If you couldn't even see the hardware list, it will be hard for us to get the exact model or part number of the built-in web cam, so that we can re-install the web cam driver.

You should have verified first if your Advent Roma C900 is compatible with Windows 7 before installing the OS.

Have a quick look around and found that some advent computers store the drivers in either C:\Applications\Driver OR C:\Applications\Tool folder. There will probably be a load of different folders like graphics, sound, touchpad e.t.c. so check for one called camera, webcam, or similar.

If your built-in web cam is not working in Skype or YM, upgrade the version of your Skype or YM, and that should also do the trick.

If same problem occur, contact the manufacturer and have the necessary driver installed.

Thank you and good luck!

I need to download recovery disk for advent 7211 to return to factory settings


Your Laptop is a bit weak on support. Use the Windows 7 DVD you used to install Windows 7. If the Factory Disk came with the Laptop, there is nor reason it shouldn't load? What error do you get?

Windows 7 has become nonresponsive.


try using the mini window or hiren boot cd to access your window... then u can safely back up your data to other drive... after that, u can start the recovery your window the to factory state (if your window genuine), if your window not genuine, just delete the partition, create a new partition, format, and install a fresh window. after that u might want to check your system for viruses.... hope this will help. good luck.

Webcam no working


1. Check if the webcam driver is installed. go to Device Manager, if your computr have Vista/7 you can type "Device Manager" in the start search box in the start menu and click on Device Manager in the results list at the top. If you have XP, right click on the "My Computer" icon then Properties, from the System Properties windows go to the "Hardware" tab then from there click on the Device Manager button.

2. Once Device Manager is open, look for "Imaging Devices" click on the small + sign to expand the view and check if your webcam is listed there, if it doesn't come up or if it does and have a red "X" on it, we will need to reinstall the driver to fix it.

3. Most HP/Compaq notebook computers have a "Recovery" partition. We can reinstall all bundled programs and drivers from there. For Vista/7, type "Recovery Manager" in the search box, for XP look for the Recovery Manager in the Programs Menu.

4. When the Recovery Manager program loads, select "Hardware/Driver Reinstallation". A list of all drivers will be listed, look for the webcam driver. Follow the on screen instructions for installation.

5. When installation finishes, the computer might restart automatically or if it doesn't restart the computer.

6. Test the webcam.


Hope this help.

Error unitialized corrupt boot structure detected biohd-4 boot path, keep getting this after trying to install windows 7, cant boot disk anymore so cant install windows 7


try repairing the file system using chkdsk with /f switch. However, it is strongly recommended to run this tool only if you have a full data backup
. To do so, click \'Start\' and then \'Run\'. You can then type \'chkdsk /f <drive name>\' in the \'Open\' box and click OK. Here, the drive name should be exactly what is appearing in error message. Alternatively, you can opt for deleting the corrupt partition provided the backup is available. If no good backup exists, you should consider to use a Windows Data Recovery utility. These are powerful and valid Windows partition recovery utilities built to scan the corrupt or deleted partitions and safely recover the lost data. The applications are easy to install and use.
