my sony vaio notebook has a built in motion eye camera. it is meant to automatically turn on but it doesn't connect automatically. it only connects when i half closed my lid. how do i make it stay connected when i open my lid 90 degrees or more?

Sounds like a broken wire or loose connection problem with the cable. I've never looked inside a laptop but presume there is one or more ribon cables inside the lid hinge mechanism and such cables would connect to headers in the base and lid. Maybe they're hardwired at one end. It may be possible to replace the cable as long as it isn't hardwired. This is one problem I'd take to a professional.
