soo my sister upgraded my gateway laptop which lead to EVERYTHING being deleted..
which means ... my webcam, my microphone, annd my touchpad..
like its stillt here but it doesnt show up on my laptop at all... the only time my webcam come on is if i go on a website or if im on msn or something ... but my touch pad annd my mic is GONE!!! ...
is there anything to get it back and working now??
Yeah....that tends to happen when you install a new Operating System. Anyway, it sounds like Windows wasn't able to find basic drivers for those devices. Go to Gateway's website to the Drivers page here: http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/dlcenter.asp?cmpid=topnav
and either enter your serial number or your model number, select which version of Windows 7 and then find the drivers you need (Synaptics Touchpad, Chicony Webcam and either Realtek or Conexant Sound drivers)
