I have a thinkpad R51 I can not get it to accept any kind of camera I have tried web cams I have tried regular digital cameras at least 15 different ones all with factory disks and every time it will take me all the way through set up and then say the drivers are bad error. I have tried the internet update for drivers with each one and it fails every time. I think the thing is just cursed and will not accept a camera. I even tried adding more memory nothing seems to work.

To answer your question Morgan, yes you can get a new LCD display for your laptop! Typically people sell the entire assembly which is the screen, backlight, display cable. It then fits into the thin plastic casing around your current screen. They are actually pretty easy to replace the problem is you oftentimes have to remove the computers keyboard, and other pieces of plastic on the top that might be in the way. Also there are usually anchoring screws on the bottom that have to be removed as well. There should be one little teeny tiny cable you have to pull out that connects to the mainboard, and then reconnect with the new display. Try this website if you want to order a new one their price is only $120 (which is great for a new LCD screen).
