camera won't show

I can't get a window up to show my webcam.
I have just bought an Advent laptop 12" from pcworld.
When I hit the correct F10 key the tiny green light near the cam comes on, but no window pops up and no evidence of webcam software.
What can I do to use my built-in cam please?

this could be a software problem - either not installed or faulty. Go to makers site and download the software for the cam. If there are no separate details for it go to the advent site and download the manual to find the details. You could also download SIW which will give all the details of the pc.
