Well if you know how to get into your 'Hardware Device Manager' and see if this specific Web Cam has a yellow question mark over it's icon.
My thoughts is to go to Sony's web site and find your PC's driver download page and grab the Web Cam driver and reinstall it.

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:
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:
