My webcam is not connected,

What I could recon from your question is that your webcam driver is not installed in your PC .

Please be informed that any Driver software depends upon the hardware make and Operating System. So, you need to know all these information's to do get going.

Please find the Driver software's of your webcam inside the installation disk provided with the System at the time of purchase. In case if you do not posses the same then you need to download the driver software from the web. As you have not mentioned your Webcam make and Operating System you are using, I am unable to give you the direct download link. However you can download the same by visiting the website of the company that manufactured the Webcam.

Even here you need to be careful to download the correct software for your PC. You need to be exact with the Webcam Model number and the OS that you are using.

After you have downloaded the driver, to install just plug in the webcam on to your PC and then Double click on the driver setup.exe file and go on clicking 'Next' until you get the 'Finish' option and restart the PC.

How do you get the

Sometimes drivers get corrupted. You might have to go to HP.com, and look for the "youcam" driver for the computer. If you made any changes to the computer such as upgrading the Operating System, this will be crucial. You can sometimes check in the multimedia section on your computer to verify that the cam is turned on.

Cant turn off the touchpad

Hi Madre - Looking at the manual I can understand your frustration.

To turn the touchpad on and off you have to use button #6 (see below). Most certainly not intuitive!


Enjoy your real mouse.

Want to wipe out/erase puter

Do a low-level format of the hard-drive. This will remove the operating system as well so it will no longer boot.

Compaq cq50 touchpad isnt working,

You have a device conflict. Laptops do not like USB mice.
To fix this you will need the hands-on help of an expert, or
assistance from Compaq (good luck) or the mouse maker.

Compaq Presario CQ50 notebook screen goes fuzzy

it sounds like you've damaged the cable that goes from your graphincs card to your screen or when you move it to 90degrees it's disconnecting. it's usually caused by someone opening the laptop and not putting the cable back in the right place, or loose screws in your hinges or a broke hinge. there are plently of videos showing how to open it up. follow one of them and make sure your wires are sitting in the right place, you don't have loose screws and the hinges aren't broken.

I don't have recovery disk for laptop CQ50-110

when you say you have power, do you mean the screen light up and you get through bios and it tries to start windows or do you mean the lights come on and the screen stays black. if the screen lights up either windows is corrupt or your hard drive is broken. if the screen stays black then your motherboard is faulty. it's usually the connections between the graphics card and the motherboard that's the problem which is caused by your cooling fan getting full of dust and your laptop overheating. that might all sound really technical but basically if your screen lights up it's not too big a problem, if it doesn't then you're best selling the laptop for spares and buying another one
