Webcam is not Working (Windows 10, 8)

Question: Webcam is not Working (Windows 10, 8)

Since I updated to Windows 10, everything was working like peaches, but a couple weeks ago, I tried to use Skype, and the Webcam ceased to work, I believed it was a small problem, and ignored it. Afterwards, the camera failed again on a Google Hangout session

Preferred Solution: Webcam is not Working (Windows 10, 8)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Webcam is not Working (Windows 10, 8)

discovered the solution the other day. Go here: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03430151 and scroll down to the heading: Video does not display in your webcam software (such as YouCam, Skype, Messenger, etc.) Then, follow Step 3: Update or change the webcam driverWhat you're going to be doing is changing the camera driver to the, Microsoft USB Video Device driver. This solved the problem.

I've owned this laptop for quite a while and had been using Webcam Central to control the Integrated Webcam on my Alienware M17x R4.   I never had any issues using Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or even Windows 10 until my system updated on 8/20/2016 with a scheduled Windows 10 update.
After the windows 10 update my system restarted and the next time I went to use my webcam I noticed that I couldn't control the pan / zoom / or tilt or alter any of the settings in webcam central.  If I attempt to change anything it automatically changes back instantly.  For example of I move the slider to zoom, or attempt to change the pan, it auto goes back to where it was and will not allow me to change the settings.
I also notice that my mouse pointer flickers over the webcam central GUI, meaning, there seems to be some issue with the GUI after the windows 10 update, I assume is also whats causing the settings not to be changed.
I have tried uninstalling both the drivers and software and reinstalling to no avail, same problem is present after reinstallation of both drivers and the webcam central software.
Wondering if anyone else has run into this and whether there was some type of resolution.
I was able to get the pan / zoom / tilt working with 3rd party webcam software, however I would prefer to go back to using webcam central.

---------My laptop model is Inspiron 17R 5720 and Im having the exact same problem after the Microsoft Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607: August 31, 2016 - KB3176938, done Sep 4th. I was also already running Win10 and it didnt mess with Webcam Central - till yesterday when I gave the reboot necessary to install the update files.Pan/Zoom/Position Arrows show as available to be used but if you try to use then, nothing happens and back to full zoom. Only thing it allows me to do is to change to Face Tracking.I called Dell Suport Center and for about 2 hours I ran diagnostics and tried possible solutions with the tech assistant but he wasnt very helpfull at all. All diagnostics came back with positive/OK/passed results and they offered me a paid support to fix the problem. Not exactly a good solution, is it?It was clear though MS updates messed up with the webcam driver - I checked myself at Devices/Imaging there was an update for the driver done exactly when MS updates were done. Unfortunatelly, the rollback option wasnt available. For that matter, I decided to uninstall the whole Windows KB3176938 and CAPICOM (what ever that is) updates done using Control Panel/Updates but no-go.

Hi

my laptop specifcation here : ( [A300 - 1G5|http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/jsp/SUPPORTSECTION/discontinuedProductPage.do?service=EU&com.broadvis ion.session.new=Yes&PRODUCT_ID=1055589] ) for any needed details ..

The problem simply is, the webcam stopped working for some reason, an error messeage says "Webcam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer".

I noticed that whenever I put the computer in sleep mode I was getting on the icon tray a notification says "USB device unrecognized"... I wasnt aware what it was - thought it becasue of the USB mouse being plugged... but I think its related to the camera...

software is installed but camera is not working and cant enable it .. I did download the latest driver from toshiba site , but still not working ...


Currently my laptop runs Vista HP SP2 32-bit, Windows defender enabled, Windows Firewall Enabled, Windows UAC enabled, Kaspersky Ani-Virus 2009 Enabled. I only use Windows Live Messenger (which up to date I think , version : 14.0.8089.726) which i used camera with, I quite using face recognition long time ago and rarely use the webcam ... I didnt install or update any drivers and used to have the laptop running perfectly..

So what happened now ?!

Answer:Satellite A300-1G5: webcam stopped working - Webcam driver open fail

Hi

I have had a similar error message and could solve this by disabling the webcam software from startup.
In msconfig -> Start Up tab I have unchecked the Chicony webcam software.
This prevents it from automatic loading.
I don?t use MSN but Skype and the Chicony webcam software is always disabled (not executed) if Skype is running.

Maybe you should try this too.

