Re: web cam problems

If I remeber rightly you just plug that model in and allow windows to boot up again and pick it up as a hardware you can add additional software to run it but I think windows media player is geared to run it. as for turning it on I think it is on when you hook it up jut close the software. Even on the net yahoo is an example that will accept your cam.

I have a built in web-cam in my advent milano elite net-book but i dont know whether it has it own programme or not, so i dont know how to use it please help.

the web cam should be working provided no one has uninstalled it's driver.

most people would use MSN or skype which are both free programs to use a web cam.

a good beginners guide to web cams can be found here-

hi when you boot your system go to the cmos settings a blue screen will show that is either you press f2 or f12 as your system requires, go to the on board settings i am sure the web cam on board is disables from this settings, enable it save the settings and exit. meanwhile on your windows xp make sure you have the webcam software installed this should work.

Hey! well ive got a advent notebook with a built in webcam and it says i dont have a webcam ? how doo i find it ?


The easiest way to find your web cam is by clicking on the start page on your desktop screen, You will see a small bar at the bottom of the start page that says "start search".

Type in the word "web cam" into the bar and you will see the web cam logo among the search result. Click on it and your web cam will open and you can start using the web cam

Cant get web cam to work help

Try do uninstall all Webcam specific applications(Like YouCam), and close all webcam enabled application(like Live Messenger).
sometimes they conflict with skype.
install latest drivers for your webcam if you don't have them already
Go in the skype settings and set up your webcam.
Now you should be good.

Web cam built into laptop

unstall all the driver and sofware of the webcam that you install in your computer and then look for at the buttom of your computer and you can see there a sticker with broadcom or intel and then look to google for some webcam driver that fits on your computer to run the webcam properly.

Hope it help
