Goto start>right click on computer>manage>Device manager>Webcam uninstall then restart computer. Computer should auto install it back after restart. This should fix it. If not Uninstall software then the device and reinstall software. If this does not fix then it will be a hardware issue and will either need a new one or fix the current one.

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter

if there is no netework adapter in device manager or any device that is not instaled try checking in BIOS if it is enabled. sometimes after power loss bios is reset. if it is enabled in BIOS that short power outage probably killed your network adapter. you can add some PCI network adapter and solve your problem.

Dell latitude d520 starts with battery but not with ac adaptor

It could be a bad adapter, a short that drags everything down when plugged in.. could be a short inside the computer doing the same thing.

Borrow an adapter to see if you get the same result, if a friend or shop will help you with that.

A digital VOM could tell you if the right voltage is being put out by the adapter. Read on it, if it's supposed to be DC voltage and you get AC, the adapter is bad.

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. It has shut down on me in the middle of my session and now will not come back on. I plugged in the adapter for it to charge a few mins then the charging light shows but...

Don't think as a battery error, if you can use without the battery ,pls check with ac adapter without battery.because there may be a short circuit with charging unit or power side, you have to test before blow up the unit. if blow up chip or mos fet, it will be hard to repair.

I recently had my computer "cleaned out" from any viruses, a new ethernet cable also...since I have not been able to get wireless connect to our playstation 3 or dsi is...

Check your Device Manager and verify that the network adapter is listed and it's driver is installed. If not, you will need to download the driver from another computer (connected to the Internet) to a USB flash drive and transfer it to this computer because you cannot get the Internet without the Network Adapters' driver. Go to the manufacturers website, search for your particular model of computer, select the drivers download section, and locate the network (LAN) driver. The shop who repaired your computer should of done this for you.

I have a 2001 infiniti i30 and my car will start but than shut down unless i press the gas for a couple of secs

If you need to give it gas to keep it idling, it is probably the idle air control valve that is shot. It fails by leaking antifreeze into the solenoid of the valve and shorting it out. (quite common with the i30) Unfortunately, when it shorts out, it also shorts an integrated circuit in the engine computer. I ordered the IC and had the engine computer repaired by a tv repair man. I had to order 10 IC's off the internet. If you are looking for an IC, email me.

Cant connect to internet verizon says network

Have you installed tnhe drivers for your Network Adapter? Without the drivers the adapter is, as far as the computer knows, not there. Did you get a disk with your computer and/or adapter? If so install the drivers and problem should be solved.

Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.

Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?
