Hi I Have an Advent 5611 and i cant get the integrated web cam to work ,i have tried Fn + F11 but nothing happens( no light comes on) i have gone into device manager to see if it is there with no luck. It worked for some years in the past i was not using it that much so i am not sure when it stopped working.

If it isn't listed in Device Manager, and there are no error symbols (eg question marks) in there either, that means Windows is not detecting the webcam because it has failed and is therefore effectively non-existent as far as the operating system is concerned.

You can remedy that by buying a third-party webcam, but do get a well-known brand which has a good support website for drivers etc. (eg Logitech, Creative or Microsoft).

Hi Phill22. There are some yellow triangles in Device Manager they are,Network Adapter, Microsoft 6to4 Adapter #6 and in Portable Devices, MTP Device and Windows Mobile based device. Would any of the above be causing the problem.