Furthermore you could try this:
Go to device manager, mark the webcam (imaging devices ? USB video device) and deleted it from the device list.
Then reboot the notebook and wait until the webcam has been recognized again.

Then test it.

After looking through this forum, I have tried several 'solutions' but to no avail.

After trying to load the webcam i get the message: "Webcam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer"

I have tried updating the Driver software for the camera, and updated the BIOS.

This message still keeps coming up. Is it worth uninstalling the camera completely then attemtping to reinstall it?


Sorry if some of this doesnt make much sense, im not entirely "computer savvy"


I hope somebody can help,

Thanks,
Ben

Answer:Satellite A300-1MC: webcam not working - webcam driver open fail

> Is it worth uninstalling the camera completely then attemtping to reinstall it?
Of course!

You should firstly go to device manager and should uninstall the driver.
You should also remove the software from control panel -> Software

After that you should clean the OS and registry using CCleaner. It?s free tool? google?
Then reboot the notebook several times and install the webcam software again.

Cheers

Hello

Recently my built-in webcam on my hp pavillion dm4-2070us entertainment notebook pc laptop has stopped working. It is recognized under "device manager" however when i open it, it is not working and not capturing any visual image. It doesn't work with any programs that use webcams such as Skype, ooVoo, or facebook either. What should I do to fix it ? I have the Cyberlink Youcam. My operating system is windows 7 64-bit.

I have tried to uninstall & reinstall the webcam software as well as updating its software driver. But the problem still remains. In device manager, it is recognized as "usb video device."

Please help me ! I've been dealing with this problem for 2 weeks now & still can't fix it. Thank you in advance !

Recently my webcam has just stopped functioning. This laptop is brand new however and I just got it on the 14th.
I have no clue why it wont' work anymore. I checked under device manager and under Imaging devices its called "facap, FastAccess Video Capture".
I enabled it, for some reason it had become disabled, and it wouldn't work. And it seems no Driver updates are available. Also have tried reinstalling the driver but it didn't work. I then uninstalled the old driver and tried to install the driver and it failed. So I used Windows Restore Point feature thing. Now its just disabled.
Any ideas on how to fix it?

I found my solution!    Though... it kinda is a "Doh!" kinda thing.
Apparently FN+F9 will enable or disable the webcam!
It seems that I had done this inadvertently at some point and turned it off, and while messing around for a solution the other day, II tried the combo it turned back on the webcam!
Quite a powerful key combination I have to say if manually enabling the web cam and reinstalling the web cam driver don't do anything.

Good afternoon everybody, hope you had a great Christmas.

Unfortunately, one of the gifts I received this Christmas, a webcam (specificially, this webcam), refuses to work on my Windows XP Home computer.

The drivers appeared to install fine (although there was a warning about a missing streamci.dll, which I later put into my system32 folder), however when I try to view the webcam by going into My Computer > Webcam, it gives the following error message -

I realised that it may be a hardware problem, but the product works fine on a friend's Win XP Home laptop with similar specification. To make sure it was a fault with my computer in particular, I tried the webcam function of a conventional digital stills cam and the result was the same - worked fine on the laptop, but the same error occured on my computer. Consequently, I posted the problem here, suspecting it was related to my Win. XP installation as opposed to a hardware fault.

If anyone has any idea how I could go about trying to fix this problem, I would be hugely grateful. Is there any part of Windows I could reinstall or repair relating to its webcam support?

A massive thanks in advance to anyone who can give any help whatsoever.

PS: Service Pack 2 is installed on both systems.
 

Answer:Windows' webcam component not working(?)

First go to the device manager and check you’re USB for any flags. If there is a flag, remove the device that it is beside and restart the computer and have windows replace it. If there is no flag go into the BIOS and check and see if the USB port is enabled or disabled make sure that it is enabled.

Hello,

The integrated Webcam with my Dell Laptop Inspiron 7537 has stopped working after the windows 10 update. It is not mentioned in the device list under the device manager section. I have tried Dell troubleshooting but it says that the device and the driver were not detected. The driver is not available on the Dell support webpage under the drivers section.

Please help. I am highly fed up of not being able to Skype for business purposes.

