Most likely it is a driver problem. I would go to the laptop manufactures website to see if they have an updated driver for Windows 7. Since Windows 7 is so new they may not have one. Installing Vista as a virtual machine (with software like VMware Workstation) on your new Windows 7 operating system. This may be the only work around until a Windows 7 driver is put out for your system.

To see if you are having driver problems, go to device manager by holding the windows key and pressing "R" which opens up a Run window then type in devmgmt.msc then click "OK" (or press enter) which will open up the Device Manager window. Your webcam will most likely be under Imaging devices and you may notice that it has an exclamation point on it. If you double click on the webcam name in device manager a properties windows for the Webcam will open up and under Device Status it will tell you if the device is working correctly. If it isn't it probably just needs an updated driver for Windows 7.

Motion eye doesn't work on Windows 7 Sony Vaio VGN-FZ220U


Your original Sony customised version of Windows included some dedicated webcam software plus webcam drivers. It is probable that you need both the software and the drivers from the Sony support website. The question is will the software work without you having a Sony customised version of Windows. Usually, it will work so try downloading and installing them. Check here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFZ220U&upd_id=3092&os_group_id=10

And here. Study the page carefully to make sure you've chosen the correct operating system and that you have expanded the view by clicking "Open File List", etc.
