Let me know the Advent Laptop Model and the Operating System Installed on the laptop. If possible, I would like to request you to please let me know about the Webcam drivers, if you've installed it, it should be detected automatically or it should show up on the My Computer as "USB Camera" etc.. etc..

    Please let me know the Model of your Advent Laptop and the operating system installed on it (i.e. windows xp, windows vista, etc..etc..).

    In the meantime, please uninstall the webcam drivers/software and restart your computer after running a registry cleaner (click here to download registry/system cleaner), open the link, click "Download Now", wait for 20 seconds and again click "Download File Now" [Don't click anywhere except i've mentioned here], after it's downloaded, install the program (i.e. Ccleaner) [just click "next" or "yes" or "Ok" and then "Finish"], after the installation is finished, the program will automatically start [else double the Ccleaner on the desktop], click "Run cleaner" and then proceed forward with it [if you are asked or presented with any warning message, click "yes"]. After it's done, click "Registry" on the left pane with blue icon and then click "Scan for issues", wait for few seconds until the scanning is completed, and again click "Fix Selected issues" then, "No", again click "Fix all selected issues" then "Close". Now close the program and all the other running programs and restart your computer.

    I hope you still have the cd that came with the laptop, if not i'll give you the link where you can download the drivers/software for your camera. If you still have the cd, insert it and install the Webcam Driver/Software. Once it's done, restart your computer and try again. Else i'll assist you further after I receive a response from you.


    Good luck.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

Cant find a driver for my advent 5712 laptop built in webcam

You may want to try a freeware tool to assist in finding a driver for it such as this one (top rated/downloaded one on CNet):

It's possible that a driver update may help but most built-in webcams are typically auto-detected and generic Microsoft drivers are installed for them in most current versions of Windows.

If that utility does not help, it is also possible that a program is loading at startup that is monopolizing the camera and thus causing it not to be recognized by a second application.

I don't know how to turn my built in webcam on.

there's usually a webcam switch on the keyboard (look at the row of "fx" keys along the top) some require you to press "fn" first.

I have a built in youcam webcam in my advent 4211 netbook that has stopped working. I don't know what need to look at to get it working again. Which drivers? Whenever I click on it the programme says...

no need to pay extra, just reinstall the drivers from the cd you got with the notebook, if not with the help of the model number (Advent 4211c PC Notebook) you can download the drivers from sites, also try rollback driver or updating the can driver, if any questions please let me know.

Well my laptop is advent and i have a built in webcam , its kind of broke but im looking to go on msn messanger to go on video calls with them and it wont let me because its broke so can you help me ?

If the webcam is broken, then if your laptop is under warranty period have it replaced.
If not then you will have to buy a usb webcam.
Broken Webcam for laptops are preety hard to fix at home. They might get fix at service stations.
Sorry mate not much of help here.

I Can't Find My Webcam

A lot of the advent range do not come with offline webcam software as standard, and your model is one of them. Try a freeware app. like YAWCAM or pay for one like ArcSoft.

Hope this helps.
