    help?! isight not working. can't reset PRAM
    Hello,

    I have an iMac. I recently noticed that my built in isight was not working when I tried to do a skype chat with a friend. After checking the USB and seeing that it was not recognized and reading online what I should do, I figured out that I need to reset the PRAM. I was using a usb keyboard so I had to get out my original wireless one. When I tried to connect it, I realized that the bluetooth was "not available". So I went into system preferences to try and fix it, but found that the bluetooth option was not even on the hardware panel. I looked online to see how I could fix this and most of the answers said to reset the PRAM. How do I reset the PRAM without the keyboard shortcuts??!! Is this something I can fix myself or am I going to have to call the apple store?

    You reset the PRAM from a wired keyboard not wireless. Follow the Apple instructions given in this article. LINK

    If your keyboard is not an Apple keyboard, instead of "command" use the Windows key and instead of "option" use the Alt key.