Answer:Webcam not working after the windows 10 update

Hi shaivalshah50,
Good work on troubleshooting. If you have updated the BIOS, ran the diagnostics and still if you find webcam not detected then it should be faulty.
Also, I would suggest you to restore the system back to previous operating system to check if webcam works.

hi everyone...
i'm a newbie here, desperately need some help regarding to this issue
my laptop is ASUS A42F, I'm using windows 7 ultimate 64x

before i re-install windows 7 ultimate, built in camera was working properly. and now my webcam is nowhere to be found, oh and ASUS hotkey utility also not working properly after i re-install it.

i've been searching all over the web for the last 4 days
tried by uninstalling n installing the built-in camera driver but it's still not working.

i checked in device manager, imaging devices, properties in the general tab and it says something like this in the location info:

0000.001d.0000.001.001.000.000.000.000 and it says "this device is working properly"

out of curiosity i also tried another cam/ plug-in usb webcam (it's still work properly in my friend laptop) and the result still the same, nothing happened in my laptop. the location info also says something like i mention above.

it's like my webcam is lost somewhere in my laptop, I hv no idea why windows won't detect it?

I've finally found a way to resolve the inverted / vertically flipped / upside down webcam issue with the Chicony camera in the X220T and others when viewed with the Windows 10 Camera App.  FIrst, install the Windows 7 webcam driver for the X220T. This will create an error in the Windows 10 Camera App.  Then install the ThinkVantage Communications Utility. In the Windows Control Panel, click "Hardware and Sound", then "Lenovo - Web Conferencing". In the "Advanced Camera Settings", check "Flip" until the webcam image is the right way up.  Now, in Device Manager, go to "Imaging Devices", then right click on "Integrated Camera" and click "roll back driver". If this option is greyed out, click "Update Driver", "Browse my Computer", "Pick from a list", select "USB Video Device", then click next.  The webcam driver now in use should be the default one from Microsoft. However, if you go back to the Windows 10 Camera app, the webcam image is the right way up! Hooray! P.S. Considering the solution is so simple (probably due to some entry in the registry), I wonder why Lenovo hasn't already issued a permanent fix for this?

WEBCAM NOT WORKING. I have a Toshiba DX730 All-in-One desktop PC running Windows 10. Since I upgraded to Windows 10 my integrated webcam has not worked. I have unsuccessfully tried the following:-

1. Checked the BIOS to ensure the webcam is enabled - it is.

2. Uninstalled/installed the appropriate drivers from Toshiba Support numerous times, including after a clean boot.

3. Uninstalled the hardware from Device Manager numerous times. An interesting point here is that the webcam does not appear in Device Manager under Imaging Devices, but is shown under Other Devices as USB 2.0 Camera, next to which is the dreaded yellow exclamation mark. Right clicking this and selecting Properties always shows that no driver is installed. I've run Driver Update and pointed it to the appropriate folder, but Windows always fails to find the driver.

4. Uninstalled Skype, just in case it was causing a conflict.

5. Run the software in compatibility mode.

None of this has worked!! When I open the Camera app the following error message appears "Something went wrong. Make sure your camera is connected and not being used by another app". Skype cannot detect a webcam.

So recently my computer was re-installed with a fresh copy of windows 7, and not the packard bell windows 7 previously installed.

Everything works perfectly except my webcam, which doesn't seem to work at all or with any program.

I think this could be because I don't have the webcam driver installed as this driver wasn't included in this version of windows 7.

I have scoured the download section of the Packard bell website and there is no webcam driver listed with the other drivers for this computer.

I can't even find the driver after doing a google search :(

Answer:Why isn't my Webcam / camera working after the upgrade from Windows 7 to 10?

Regarding camera, check device manager. If there is exclamation or x mark there, you probably need to install a driver. Get the driver from the laptop website. You should be able to use windows 8 driver if 10 is not available.

Have you r-installed skype?

Does it do the same thing when booted in safe mode (F8)?

is the driver installed and working (in device manager)??

Please go to start>search>type device manager.
Are there any "unknown devices" with yellow triangles on them?
Is you driver there , listed, and working?

If your driver is missing, or there is a yellow triangle on it, you will need to update it.

what driver did you install? was it win 7, vista, or??????

Hey everyone

I have a problem that needs fixing! MY webcam works with every other program besides windows live messenger. Like it works with skype and programs that need webcams, but never for messenger. I click the button to start a webcam conversation, and everything works fine untill it tries to connect. It always gets cancelled for some reason. PLEASE HELP!

