Lenovo Flex 3 1570 internal camera not working after Windows 10 upgrade

Question: Lenovo Flex 3 1570 internal camera not working after Windows 10 upgrade

I just tested my camera after my upgrade to Windows 10 and it's not working. I double checked the settings and it all looks fine. I checked to see if maybe it was just the camera app but, the camera is not working in anything. All I get is a grey screen with a camera icon with a line through it. I have the newest drivers from the Lenovo support site but, still not working. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

I wanted to install a HDD in my Flex 5-1570 (256GB SSD), but I couldn't get it open. Following the guide, I removed all 10 screws, but the base cover was as attached as ever. What do I need to do? The manualInstructions on pg. 36 (pdf)

I opened my one month old Lenovo Flex 5-1570 to see what is going on inside because what I read / see is confusing and have these questions (I?m aware that my actions may void the warranty): The maintenance manual say to first unplug the battery plug and then remove the battery but I can?t unplug it. The only place to pull the plug out is the wires and I don?t want to apply too much pressure doing so. I also tried to pry out the plug with no success. Perhaps the plug is locked and I wonder if on the attached picture the 2 small holes shown on the top of the plugs socket are the locks and maybe I should put something to press into these holes to release the plug. Anyone knows if the battery plug is locked? For the benefit of other users, as per attached picture (noticed I'm only allowed to post 1 picture only) the HDD includes the bracket required to install the HDD and there is no cable required. Looks like the new HDD just plugs in. Also the manual says to remove 2 screws to remove the HDD but there are 3 screws to remove.

I've run into a quagmire and need some help.

I purchased a Lenovo Flex3-1570 and a Crucial MX200 250GB SSD to upgrade to. I've had nothing but fits trying to get this SSD running.

1. The SSD is recognized in the bios
2. The SSD is not seen by windows 10 installer (fresh install)
3. Can't clone drive due to 512/4000 sector size mismatch. (tried macrium, acronis, minitool partition wizard)

I've tried the following steps to try to resolve the issue.

1. Boot from legacy instead of UEFI
2. initialized SSD on another PC
3. ran diskpart "clean" command on SSD
4. Installed IRST SATA driver during windows installation

In trying to resolve this issue i've decided all "support" departments should be renamed "not my problem" departments......seriously a joke.

The only thing i can think of is that it is some sort of SSD DEVSLP (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DevSlp) issue and the SSD is being put to sleep after the bios loads and before windows setup loads, but I can't get anyone at Lenovo to confirm this is the problem.

I've run across multiple posts online about similar issues but all were resolved by initializing the drive or fixing a corrupted MBR with the diskpart "clean" command.

Hoping someone here can maybe help shed some light on the issue and help to resolve it, even if it means getting a different model SSD that will work with this laptop.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Welcome to TenForums, mk12delta.

Have you tried completely imaging the old disk and restoring the image to the SSD? A very different thing from cloning.

I need help regarding the pink screen problem I am experiencing recently on my laptop. I see pink in place of white, green in place of black. There is screen image on the screen even after it has beenclosed or minimized- Ghost effect.(Not sure about terminology).External monitor works fine with HDMI.2 years old laptop. No more warranty. I have opened my laptop, unplugged the lcd screen and lcd cable and replugged everything back together hoping it was a lcd inverter or backlight problem. But nothing changed. The cable looked fine without any damage, and the screen looked fine from the inside. Please suggest if is a problem is with lcd cable or lcd digitzer or  something I do not know. I don't see the point of taking the laptop to repair and getting charged 250-300$ where as I can get a decent new laptop for 350-450$. I would rather buy the necessary part and replace it myself.screen faultyIll be glad if you could provide service. Thank you for your time.

?I bought a laptop, Lenovo flex -1570 from US through amazon.com, for my father's birthday present. Thanks for ruining it in a way that I could have never imagined. In just 2 days of laptop usage, the mouse pad has come out. The amazing service center in India (ticket no. HT014716010) said that the glue that held mousepad to the laptop "WASN'T STICKY ENOUGH" and added that they do not support this laptop as its "international warranty" is limited to US and China and I need to take it to your US service center to fix it. $619 laptop, 2 days, and it is nothing more than a junk box to me. As a birthday present I have gifted my father nothing more than added tension and thanks to you guys for making that happen. Attaching a pic for your reference. ?

