i'm also having the same problem with my ideapad y450..it really bothers me that i have a webcam but i can't use it..i certainly do hope that lenovo does something about it...not a very happy camper

 

i've tried fn+esc, installing the vista drivers, drivers from the win7 cd, drivers from the site...nothing

you haven't installed drivers for camera that's the reason.

press fn + esc to activate the camera ( otherwise you'll be prompted as there's no camera driver to install ) and install driver for it. ( windows 7 32 bit -  vista 32 bit - vista 64 bit )

deactivate your camera by pressing fn+esc, and activate it by pressing again.

un-install both camera drivers and easy capture application, restart your computer, first install camera driver and then install software.
