Gateway webcam

Dear Tori,
Greetings from New Zealand! You have not supplied much info - so we'll start from the beginning...SAFELY Remove web-cam connection - (I presume it is a USB connection?) - by R-clicking on the little icon - usally green - in the systray by the clock, & following instructions. Have you installed the web-cam "driver" software from the cd that came with the web-cam? If not then do so. Plug in web-cam USB & wait until pop-ups notify you that web-cam device is detected & ready to use. L-Click on "START" > All Programs > Web-cam program.
If this option does not work/is not available, then OPEN "My Computer" & click on web-cam icon. This should start web-cam software & you SHOULD see your smiling face on screen!
If Nothing works - then you will have to make a note of the model & contact Gateway for support.
I hope that this helps! GBU! - Bruce.

Web Cam picture continually goes from dark to light and then light to dark.

Please remove the web cam and uninstall the driver of the web-cam. now reinstall the driver after the PC was restarted and then connect the web-cam to be detected and installed.
if this wont work then the web cam is faulty- a hardware issue.

Hey! well ive got a advent notebook with a built in webcam and it says i dont have a webcam ? how doo i find it ?


The easiest way to find your web cam is by clicking on the start page on your desktop screen, You will see a small bar at the bottom of the start page that says "start search".

Type in the word "web cam" into the bar and you will see the web cam logo among the search result. Click on it and your web cam will open and you can start using the web cam

How do i turn on the webcam on my acer 2930

I would assume this is a built in web-cam. Normally a web-cam software comes installed on your computer and all you need to do start the software and the web-cam will start. Or you may use this link to get a free web-cam software.
Note, if the web-cam is not a built in web-cam this will work a bit differently.
