New laptop

I've just purchased a new Advent 8212 with an inbuilt webcam. I know how to switch it on, but how do you change settings, let alone know whether or not you are centered, as you can't see a picture of yourself???

Did you not get a manual with it?
It may be a PDF on your hard drive??

On one of the installation discs that came with the PC, you may find a PDF copy of the user Manual on it.

There is not one little hint that it even has a webcam in the manual. I know how to switch it on by using the Fn key. That's about it.

Hi, I have looked in the forum for the activation of the webcam and yes the green light does come on when the fn key is pressed allong with the key that has the camera icon on it.
But when I try to have a video conf MSN tels me that there is no camera connected.
How do I get the thing to work ?
