    The webcam is ok if i connect to other laptop or PC. Only at my laptop if i try to connect it did not take any action. There is a sound. (plug in sound) but nothing appeared. Do i need to install any software for that. My main purpose using the webcam is for Skype calls.

If you have a plug and play OS it should have detected the web cam then asked for drivers. try connecting the cam to other PC and lap top they detect the cam it may be a hardware problem if not the web cam maybe defective.

I have a presario c700. after installing windows 7, the web cam is not detectable. Why is that?


Because most of the companies have not yet released the drivers for win7. Anyways here is a driver with compatibility mode with your existing web cam possibly a bit efficiency of cam may decrease. Update the driver when its officially released.