So, I've tried EVERYTHING but I can't get it to work.
 
I have used my internal microphone to Skype call and Teamspeak, but it randomly shuts off. I have done the Microsoft troubleshooter and it actually said that there's no microphone to check on. 
 
Right now I'm still working with Windows 8, because I don't want to change to Windows 10 untill this is fixed. It should work in Windows 8, so changing to Windows 10 shouldn't make a diffrence in the first place.
 
My microphone has worked, the problem is that it shuts off randomly. I don't know what I can do?
 
With kind regards,
 
Anne-Louise
 
Edit: I remember this happening after setting up speech recognition. I just opened it and my microphone works with speech recognition, but when I want to 'train' my computer to recognize my voice better the microphone stops working.
 
Could speech recognition close down my internal microphone fully, and how do I change speech recognition so it doesn't work (I never use it, was for funzies).

Also there is no microphone jack so I cannot use my regular headphones with their microphone.Please help.

I recently purchased the Flex 5, and thought it would be fun to get an active pen to go with it, so I picked up a Bamboo Ink pen. All was well for the first evening with the pen, I was able to control things with it, draw with it, everything you would expect from a pen. The next morning started fine, but after about an hour then pen stopped working. Nothing changed on the laptop, the pen simply went from working to not working. Thinking it might be something with the pen, I went ahead and purchased a Lenovo Active Pen. When it arrived and I installed the battery... nothing. No response from the computer at all to the pen. At this point I was worried that there might be some incompatability with some installed software, so I restored Windows, wiping out everything I had setup over the week that I had the computer. During the Windows setup process the pen started working. Hurray! All seemed well, until the next morning, when the pen stopped responding again. I now had two pens that had previously worked, but now were not responding. Exasperated, I restored Windows again, but this time, nothing. That brings us to this morning. I ran a complete re-install of Windows. Once again, nothing. I then found an update BIOS for the computer and installed it. This time on rebooting, both pens began working. For the rest of the day everything seemed fine.  Though you should have realized, I wouldn't be writing this if everything were still fine. Yes, this evening, the la... Read more

While checking, I noticed that Wacom device driver also could not start as well (Code 10). Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on? I really would like to use the tablet mode of this laptop instead of having to return it due to the touch screen not working.

Have noticed this problem with a few new lenovos now, when updated to windows 10 no matter what REALTEK driver you use wether it be from windows update, from realtek or from lenovo's site... the cursor will stutter when moving it and performance is degraded.  IF you uninstall the realtek driver and leave audio as "high definition audio device" this problem disappears.   It appears the issue stems from the dolby component that automatically is installed when installing the driver, even removing the dolby software does not remove it from the realtek control panel.  How can you COMPLETELY get rid of the dolby enhancements thus fixing the problem or is there another solution in the works?  

Answer:Flex 3 - 1570, Windows 10 Realtek/Dolby issue.

I am also experiencing stuttering from all input devices, keyboard, touchpad, mouse, and touchscreen. My Flex3-1570 is only 10 days old.  I didn't notice if the stuttering occured out of the box, before I updated all the drivers. I have tried all kinds of suggestions, including removing all antivirus, setting all power settings to 100%.  I do notice a corelation between having the A/C apapter plugged in or not.  If the A/C is plugged in, the stuttering can be stopped by unplugging the A/C adapter.  However, after some use with the A/C unplugged, the stuttering resumes.  The stuttering is not always there, I would say about 90% of the time.  It makes it almost impossible to use the touchscreen to scroll down a web page, because after the stutter is over, the finger swipe is detected as a fast swipe and the page scrolls all the way to the end.  It's very annoying.  I posted a Youtube video of this stuttering at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72garn6gFpI Also, it's almost impossible to use the touchpad with any accuracy with this stuttering, because the curser stalls, then jumps across the screen quickly when moving the cursor.  Anybody else experiencing this? -----Lenovo Flex3-1570 LaptopModel: 80JM002MUSProcessor 5th Generation Intel Core i7-5500U Processor (2.40GHz 1600MHz 4MB)Operating System Windows 10 Home 64Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 940M 2GBMemory 8.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3L 1600 MHz &nb...

