    I have a Vaio FE41M laptop on which Skype worked ok for a while. But now, while I get sound two ways, I only get picture only from the caller. They cannot see me, despite my clicking the "video on" button. Skype video test actually confirms that everything is ok--it;s not!

Can you access the webcam using the utility (hp webcam not SKype)? Sometimes Skype loses sync with devices. double-check your Skype version too.

How do i use my built in webcam


Step 1:
An example of a device that has come a long way is the webcam. Originally, these devices were highly priced, slow and complicated to operate, but today webcams are easy to use, efficient and inexpensive. In some models, laptops even have a webcam built in. If you want to use a webcam to chat with family or friends, you don't have to be technically savvy. By following several simple steps, you'll be on your way to having fun with your webcam.

Plug your webcam's USB cable into a USB port and turn on your computer. Once the computer's operating system finds the camera, it will ask you if you want to install the driver. Click on "Yes" or "Install" and insert the installation disc that came with your camera when prompted. Wait for your webcam's software to finish installing. Access your webcam's settings once it's installed. Click on its icon on your desktop or access it through where it was installed in your computer. Adjust your webcam's settings by customizing the camera's resolution, speaker and microphone to your liking. This process will vary depending on your webcam, but usually you can access these settings through the "settings" menu. Other functions include being able to take still photos, recording "motion pictures" as well as doing audio captures. These settings will be displayed by obvious icons on the webcam's software menu. Features will vary depending on the type of webcam. Test the built-in microphone or use an external headphone set so you can also talk to other people via webcam. To test the microphone, simply run a "sound test." This can be accessed under the "settings" menu in the "sounds" section. Open a free account with Yahoo! Messenger, Skype, Windows Live or ICQ by going to their websites and installing the software. For instance, if you want to install Yahoo! Messenger, simply go to Yahoo.com and click on the "Messenger" link on the left side of the screen next to the "smiley face" icon, and install the software by clicking on the "Download Now" tab and following the instructions. Invite other friends to your chat. Voice over IP software services such as Yahoo! Messenger, Skype and Windows Live have integrated features that allow you to converse with other people while seeing each other through the webcam. Invite friends by opening the chat software you are using and clicking on the "add new contact" or "add" option and typing the person's email or User ID in the blank box. Wait for the other person to accept your invitation. Once you see the person listed under your contacts, right-click and select the "video call" or "video chat" option. This will vary depending on the software you are using, but the process is similar regardless of the software you decide to use.
Use a Built-In Webcam b> Open Yahoo Messenger and select "My Webcam" from the "Messenger" menu. This will bring up a window showing what your webcam sees. To invite one of your contacts to view your webcam, right-click on them in your contacts list and choose "Invite to View My Webcam" from the "More Actions" area of the pop-up menu. Your contact will receive an invitation to view your webcam. Open Skype and select a contact you'd like to call. Skype will automatically detect that you have a webcam attached to your computer and give you the option to place either a voice-only or a video call to the contact. Choose "Video call" and your contact will be able to see and hear you. Open Picasa and select the webcam icon to the right of the "Import" button. A window displaying a view from your webcam will pop up. Click the "Record" button to begin recording a video or the camera icon to take a snapshot.

You do not say if the webcam has a built in mic or what mic you intend to use for chatting - You need to set one as 'Default' especially if you have a laptop with a built in mic as well
XP
Plug in your webcam
Control Panel (Classic View)
Open 'Sounds and Audio Devices' folder and click on the Audio tab - make your webcam mic the default device in the 'Sound recording window'
Open 'Volume' below the window to ensure the mic is not muted
Click 'Apply' and 'OK'
Restart your computer
Configure the webcam to your chat program

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.

Try to reinstall the webcam drivers from www.hp.com (drivers). This possibly should fix the problem. Also, try updating the bios (from the same link).
