In a view day's they will place a driver on their website to solve this problem. I think it's very strange that they launch this notebook by knowing about this defect, so i hope they solve it soon!

Dear problem solvers,
Thank you for your past advice.
I restored my computer to an earlier time since everything was a mess.
1) Attached camera;
2) Open sony camera utility program;
3) While the features, such as clicking to take pictures, etc.
works, the software, the camera can not see, therefore it is a
4) I can take pictures, but the screen is white and does not see
5) It appears the camera itself is not recognized.
6) Please note that this camera was for XP, etc.; Vista was
not on the market yet. Thus, while the software has been
updated from the 1.1 version to the 2.1 verson, and the
features of the camera work, it cannot see me.
Any thoughts. Thanks

Remove the camera from the usb port, restart the pc and reconnect the cam to see if found new hardware pop up shows and installs using the driver you have previously installed. Check that the cam works with it's own software and then update rom MSN to windows live if taht is what you are still using, then go into preferences and settings and make sure others can see you have a web cam and ensure that the cam is found by Windows live and uses it as default. The problem you may be having when you say it is being used by other software may be that you have the cam software running at the same time and checking online at Sony for updates at the same time as MSN is going online, there is no need to run the cam software as MSN will automatically look for an installed camera

SOURCE: problem with my webcamera
See section C. Windows Live
Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
