How to use my built-in web camera for my medion laptop

I just recently got a slightly used laptop from my wife's aunt and it is a newer medion laptop that has Windows Vista on it. It has built into it a web camera on top of the computer. My problem is that I have tried to use it when I am in Yahoo messenger or msn messenger and my friends say that all they see is white. I have tried to go find somewhere in Help and Support a topic that would help me get my web camera working again but couldn't find anything at all. So can you help me?

Hold down the Fn button and press the button with a camera symbol (its F9 on mine) at the same time.

The camera symbol at the bottom right of the screen should show a white circle rather than a red cross. this means it is switched on.

it bugged me for weeks!!

Go to The windows logo on the bottom left corner then click "Computer" and there it has a list of everything your computer has like hard drive, and that sort of stuff. You will also see a web cam thing. Also, do you want to use it on Yahoo, MSN, Skype, etc.?

Web cam troubles

To simply use a web cam, no special software is required other than its driver. It becomes an input device on your computer. Many of the programs already on your computer can make use of the camera -- at least to capture still photos.

However, the ability to do tricks and other special things does require special software. It is probable that you camera came with software to do just what you describe already on its installation CD. You simply have to install it.

I hope this helps.

How do I fit wireless card into medion mim2120 laptop?

I assume you mean "wi-fi" wireless access. The easy solution if wireless networking wasn't built in is to use a USB wireless adapter that simply plugs in to any USB connector on the laptop. These adaptors are available at retailers where you can buy computers as well as from many online sources. The adapter will come with any software and installation instructions you need.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it has been what you needed, and thanks for asking here!

Camera disappears from Acer Aspire 5630 notebook

Hi! Your built in camera is just like ordinary camera that you plug into usb ports available. The only difference is that your built in cam is directly plugged into a dedicated usb slot in the motherboard. Most of the times the cable of the camera passes thru the hinges of the LCD which is prone to damamge due to opening and closing motion you do on your LCD or Laptop cover.

What could have happened was that the tiny cables that connects your cam to the board is now slightly aor if not severely damaged. unless you are a novice, I suggest you really have to bring it in for repair before it causes more harm to your laptop.
