Updates

the webcam works..you just have to download the application Cheese and it should work flawlessly.

Also, after some configuring, the sound, modem, and touch dash on the side will become capable of working.

if you need any information about how to configure each piece of hardware, I would advise you visit:

The author of this thread made a tutorial specifically for this brand of laptop and the information on there really does work,
