Skype can't detect my webcam - Laptop model sony vaio vgn-ns140e - have been using it without problem for more than two years. Imaging device is missing in device manager. Please help.


Hi,

If the imaging device is missing in the device manager, it is generally considered to be an hardware related issue. But, there are chances even in this situation the camera has worked after performing some troubleshooting steps:

Try opening the preinstalled ArcSoft WebCam Companion Software in the computer and check if there also you are getting the message, " Camera device not found".

If so then the issue may be resolved by reinstalling the Camera driver. In your case the computer uses inbox driver shipped with the OS. But, as it is Sony try reinstall the original ArcSoft WebCam Companion® Software from the esupport website.

If that also doesn't work, download and install the Camera driver:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNNS140ES&upd_id=4257&os_id=7

While installing the above driver, the computer may prompt an error this update is not for your computer model.

In that case, extract the setup file of the above driver using the Universal Extractor and then run teh setup, this usually works!!!!.

Download the Universal Extractor from the link below:

How do i set up my webcam built in my laptop its motion eye?


Hi remopuccio,

You can use the Motion Eye Camera using the "WebCam Companion 2" Software installed in the Computer. To locate the Application, please click "Start", "All Programs", ArcSoft WebCam Companion 2" and "WebCam Companion 2".

If the Camera is not working with the WebCam Companion 2 Software, you may need to re-install the Camera Applications and the Drivers in the Computer to fix the issue.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

Please post back if you require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Might be the webcam is not supported by Windows 7 (yet). If it is, there should be a driver for it on the Sony website.
You can try using a driver finder program to locate a compatible driver.
