HP Pavilion Webcam not working!

My webcam won't work! I have Windows Vista with a pre-installed HP Pavilion webcam, and it won't work. Someone please help me troubleshoot!

Also, you can use the Skype client program window at anytime and do:

 

Hellp -> Call Quality Guide -> Sound Check Wizard

 

Note: The Sound Check Wizard also supports Video as well.


A new version has just been released September 1, 2011:


Please install over what you have using this and when prompted, please choose open or run: http://download.skype.com/SkypeSetup.exe

 

This new version is 5.5.0.115 to check what version you have, using the main Skype client window please do:
