Thinkpad E520 - Webcam Issues

I've bought a E520 over the last few days and have been experiencing intermittantly a problem with my webcam.

When on Live Messenger or Skype I occasionally get a line reaching from the top of the webcam image to the bottom.

Is this a hardware fault or a software fault?


Kind Regards,
