I don't know where or how to hook up a web cam to this monitor.
I can't find anyplace on the monitor to attach a web cam. I am not very computer savvy but it seems other monitors have a place on the top of the monitor to install a web cam. This one does not.
Could you tell me where it is and suggest a good, inexpensive web cam. The monitor number is, Dell 19 inch E198WFP
Thank you for you help

Which part of the video-cards are "too large" -- the electronic circuitry, or just the "spine"?
If just the "spine" is too tall, then unscrew the spine from the card, and attach a shorter spine.
Or, if you are "brave", then run "*****" -- don't attach any "spine" to the video-card.
Just connect the VGA/DVI cable from the monitor directly to the video-card.
Do you hear the harddrive start up? When you push the power button (or switch on the back) do the lights go out? If you hear fan running and hard drive start up then the computer itself might be on but the monitor isn't. Check the power to the monitor, the connection between monitor and computer to make sure they are all on and connected.
If you don' t hear the fan running then you have other problems. Any blinking lights would indicate something is getting power. I'm assuming the computer was working before the power button was pushed... If the monitor is actually working, you could hook up another monitor to check too then you have other problems but need more info to know what that could be.
would need to know the answer to the above questions as well as if it was working before, what was done, what changed between it working and this problem. Also what age the machine etc.
I have had the same problem in the past too. Here is what I did, first disconnect the web cam from your computer. Then go to the manufactures website and download the latest drivers they have for the model webcam you have. Install the drivers first, then hook up the web cam. You should then get a pop up window at the bottom of the screen saying a new device or drivers are being installed. Once this finish's reboot (restart) your computer and your web cam should now work. You may have to adjust the settings for sound or brightness but those are minor things. If you install it the way I suggest it should work, either that or you have a bad web cam.
If it is an external web cam , it should have a USB connector . If so , simply plug it into your laptop from your desktop..(after windows is fully loaded and your computer is in a "calm" state .) Your computer should recognize the web cam and will attempt to load drivers for it . If your web cam came with a installation disk , install it first . Select installation or setup from the CD menu and follow the directions to install the web cam .
If you can go into the setup on this machine you may find a place where you can reset it. Failing this if you remove the pcb battery cell and then turn the machine on after a while it may reset the password to NULL or No password. Then yu can put in a new password of your choice in the reset window.
just attach it to the usb port in the pc and it will detect and said to provide him the cam driver and giver him the driver and it is install and ready for use.
some web cam are plug and play the dont need and driver just attach it to the usb port and after few second the are ready to use.if the pc is not detecting the cam on the port it mean cam is damage.
"The ViewPanel VP181 supports both SVGA and DVI (digital video) ports and works with a wide variety of Macs and PCs."
You should be able to hook it up providing that you have a power cable and a video cable. Some come with one or both cables attached. If not, you may have to purchase one or both.
Most people have at least a SVGA connection that usually has a blue connector on the back of the computer that your monitor may already be hooked to. If the VP 181 monitor doesn't have a cable with that connector on the end, then you'll need to purchase one.
