My Sony Vaio laptop webcam is not working – what can I do to resolve this? Are there any troubleshooting tips?
After looking high and low with the same problem the answer that I found online was: shutdown your vaio all the way (not restart). When shutdown, unplug the power cord, then plug the power cord back in, start the computer and all should be well. No idea why this works, but thankfully some good soul posted it elsewhere!
Hello, has the webcam work before? Has there been any driver updates recently? If the webcam worked before and now it does not, it could be because there was an automatic driver download that change something. It could also be that there is something wrong with the hardware itself. Have you tried rolling back the driver in device manager? Have you tried updating the driver manually?
