  • Hi,


    Based on my research, I am afraid that you have not installed the WebCam Application. Please download and install it from Gateway Download Webpage. There are two WebCam applications in Applications tab, you may only need to download one of the two ones.

    If issue persists, it is recommended to contact Gateway Support for help.


    Hope this helps.

  • Hi,


    How did you open the webcam? What application do you use?


    In Windows 7, the webcam is not listed in Windows Explorer. Please check if you can find it in "Devices and Printers":

    1. Click Start button->Devices and Printers.
    2. If the webcam is installed successfully, it will be listed and will be recognized by applications like Windows Live Messenger.


    But in Devices and Printers, you may not able to open the webcam and start capturing. You can use webcam's capture application to do this.  If the webcam is not installed, go to Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find out if it's compatible with windows 7.

    Hope this helps.
