Windows 7: Webcam not working!

Webcam not working!

I had used Windows Vista previously (hated the thing) so finally I switched over to Windows 7. It's great. But now my webcam has stopped working. I have a Sony Vaio computer Model PCG-394L and the specification (idk what to call it >.>) is VGN-FZ20E. Also, the memory card slots have stopped working as well. I tried to insert my Sony memory card from my camera but nothing happened. I had to use the cord to get my pictures onto the computer. Please help!

Is this a laptop? If so is the webcam built in?

I see it's a laptop. The webcam driver is the second one in the list. click the plus sign and it's the second one in the drop down menu.

As for the card reader...are they just not showing up or they just don't physically work. You have tried inserting an sd card to check.

Yes, I've put in the memory card from my Sony Camera and nothing happened. Yet when I used the USB cord, it worked fine o.O

Also, I downloaded that, but the install said it only works on Windows Vista.

Did you run the windows 7 upgrade advisor to see what you might need to do before the upgrade.

Just save it to your desktop, then follow the instructions in this tutorial to set it to install in Compatibility Mode for Vista.

I tried, didn't work. Tried again, but the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" check box is checked, but I can't change it. It went gray like a menu does when your not supposed to/can't change it.
