    I couldn't find it on the search, so forgive me if it's been discussed before.

    How do I get Vista (with Bootcamp) to recognize an external moniter (connected via mini-DVI) on a Macbook?

    And while I have a thread on this question, might as well ask what how one can install the iSight driver manually when the device itself doesn't display in the device manager (nothing under imaging devices) I know it can work, it worked the first time I installed Vista (I had to reinstall it).

    Regards,

    you will need to extract the driver package and install the isight driver manually.

    As for the external monitor, you should be able to just enable it in display properties once the monitor has be plugged in and switched on.
