    Hi guys,

    i just received my t61 and am loving it!

    only problem that i'm getting is when i use the integrated webcam for msn live, its very washed out/too much white. I have tried to adjust the settign using the msn webcam tool, and been heavily tweaking but with no avail.

    I'm wondering if anyone else has had a issue like this, or can recommend me some settings or webcam calibration tools.

    Also the webcam is a bit fuzzy, its not focused properly, can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    btw my screen is perfectly clear, no dead pixels, used this forum to tweak vista and its running like a charm!
    vista performance score of 3.4

    i'm getting on high performance a rating of 3:45h of battery life with t9300, integrated graphics 9cell bat (does that seem right?)

    cn_habs,

    Unfortunately, I have the same issue. The only workaround I've been able to discover is to adjust the camera settings using Yahoo! Messenger, which I'm not positive if it's the same as MSN's. Either way, the integrated camera is very light sensitive. What this means is that it will focus on the subject with the most light. Is there anything overly bright behind you? It really helps when you're in a well and evenly lit area, too.

    Yahoo! Messenger also has a sharpness adjustment that may help with the fuzziness.

    Here you go,
