Preferred Solution: HP WEBCAM NOT WORKING IN WINDOWS 7 64BIT /HP PAVALLION DV42160

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.)

My elitebook 8460p Webcam which is running on Windows 10 pro 64bit isn't working, I tried installing it through the BIOS but couldn't find it.Please help

I have a 3 month old Inspiron 1525 that I upgraded to Vista 64 bit. I reinstalled the integrated webcam driver and application software (both 64 bit compatible according to the download pages). However, when I start the application, select any of the various features to run (video recording, photo capture) it says "The camera is not available. Please make sure it is not used by another application."  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and software, try various compatibility modes. Disabled Live Messenger. Varified that the WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) was set to automatic and started. All with no luck. Windows device manager recognizes the hardware and says it's working properly. The blue light flashes when rebooting. Microphone works fine. I know it's NOT a hardware issue as the camera worked just fine hours before the upgrade (it was a clean install of 64 bit Vista). All I can think is that there must be a couple settings that I"m missing in the OS. Any suggestions?
Update: I also tried re-installing the BIOS A16 update as suggested on another forum. No luck.

Answer:Inspiron 1525 Integrated WebCam not working in Vista 64bit (new install)

The camera in your Computer is Creative Make. so try to update this driver
http://support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=10284 this might work.
 
Please keep me posted about outcome...

Hey guys

Now my camera wont work. I had to re-install the drivers (they only had the vista drivers) - Can anyone help?

Answer:Portege M800: webcam does not work Win 7 64bit - webcam driver open fail

Hi

Seems you have used wrong or not compatible webcam driver/software?
You should use an Win 7 64bit Chicony webcam software.

> Now my camera wont work. I had to re-install the drivers (they only had the vista drivers) - Can anyone help?
The Portege M800 Win 7 drivers are available on the Toshiba European driver page.
You will find also the Win 7 64bit Webcam driver 1.7.260.0526

Please remove firstly the old driver, then reboot the unit? clean the OS using CCLeaner? reboot the unit again and then install the Chicony webcam software.

---------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.

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.

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. No, I'd afraid this computer HP Pavilion 2228tu is not officially compatible with Windows 10.HP hasn't released drivers for it and it was probably not tested for W10 compatibility. HP wouldn't officially support it with Windows 10.Windows 7 and 8.1 are officially supported on this PC model.Windows 7 and 8.1 are also good choices - they will be supported by Microsoft until year 2020 and 2023 respectively.  You might try to run Windows 10 but if any specific or driver related issues occur, HP support may not be able to assist you > http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05195282 I'd recommend you keep either Win 8.1 or Win 7 on it. Hope this helps.

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

Answer:Windows 8 64bit IE 10 app not working

1. when you switch to apps - from desktop by pressing windows key on keyboard.
DO YOU have IE on your start menu
OR are you then right clicking on a blank area and clicking on all apps and then opening from there

2.When you say it does not connect - is that a message, as depending on how it has been used it only opens on a blank screen, but at the bottom you should see the IE symbol and the bar

Answer:Windows 10 64bit can't working with my laptop

Hi, you only need a 64bit OS when you have more than 4Gb RAM - or if you plan to add more RAM of course.

Perhaps your thinking about 2.89Gb comes from part of your RAM being shared with a video card, or used by integrated graphics.

For example see

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.

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 :(

What do I do???

My computer is a Packard bell Easynote TK37.

Thank you :)

Answer:Re-installed windows 7, webcam not working :( help!

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.

Any help would be much appreciated.

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?

can anyone help me, i would really appreciate all your efforts, hope i could get some clue of what happen and resolve this issue. thank u

I can't seem to get my webcam to turn on.  My Privacy settings are all open and I have run the software and LSC scanning.  LSC says it's ok and passed the tests.  But when I look in Device Manager it does not list there.  I downloaded the software from Lenovo and installed it, it still doesn't show in Device Manager.

Hi,

Some weeks ago after a windows update or something, the webcam stopped working under windows. It isn't a hardware problem, as it works fine under Ubuntu.

Laptop Model: Toshiba Satellite L50-A-18R
Webcam Hardware ID: USB\VID_04F2&PID_B41A&REV_2960&MI_00

Tried:
Uninstalling & Reinstalling the driver in the Device Manager
If I try the "On-line search" option, it fails to find the driver.Installing Toshiba Web Camera Application [doesn't work either]Reinstalling Toshiba System Settings app.Searching on-line by the hardware ID for the drivers.

But it's no use, i'd need the driver files to make it work again.

Thanks in advance for the help.

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.

Any help would be much appreciated.

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.

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?












Solved!

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.

