On the taskbar double-click the Camera Assistant Software icon I have a gateway lap - webcamicon.gif, or from the Windows® Start menu, point to All Programs, Camera Assistant Software, and then click Camera Assistant Software. The Camera Assistant Toolbar location briefly displays on the desktop.

Then, click the button START CAMERA.

If the computer doesn't detect it, You can go to desktop, right click My Computer and select PROPERTIES then click the hardware tab, then click on device manager.

Look for the listing of your webcam, it may have a yellow exclamation mark next to it. Click it and select enable.

If it doesn't show up there, then you'll have to enter the bios and find it there to enable. Please refer to your computer manual on how to do this.

Perhaps you need to download the drivers from gateway.com

    Enter to the properties of the camera and click ENABLE. If you are not able to enable, perhaps you need to update the driver, click update. It should get the drivers online.

    If it doesn't work, click rollback driver. Using your CDs that comes with the computer, you may need to re-install the drivers for the camera (You should have two CDs: OS and Drivers)

NV55C Gateway Lap Top cannot connect to wireless router


Does your WiFi work on the laptop work in another place... Starbucks for example? If so, then there is a software security issue with the router, you will need to call the ISP for adjust the settings. If you PC doesn't work with wifi at Starbucks then you have a software issue with your laptop. Go to MY Computer, Hardware/Devices and look for any yellow marks. There will probably be one where the wifi is located. (Expand all the devices by clicking on the plus "+ signs. Find the wifi modem, there are many mfrs; Broadcom and Atheros are two ones. Go into the submenus and driver update too and write everything down you find. The most important things are the description, model number, software version and version date. Navigate to the hardware mfrs site and download and install the newest drivers for the wifi modem. Re-boot and try again to establish a connection.
