RE: advent modena webcam inbuilt not operating

whats the history of this machine? have you just reinstalled windows on it?
I think you need to give us the sequence of events leading up to the current problem, as it sounds like you may have missing drivers...

RE: advent modena webcam inbuilt not operating

Try Control Panel, click on Tools> Audio and Video Setup> Next to skip Audio and then your Webcam may be in there. See if you can choose the option to Enable/Disable by right clicking on the cam icon.

RE: advent modena webcam inbuilt not operating

I wonder if Windows Update has anything to do with it?

RE: advent modena webcam inbuilt not operating

You could just check in Device Manager to see if windows still detects your webcam. If it shows up in there, it's probable that it is a software issue. :)
