Try Windows Update.
Most of my drivers were their!
Just go to optional updates and see if theirs anything about a cam.
Good Luck!

Based upon the info given...I can't even find your netbook at Sony's website...can you post a link to the page on your netbook at their website?

I may not know italian but you don't have to be an expert to navigate those pages and realize that Sony has crippled you...

Basically Sony has this thing against upgrading computers...unless the laptop is a specific model, they won't support your upgrade (going as far as refusing to warranty it) and they won't make any drivers past your original OS...

Unfortunately for you...your laptop orignally had Windows XP on it and Sony only provides Windows XP drivers...

This leaves you with three options...
1. Return to XP to have your driver support back but no Windows 7
2. Attempt to install the XP driver for the device you are missing (install in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP Service Pack 2: Compatibility Mode)
3. Forget the piece of hardware and deal with it OR buy a USB equivalent (most things end up this way...like a USB camera)

This is why I will NEVER RECCOMENED SONY...they are so lazy and unwilling to support their hardware for upgrades...
