If you have vista installed when you click "start"button there is a search engine located just to the top of the button.if you click there and enter "webcam" then vista shows the options automatically. however if you are using xp, then go to search and give webcam.exe in the search address bar. you will be able to find the options to access it

    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.

    probably this might cause by a conflicting windows update. i would suggest try to do a system restore first, restore it to the time when the webcam was working fine. after system restore if it works then i want you to disable the windows update from control panel. if this fails then proceed to uninstalling and resintalling the webcam driver.
