    No...nothing logged.

    The camera does not turn off completely...it just goes extremely dark and you can see the outlined shadow of my head.

    Check the Event Viewer in Administrative Tools and post back if they note the webcam turning on and off.

Check the settings for the autobalancing, something sounds like it's glitched. Also, try the head-tracking. Try turning it off and returning it to normal zoom.

Hi. I think you have uninstall your display driver and download the updated drivers on the Lenovo driver support website.

Go to this website and download the video driver for your laptop: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?doctypeind=9&template=/productselection/landingpages/downloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo
just make sure that you choose the correct or corresponding operating system that you have on your laptop (e.g XP, VISTA or Windows 7)

After downloading the video driver install it on your laptop then restart you computer. Goodluck!

Ibm t61 turns on but all I get is a blank black screen.


Hi,
This sounds rather bad. You're not even getting a "thinkpad" screen?
Try unplugging the power and removing the battery for a minute and attempt to power up again.
If it's still not starting, try removing the memory modules (if there are two, remove one and try powering up, then try to remove the other one). Although I seem to remember that newer thinkpads will still show thinkpad logo and attempt to POST even with bad memory (then throw an error), it's always worth a try.
If the above don't make any difference then I'm afraid most probably your motherboard has failed. In theory you could also try swapping the cpu-I've seen a cpu go bad ONCE in my several years of tinkering with laptops.
T61 is a current model-wouldn't it still be under warranty from lenovo? Might be worth checking the serial on their website. Otherwise it's time to search for T61 donor laptops on ebay - ordering a new motherboard from lenovo parts suppliers will most probably be far too expensive.
Good luck, hope you get it working again!

Blank screen upon startup


Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.