What firewall, antivirus are you using. Current version of WLM?
We could also use the system specs (lower left corner) filled in so we know what hardware you have. 32bit or 64? clean install or upgrade?

I have an Acer Aspire S3-392G laptop. Today I upgraded to Windows 10 and my webcam stopped working. It worked fine on Windows 8.1. My driver is Realtek Webcam HD. I tried updating it, uninstalling and installing again in compatibility mode. Nothing changed. Any advice?

Hi,

I've just bought a Samsung R580 and the built-in webcam is working fine on skype and everything else except for msn messenger. When I connect on video chat with someone, I can see myself but they can't see me and I can not see them, checked my firewall settings- using Mcafee and windows live messenger has full access. I also tried it with my Logitech Quickcam, downloaded softwares too... same thing, I can see myself - webcam is working but people can't see me and I can't see them. Funny thing is it worked once briefly.

And on another chat platform, video is connecting fine but unable to connect to server. It occasionally connects briefly then logs off in 2 minutes.

My computer is fairly new...that's why this issue is driving me crazy! I use skype and messenger a lot because I'm currently stationed in Europe. When I first arrived everything worked great. Then, the voice went out on Skype so we started using Yahoo messenger..then the camera went out on messager...I went and bought both an external webcam and microphone and neither would work at the same time but every once in awhile one would work. Currently I can get voice on skype and that's it. Skype doesn't even give me the option of a webcam anymore and when i try with messenger it says no connection found. I'm not a computer smart person and I've tried and tried to get the camera working. I have no idea what to do about it now..I'm almost to the point of just buying another computer. I would love to be able webcam and talk at the same time!! Please help!!

I upgraded my wife's Laptop to windows 10 from windows 7 last year and it seemed to work fine. She just went out of town and tried to use Skype to video call me but the webcam isn't working. The Audio works fine and Skype worked fine on windows 7. I had her push FN+ESC and it told her that there is no Webcam installed. I connected to her laptop via Teamviewer and tried to check the Device Manager Imaging Devices, but there was no entry for Imaging Devices. I downloaded the Camera Driver(Bison, Chicony) for Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Lenovo G460, G560 Lenovo G560 driver for windows 8 (no driver available for win10) and tried to install it but no luck. I'm wondering if there is a Microsoft Generic Webcam driver that might work, but this is her work machine so I don't want to remotely install drivers willy nilly. Thanks

Hello,I upgraded my w520 from Win 7 to Win 8 last year with zero problems.Now I upgraded my W520 Win 8 to Win 8.1 via the store download. Except the webcam everything works fine. In e.g. the Skype desktop application, Google Hangouts or the camera app, the built in webcam no longer works.The green light turns on, but I just get the crossed out camra icon in e.g. the Skype video options. No video. I see there are no drivers yet for Win 8.1 on the Lenovo support site for the w520 camera.In device manager it still shows the 2011 camera driver 1.1.0.1147 and says "This device is working properly." But it does not work properly.Did anyone get the camera to work or is it just a matter of waiting for a driver to be released eventually?I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, camera is enabled in the Bios and permissions are set to give Skype and the camera app access to the camera. I also tried the W530 drives as was suggested elsewhere. Thank you!

Answer:W520 webcam no longer working after Windows 8.1 upgrade

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I'm really sorry to hear that when you try to use webcam in your Lenovo ThinkPad W520, you are getting a crossed camera image.
 
Check if your camera is in normal or private mode. This could be happening because you might have set your camera in private mode.
Go into Lenovo Settings App on Metro view, and select camera.
There will be the options of Private and Normal.
Select Normal.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

The webcam worked perfectly with the installed version of Windows 8 that came with my machine. These problems appeared after installing Windows 8.1. When I start Windows 8.1's Camera app, the LED positioned to the right of the webcam flickers on and off. Sometimes when the LED is on, you can see webcam footage for a brief instant. It's very inconsistent though. I have Linux Mint 16 installed alongside Windows 8.1 as a dual boot option, and strangely enough the webcam also does not work in Linux Mint. Trying other camera apps, such as Google+ Hangouts, does not work. I downgraded to Windows 8, and the camera still does not work - even with Windows 8's version of the camera driver. What should I do?

