I have a sony vaio with built in web cam and windows 7 but i cant use the web cam . why is that?


Are you using the Sony Webcam companion? If not ou can download the application from Sony Vaio website. ( Sony Web Cam Companion ). If you are trying to use skype or any other video messaging software: Try to check if there are other video chat application running in the background of your computer. Open the system configuration utility (Windows key + R > msconfig ) then go to the Startup Tab. Uncheck all application that is related to video chat and leave the preferred video chat software active (checked). Restart the computer and viola! You can now use your webcam for video chat.

Webcamera doesn't work


1. Check if Imaging Devices is listed in device manager.
2. Uninstall and reinstall the webcam companion software.

Use the Arcsoft Webcam Companion Software to use the camera to capture videos and pics. Click on start and type Webcam Companion in the search bar and press the enter key.
This will open the webcam companion software, then click on the capture option to use the camera. If you want to use the camera with any messaging software such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger etc, it is required to close the Webcam Companion Software or any other web messenger software.

The camera can be used with a single application at one time.

The WebCam Companion Software contains teh drivers for the camera.

Then, ensure to first singout from any third party messenger software such as Skype/Yahoo messenger and exit the messenger. Ensure the messenger is not running in the background and you have successfully quit and exit the software after logout.
After that, use the WebCam Companion Software to make the camera working.

Sounds like a possible driver issue.
Go to Sony's support site and download the latest drivers for your Camera, namely the WebCam Companion software to ensure you have the proper drivers for your integrated webcam.
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNCR420EP&SelectOS=44
A restart is usually needed after the installation.
Test the software to ensure you actually get proper video from the webcam after driver installation.
Test it out on Skype if all goes well.

Do not know how to turn the webcam on so I can use Skype


Hi,

In a VAIO there is no particular switch to turn ON the camera. Starting the computer automatically turns on the camera. To check if the camera is working properly, please open the ArcSoft Web Companion application that came with the computer. If the camera is working there, then the camera in the computer is perfect. You need to configure the Skype for video conferencing.

Below mentioned link has pictorial representation of the configuration of the Skype application with Camera in your VAIO.

HP Webcam Deluxe KQ246AA Not working correctly in XP


No solution, but I have precisely the same issue. I've reinstalled and removed ArcSoft many times, being careful to clean registries, etc but to no avail. The camera actually worked with Skype initially (plug and play), UNTIL I installed ArcSoft. So I think that ArcSoft "stepped" on a driver somewhere that I can't detect or repair. (I'm using "Driver Detective" but so far it hasn't helped) Will update if I find a fix.
