Re: camera and scanner no longer recognised
On Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, you can get to Device Manager by right clicking on your desktop's "My Computer" (or "Computer" for Vista) and select "Properties". Then click the "Hardware" tab. Then click the "Device Manager" button (Vista may be slightly different).
As for why they are recognized on your friend's laptop but not yours, it's going to depend on what operating systems both are running and what the brand/models of the camera and scanner are. If there are drivers required to run the camera and scanner, try uninstalling and reinstalling them.

Assuming your camera is plugged in and you are on a Windows system go to:
SCANNERS AND CAMERAS
See if your camera is listed there.
RIGHT CLICK on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop.
LEFT CLICK on PROPERTIES.
LEFT CLICK on HARDWARE tab.
LEFT CLICK on DEVICE MANAGER
Expand IMAGING DEVICES
See if your webcam is listed there and if so double click on it to check the status.
Good luck and post back if this helps or if you are still having trouble.
Try this - should work
Depending on what operating system you have the way to get to device manager is different - yet necessary.
Once you search your pc -and find your DEVICE MANAGER - click on that open it and then select CD- ROM - from the list - RIGHT CLICK IT - REMOVE IT - select REMOVE - then go to your trash can or recycle bin and clean that out. - leaving everything as it is - reboot the pc - it will auto find it and put a new driver in there. Also try updating your drivers.
There are many programs that will get this done but google - speccy and also CCleaner - download CCLEANER and run it - - this is a great program - then click on the registry setting and run that too.
Speccy will get you what hardware you have and also help in updating.
Best of it

you need to uninstall that device. go to the start button, click on run and type: compmgmt.msc, press enter. goto device manager on the left side. Scroll down the list on the right side. Find the device you installed and double click it. Choose uninstall option. I hope this helps..
You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.
*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

If windows sees the drive in device manager you can attempt to update the firmware. To access device manager, right click on My Computer and then go to properties. Then click the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button. Look under DVD/CD-Rom Drives and see if it's listed. If it is, then get the model information off the the drive. Sometimes it is listed in Device Manger, sometimes not, you may have to take the drive out of the PC. After you get the info, post it here and I can point you in the right direction of a firmware update.
