Have you tried reinstalling the drivers?
What software are you using to test it?

Re: Drivers for Sony VAIO VGN-cs11s webcam

First, thanks for the prompt reply.

I have tried a lot of drivers that I found on sites supporting sony asia and
us. The camera is a Ricoh R5U875, to test: can I go from resources computer and I get the message Error video preview.

I cannot test it with skype

with msn messenger: when I test the webcam sees and does.
however, should not be called.
And the microphone does not work.


that depends on the sound drivers in some way?

even those are updated Realtek


HELP!

Re: Drivers for Sony VAIO VGN-cs11s webcam

think definitely a driver problem .... however in theory Windows should already contain the drivers for this webcam, and then try to uninstall everything ( if necessary by Device Manager) and reboot.
If all goes well when you restart Windows should install the driver by default.

For the wireless test to go to Device Manager> Properties of your wireless> card "Advanced."
At this point you should see the list with all the advanced properties: trying to set the transmit power to set maximum or minimum energy savings of the card.

Hi,

Try the following steps :

1) Uninstall the webcam driver installation applications (if any)

2) Uninstall the webcam from Device Manager (right click on device> Uninstall)

3) Restart your computer

Re: Drivers for Sony VAIO VGN-cs11s webcam

I have your same problem
and not only that...

please check if you have the same other problems:

- cd/dvd drive disappears sometimes , after long time been working. If I reboot I can see it again

- Restore previous configuration : no matter the way I set it, any time I reboot, I find it disabled.

I tried everything on the web. I would prefer not to format all
I have just received a suggestion from skype support team. I'll let you know if it works

Re: Drivers for Sony VAIO VGN-cs11s webcam

i solved one of the problems

I uninstalled a software made by Samsung , to connect mobile to pc, by using Revo Uninstaller . During the uninstall procedure I saw for a moment a Revo notes saying that "USB key Error (or something like that) was removed from autostart".

I still have the problem with skype,
with System Configuration Restore
and I realized a new one: audio : when set on "mute", sometimes it goes back to "no mute" .. with no apparent reason..
