    My iSight was disabled at work, but now I just use my macbook at home so I'm trying to get the iSight working again. I believe they physically disabled it by unplugging it from the motherboard. Can someone tell me where it plugs into the motherboard?

    Here's a picture of my motherboard:

    From what I can tell, it looks to me like you've got an early 2011 model. So, I believe step 13 HERE is what you're looking for. I'm pretty sure it's the cable by the fan nearest your optical drive, with the red and yellow on it. The red and yellow bit doesn't look familiar to me. Mine is just black. It's too small for me to see what it is, but my guess would be that it was modded by your company in some way.

    The cable felt loose so I made sure it was plugged in but I still have no webcam option on Skype so I think they did something else as well.

    Any ideas? Maybe they removed some required plugins...anyone know where to get those?