Bought my Flex 5 at Costco. There are no drivers for the touchpad which eliminate being able to scroll with one finger on the right side of the touchpad like most of us are used to. You can scroll with two fingers however.Called Lenovo who couldn't help. They said I would have to wait until drivers are released from them or Microsoft. Love the Laptop except for this issue.Wondering if anyone else has the same issue?

Hello Jmrgn59Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.I do not have this unit myself so I couldn`t confirm.
 
But from the sounds of things, this model does not support the convential scrolling on the right side, instead it will sport the multitouch / multigesture feature, this may be the reason for this, hopefully someone will be able to confirm this with their unit.

I recently bought my flex 5 and wanted to install a new SSD, Samsung 960 EVO, into the computer. I have disconnected the old HDD so the sdd is the only drive in the computer.  The SSD does show up in the bios as the only hard drive in the system, but it is not letting me boot from it.  In the bios, if i change the sata control to achi and boot mode to legacy I can get windows to install onto the drive, but when windows needs to reset to finish install the computer boots back to usb drive. In the bios the ssd is listed as one of the boot options and when you try to boot to it the computer says that there is no bootable drive in the computer.  I have also tried using the factory bios setting, with the sata controller set to intel rst and boot to uefi. In the windows installer, the SSD does not show up unless I install the intel rst drivers. I am them able to install windows on the drive. Upon restarting the computer boots back to the usb and the SSD is not visible in the bios as a boot device. I have also tried with secure boot enabled and disabled but that didn't change the results.  Any help will be appreciated.

In Aug. 2017 I bought a new Flex 5 from Office Depot.It sits on an end table next to my chair and is plugged into ac adapter all day. I use it on my lap for web browsing, and some open office spreadsheets. It does not ever get bounced around. 3 weeks after purchase, I come out in morning to find PC will not accept any input. Power on cycle ends up with PC going into diagnosis and repair, which it fails to do. After that it would never go past the initial screen. Office Depot said bad harddrive and gave another Flex 5. The 2nd Flex 5 ran for 3 weeks, and then it also failed. This time the PC got extremely slow, and after power on cycle, it to tried to recover but failed. However, this time it did go far enough to let me get tothe advanced troubleshooting. CHKDSK /F corrected errors on both the C: and D: partitions. The X: partition had errors too, but the partition is write protected and could not be fixed. I was able to use xcopy to retrieve all of my data from C drive to a flash drive. The harddrive seemed to work fine, but it failed trying to do a RESET with save data, and a full RESET. It seemed to be due to the X: errors. Once again Office Depot decided to give me a new Flex 5. My current Flex 5 has been running fine since early November, until it started running slower on Monday night, and Tuesday morning it quit. Once again it goes into diagnostics mode, then repair mode, and then says repair failed.  CHKDSK found and corrected errors on the C :... Read more

I'm trying to upgrade the RAM on my laptop but the base cover is preventing me from actually changing because it won't budge in some places.  I've been following its hardware maintenance manual which can be found on the laptop's product support page here. Page 34 shows how to remove the cover. It makes it looks so easy to remove as if it would just pop out. Nope. In fact, the part where the arrows are showing are the areas that seem immovable.  Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?

I haven't done any researches around the forums but I'll get straight to posting. I noticed that the camera is super black when I'm using it especially when using the Lenovo Motion Control feature. And the only way to make it brighter is to change the capture resolution on the Camera Man app. I tried reinstalling drivers and even fully recycling the PC. I guess that's not clear enough to make my question clear. The first time I use the Camera app was good enough. But the time I started using Lenovo Motion Control, it's unresponsive. I took a look at the camera app and found out that the camera wasn't really capturing anything. Well, it was but it's pitch black and it only captures very bright ilght sources. It's too annoying that I have to go to Camera Man app and change the capture resolution to make it lighter again for reuse. But it will revert back to pitch black again after quite some time not using it (or even in the next use seconds later). I also tried reinstalling the drivers with no luck. I reset my PC with no changes at all. Now I'm trying to fully recycle the PC to make sure that it's not a hardware issue. The last resort is bringing the unit back to the store and demand the same model even if they have to pull it out from different branches. I also noticed that there is some sort of unusual color shift on the lower left part of the screen where an rgb(0,0,0) still display a different color other than black.

