Hi I have Windows Vista Business and a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ19VN. I have an inbuilt webcam (motion eye). The webcam works - it automatically comes up when I do skype calls. My question is whether I can use the camera for video recordings that I do independently from skype and how to access my camera.

Removal of Icon from Vista Control panel by [email protected]
On my Vista system there is an icon for HP Scanjet Scanners. I do not have any HP scanner as I use the scan capability from my Samsung SCX4725 FN scanner. My question is how do I remove this icon from the Vista control panel. In the Windows System32 folder there are some files referencing this HP hardware. Any ideas and directions for removal appreciated.

hard disk making a strange clicking sound by dellbox
My external hard drive, Western Digital, is making a strange sound whenever I plug it to the computer. It goes like "click, click, click" and then it stops. It sounds like it tries to boot up but it couldn't. The drive doesn't show up in my computer but shows up in device manager. Is there any way that I can access the hard drive or get my files back? Thank you. -- dellbox

Recently upgraded to Windows Ultimate and want to use tape backup for selected data backup (20 GB per tape). Since Vista does not support SCSI Tape Backup, I did some more research and decided to install ntbackup. After installing, the backup software sees the tape drive and interacts with it, i.e. I can run the diagnostic tests and all steps are given a passing grade. However, when I try to...