Answer:Y410p webcam no longer working after Windows 8.1 upgrade

After a lot of wasted hours, it seems like my webcam does work in Linux Mint on some applications. So the hardware isn't at fault. I'm hesitant to reinstall Windows 8 and all the drivers from Lenovo's website, because I tried it and it didn't work. No amount of driver reinstallation or Windows Updates is doing the trick. Regretfully, I also deleted the recovery partition that came with the laptop. *sigh* Guess there's nothing I can do.

I have just installed the latest Yahoo Messenger (v.10) on a new Windows 7 (x64) platform, and I can't get my webcam to work. All I get when I try --> Messenger --> My webcam is a black screen. In other words, my webcam does not broadcast. My webcam seems to be correctly connected and installed on my PC with the latest drivers ("The device is working" ). And I can use my webcam with other applications, like Skype, on Windows 7, with no problems. I use a desktop PC with a USB webcam.

By the way, I can see the video image from the webcams of my YM contacts when I am in a video conversation with them. So, no problem the other way.

I have also tried to un-install/re-install both the webcam (Windows 7 re-installs it automatically) and YM. I have also tried the previous versions of YM (v.9 and v.8) I have also gone through all the camera settings in YM. But still no chance.

I have already searched the Net, and I found several other YM users reporting the same problem when they try to use their webcam with YM on Windows 7, but I could not find any solution.

Is there a well known problem related to the use of a webcam with YM on Windows 7 ?

Could someone help me ?

Answer:[Help requested] Webcam not working on Yahoo Messenger with Windows 7

Since it is working in other applications, it can only be the settings or a feature of YM that is not yet working (in win 7 at least). Are you able to try with another webcam?

Hello, I recently upgraded to windows 8 and I have everything working so far except for the webcam. I've installed the drivers so that when I go into device manager under Imaging devices it lists Integrated Camera and Camera Plus and device manager says both of these are updated and working the fine. However, when I use the Camera app which I get to from Windows 8 metro all I see is a cartoon of a camera crossed out. The yellow webcam light does turn on, but it's not working. The same thing happens when I try to do a video recording in Microsoft OneNote 2007, which I used to be able to do.  I've tried to uninstall the webcam drivers and reinstall it, but it still isn't working. I've tried doing hardware scans and update scans in the Lenovo Solutions Center but it says everything is fine. Any suggestions would be really helpful. If I can't get everything to work in Windows 8 I'm switching back to Windows 7, which I made a backup disc of. Thanks,-Noora

Answer:X230 tablet Windows 8 upgrade, webcam not working

I think I finally fixed it actually, sorry about that. I just kept installing drivers from the Lenovo website and it's working now. The camera program that you access through Metro says the camera is only 0.9 pixels though, and I thought the camera was more than that.  Is there a way to tell if I've installed all the necessary drivers? I have done multiple software scans with Lenovo Solution Center but even when the camera wasn't working it said I had no updates, so that's why I kept installing drivers from the website.  Also, does anyone know the driver to make the wacom pen right click button work? I really miss that One thing I think is better with Windows 8 actually is the screen orientation change button. It's way faster than in Windows 7! I also like that it doesn't do it automatically, because I don't always want it automatic.

Hi,
im currently in university accomodation with free broadband internet use, this is good but it is restricted in the fact that not all ports are useable, torrents limewire etc are all blocked which is fine for me.

However i like to use msn and more specifically video chat. This worked fine in the first couple of weeks that i was here, however i tried again more recently and it seems it doesnt work for me. It does for other people in my accomodation block. When i try to enable my webcam it displays the image from it and says connecting, then live messanger just says it cannot connect, try again later.

I have reinstalled live messanger, tried using windows messanger (forgot how awful that was) and i have gone into networking services and enabled UPnP. I have tried with a number of contacts with no avail. I have also tried a new webcam which was no help, both webcams work on the pc, recording videos and taking pictures, but not on msn or live messanger.

Ive tried searchin google to no avail, im using xp so the thread on here about vista doesnt help me.

My copy of xp is fully updated, windows firewall is enabled and im using a NOD32 protection suite with IMON internet monitor included.

Sorry for the long post, just wanted to give as much detail as possible,
Does anyone have any ideas whats up?

