Re: Laptop built-in camera and microphone not working

the basic problem because of which it is happening can be loss of driver as you had formatted the machine it may happen that driver to support web cam and microphone would have been erased and not install properly. you need to reinstall the drivers to make it functional, drivers can be available for download on official Sony website which you can easily get it, just you have to provide the model, series and select the operating system which is running on your laptop.

To solve the problem related to the web cam not detecting you can install web cam drivers in Compatibility mode:
  1. Search for the executable file(.exe file) which id used for the driver installation program.
  2. Right-click the file, and then select the Properties.
  3. Go to Package Name Properties dialog box and select Compatibility mode tab.
  4. click on program to run on compatible mode.
  5. select and double-click on the executable file for installation program.

make sure that you have install both the drives needed for built-in camera and microphone to work in your laptop. as you have formatted the machine you might have not done the installation properly which is leading the problem of your device not working. so ensure you install it properly with legal mother board CD which will solve both your problems.
