Question about MSI Wind U100-423ES Notebook
Web cameras won't turn on until a program accesses them. Most laptops with a built in web cam come with software to take pictures and video.
Try clicking on the windows icon (start menu) and typing "cam" into the search bar. This should bring up the web camera application to test and make sure it is working. You could also use an application like skype or a website that allows live camera uploads like youtube (account required).
If this doesn't work, make sure there is a driver properly installed and the hardware is working in device manager (control panel > system & security > device manager tab).
Please leave feedback if this was helpful.
