I have just reinstalled Windows 7 64bit on a Sony Vaio VPC EB101E0E but the owner has told me the webcam isn't available. There are no evidence of any software missing in Device Manager and I can't find any reference to webcam drivers on the Sony Vaio support site here..

Am I just not seeing this driver on this page or should it be included as part of some other driver?

 

I don't have the laptop at present but I am wondering if one of the webcam cables has worked loose.

Hi alfarom :welcome: to BC community.

If you see or the webcam is recognize after expanding the imaging device in device manager, then most likely it's still working. Try launching the software Vaio utility or webcam software if the webcam lits up. All drivers must have been installed when you already use the factory image restore on the hidden partition which is usually the case. The Sony drivers online support is only secondary as the Vaio Update (with internet connection) which is the same with Windows Update keeps your computer notified for any new versions available.

That's what I'm trying to find. There doesn't seem to be any specific webcam software available on the Sony website and there is no sign of the webcam in device manager. This was a Windows reinstallation using a generic Windows disk which along with Windows update found all the drivers according to the Device Manager.

I'm not sure by the word 'generic' disk. The software package or OEM recovery disc/partition for the particular laptop would contain all the drivers needed. Unless the previous user has confirm that its a hardware problem for the webcam that needs to be fix or replace would be another issue.
