    problem with my vaio is that recently it has started to act crazy with this sound. it comes and goes... for instance, when i watch a video on youtube, when the video is done, sometimes the sound will go completely out and i'll have to close the lid of the laptop and open it again to get the sound back (and it does the same thing). this happens sometimes. sometimes i turn the computer on and there is no sound so i do the closing the lid thing again.

I have a Sony VAIO model VGN CR420E. After a serious virus infection my repair people emoved Vista and installed Windows 7. I then installed Skype and a Logitech C260 webcam. When I start Skype, my video...


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.

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.

Vaio internal mic


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype. Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud

Web Cam


It sounds like a loose connection between the camera and the computer inside the case.

The Video capture Utility says so.

And if you have no picture it comes out black.
