want fix it with Driver re-installation within the same Operating System?

Although, on the surface, drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually mainly about software. The Driver does not physically control the Webcam. The Operating System does. What the driver does is (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), introduce the Webcam to the Operating System and help them to communicate with one another, with Driver taking instructions from both and passing it back and forth between them.

So when one mentions Drivers, one must also mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be possible, the 2 must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of 'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Webcam will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying.

There is no such thing as a Webcam Driver. There can only be an XP Webcam Driver, a Vista Webcam Driver or a Windows 7 Webcam Driver.

Unfortunately Advent is a bad choice of computer brand for you, because it is an Own Brand of the Dixons Stores Group (owner of PC World & Curry's Digital) and because, they want all Advent computers repairs to be done, at a price, by PC World's Tech Guys, they offer NO Driver Support at all on their the Advent Website. If you type either "download" or "driver" into the Search Box on the Advent site -"0 Items Found". See here:

http://www.adventcomputers.co.uk/product-comparison

All the website offers is hardware - Laptops, Desktops and Printers for Sale. No online support at all.

So you are stuck, I'm afraid. Either go to PC World or go back to your previous Operating System or use System Restore to put your computer back to when the Webcam was working (only possible, if you have not changed Operating Systems).

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > Restore My Computer to an earlier time > select a HIGHLIGHTED date in the calendar and an event in the schedule that preceded the Webcam fault (When the webcam was working) > Restore > Restart computer? Test Webcam

There are unofficial websites that claim to have Webcam Drivers for your computer, but you would have to gamble and take your luck between these sites, because DSG tightly control all Advent Drivers and officially release them to no 3rd Party Company, so I have my doubts if anyone else has them - but it is possible. See here, for example:

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/advent+c900+camera+drivers/

I hope this helps.

Advent 4211 always require you to enable it everytime you turn the laptop on. it is Fn key + F10 I think. Look for the Function key at the top of your keyboard which has a picture of a webcam. Hold down the FN key at the bottom left, and then click on the correct 'F' key. You should see a little picture come up on the screen to say you have enabled your webcam. That should work.

How do i turn on the built in webcam in the advent


Make sure you have correct driver installed properly. It dpends on the Operating System you are using as well. Like in Vista or Windows 7 you are likely to get some webcam drivers preloaded, whereas in XP you may or may not see the usb video device in the my computer panel. Also, if your webcam requires some special other applications to use it then check with your vendor to provide the same.
