    Which OS are you using? Have you checked in the Device Manager to see if the cam is disabled? What application was using the cam? If you start the application, it may start the cam for you. You mihgt also try installing Skype to see if it will find the cam. Try these suggestions and then let me know how you are doing. ~ Spoem
