    I got a new laptop:

    http://www.msi-computer.ca/product_info.php?cPath=63_68&products_id=218

    And it has a built in webcam. The problem is...nothing acknoledges it. Things like MSN or YAHOO say there's no cam connected.

    The only problem I could think of is that this laptop was supposed to run on Vista, but I bought it with XP home. Could this be the problem?

    It could definately be a problem. But try searching for new hardware and see if anything registers. might be a driver issue.
    Also try going into control panel > system > device manager > and see if you have any yellow Question marks that might be a wrongly installed webcam or media device...
