I have a 1.5 year old HP Pavilion dv7 using Windows 7. Up until 3 days ago, the built in web cam worked 100% on Skype, and other functiions, but now Skype will not recognize it, nor does the CyberLink YouCam software. Any suggestions? Thanks, Pete

Thanks very much for your kind reply to me on the 5th re the webCam failure. I have been driving across country for the past 10 days, so haven'y had a chance to try your suggestions. Please excuse my tardy reply.
