Try pressing Fn and F10 at the same time. This should turn your webcam on.

Re: webcam on advent 9215 not working

I got my webcam on my advent 9215 laptop to work by going to the device manager in control panel. Clicking on the imaging devices tab. Select the usb 2.0 camera, right click and disable it. Restart the laptop then go back to the device manager and turn the camera back on. Go to msn messenger start the webcam setup. The LED light on the webcam will turn red this means it is working. This worked for me hopes this helps!

Webcam not working in omegle

Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam
Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark ?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp.
Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
Windows XP/Vista/7/8
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution
note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
this is a free driver solutions
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you
want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
If you still have no webcam installed
Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer.
Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there.
Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

Hi there, I have an Advent Modena M100 and want to put bluetooth on it - how please? Cheers!

According to:

it was an OPTION (not a STANDARD) feature to have BlueTooth support.

So, you may already have BlueTooth capability.

If not, then for about $15, purchase a small BlueTooth device that connects to one of the USB ports, to add BlueTooth functionality.

How do i reinstal my camera toolbar on my m series gateway laptop my web cam works but cant find my tool bar do i need to download anything again

I suspect the webcam toolbar program is not gone, just not obvious as to where it is.

Go to Start > All Programs and scan down the list for a folder relating to your webcam. In it will be something similar to Webcam Console or Webcam manager. It may be in a Gateway folder. Once found, Click on the program and you should have your toolbar back.

If you want a short-cut for it on your desktop, when you find it in All Programs, right click on it and choose Send To and choose Desktop.

I bough the norton 360 2.0 premier edition with 2 year subscription upgrade with up to 3 computers use on line 12/1/2008 I pplaced it on my table top computer ok. A day or so later I went and put it on my...

Hi! I have previously had problems with AntiVirus (Norton once) being disabled by a virus which made it hard to start it going again. There are a lot of viruses do not show up on Norton,. You should install a spyware catcher such as Spyware Doctor. I have Stopzilla, (anti-spyware) and cannot yet comment about its helpfulness. They are not free but cost a lot less than Norton. A lot of people prefer AVG Grisoft Free as their Antivirus prpgram but we all need an anti spyware program !Because I get mainly spywares, and rarely viruses, I feel that Norton may be getting obsolete and not providing sufficient protection. I call them all, loosely speaking viruses

Your computer has crashed due to what i will call loosely a virus, it could be spyware trojan etc.

What I'd do first it to go back to your task manager, and try to end the
processes and programs that you see running.
Can you see on topbar of task manager, there is a choice "programs" and one "processes".
See the running programs and processes, do you recognize any names there?
The virus may be one of the processes running there. Dont end them unless you know
what you are doing
End the programs you see running there. Try to do so by one.
Things should get better once you have closed a lot of programs.
Its a very slow process and you need patience

If that does not work, you will need to restore to older settings and your
files and docs stored on hard drive will not get lost

You need to do a system restore.
How you do that depends on what make you have such as Dell, advent etc
Maybe you'll need to switch on, and while it is booting, press F12 or F10.
You will to check with the manufacturer how to do system restore. You can
find instruction manuals online etc.
Here your computer goes back to the way it was at a restore point created on a
previous restore date.

you probably wont need to do that. Your stored files and programs you have installed
will get wiped out.Unless they are super-important, let them go

Get back to me if you have more difficulties and i hope u found that to be of somehelp