I have verified with a meter that the charger is providing a steady 20V with current capability up to 4.5A @ 20V.

I noticed in my BIOS the Intel SGX software technologies is not enabled and reading on the web I understand there are a lot of security advantages with this technology. I wonder why it's not set as the default. Is it a good idea to enable SGX?

I got my Ideapad yesterday, and I have noticed that the spacebar is squeaky.  It doesn't do it every single time, but when it does it is pretty loud and annoying.  It only seems to happen on the right side of the spacebar, but unfortuantely that's the side I use.  I'm not sure if I should try to get it fixed, try and get a replacement system or just hope that it goes away as I continue to use it.  I type a lot and I'm going to be taking notes with it in college so it's going to be a problem if it persists.  Has anyone had this happen before or have advice about what I should do?

Hi everyone, I just received my 1570 Flex 5 and am a little concerned about its overall performance and am considering getting the 1080p version and ditching the 4k version. Most browsers get graphical tearing when scrolling up and down the pages (running the new Firefox) and I have all of the updates installed (i've checked multiple times over the past couple of days). Additionally theres a lot of programs that can't scale properly in the 4k range and get wonky.I've also never experienced this concept of running integrated graphics as primary and the discrete graphics as secondary and seems absurd. I was also pretty upset to see the onboard HDMI can't support 2560x1600 for my 30" monitor.Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? It basically seems that the computer is making too much of an effort to run the 4k monitor and would do better to get the 1080 version.

So last night I came home from dinner and my laptop was on the floor. It's fallen off my bed before so I didn't think much of it until I turned it on and it didn't respond to my touch. After some investigation, everything that has to do with the touch screen is gone. There are no setting on the laptop for the touch screen and there is no way to calibrate the screen. I'd like to try and avoid factory resetting the laptop as I do not have a way to backup my system right now. (My family member who helped me with this in the past lives in another state now) I also noticed that the computer itself didn't pick up the serial number... I'm not sure if this has anything to do with my problem but it was very off that the setting said the serial number was invalid. I called the support line (the only one I could find was the premium line, what happened to the old one???) and they wont do anything unless I sign up for their monthly package or pay $130 (plus tax I'm sure) to let them remote control my laptop. I've had bad experienced with this and so I'm not going to allow them to do this. Is there any way to download a driver or something that would fix this problem? I have full access to my computer (besides what lenovo has blocked me out of automatically) so let me know if there is something I could look at and show you for more information. I've tried to search for this topic and couldn't find anything related to this. Thanks for the help.Kass.

Hello, I recently received a Windows 8.1 Lenovo yoga 2 pro. After researching Windows 10, I decided to install it in place of Windows 8.1. I checked to see if everything I had on my computer (including the system itself) was compatable with Windows 10, and it was. After I updated my system, I went to set up Cortana and noticed that the mic wasnt working. After enabling my internal microphone, setting it to my default, and checking to see if the driver was up to date, I was still left with the same issue. The mic is recognized by the computer, but will not pick up any sound. After countless hours of trying to find a solution, I decided to downgrade and go back to Windows 8.1 (Thinking the problem would sort itself out). Still, after I went back to 8.1, the mic would not pick up any sound.. I tried reinstalling the driver, installing the newest version of the driver, and it still will not work. I hope it is an easy fix.  (My system is 64 bit, 4gb ram, Windows 8.1. My audio drivers are all from Realtek) (if that helps any)Thanks in advance.

I have a Lenovo G50-70 with Windows 10 Home (version 1703, Build SO 15063.413), 64 bit operating system. The built-in camera doesn't work and so the built-in microphone (I'm not able to record anythin and I can't use any videonferencing software and neither talk with anyone). When I was on Windows 8.1 thse devices were working normally. Is there any solution (e.g. an external webcam or an external microphone) that can solve this issue or I ahve to downgrade to Windows 8.1 ? Thanks in advance for any help. Michele  

