110 : computer cam

Tonight I figured out how to use the camera that's built in to my work laptop. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to download Skype (can't install it on my c: drive, seems I'm not an administrator. Humpf.) so I can use the webcam capabilities. Greg? Michael? Any ideas??



  1. love it! still having a hard time understanding rounded corners..i'm seriously stupid
    *word verification: chilin

  2. Start Button -> Settings -> Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Select your login account -> Properties Button -> Group Membership tab -> Other: select "Administrators". Then hit every OK button to close each of the panels.

    This will make your user an administrator. These instructions are for XP, they may be slightly different for Vista. If you cant figure it out, google search for "become administrator vista" or something like that, it should give you step by step instructions.

    Once you are an Administrator, go try to install skype.

    Good luck!

  3. Ok, Greg... can't even get to the tab - it's password protected. Do you think I can install Skype on an external hard drive? I'm going to try it...
