I have the same problem... using the webcam manager doesn't fix the problem. I noticed on another forum that someone suggested plugging in a USB device to 'kick start' the webcam. I tried that, but it didn't work for me. I had also tried uninstalling the driver, and then reinstalling it. That didn't work. And disabling the camera, then re-enabling it, that didn't work either.

I give up.