Answer:Lenovo G50-70 camera (and microphone) not working with Windows 10

Windows 10 added some new security/privacy settings, so assuming you have all the latest drivers installed (which you should check), you may just need to enable applications to access the camera and microphone via Windows 10's privacy settings.  Press the Windows Key + i to open the Settings window, and select Privacy (the lock icon)From the left pane in the resulting window, select Camera, and make sure that the "Let apps use my camera hardware" option is enabledNext scroll down the list of "applications that can use your camera" below, and make sure that the camera is enabled for use by the application you are trying to use.The process is similar for enabling the microphone to bypass the Windows 10 privacy settings. I do not see any new drivers for the sound card, or camera that have been released since 2016, but you can check to be sure you have the latest versions using the tool linked below.  Lenovo System Update Utilityhttps://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht080136 Good Luck,

I have a HP g42-415dx laptop with windows 7 on it. I got this laptop for myself for christmas in '10. the camera was always working great, i had a few problems with it randomly turning off, but then i stopped doing that, and worked perfect. But now every time i try to go onto skype or Cyberlink YouCam it says that there is no camera detected.
Now i went to my device manager and I cannot find where my webcam is. I went to imaging devices and the only thing under that folder is HP Photosmart Plus B210 series(NET) and I'm pretty sure that was my old printer.. So I have no idea what to do now, I need advice!
 

Answer:Internal Camera not working?

Your webcam should be listed under "Imaging devices" in Device Manager. If it isn't listed and there are no error symbols in Device Manager (eg question-mark or exclamation-mark) the webcam itself is probably faulty so it's not being detected by the system. I've seen this several times (mostly on HP laptops too).

If it's still under warranty HP will fix it, but otherwise it would be much, much cheaper and simpler to buy an external clip-on webcam.

Answer:Why is camera not working when I upgrade to Windows 10?

Quite likely you need new drivers. And an uninstall of the old drivers first.
Check the OEM Support site for your device and/or the hardware component. Download new drivers if they can be found... Open Device Manager and expand the component category.
Disable the device and uninstall the drivers for it. Reboot. Run the driver install utility you downloaded from your OEM. Reboot, even if it does not advise you to...

I tried to use the internal camera on my Ideapad 310 yesterday to Skype with someone and it is not working.  It has previously worked but now not matter what I do I get a camera icon with a line through it.  I have updated drivers and checked all of the boxes, nothing.  Lenovo UK support is truly one of the worst, ineffective, lazy, good for nothings.  Their support is just there to infuriate their customers who have paid hard cash to get these products.  They seem think I just contact them to bother them.   Someone needs to see that instead of supporting they are just a sales prevention team.

Hi All, I just got Lenovo T420 Last week with Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit OS. Unfortunately internal microphone array does not work. I already tried installing  latest Audio driver for Conexant 20672 SmartAudio HD from Lenovo Support Site. Driver  8.32.23.5 . Still no luck. Refereed one of blog article where they mentioned to disable Audio Enhancement, unchecked that and still no luck. Tried with Skype, Google Voice, Cisco WebEx Communicator, IP Communicator and no luck in getting internal Microphone to work. Also tried sound recorder and all recordings are blank. There are lot of users who are facing this problem with Lenovo T420 Win 7 64Bit OS, not many users have time to come forward to discuss the same. Trying an alternative solution like plugging in an external mic or using usb headphones is not an option. Internal speakers work fine. If external mic is plugged in even that works fine. to isolate this issue. I even tried downgrading and upgrading several audio driver releases. also tried clean OS reinstall and tried deploying our Win 7 Lenovo image on this laptop. still no luck. I suspect this could be an hardware problem. Please suggest. Remember: I have already tried settings under Fn+F6 key several times using permutation and combination and spent atleast 8 Hours continuously to find a fix. Any known solution, Hotfixes from Lenovo is highly appreciated.

The only factor in whether or not to get an SSD should be if the size within your budget will hold all your data.

This comes with 16.0GB DDR4 2133 MHz and 1TB 5400 RPM+128GB PCIe SSD.  My question is as follows: Can I upgrade the Hard Drive to more capacity like 256 GB SSD or 512 GB SSD in future? If yes, can I get this done via Lenovo Support or do I need to do it on my own? Basically, I just want to know if the System provides me the ability to upgrade Hard Drive - both HDD and SSD.

Answer:Regarding Lenovo Flex 5 (14") Laptop - Upgrade SSD and HDD Possible?

