turn off your antivirus before you try to revert back to xp. your system antivirus might see this as an attack on your windows 7,thus it won't allow you to install a different system.

I am trying to fix my boss' Inspiron Mini 1012 - the Webcam is not opening. unable to find the driver. Where can i download the driver for his webcam?


@christinwayn

This computer uses the generic driver for Windows XP and Windows 7 and thus there's no need to install a driver. If you need to re-install the Webcam driver, try to do the following:

For Windows XP / 7
1. Press the Windows Key+R on the keyboard (the windows key looks like this ray_tosh_1.jpg ).
2. Type devmgmt.msc then press Enter.

3. Expand Imaging Devices, right click on your camera and choose Update Driver Software

4. Click Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software

If this doesn't work, I recommend doing a System Restore (if it was working a few days or weeks ago, step by step guide here) or a System Recovery (if you don't mind starting from scratch - you need to press F8 simultaneously during boot-up > choose Repair Your Computer and click on your account > Choose Dell Factory Image Restore).


Good luck

I am not able to download bluetooth in my system. I am using dell inspiron mini 1012 and windows XP . when i try to download it ask me to open device. how to open device?


Hi
Does your laptop support bluetooth ??? if so

when the device is downloaded and it asks you to open it i believe it means for you to click or double click to open it

if it is a rar file or a zip file then you may need to install winrar or winzip to open these files


could you please have a look in your programs to see if there is an option to re install the bluetooth from there
have a look in
start
all programs/programs
Dell
Dell recovery or installs
and have a look around there sometimes
we can re install application from here
