Lenovo S10, webcam not working with Windows Live Messenger

I have a Lenovo S10 with a webcam, and i want to use it for video chats with some friends of mine. However Windows Live Messenger seems to think i haven't a webcam installed even when i do. I've checked Devices and Printers and it shows up there, so it's not that the machine doesn't see the camera. I don't have any other software on hand to test the camera at the moment but i could get some if neccessary. OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. How can i get the webcam working with WLM?

"IIRC on the Lenovo S10 Fn + ESC is the key combo to toggle the webcam on/off.

note: the Fn key may require some 'hotkey' driver from Lenovo."