Thanks,

Answer:Windows 10 upgrade Thinkpad T410 Webcam Not Working After

HiSo here is how I solved the integrated camera being not recognized/detected by Windows 10.- I went Into Device Manager, uninstalled the unrecognized USB device.- Shut down the laptop. Removed the battery.- Pry out the plastic frame surrounding the screen to uncover the camera.- Remove the two screws retaining the camera and unplug it.- put back the battery and wait for Windows to load and log in as usual.- wait for all drivers and programs to load normally.- plug the camera back in.- you'll normally hear Windows detecting a new device and will automatically install it. Check your device manager for an imaging device. You should see an imaging device in the list.- to test if it's working properly, you can use Skype and see if it detects the camera in the video settings.

When you get the message if an other program use still the camera.

So try to disable the webcam software and other messenger programs in msconfig.
Then reboot the notebook and if you want to use the webcam software you have to start the webcam software firstly.

It uses the following drivers:
ArcSoftKsUFilter.sys
usbvideo.sys

I would appreciate if someone could help with this issue as Sony are washing their hands off it (my laptop is 2 years old and therefore out of warranty).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello roddy and welcome to Seven Forums.

Couple of possibilities. You could go to the start menu and type in Device Manager and then click on Device Manager. A dialog box will open. Look for Imaging Devices in the left column and click the little arrow to the left. Then double click on the camera and click the Driver tab. Try updating your driver.



Or you could go to the Sony eSupport website, enter your country and model number, and look for the necessary driver(s).

Inspiron 1525 Integrated WebCam not working in Windows 7 64-bit.  I have tried reloading drivers and software. Uninstalled and re-installed multiple times. Making sure that WIA is turned on in services. Tried compatibility mode. Downloaded various driver versions from Creative's website and from Dell. Re-installed the A16 bios upgrade (as suggested by Dell). I used msconfig to make sure that no other applications were started or running. Uninstalled Live Messenger. Device Manager recognizes the camera and says that it is working properly. Despite all of that I still get the message "Camera is not available. Please make sure it is not in use by another program" when using the Dell Web Cam application or Live Messenger. When trying to acquire image with ArcSoft or HP Photo suite I get "Camera is unavailable" as well.  Even in Safemode with all drivers disabled I get the same message. I used the camera just before doing the clean install of Windows 7 64-bit so I know that it is not a hardware issue, but it does appear that there is some type of hardware incompatibility issue with "7". Any ideas? Possible OS settings I'm missing?

I'm getting frustrated so I've come here to see if anyone knows a way to help resolve this issue.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A300 which came with Windows Vista 64-bit pre-installed. After about a year or so of having the laptop, I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 64-bit. In the process, I believe the driver to my webcam (Chicony usb 2.0 camera) was deleted.

When I go into devices manager in the control panel, the webcam isn't listed; neither is "imaging devices."

I have tried downloading the driver manually, but I keep getting an error message, "Webcam open fail. Restart camera or computer."

My computer has listed my webcam as "unknown device."

If anyone knows how to fix this, please, I beg you, let me know.

This means that the webcam driver is not installed properly.
Visit the Toshiba European driver page and install the right webcam software/driver for this notebook model.

If the installation fails, restart the notebook and tries again.
This should solve the issue.

Answer:Satellite A100: webcam not working for windows live messenger in Vista

> I also bought an external webcam and it doesn?t work either.
>When I go into the device manager it says both cams are not working properly

For me it looks like a windows system issue.
Usually both webcams work independent from each other and therefore I don?t think that this is a webcam driver issue? I think it?s windows or windows live messenger issue?
Possibly something muddled up the registry keys or some files? maybe some updates or similar?

In your case I recommend uninstalling the internal webcam software, external webcam software and the windows live messenger.
Then you should clean the OS and registry using cleaning tool like for example CCLeaner. It?s free tool.

After that install the Chicony webcam software again and test the functionality without installation of windows live messenger.
If the webcam will functions then you could install the windows live messenger again.

Hello, I am always been a satifiying Lenevo customer, my noteook I've been using since 2012 and still it's in a great shape to work and persnal use. But recently after upgrading from windows 8.1 to Windows 10, the Webcam is not working at all in Skype and the windows Camera applications. I have searched for the latest drivers in Downloads section here in lenevo support but it's nothing listed regarding this problem. However, while I was using Windows 8.1 the webcam worked in Skype but problem remained for the windows default Camera app. What is the perfect solution for this problem? Thank you in advance.

