Default Webcam stopped working - 03-06-2009, 05:14 PM

I installed Windows 7 on my mini 9 (1GB/8GB/1.3mp Webcam) following the instructions from this forum. I went ahead and also installed drivers for the chipset, the media reader, and the touchpad. Then I installed Skype, which found my webcam, and I could verify it worked.
Later I also installed Office 2007 (onto a 4GB SDHC) - but I removed it again.
I also removed the (wrong) SD reader driver from the mini 12.
Now the webcam no longer works!
I installed Dell's rebranded Webcam Center, but it claims the drivers are not installed. I installed the ones from the mini 12. During the installation Win7 told me first they don't work, then it reported them as OK. The device center shows the webcam as functional - still, I can no longer use it in Skype, and the Webcam center claims there is no webcam.
Has anybody here a solution to this issue?
