Nothing to install, you should have a utility that will let you test the camera. But video capture devices all look the same to the system, including TV cards, etc...so make sure the camera is selected as the default device for video input.

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.

How do i use the camera on the laptop


Ok, this is how it is on most brands. Click on Start > All Programs..Look for Sony Webcam folder, it will contain a link to the webcam. Click on it and the camera will turn on.
You can also video chat with someone on MSN or Yahoo or Google chat. When you click on video chat, the webcam automatically turns on.

How do you use a built-in webcame on a sony laptop? how to access it?


Sony Vaio PCG-K35 laptop doesn't have an integrated video camera., so if your coomputer has an integrated web camrera must be talking about a different Vaio laptop model.
The laptop with an integrated video camera will have basic software to use it .
For instance, my VAIO VGN-FW21M came with ArcSoft Web Companion 2, which I can acces from the Programs menu (START/PROGRAMS).
Of course, the camera will also work with other programs that use a video camera (Skype, etc).
Check your laptop manual (you must have a manual file in your computer) for further details or post your correct laptop model so that we can help you more.
