    Hi all,

    I've just bought a new Advent 9515 laptop which has an integrated webcam. But the webcam doesn't seem to be working? do i need to do something ?

    ive never heard of a computer coming with a webcam. maybe the drivers need installed? does it say what brand of webcam u have? advent isnt a brand im familiar with. what version of windows do u have? maybe its not compatible with your version of windows. im only guessing as to what the problem might be.

    Many laptops now come with an integrated webcam installed into the casing above the screen.

    What Operating System did the computer come with (XP, Vista, or another?) and what program are you trying to use the webcam with?
