Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, I let my little brother use my laptop and when I came on it the next day my time and date was all messed up, now when I go to use my webcam it says the camera cannot be found. So I was wondering that if there was a way he could have turned it off and if so how do I turn it back on?

You can change the time and date by clicking "start", control panel, date and time. adjust the time and date to your current time and date.

For the camera, you can turn it on by choosing scanners and cameras in the control panel and right click camera and activate.

Adjusting day/date on a self winding Seiko, 7S2GB


mcdevito75 here, Your stem has 1 positions to set the date easily without haveing to cycle the watch 60 times. First pull the stem out to set the day, set the day 1 day before the day you want, next, push the crown back in, NOW! Slip a finger nail just under the crown from the back as there is more room, it may take some practice so be patiernt and gently, gently lift the crown to it"s first position, once in it"s first position turn the stem and see the DATE change, set the DATE to 1 DATE before the DATE you want, NOW pull the stem out to set the day date and time of day. Your watch is set and the day date will change on time, a little past mid nite.
