is it the one where the cam spins on the top of the lid when its opened?
My mates got one on his, it works automatically when he uses msn messenger
what model laptop is it Daz?

Have to get model number and come back,not spin one fixed intergrated when you open lid.She doesnt use messenger,but recently set up Skype which is when I noticed it didn't work.

I have a short cut to HP Webcam on my desktop and I think it was already there when I got the laptop. Anyway, you might find that the webcam works through a program called "Quickplay"

Have you tried configuring video through Skype's Tools>Options?

I use Windows Live Messenger (I think that's the successor to MSN Messenger — will someone kindly correct me if I'm wrong?). It has a Webcam Settings dialog in the Tools menu.
