    I have followed this:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1744189

    And:
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/28812...-detect-webcam

    Installed "cheese"

    Did many things but the cam is not working.

    All what I managed to do so far is I can see the "green" LED next to the cam is working but there is black screen whenever I open cheese. Nothing at all.

    Any idea?
    This is my 28th converted machine and the owner of this machine has little bit of technical knowledge that she said her machine is working fine and fast except the overheating and the webcam. Well, when I opened the machine on Windows 7, it was super slow and full of auto-startup program and lots of rubbish.

    I managed to fix the overheating - so far nothing - with air blower.
    However, I couldn't do much for the webcam.

    I do want to impress the user/owner of the laptop not only with the speed of Lubuntu but with her cam working as well so I apprecaite if you could help me

    Thank you!

    I don't know if it is already covered in the posts you mentioned.

    Well done with the 'convert Windows to Buntu' project!

    IIRC (If I Remember Correctly), I think I have seen that and it didn't help.

    Now, while this may be off-topic but the laptop, as per the user, has the overheating issue back again. When it was here, it was fine. I don't know what she did and he laptop is overheating again. I told her to allow some kind of air ventilation and when it was here, I used an air-blower to clean it - it was fine.

    Yes. The laptop is indeed old. And, it seems the driver for the camera is no longer supported, maybe?
    I have had hard time. All what I managed to reach is the LED On with blackscreen. In short, the cam didn't work.

    Well done with the 'convert Windows to Buntu' project!
    Thank you
    This is part of StartUbuntu Project but the real-life part of it


    Edit:
    I will mark this thread as solved as the owner of the machine took it and didn't complain again about the webcam.
