Well depending on the model of your laptop I'm assuming, since you said it was a built in webcam, you may want to visit the manufactures website and see if they offer a driver download for your particular model on their support page. If there is not a download there contact me with the make and model of your computer and I will assist you in finding and installing the correct driver in order to get the device functioning.

Hi, if you want you could try pressing Fn+Esc key to enable or disable your webcam or try updating first the drivers for your webcam. You can find all the drivers for your laptop on this website regarding your DVD rom you could try updating the drivers or try deleting the upper or lower filter on the registry and restarting your computer afterwards just follow this instruction on how to delete the upper or lower filters on the registry
1. go to start search or if your using XP go to RUN then type in there regedit then press enter
2 go to this folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
3. look for the upper and lower filter and right click then delete. after removing those restart your compter

if this doesnt fix the issue you might consider replacing your DVD roam.

hope it helps

I was trying to restore my c disk parytition and the power failed. The boot reccord is missing. How to recover?

Since you were trying to "restore", just restart the "restore" process (by booting either from the built-in Lenovo restore-repair-recovery partition, or from CD/DVD) and it will recreate a valid boot-record.
