I have a brand new laptop and everytime I try and activate the webcam nothing shows up and when I use ArcSoft compansion I get 'webcam not found. the webcam is either being used by another application or not connected'
I have seen that a lot of people have experienced this issue with other laptops and found a solution - I on the other hand cant seem to fix it, there are no drivers listed for my model with regard to the webcam.
my vaio model is : VPCSE1C5E
I have checked in device manger and under Imaging devices a 'UVC Device' is listed which I imagine is the webcam since it cannot be anything else!
I have tried to identify the manufacturer to try and update it manually but have not been successful.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, since its not what you would expect with a new laptop!
Hopefully a solution can be found since I dont fancy doing a recovery only to find the problem persists, howwever I guess that will be the next step following no obvious solitions.