So, I bought a brand new windows 8 Lenovo Z70 laptop, and the webcam is not working. In fact, it doesn't even show up in the device manager, even as an unknown device. It is possible that I accidentally deleted the software for it when I was getting rid of all the useless junk that comes preloaded and didn't notice it at the time (does anyone know what the name of that software is?), but even then it should still show up as unknown device. So far, I've tried installing several different webcam drivers/software from the support website, as well as a full system restore to when I first booted it up, to no avail. Any help?

Answer:Z70 webcam not working

Even after a full OneKey Recovery, it still does not work nor appear in device manager. Any help please?

Hey guys I have a HP laptop (hp G60-418CA) and it has a built in webcam, the laptop is almost 2 years and everything has been fine until now. My webcam randomly stopped working. Whenever I try and open my Cyberlink Youcam, I get an error message that says "Warning no webcam detected, Try plugging a webcam in your computer, if you are using an integrated webcam make sure it is turned on" I either get that error message or this on that comes up most of the time " Youcam cannot connect to your webcam ( USB Video device.) Try selecting another capture device within settings or close any applications that may be using this webcam, then restart your Youcam.


When I go into device manager, Imaging Devices only shows up in device manager like half the times i open it or less.

-I updated the drivers.
-uninstalled youcam
-re installed it
-updated my computer and nothing.


anyone know whats up?

Answer:hp webcam not working

Did you re/install the chipset drivers? That can help the system reconnect with it.

If not, I think it's a loose wire.

I have purchase Logitech HD c270 webcam. This webcam requires 1 GHz but my system is 890 GHz. It is installed on my computer but not fully and it is not working on skype as well. Please guide my how i can resolve this problem. Thanks

Answer:my webcam is not working

Do you mean
This webcam requires 1 GHz but my system is 890 MHz.
If so, I don't think you will get your camera working on that PC - its simply too slow to cope with the data generated by the webcam.

Question: WEBCAM NOT WORKING

Hello,I have got a pavilion dv6 1207 ax model. The webcam isn't working. It had a same problem previously and that time, my friend installed a software throgh a disc named Cam Life which was working fine unless the webcam suddenly stopped working since last few days. When I opened the CamLife software, the vide would be white. So, obviously Skype also stopped working to show any video display and same was the case with FB. So, I uninstalled the CamLife and visited the official hp website to download the webcam software for the model. I got it namely-Hp MediaSmart Webcam-which successfully got installed but when I opened it, it shows me a message-"No webcam detected........"-I attach an image here.Kindly help me solve the issue.Thanks

Question: WebCam not working

Hi All, I just purchased a Lenovo 3000 N100, and as I am testing every feature this notebook has I notice the camera on it is not working. I did a search through this newgroup and found stuff on it but nothing similar to what I have. Pretty much it is the same does not work. Tried the recommend setting to indentify the camera on Lenovo website. But it cannot find it or allow the driver to take in control panel. I uninstall and dowloaded the driver from this website and still no change. What appears to make mine different is that it does not identify in device manager as a WebCam2.0 like everybody elses. Mine reads "Intergrated Cam". After another scan of this forums I found that it somebody direct to the manufactures (Sonic) latest drivers. Well now it reads it as WebCam 2.0.... But When I try to use the test feature  suggest from Lenovo here. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67297  to get it work I still get nothing wont identify the camera at all. Any ideas or suggestions, I like your thoughts on this or help, or direct me to a post I happen to miss regarding something similar all is appreciated. J.

From what i found windows 7 deepblue is not a legal version of windows 7.and im going to assume that you downloaded this.everything i saw for this points to torrents, cracked, hacked, and kgen.i would suggest you get a legal copy of windows 7 and read the forum rules because they say expressly that no help can be given with torrents or the like etc.

Question: Webcam not working

Built-in webcam not working... My webcam is not working properly. So I checked the ArcSoft Webcam Companion 4 to see if my camera was connected. It said "A webcam was not found or is not working properly. Please click Connect button and try again." So I click on the Connect button and it tells me "Camera not found. The camera is either being used by another application or is not connected. Make sure the cam is connected and working properly.I have tried installing Intel USB 3.0 from the official network of Sony Vaio but that also didnt work out.I have checked for windows update too." I have no idea what to do!

My laptop is Sony Vaio E series SVE15115EN. I use Windows 7 Home Basic (64 bit).

