That's unfortunate :/. If you're really courageous and adventurous, you could get a screw driver and dig into your computer. Since you have no warranty, you don't have anything to worry about... except breaking something that is :P. If you do, I would check the wiring first. If all the wires are good, then I would take a look inside the screen and see if the camera bit looks suspicious. Bad crimp, a burn, etc.

If you're not feeling courageous, at least you have your USB webcam.

ok um remove that external webcam...we want nothing but your internal cam pls

as you boot up, allegedly you press the function key and escape key

2) I assume you have no motherboard manual on this function stuff?

3) those images were fantastic and your bios is a shocker....sorry for doubting you

would you consider migrating to a new flash version or a different bios?

if you wanted to check for a flash update to your bios, there is more information required for models S10


there appears to be 7 models


IF interested in coreboot to replace that super great bios, it depends on your chipset and allegedly

yours is intel 945 and looks ok

but will it enable your webcam?
