Question about Gateway NE56R10u Laptop Intel Celeron B820, 320GB, 15.6 - Laptops

1 Answer

My webcam wont work, and i am trying to skype. it wont let me make a video call, i could make video calls yesterday but i can not today. i have a gateway NE56R10u. I was on a website that said i could download the webcam again so i tried that, and it didnt work. I also did a restart of the whole computer and it told me that it would make this computer like the day i got it. I have only had the computer for three days so you can understand why i am so frustrated. i have tried to download a new webcam from the gateweay website and it said there is no webcam detected.

Hello Jonathan,

Thanks for posting your problem in Fixya. It seems that you are having some trouble with your webcam. To check whether your webcam is working well or not, you can always download any webcam software from the vendor's website on a full or trial basis. For this, you can try this trusted webcam software as a fully-working trial for some specified days: Cyberlink Webcam
You can try this software and let us know, if this solution help you. If not, then we will try another solution.

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Mrityunjay

SOURCE: Gateway laptop won't play media or detect usb/cameras/dvds

Click on Start>Right-Click My Computer>Click on Properties>Click on Hardware Tab>Device Manager. You will see a list of all of your hardware devices. Look for DVD/CD controller and click on the "+" sign to show the make and model of your DVD adapter. Right click on it and click on Troubleshooting. While you are there click on "Update Drivers" also, see if there is a new driver. Try doing the same thing for Video and Sound. Let me know how it turns out.

SOURCE: Gateway 450rog Audio problem

I have just re-imaged a Gateway 450 ROG for a friend of mine on the website the audio driver is found (http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=3501353) under the heading Sound Downloads. This unzips a list of files C:\cabs\9520522
Readme.txt
stac97(security catalog)
stac97(control panel extension)
stac97 (setup information)
stac97(system file)
1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance.
3. In Performance and Maintenance, click the System icon.
4. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
5. In Device Manager, click the plus sign (+) next to Other Devices, and then double-click Multimedia Audio Controller.
6. In the Multimedia Audio Controller Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver.
7. In the Hardware Update Wizard dialog box, click Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), and then click Next.
8. In the next dialog box, click Search for the best driver in these locations, and then click Include this location in the search.
9. In the text box, type: C:\CABS\9520522. Click Next.
10. Click Finish.
Now once installed sound only comes from using the headphone jack, the external speakers get a little sound if the volume is turned up to maximum.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Gateway Chicony Webcam Graph Render Fail?

There is a book, a friend of mine bought a copy and basically is a Vista 64 problem. It will not allow you to use unsigned drivers without typing in a line of code. It has so much useful data and allows you to tweak Vista just the way you want it and unlock features Microsoft doesn;t even tell you about. The info on the book is below. I'll try to get my hands on a copy and post your solution. Do check the book out, it's probably available through your local library. Here's that info:

SOURCE: gateway 7320GZ works perfect for a few days then

I have pondered this situation for a bit and really am kinda stumped! Usually, things work or they don't. I would suggest that you check for a hardware diagnostic program in your computer, such as Dr Watson. I have included a link to the gateway support page for your notebook.

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/7305GZ/4430nv.shtml

If you know the manufacturer of your hard drive, you can go to the manufacturer site and look for download link and find the hard drive diagnostic program that most manufacturers offer to check their hard drive functioning.

You can also chat with a gateway technician and they may have some idea about this issue if they have had this complaint before.

I am sorry I could not be more specific.

Can you try to see if this TEST will find your webcam it works the video only if you have more that one VIDEO IN (for example a tuner card) you will need to select your webcam from a drop down menu.

If this will not find your webcam then its either a driver issue or it has failed on you. Sorry for the bad news if video test can find it !

Try using "SplitCam", can solve problems with a lot of webcams. It basically acts as an interface between your webcam and applications using it.

Connection not working


It sounds like your computer isn't connecting with the internet. It does not have anything to do with your camera
