Hi exilegod, Try this:

Uninstall the currently installed Skype version and install the 6.14.0.104 version.

http://download.skype.com/msi/SkypeSetup_6.14.0.104.msi
You should also make sure that the automatic updates are for now turned off.

You should be able to add the device in Devices and printers via Control Panel.

If your system cannot recognize your webcam device, and you have the correct drivers installed, then there is something wrong with the camera and its connection.
In this case, return the unit for service and repair.
