That is not a good sign. Something has corrupted the MBR. You might consider reinstalling the Operating System. First you can try the repair utility if you have the install disk. And try to fix it that way.

Would like the webcam drivers for advent celeron c900 can you suggest the correct link please thank you



Hi

You don't say which Operating System you are using or what the actual reason is for you needing to install the Webcam Driver. Have you upgraded your Operating System? Or did the Webcam just stop working and you want fix it with Driver re-installation within the same Operating System?

Although, on the surface, drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually mainly about software. The Driver does not physically control the Webcam. The Operating System does. What the driver does is (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), introduce the Webcam to the Operating System and help them to communicate with one another, with Driver taking instructions from both and passing it back and forth between them.

So when one mentions Drivers, one must also mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be possible, the 2 must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of 'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Webcam will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying.

There is no such thing as a Webcam Driver. There can only be an XP Webcam Driver, a Vista Webcam Driver or a Windows 7 Webcam Driver.

Unfortunately Advent is a bad choice of computer brand for you, because it is an Own Brand of the Dixons Stores Group (owner of PC World & Curry's Digital) and because, they want all Advent computers repairs to be done, at a price, by PC World's Tech Guys, they offer NO Driver Support at all on their the Advent Website. If you type either "download" or "driver" into the Search Box on the Advent site -"0 Items Found". See here:

http://www.adventcomputers.co.uk/product-comparison

All the website offers is hardware - Laptops, Desktops and Printers for Sale. No online support at all.

So you are stuck, I'm afraid. Either go to PC World or go back to your previous Operating System or use System Restore to put your computer back to when the Webcam was working (only possible, if you have not changed Operating Systems).

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > Restore My Computer to an earlier time > select a HIGHLIGHTED date in the calendar and an event in the schedule that preceded the Webcam fault (When the webcam was working) > Restore > Restart computer? Test Webcam

There are unofficial websites that claim to have Webcam Drivers for your computer, but you would have to gamble and take your luck between these sites, because DSG tightly control all Advent Drivers and officially release them to no 3rd Party Company, so I have my doubts if anyone else has them - but it is possible. See here, for example:

I hope this helps.

Advent netbook windows not loading on switch on


You will need to do a repair install of the windows operating system. This can be problematic on netbooks with no CD drive unless you have access to an external USB CD drive and a copy of the operating system.

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.

May I know whether the Hard Drive is listed in the BIOS? This issue will occur if the Operating System is corrupted or if the Hard Drive is failed. You can use the Windows disc and reinstall the Windows once. If the reinstallation process is not successful, then you may have to replace the Hard Drive.

Try the following.
Is it under warranty? You can send the item back to the manufacturer.
If not:
1. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
2. Install the hardware drivers found on the accompanied CD installer
3. Secure an antivirus - Norton or ESET and constantly update virus definition files and run full system scan

Thanks. Cheers!

Let me start by saying, this message is usually an indicator that the hard drive has failed and needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with an operating system reload, but more often is hard drive replacement.
To check the bios settings, you will need to enter the bios at start up. There will be a screen that tells you which button to press (usually F2) in order to go into the bios or utility set up. Some machines don't give you much time to do this, so you'll need to be quick. When in the bios, check to see if the hard drive is enabled, if there is that option, some don't have the option.
If the hard drive crashed or failed it wasn't your son's fault, it would have crashed no matter who was using it at the time. Hard drives do this, they have a small electrical motor in them, and just like the starter on your car, they work or they don't, and will fail without warning.
