Thanks so much for your help and quick responses. My display adaptor is not what you have mentioned. It is Radeon but AMD not ATI. But I still experience the problem where my video call does not work.
Can any of you still experiencing problems with camera generate logs as described here in Windows 8 section and attach it to the forum:
It's the: AMD Radeon HD 7650M. The laptop is Sony Vaio E Series
Maybe some of the solutions proposed here will help you too:
