I have looked in the forums, downloaded updated drivers, did a reboot of my system and my web cam will not start. Says please turn on camera. Okay, how? Please help.

Do you have the USB cable which came with the monitor? You HAVE to use that cable. It looks exactly the same as a printer USB cable, but the camera will not work if you switched that cable for a printer USB cable.(don't ask me why...)

First of all, deleted your old driver and unplugged your USB cable from the webcam. Then re-installed your updated driver. Then turn off your PC and re-plugged your USB cable from your webcam. After that, turn on your PC...it's will automatic detected new hardware and your webcam should function correctly.
Good lucks! Have a nice day!

According to you your problem is installation of your web cam software or driver. So first check the system requirement of the web cam. Because this cam model required dual core or higher version of processor. If your Laptop is not a Celeron model or it is a Dual core or higher model then Remove all components of the driver you have installed from control panel & c:\ program files.
Reboot the system
Reinstall the driver by autoplay or by open the CD .
If not installed you can try to install it by update driver wizard from device manager.
Before installing driver plugged in the web cam & make sure it detected to the system.
This may solve your problem.
