Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. When it was in xp, my webcam was present in windows explorer. Now it is nowhere to be found. I found out that I can still use it through websites and chats with webcam capabilities. I would like to know which program and which drivers are needed to use the webcam at any time. Thank you.

First go to device manager and see what webcam is in your laptop. Then go to the site for your brand of laptop, ie toshiba--- the support section and see if they have a download for that webcam for windows 7. Sometimes there is also software for the cam you can download too. Best place to look is on the manufacturer's support section for proper drivers and software. That might place a shortcut on your desktop again.

I lost my emails since I upgraded from windoows xp to windows 7


Features available through Yahoo! Mail include unlimited storage, the ability to view photos and videos from your inbox and the ability to send 50 files or 100MB worth of attachments in a single email.

You can also access Yahoo!'s instant messaging software from your inbox and check email on your mobile phone and other Internet-enabled devices.

Before signing up for Yahoo! mail, check its compatibility with your version of Internet Explorer.Standard Yahoo! Mail


Yahoo! Mail's standard interface works with Internet Explorer 7 and higher. However, Internet Explorer 7 users may be unable to use the reply bar, slideshows or Yahoo! Messenger from their inbox.

To access these features, use at least Internet Explorer 9. All Internet Explorer users must have Windows 7, XP or Vista to use the standard form of Yahoo! mail. Mac operating systems using Internet Explorer are not supported by the current version of Yahoo! Mail.
Older Option


Users who want to use Yahoo! Mail Classic will find it compatible with Internet Explorer 6, as well as newer versions of the browser.

Yahoo! announced to customers in July 2011 that it would soon stop supporting Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo! Mail Classic works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.

Yahoo! Mail Classic lacks many of the upgrades found in the current version of the email program.

Upgrades
While Yahoo! Mail supports older versions of Internet Explorer, the company recommends that users upgrade to the most current version.

Yahoo! says using the newest browser software provides more speed and added protection against viruses and software.
Enabling ActiveX

If you plan to use the current version of Yahoo! Mail on a Windows machine, you'll want to enable your computer's ActiveX controls so you can access all the features of the email program.

To do this, go to the "Tools" menu or the gear symbol in Internet Explorer, then select "Internet Options" and "Security."

Click on "Internet," then "Custom Level."
Scroll down to "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting." Enable each of these options and save your settings.

Reboot Internet Explorer.

I used twinkle cam successfully in windows xp. I have upgraded to windows 7. How do I get the driver or will anything work?


According to http://www.chicony.com.tw/download/di/driver.asp , the available drivers were written in 2004. Chicony has stopped supporting their cameras for newer Windows OS versions. I suspect they never made a 64-bit version of the driver for XP 64-bit.

If you had the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you might be able to use the compatibility mode to install the driver. To check your version, click on Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. Look for your Windows version and check if it says x64. If you see that in the description, you have the x64 bit version. Otherwise, right-click on the driver file from the above site (after extracting the files from the zip file). Choose Properties and the Compatibility tab. Check the box for always Run this program in the compatibility mode and set it to Windows XP in the drop-down menu. You may need to repeat this on the camera software as well.

If you have a 64-bit version Windows Home Premium, you may be better off upgrading to Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate. Then you can download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode, if your hardware can handle that software. This gives a virtual version of the 32-bit version XP that will run your camera. (The CPU needs to have virtualization support and it has to be enabled in the BIOS. Then you need enough memory to give the virtual XP at least 512MB -1GB of memory.) If you already have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, just use XP mode. Other virtual PC software exists but they require a licensed version of XP. (If you can find a valid license.) The only issue I've found is that files saved to the C: drive in one OS can't be accessed by the other OS. You have to transfer the files with an external drive, flash drive or burn the file to optical disc.

Dual boot systems with XP and Windows 7 can be set up if you have the XP license. Then pick the OS you need when you boot up the computer. This requires you to repartition the hard drive or have two bootable hard drives. Make sure to back up before partitioning the drive.

I wish that I had better news for you.

How to returned my webcam on my loptop when my loptop is upgrade to windows 7 my webcam is lost. before is windows xp.


You have to download windows 7 driver for your webcam because it will not function if you did not install the driver for window 7. Check the brand name and model example a4tech, go their official website and search for the driver commonly you can download the driver by clicking the tab support or download. In case you can not find the driver for windows 7 you can not use your camera. In that case you need to buy a webcam that supported by windows 7 or has a driver for windows 7. Or downgrade your operating system to windows xp! Have a nice day!

There is something wrong with the specific webpage that you tried to load.
What is the URL of that web-site?

You are using Internet Explorer 7 under Windows XP.
Please upgrade to Internet Explorer 8, to see if that fixes the problem.

I am running windows xp at present. i want to run windows 2000 so i can also install google chrome in my computer. what will i do?


You don't need Windows 2000 to install Google Chrome. I am sure that Windows XP supports Google Chrome. Otherwise you will have to upgrade to either Windows Vista or Windows 7.
