My webcam isnt working

Go to this site:

From there choose the products dropdown box at the top left....
locate your laptop model. From there if you go into the page of your product, they have "Driver/Manual Download" buttons for the models.

Click that and find the driver for your webcam and try to reinstall it.
They may have an update to your existing driver that will help.

You can also go into the device manager in Windows and "uninstall" the webcam by right clicking, and then reboot your machine to see if Windows automatically reinstalls the driver using plug and play.

Good Luck

You need to install the latest drivers for your printer. Is your PC VISTA operating ?
First step is to uninstall the software and reinstall the latest drivers from the given link below.

Dell V305 Drivers

If the issue does not resolve even after uninstall/reinstall, try the steps below and it should fix the issue,

This is usually caused by corrupted printer drivers. It's most often seen after an upgrade from a previous operating system when the printer was kept connected and turned on during the upgrade.

Solution: Completely Uninstall and Reinstall your Printer and 'force' XP to see new drivers

Dont forget the step 4

Step 1 Disconnect the printer from the PC

Step 2 Go to the Control Panel and click on Add/Remove Programs. Highlight any Printer Software that is listed here. Select Remove.

Step 3 From the Control Panel, click on Printers & Faxes. Right click the printer in question and select Delete

Step 4 Look at the Toolbar. Select File, then Server Properties. Look in the Drivers tab. Highlight the printers drivers listed here and click on Remove for each one.

Step 5 Reboot the PC. Do NOT reconnect the printer!

Step 6 Go to the website of your printer manufacturer. Look for new XP drivers for your model. Download the correct software. If there are no Windows XP drivers for your printer, try looking for ones for Windows 2000. In most cases these will do almost as well.

Step 7 Run the exe file you just downloaded. It should auto-start the installation program

Step 8 The software will tell you when to connect the printer.

Step 9 Once the software is installed and the printer connected, try a test page. It should be feeling great now!

My cdrom drivers are corrupt in the registry but when I uninstall and then reinstall is says that the most up to date drivers are already there

When you right click on the device to uninstall it, make sure to check the small box that includes deleteing the driver software along with the device itself. This forces the computer on startup to search windows update for the new driver.