Hi dacoffee,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Yes you may upgrade your Flex 5-1470 SSD to 256 and 512 GB capacity for your future need.
Tech support can only assist on information and the original parts tied on the warranty but not on doing the upgrade nonetheless you have us here in our community to help you do your upgrade if needed.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hello,i have one additional SSD and thinking about replace the standard HDD with it. In warranty there is said to send laptop with standard HDD when malfunction occur, so i believe i can work with SSD until I'm forced to use warranty? I live in Poland and just want to know if there is any warranty lost when i install SSD.

Hi Guys,              I hope you guys doing great. I'm actually new to lenovo forum and this is my first post so apoligies in advance of any typo or error.             I have lenovo flex 15, its running great with hybrid sshd. i recently purchased kingston ssd (512 gb). I was able to install windows in it successfully but after some usage it got freeze and went into not responding state, i then restarted it and it gave my Disk Read Error at bios time. I tried to install windows 2-3 times again to make sure of windows installation and all went perfect again until it gave the very same error again. since then it sometimes boot perfectly (but after soome usage become unresponsive) or sometime it directly give Disk Read Error.             After some research i though the ssd is faulty and i had to buy another one. This time i bought intel ssd 520 series 240gb. Sadly it repeated the very same behaviour again. Like its giving disk ready error most of the time.  After some research i found that i need to change sata mode from IDE to AHCI, and i tried to change it but looks like there is no such option in my laptop Bios menu (not even in advance option). But a guide explaind if you look into IDE ATA Controllers under Device Manager then if it contains AHCI keyword in its name then it means the laptop is running AHCI mode. So i... Read more

Hi, I was thinking of buying this hybrid:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16834332513 And then upgrading it with this:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820250085 I'm not clear on whether this voids the warranty or not? As close as I can understand it, it "may" if I mess something up? I've opened at least 100 laptops without messing anything up, so I'm confident I can do it without damaging anything, but I have also seen motherboards and touchscreens die in the first year, and don't want to mess up that part of the warranty for an SSD upgrade. I figured I'd make sure it powered on, then shutdown, crack it open, install the M.2 SSD, clone everything over, wipe the old SSD once into windows, and then finally perform the product registration. (Which uploads all your hardware specs? So they'd know everything was A-Okay with the new drive in place?) Thoughts? Anyone got more info on how strict they are with self service?

Hello.. I'm new to the community and this is my first post. My name's Phil. I recently picked up a Lenovo flex 15. i7 4500u 8GB memory 500 GB HD and 8 GB SSD. The model I have does not include discreet graphics. I see that there is a flex 15 available that comes with an nvidia gt740m graphics card. Is it possible for me to open mine up and install this same card on the motherboard? Also curious about upgrading the SSD. Is the included 8 GB SSD attached in a hybrid fashion to the HD or is it an actual separate drive? I'm hoping I can replace the 8 GB SSD with a larger SSD to install Windows and my programs on and still keep the 500 GB HD on board.. Is this possible?

Hi,

after upgrading a Toshiba z20T laptop from Win 8 to Win 10 (and updating),
the back camera (Toshiba Web Camera - 5M) no longer works while the front camera
(Toshiba Web Camera - FHD) works fine.

The device manager shows the camera only under "hidden devices", and its icon
is greyed out. The device status message indicates this problem:

Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

I am not able to open the laptop and physically reconnect the device.
Here is what I tried to do instead:

0: reboot (any number of times since the problem occurred a week ago)
1: tried to update the driver but it's uptodate
2: tried "scan for hardware changes" and "add legacy stuff"
3: troubleshooted hardware and scanned for cameras and devices
4: uninstalled the driver - which made the camera disappear completely and its
icon came back only after using a restore point
5: sfc /scannow produced only standard unrepairable files (apparently related to NVIDIA)
6: compared the registry entries for the two cameras (there are slight differences -
working camera has EnumerationRetryCount = 1, while it is = 0 for the other one;
the non-working camera has 6 or 7 extra keys called DescriptorValidationInfo
7: tried to install an older Realtek PC Camera driver of the "unconnected" camera
manually and removed the uptodate one (got some bluescreens on the way)
8:... Read more
