    Windows Live - No webcam detected and no sound

    Trying to chat to my sister and kids who are abroad. Installed Windows 7 a couple of days ago on this laptop (Sony Vaio) and webcam not detected (motion eye) and no sound from my end on Windows Live. I can see and hear her and kids.

    All was working fine before with Vista and before the upgrade.

    How do I sort this?

    Um try this..
    1. Run MSN Messenger
    2. Run Webcam Settings (it should crash)
    3. go to Manage/Computer Management/Device Manager
    4. Disable/enable your camera (under imaging device)
    5. run MSN Messenger,it works great.

    tools/audio and video set up/next/select 'disable' in drop down menu.

    If this doesn't work:

    Try a video call. When it doesn't work just unplug and re-insert any usb device like a usb mouse, or a memory stick. It might just come back. This works when people have trouble with Dell Video Chat.

    Failing that, try installing ]manycam

    This cured my non-working cam on another online cam site.
