How do i use the camera on the laptop

Ok, this is how it is on most brands. Click on Start > All Programs..Look for Sony Webcam folder, it will contain a link to the webcam. Click on it and the camera will turn on.
You can also video chat with someone on MSN or Yahoo or Google chat. When you click on video chat, the webcam automatically turns on.

Is it only on MSN or also in other programs? If only MSN, try reinstalling MSN or try using an older version of MSN.
Maybe a webcam sharing program can also help.

Web Cam

It sounds like a loose connection between the camera and the computer inside the case.

The Video capture Utility says so.

And if you have no picture it comes out black.
