Re: PC Laptop and QuickCam...

Last week I asked a question regarding the use of a Connectix QuickCam
and my Gateway Laptop... when I tried plugging the camera into the
numeric keypad port, the PC gave me that wonderful "KEYBOARD FAILURE
Press F1 to Continue" message.

I had several helpful reponses that led me to a solution: I plugged in a
keyboard with the QuickCam, and it worked beautifully. If I had a
numeric keypad instead, that would have worked as well, no doubt. Thanks
to all who offered suggestions and observations.
