So I just fresh installed Windows Professional x64 on my Vaio laptop, got an extra gb of ram so I wanted to take advantage of all 4 gbs.
I got everything running smoothly, Sony even has all the Windows 7 x64 drivers, however I am having problems getting my webcam to work properly.
At first I wasn't sure if it was a hardware connection problem, but in the Device manager I have something called a USB Video Device under Imaging devices, I thought maybe this was there by default so I uninstalled it. After uninstalling, I could not find any devices that were unrecognized with the yellow warning sign.
The Sony site does not have a Windows 7 x64 driver for the webcam, but I tried the vista home premium driver, but it still didn't work.
I did a restart, and oddly enough a new piece of hardware was detected and was being installed, and lo and behold, it was the USB Video Device.
I have no other devices attached, so am I correct to assume that it was the webcam that was detected? And is it also safe to assume that since it did that hardware install after I restarted that there are no hardware connectivity issues?
Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
*I also tried various programs such as Windows Live Messenger, Debut Video Capture, Arcsoft Webcam Companion (default software from Sony)... none of these detected a webcam
