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.

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
