    Yes it is builtin - it was working fine. Then it stopped suddenly.

    I bought the laptop about 12 weeks ago.

    Why does direct sunlight affect it ?

    I see- what the webcam almst went?

    how strange.

    I have deleted the pictures file - because on one other thread it said that might work. it has made no difference at all.

    Do you think there's anything else I could try?

    Probably a problem with the webcam is it built in?

It may have been exposed to direct sunlight, if so it may be unfixable

Laptop stops loading after password screen...


Go back into system restore and restore the system to a previous point. This is most commonly a virus that locks down your icons. If you can get it to restore to a prior point then make sure you run your antivirus scanner and look for viruses and get rid of them. Hope this helps. Thanks!!

Microsoft Life CAm does not work.


Normal 0 Start Skype ThenGo to "TOOLS", click on "OPTIONS," Then go to "Audio Settings" and click on it. Make sure both the Microphone and Speaker's are correctly chosen. Then "make a free test call." Wait till the voice tells you to record. Then when finished talking wait for the test persons voice to insure your audio transmission is working. Then go back to options and test your video settings. Click on Video Settings and proceed to set up you video camera. Also, you can visit this site for additional information to setup video.
