    well, if its windows, its bound to happen at least once. :P But i hve had the same propblem before on a desktop. When exactly did this happen? Windows might have become corrupt from a powerful virus, or it could be as simple as a BOOT.ini problem.

The harddrive might be loose and not seated correctly in the laptop.

if this is the case, you will needto turn it off, flip it over unscrew the two screws that hold the laptop drive in, slide it out , pray to whichever god(s) you like, then reinsert the drive tight and securely, screw it back in, and power it back on.

or the Master boot record might be corrupted. you can then perhaps use a Windows (or whatever OS you use) disk, boot to the appropriate recovery console for that CD, and see if you can repair the Master Boot record or FAT Table.

The error message "Webcam Not Found, Connect USB Device Message" or a message stating to plug in a webcam, indicates that there is an issue with thewebcam hardware.

The system will need to be serviced to correct this issue.

If the error is just regarding webcam not found, the drivers and the Application has to be installed.

Hi make sure you have no usb pen drives, floppy disks, or cdroms inserted then switch on the machine. If you still get the same error then your hard disk drive has malfunctioned or corrupted. If you have a restore cd or DVD insert this and restart the machine you may get an error message stating your hard disk drive is not found if it has malfunctioned.