I have windows Vista and the Veo webcam I just purchased from ebay won't work. When I tried to install the driver using the cd is said that I couldn't use it with vista. Well I figured out how to bypass that with the help of a forum like this one. I went in and made it think I had XP. So everything downloaded. So I restarted my computer and then plugged the USB cable in but it's not working. When I plugged the USB in is said Windows is installing USB imaging device. But nothing is happening and Skype says it cannot access the webcam. Please help...so frustrating!!

I just uninstalled all programs and drivers associated with the veo webcam...maybe a fresh start will help?

Question: Webcam not working

Hello all,

I really need help here. Been trying to fix my webcam problem the entire day but can't seem to find the problem.

I have a HP Pavilion DV6 laptop with a built in webcam. It was working fine the past couple of days but today, it suddenly stopped working.

Right now when I run Skype or any IM prog, it just shows a choppy video like this
In my device manager, everything seems fine..

Any possible workaround for my problem??
 

Answer:Webcam not working

What's the complete model number of that HP Pavilion dv6 series laptop?

There should be a dash and additional characters after dv6.

If you don't know for sure what it is, advise what the product number(P/N) on the sticker is.

Hi, I recently purchased an S10-2 and downloaded Skype. When i tried video calling a friend, it threw up a video error at first. Said Video not available, it may be being used by another application. I disconnected and tried again, said video loading and the image was blank. I checked the drivers, found that under device manager>sound,video,game controllers, I only have Realtek high definition Audio installed. Visited the Lenovo supports and download site and I do not findand webcam drivers. All I need is for the webcam to work. And yes, the verifcase software works fine. Look forward to a speedy solution to my very basic problem. Thanks

Question: Webcam not working

Hi,
I've searched and read a number of the forums on problems with webcams, checking the device manager etc. The webcam isn't listed in the device manager, and the USB drivers are all working. If I need to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, which ones are they, something like this; Inter (R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Control - 3B34 ? I downloaded an update for this driver above compatible with the computer model but that hasn't worked.
I deleted the YouCam program as well, and reinstalled a later version, but it still says there's no webcam. Which has been the case for 6 weeks now.
It's a Fujitsu AH530.
Any help, to save taking it to the technician would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Today my HP Webcam 101 which is built into my laptop (HP Pavilion g6-1337sa) has decided to not work. It doesn't not fully work, as when I video call on skype it works for a split second and then turns off. It sometimes then either goes to a green screen or the YouCam loading screen or fails to work at all. I'm unable to make it work at all. I have tried reinstalling Skype & YouCam but no change, as well as a System Restore from before the problem started. I have also tried many of the problems on the HP forums already, including from here, which hasn't helped;http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02452221One of the solutions was to change the driver from HP-webcam101 to "USB Video Device" which did nothing, and I can't seem to find the HP webcam.  I'm not sure if this is also relevant but if I was to try and get the webcam to work in the YouCam application, it will attempt to connect to the webcam, and you also hear the sound when you connect a USB device? And a pop up comes up saying "This Device can peform faster" and then it dosconnects.  It also had a short burst of time where it worked for maybe a few minutes, then stopped again and hasn't since. The webcam does connect, extremely briefly, but I have no idea what the problem is at all.  Any solutions or help will be greatly appreciated. many thanks Toby (Windows 7 64bit)

Answer:HP Webcam 101 not working.

Hi TobyMiller, Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on your HP Pavilion g6-1337sa Notebook   and  HP Webcam 101 not functioning correctly. Make sure you have no external USB devices connected while troubleshooting. Try opening Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager. In Device Manager, locate the Webcam Driver, and then double-click the device  name. Then locate the USB driver and uninstall this device. Click the Driver tab, and then click Rollback Driver. Restart the computer. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Question: Webcam not working

:cryGot all drivers for my acer crystal eye webcam, but it does not show the actual camera for use, and system restore was no help! Can you help please?
 

Answer:Webcam not working

A few things to try...

1) Go into CONTROL PANEL > DEVICE MANAGER and be sure there is not a red "X" or yellow "?" by any of the drivers. If there is, click on the device and attempt to let Windows reinstall it by searching for and downloading it.

2) If this fails, go to www.acer.com, go to the drivers & downloads section, enter the exact PC model # and manually look for the most current driver for your PC and version of Windows (be sure to check if your version of Windows is 32 or 64 bit; this may make a difference on which driver to download. If unsure, go to CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM and it will tell you if it's 32 or 64 bit).

Hope this helps.
