How do I turn the camera on?


If you mean the built-in webcam and you simply want to take a picture of yourself, you'll need some kind of picture taking software like Snap! (http://snapstrip.com/) or on OS X, just open the Photobooth application. If you want to chat with somebody using your webcam, both AIM and Skype have video chatting features, but you will need a friend with AIM or Skype and a webcam as well.

AIM VIDEO CHAT NOT WORKING


Make sure that you have only one application using the webcam. Eg. if you have the webcam working in yahoo it will not be accessable in AIM. Also try to uninstall and reinstall the most recent version of AIM.

Using my built in webcam


You must have got a photo/video capture software pre-installed, like YouCam. Or you can download some freeware from Download.com and give it a try.

You can also use a chat software for video talking. It works best if you have a microphone.

Also, YouTube has a Quick Capture feature which lets you to capture a video with the webcam instantly and upload to the site.

These were some ways to put your new webcam to work. Please rate this answer, I need it. For more tips, tricks, hacks, tutorials, tweaks and fixes, visit my YouTube Channel.

You can even learn to fix the 'No Sound in PC' problem which I have seen numerous people having.

Please be informed that if you install a retail version of Operating System in your Notebook, you will loose the Preinstalled Quick Play application with which you should be able to use the webcam.

Oh, and make sure you have the web cam software installed on your laptop too, that might help. =)
