S10e UPGRADED TO XP PROFESSIONAL - CAMERA doesnt work + F11 recovery is missing

hi

i upgraded my XP Preload to XP professional, and i found that my camera doesnt work anymore.

if i doubled click the camera  on my compute, there is no picture/video..

 

so i decided to use the recovery system,but when i reboot my computer. i just relized that "press F11 for recovery" is missing, 

 

my request is:

 

is there any working driver for s10e camera? (xp professional) 

 

or any way to have "press F11 for recovery" appear again?

 

to use XP preload home edition again?

Have you tried pressing Fn Esc to turn on the camera? I think there is no specific drvier for the camera since it is just a generic one. If you want to recover to original factory setting, press F11 after booting and wait for the recovery system to come on and it may take 2-3 minutes.

F11 for recovery is controlled by the MBR. If you did a fresh install of XP Pro, this wiped the MBR. Hopefully somebody can upload their MBR.

The MBR is the initial instructions for booting an operating system. The MBR in your S10 has a proprietary code which enables the F11 prompt for the recovery process. It is usually written on the first physical sector of a hard drive. If you install XP/Vista/Linux, the MBR is overwritten with a clean one [i.e. removing the F11 option].

Do you have a bunch of files labeled as follows?.........

 

factory.wsi

factory0000.dsi

factory.000

factory.001

etc.

etc.

etc.

 

If yes, you can install OneKey recovery and create recovery disks via an external cd/dvd writer.

Re: S10e UPGRADED TO XP PROFESSIONAL - CAMERA doesn't work + F11 recovery is missing

Well I think, that main problem, that firmware on website is corrupt. (At least for 4231-45U)

Possible,that this firmware designed for another version of WebCam hardware.

 

I tried to restore system by powering notebook with Recovery button.

Also I already update all drivers in system, but no luck.

I couldn't understand, how OS restore could help to recover hardware firmware issue.
