Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook ?

Web Cam I recently purchased an Acer laptop maily because it came with a built in webcam so I could talk with family across the country. Howwever, I have no Idea how to use it and I cannot find any help in the paperwork that came with the laptop or on line could you offer some assistance?


Answers :

Mmm if the cammera works... just install windows live messenger and add a contact, then open a chat windows with that contact by double clicking on that contact in the list... and just next to the small picture of that contact and of your picture too you will see a little webcam icon... just click, try right or left button on that icon and choose the option, start a video chat, or invite or ask for videochat... i dont remember exactly the line. If you start a videochat from your icon, you will first see your camera because you are asking the other to chat on cam then the other hast to accept first and only then you will be able to see. So the contact must be online and have a camera for you to see, otherwise the can see you.

If this does not work, you might have a problem with your camera.
Msn has a wizard helper that will guide you to config your cam if is is working but first try what I wrote before.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR. I thought I could connect the laptop's VGA to the RGB port on the VCR, tune to the right channel, adjust the display on the laptop & poof --- big screen monitor. Well, no such luck. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, it go directly to the TV, I would need to convert the PC's VGA to coaxial. I thought it would be easier going through the VCR's RGB.


No that will NOT work, first the PC's VGA doesn't have any "Channel" Second you must install Drivers for said VGA card, and the card MUST have a TV out connector either SVHS, or Composite, video out, or as of late HDMI. You Cannot "Receive" a VGA, si ... Toshiba Satellite L300-EZ1004V Notebook
