    Ive had my laptop for about 6 months. My integrated webcam was working fine with the cyperlink youcam software until about a month ago. I have uninstalled the youcam software and reinstalled, uninstalled and reinstalled skype but nothing works. No webcam is not listed under devices as if it is not there. Please help, thanks.

    Go to your laptop's manufacturers website. (e.g. Packard Bell, HP, Dell)
    Go to support and select your model. (which is probably written somewhere on the laptop)
    Then download the sound drivers
