    Hello, i have a HP pavilion dv2000 laptop With a built in webcam. Whenever i go on MSN to talk to my friends, i use webcam. I go downstairs to go do somthing leaving my webcam on, and my comp is turned off from updates, when i get back, i log back on and it says
    "We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again."

    If you reboot the computer, does everything work again?
