Hi On my sony labtop the built in Motion Eye webcam does not work with messenger. I have tried to disable/ enable in device manager as for older models this worked but no luck now. When I try start the webcam with messenger all i get is a black screen. Drivers for the webcam seem correctly installed. Im using win vista ultimate. Any ideas on this would help thanks

Are you able to get your Webcam image to show on your desktop with the included software, and not Messenger?
