Question about Sony VAIO PCG-TR3AP1 Notebook

2 Answers

Motion Eye camera is not seen in Device manager. I have Sony Vaio W netbook. Please help The exact model of PC is Sony Vaio VPCW115XW The camera was there when I bought the netbook. Than I have started to reinstall windows. I have installed Windows 7, and I have seen camera there, connected to USB hub (in device manager), and than it used to disappear. Later I have installed XP professional Camera did not show up at all. I have reinstalled the recovery version. I can not see camera even in recovery version. Reinstallation of the drivers does not help, it says "Camera hardware not found" or something like that.

    Is there any chance of some key combination enabling/disabling camera (like bluetooth/wireless)?

    Or maybe some low level utilities?

I just had similar problem when i upgraded my hannspree netbook to windows 7. I finally found a keyboard combination.
Fn +F6. this worked for me as the bios didn't have an option there either..

The bottom line if it doesn't show up even as unrecognized device. Check your Bios and Keyboard shortcuts.

Hello Fellow, It seems that your notebook is facing some hardware resource conflicts. As you have stated that re-installing drivers doesn?t works. Try to install Windows XP Service Pack3 on your notebook or upgrade your previous service pack to Service Pack3.If the problem is still unsolved you need to contact to Sony support center. http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl Do rate me, if I'm helpful, Regards.

    No, if it is not showing up even in device manager, then there is no chance to enable it, by any means. This seems to be some hardware conflict, and you will be guided well by Sony. Click Here

Sony VAIO VGN-CR320E Motion eye camera never


Hi,

First, you need to try re-installing the Camera Driver and Applications to fix the issue.

Click this link to download the Camera Driver for the Computer.

Please download the file to a folder in the Computer. Then, please open the folder where the file is download and double click on it to begin the installation. Please follow the onscreen instructions to continue the installation process. After installing the Driver, please restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect.

If the issue still persists, please try re-installing the Camera Application in the Computer.

You can download the Camera Application from this link

Please download and install the Camera Application in the Computer. Please make sure that you restart the Computer after each installation for the settings to take the effect. Re-installing the Camera Driver and Camera Application should fix it.

If this did not fix the issue, please open the Device Manager. (to open the Device Manager, press the Windows Logo + R Keys together, this will open the Run window, in the Run window, please type DEVMGMT.MSC and press the Enter Key. On the Device Manager window, please check if the "Imaging Devices" is listed. If listed, please try re-installing the Camera Application again. If the Imaging Devices category is missing even after re-installing the Driver, you may need to restore the computer to the factory defaults to check if it is hardware related.

Please post a reply when you are done with the above steps,

Best of luck...!!

Sony VAIO VGN-CR320E Motion eye camera never


Have a look in device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc
have a look under imaging systems click on the + sign and see if you have a Camera listed
Also on Sony they should have supplied an application for the camera maybe called ArcSoft WebCam Companion - see if you have that program folder - listed at all

Hi axal49,

I seem to understand your problem. I have a Sony VAIO laptop and I might know how.... do you have VAIO Recovery Center on your PC? If you do then go to recovery center and find Reinstall Programs or Drivers.

Sony vaio motion eye


Windows Vista is not the greatest at working on proprietary machines with drivers intended for XP. Can you get a driver from SONY for the motion eye that supports VISTA? I had Vista on my new machine (Dell) for all of 3 minutes before I uninstalled it and put a brand new copy of XP on. It's stable -- and works. Vista is squirrelly.
