Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Loaded the software for a philips spc 500n webcam on my Dell and it's completely ballsed it up, I can't even log on now. I keep getting a message that that a Microsoft programme is trying to repair the problem but cannot do it and to contact my administrator. I've tried to restore the back-up before the installation but no joy and I've got things that I haven't backed up yet(I've only just bought the pc) so don't want to risk a complete rstoration. Any ideas before I give them a call.

There may be a problem with the USB device. Does it allow log-on when unplugged? run MSconfig - startup tab and turn everything off, reboot. Does it allow log-on?

I need yahoo messenger vioce and video call setup on my dell 3521


If you own a web camera or if your Dell computer comes with a built-in web camera, you can complete a video conference on your computer.
There are a variety of free chat programs that provide free video messaging such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger or Google Chat.
With these programs, all you will need to do a video conference is add the person you wish to conference with to your buddy list.

Download and install a messaging software program such as Skype, Yahoo or Google Chat if you do not already have one installed on your Dell computer.
No matter which messaging program you use, the video call or conferencing feature works the same.
Launch the messaging software on your Dell computer.
Click on your buddy list or contact list.


Click on the contact with whom you'd like to video conference.
If he isn't one of your contacts, you will need to add him to your messenger contact list by clicking on "New" and then "New Contact."

Click on the contact name and select "Video Call."
You will now have a video conference call on your Dell computer.

How do i work the webcam on the studio one 19 desktop dell? I see it on the computer but there's no button to press to get it to open and/or work or even get to it.


You should be able to activate the webcam with any webcam enabled software. There's no buttons or anything to "turn it on" as it will turn on with software that needs webcam.

For example, try using it with the video chat feature built into Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, or Windows Live Messenger. They should all detect the webcam automatically and start using it.

Xps 420 keeps freezing or going to blue screen


Same with my Dell Vostro 420. At this rate I will just buy a new PC as I am wasting too much time on this. We tried usual stuff like cleaning inside, making cooler, removing certain virus software, still no luck. I have to restart 4 times a day and keep saving material. Can only restart by turning it off by pulling out power socket.

I just bouht a new Dell 530 with Vista and would like to install Studiom (plus) version 9. I keep getting, you must log on as a administrator message. What do I have to do to install this in my new...


You need to log in as Administrator. Are you the only person who uses this PC, and if so, was Vista pre-loaded when you purchased it? It was not set up properly; your account should have Administrator rights. They should also have given you an Administrator account password. Contact your vendor ASAP and tell them you need this done.

Let me know how it turned out!
