Why wont brand new Gateway NE56R31u with Windows 8 on it detect built-in webcam?
Question: Why wont brand new Gateway NE56R31u with Windows 8 on it detect built-in webcam?
Yesterday I purchased a Gateway NE56R31u with Windows 8 on it from Wal-Mart. Every time I try to use my Video web camera app it says No webcam device detected. Please plug a webcam device into your computer. If you are using an integrated camera please make sure that it is turned on. When I try to use Camera app it simply says Connect a camera. I’ve been searching for how to fix this issue for hours. Somebody please help me. I cant use Skype, Oovoo, noting…
Try going to device manager and find your camera (if you can’t find it, it is a hardware defect). Click properties and then click update driver. If this does not work, try downloading a driver from the manufacturer’s website. There is also a possibility that it is not yet supported fully under windows 8, and you will have to wait or downgrade to windows 7.
gateway nv59c review
this is my review on the gateway nv59c laptop. this laptop is very very nice and i would suggest this laptop to anybody who is looking for a new laptop and doesnt want to pay to much. it has intel core i3-330m processor, 4 GB ram, 320 GB harddrive, Blu-ray player,1280 x 1024 webcam, full keyboard with a numpad,15.6 inch screen, 3 usb ports, hdmi port, vga port, headphone and microphone jack,and loud speakers. this laptop gets absolutly no finger prints on it unless your hand are greasy but if they are you probly should wash your hands before you use any laptop. the speakers are actualy pretty loud and the power brick is really small its smaller then a macs power brick. it also has a multitouch mouse pad. this laptop barley gets hot so it will not burn your leg off when your using it and the fan is very quiet. for $699 this laptop is a steal. so go check one out for yourself and you will be hooked.
