How can I disable the integrated camera on a Lenovo T400 Thinkpad

I am using Skype with a LogicTech QuickCam Orbit AF. When I make the call and get the Logictech device all set up, I click on " start my video" and Skype turns on my integrated camera and does not use the Logictech device. The picture with the integrated camera is yellow and not clear. How can I disable the integrated camera so that no software can turn it on. The Logictech QuickCam works great. Windows XP.

I dont see the built in camera in lenovo thinkpad t400, where does the camera place?

On most laptops it is in the top area above the display. You'll only see a small circle there. They put it there so that when the lid is open and you're sitting at the laptop the cam is at the right level to 'see' you there :)
