You can buy and add a usb Webcam and attach it to the top of the screen of the laptop. A lot of people do this because the laptop camera has stopped working or is a poor quality camera. I would recommend buying a new webcam. You could try checking in the device manager under "Imaging Devices" Click on the arrow and open "Imaging Devices" To Access Device manager From Control Panel in Vista/W7
See this link: If it shows no Webcam at all then the Webcam is bad. If there is a yellow symbol next to your webcam, then the driver is not working. Your laptop uses a Windows Operating System Driver for the Webcam. For that you would have to go to a computer Tech. Again, I would recommend buying a new webcam. You'll be a lot happier with the results and you'll spend a lot less money. Webcams can run from $10 to over $100. Your budget will determine that. You get what you pay for. If you want decent video then spend around $40 to $50.

My computer had a virus so i wiped it out and installed windows XP but now my built in webcam wont work, how do i get it to work again?

Assuming you had XP on it before: This means there is a driver for the camera. First try the easy thing - go to control panel, then add hardware. It will scan for new devices. If it finds the camera, let it install it. If it does not, then try going to the laptop manufacturer website and see if they have the driver. I did a quick search and found most of the laptops like yours have Vista on them. If you went back to XP from Vista, you might have trouble finding a driver for XP.

Veo webcam 333vb - driver for vista

Hello nodriver, Guess what vista more then likely will never have a driver for this device. Veo technically went out of business. Some of their old drivers can be found on line but nothing for Vista. In fact most of the cameras don't have drivers that work on Vista. They have Vista compatable drivers which are put together in a kludgy fashion. The only thin I can say is get another camera and wait for the Vista driver to come out.
