OK you can certainly add wireless to this machine. But be careful which type you buy. If this machine has windows 98 you have to ensure the wireless adaptor will be compatible. . you have two choices for the adepter type either USB or PCMCIA (aka PC Card) I'd go for the PCMCIA version, it will be more likely to play well with the older system. Also, Dont buy a MIMO card, a simple 802.11B or 802.11G compatible card will work. these are in the sub $40 price.

Dont attempt to install XP or VIsta on this PC, it will be unbearably slow. Stick with 98 or better yet windows 2000.

-Good Luck

When you said memory cards i assume you mean the RAM. You can just take out the ram and put in new ones. Nothing else.

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.

You have to go to you computer's manufacturer site and search for the correct drivers for your particular laptop. You should find them on your computer manufatcurer's site. If you do not wish to do that, do the search through Windows Update.
