Was helping out my cousin in Florida with Skype, when the webcam on my pretty-new netbook crapped out with a 'USB device not found' error.
Unable to reinstall drivers - it appears to be a known hardware problem, that means the netbook needs to be returned for servicing.
I don't think so, unless they have a walk-in facility in Portland, since we are heading off on vacation in 6 days.
Grrrr. It was working fine until it stopped working.
UPDATE: an hour later
After reading a bunch of posts on various sites about this problem, I found one guy that said to simply press your thumbs firmly on either side of the camera. That did it! No driver reinstall was necessary.
Full speed ahead!
