You need to enable the webcam by pressing Fn+Esc or Fn+F10 key combination. Also see if you can find the latest version of drivers on the lenovo support website for Windows 7 or at least Windows Vista. If it still doesnt get detected at least in device manager, try flashing the system BIOS to the latest version available on lenovo support website.

Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Generally if you go to your Internet Network manager or right click on the bars or if that is missing then you may have to make sure that all information and icon are checked for showing on your desktop or in the tray. Select the options to show at desktop tray that will show at the right hand lower side of the system tray.
Also because you may be setup for locating Networks when you start up automatically. Then it may not show up because the software does not need to find any Networks because your logged on already. If you have Internet then you are logged in. If not you will have to go to the manager section of Network setup and configure your network again.........John

You have to run the application program to start the display. Look in the program list for the application program. Click Start/Programs and look for any reference to camera or webcam. Also look inside the manufacturer folders in the program list. Sometimes the webcam will be inside one of them. Some manufacturers use something like Entertainment Experience. If you see something like that click it and it will show the icons of all entertainment type media. Click the webcam or camera.

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go towww.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com"(without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When thesite opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says FindSoftware. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the whitesearch area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your resultslook for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it andinstall it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs itwould like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additionswhatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use,and you will always know where your webcam software is.

When Vista tells you that you need to reactivate the OS, it will give you the opportunity to do it now. You should not need to reload windows to reactivate it. All you need is a valid key (which should be on the CD or the bottom of the Laptop).

Alternatively, if you cannot connect to the internet, you can call Microsoft to activate the product.
