    Integrated camera not found

    Forgot to mention in my original post that it was on. I went back to privacy settings and turned the camera off, then back on again. I also turned all the apps on as well ( I had a few turned off). But still no camera.

    Integrated camera not found

    I used to have access to my laptop's integrated camera. It has been a few months since I have used the camera in Zoom, but today it does not show up. I have Win10-32 Home and assume it might have been removed somehow when Windows did an update. I have done all the things I know to do. Device...

    I need to have audio go from a laptop (via the 3.5 mm headphone jack) to a Yamaha sound board that is 45 feet away. The soundboard has input via RCA jacks. If I understand, I will have to get two Bluetooth devices. One to transmit and one to receive. I think the problem is that there is 45 feet...

    License key issue with new motherboard

    All that worry and it worked out on it's own. That is, I swapped the motherboard (same chipset, but different brand) and put all the pieces back in without upgrading anything else. I booted up and it worked just like it did before the swap. I did have to update a few drivers, but it was no...

    License key issue with new motherboard

    I will be upgrading my motherboard on my computer. I have W10 Pro that I think is an OEM version, since it was installed by a computer builder company. I think it is possible to do the upgrade without re-installing Windows, but it is time to clean the system, so, regardless, would like to...

    Can't make Windows 10 autoplay work

    I have WMP, but that didn't work. I installed VLC and now when Autoplay window opens up I get a line that says "play with VLC". So that fixed it for me. Still not sure why WMP did not work. I associated all the video extensions to WMP, but now had to switch them to VLC.

    Big problem with Win7/Macrium Reflect backup

    I agree. I installed MR free version 7 and did a test backup and restore. My old version (ver 5) took 21 minutes to backup and 150 minutes to restore. With version 7, it took 16 minutes and 90 minutes, so there is a speed advantage. The drive is a boot drive with 127 GB of data.
