Cant find a driver for my advent 5712 laptop built in webcam

You may want to try a freeware tool to assist in finding a driver for it such as this one (top rated/downloaded one on CNet):

It's possible that a driver update may help but most built-in webcams are typically auto-detected and generic Microsoft drivers are installed for them in most current versions of Windows.

If that utility does not help, it is also possible that a program is loading at startup that is monopolizing the camera and thus causing it not to be recognized by a second application.

I need to do a system restore on my advent 5712 I haven't got any restore discs!!!!! Help!!!

Hello !

Please check, if you have been given any restore partition on your laptop or not.

1. it may be hidden so right click on My Computer and click on Manage.
2. Then, go to Disk Management and find out is there any SYSTEM RESTORE PARTITION of like 10 / 20 GB.

If Yes, then restart the PC on Boot immediately press F8 ( ins some case F10) and follow the Onscreen instructions to restore from restore partition.

If No partition has been given, then use any Retail/ OEM disk to reinstall the OS.
It is Okay to use it as far as you have got the Legit Key.
Please make sure that Key and version on CD matches.

I have recently got my advent modena m202 and i cant work my built in web cam. i can't find it in the start menu. please help.


Can you have a look on your keyboard at the keys at the top
does one of the number keys have a picture of a webcam on it
if it does please try pressing

the FN+F plus that number
so if the webcam picture is say key no 6 like the msi laptop

then we would do this

FN+F6 that would activate the webcam
then i would go to start programs then find the webcam software
click on it and try to find something like webcam launch to load the software

good luck

Well my laptop is advent and i have a built in webcam , its kind of broke but im looking to go on msn messanger to go on video calls with them and it wont let me because its broke so can you help me ?

If the webcam is broken, then if your laptop is under warranty period have it replaced.
If not then you will have to buy a usb webcam.
Broken Webcam for laptops are preety hard to fix at home. They might get fix at service stations.

Why not in windows explorer. Right click on My Computer > Explore. It should list your cam below Hard disk Drive , CDROM drive, as Scanner and Camera as USB Camera / Composite Device. Dbl click to start the Cam
