Look for any driver alert signs - (warning triangles, question marks)
If so expand the Imaging folder and right click on your webcam text. Update driver using the internet when prompted.

Hi my blue light for the external hardrive turns on all the time but my computer just wont detect it \r\ndoes this mean that my hardrive doesn' work anymore? is there anyway i can all my files bac? thank...


If it used to read it, but doesnt anymore, could be a sign of a hardware failure. If another computer reads it, then it is probably a driver issue. Try to turn the power on, then insert the USB cable into the computer.

Buttons stopped working


sounds like you may have a bad switch. if you have a multimeter you can check to see if a switch is reading less then a few megaohms. if one is reading a few kilo ohms, it is probably bad.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

After reformatting my fujitsu lifebook n5010 it doesnt read it.


Is the card reader built into the computer?
I know there are a few card readers out there having trouble reading 2 gig memory cards if the computer or card reader was built over 5 years ago.
If you have a data cable for your phone and software for the phone, your computer should be able to read it that way.