Hi everyone,

Im new here and registered because i am at a total loss

I recently aquired Windows 7 Installation cd and tried to install it o n my CPU:

Processor: AMD Athlon x2 2.60 GHz
Motherboard: Biostar A690M2+
VGA: Sapphire Radeon HD 4670
GRAM: 2x 2GB RAM

Now the problem is that the 32bit version of windows 7 works flawless with my system but the 64bit just wont work with my HD 4670...

I found out that its the HD 4670 because i tried installing windows 7 64bit with minimal RAM and onboard VGA. Then i put the pieces together 1 by 1 and booted windows to test which piece was the culprit...
After i put the HD 4670 in for the first time Windows 7 64Bit boots normally, but once it recognizes the VGA and installs a driver, after i reboot it hangs at the startup and gives me a Bluescreen with an unreadable error message, its unreadable because it rebooots too fast for me to actually read the Bluescreen message

I tried booting in safemode and disabling the HD 4670 in device manager, using driver sweeper and then installing the newest drivers but same result, after i reboot windows would restart itself on startup and give me Bluescreen

Pls note that it works fine in 32bit and that im a total CPU noob so pls refrain from any shortterms

Thanks in Advance

Hi,

After months of patience and following the drivers-info on the Toshiba website,i found it was time to replaced my Vista32 Ultimate with Windows7 Ultimate. It seemed that all drivers now have a 64bit version working under Windows 7, the missing drivers/software could be replace with the Vista 64bit versions. Unfortunately i got some problems with the TOSHIBA PCI DVB-T/Analog TV Hybrid Tuner.

Just searched a couple of ours for a sollution to the TOSHIBA PCI DVB-T/Analog TV Hybrid Tuner (x64) problem with Windows 7. In hardware manager it shows an yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, telling me that there is a problem with the device. Via properties i get an error with code(39).

I have downloaded the drivers from the Toshiba website which returns the following files:
tisdbt1a64.cab
TISDBT1A64.inf
TISDBT1A64.sys
and an additional 'setISDBTDriverParameters'-regkey.

1) When i try to replace the drivers by via the properties in devicemanager, i get a message back that the best drivers are already installed and there is no better driver found.

2) Install manually
There are no instructions to install the downloaded files, nor the regkey. When i try to install the 'inf' file with rightclick, i get a installationerror the the selected inf-file does not suppoert this installationmethod.

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??????

I have a 1.5yr old Ideapad U310, Win 7 64 bit with inbuilt webcam. The camera is not working and cant be swiched on.Neither thru YouCam software or through Skype. Was weoring perfectly a month ago. The Product shown in the the Device manager under Imaging Device "Lexmark X422"  WITH AN EXclamation mark. There is a youCam software which doesnt work as says switch on camera. Fn F9  done the camera is still not ON but icon says on. Reinstalled the Youcam software twice, but issue remains "Camera to be switched on". Please advise.

Answer:Ideapad U310 Windows 7 64bit, YouCam not working

hi vtrakroo,
 
The Lexmark X422 that you're seing is likely the scanner from your Lexmark printer (the built-in camera should usually be listed as Lenovo Easy Camera or similar)
  - Sample image
 
Things that you can try:
1. Boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 (or Fn+F2). In the BIOS, press F9 (or Fn+F9) to load setup defaults then press F10 (or Fn+F10) to save and exit.
    - this procedure will refresh all hardware components in the system
 
2. Inside Windows, check if you have an Unknown Device in the Other Devices section. If you have this, follow this guide on how to identify the device (or post the Hardware ID here)
    - Sample image
 
3. Reinstall the camera driver
   - Camera Driver (Bison, Chicony, Awazu) for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Today i updated my Windows 7 laptop to the Windows 10 Home 64bit OS. Everything seems to work fine, except the WIFI. Windows does find my adapter, but won't wake it up. My built-in wifi button (f12) has got a red light on it, even when I pressed it. I tried the Windows 8 wireless button driver, but i didn't solve my problem. With that driver installed the button switches between airplanemode on/off. Not between WIFI. Also in the WIFi settings wifi turn off. When I try to switch it on, it directly turns back to "off". Wired internet works flawless. I gues it's an driver issue, so i was wondering if there is an driver upcomming? Or is there another solution to switch it on.Please help me. It's very annoying.

Just picked up a Corsair Voyager GT 16GB USB 3.0

Plugged it into USB 3.0 port, my Intel Win8 PC did not like it, just said there was a problem with the device. Managed to solve the problem on Intel Win8 pc by installing some Renesas USB3.0 drivers.

However, I have the same issue on my new AMD build (see sig) also using Win8 64bit too. The renesas drivers do not work as that motherboard does not use renesas usb 3 controller. I tried one or two others as well, including an old Win7 one for AMD boards with no luck.

Have flashed the BIOS to latest version, and installed latest drivers and firmware for it - well kind of, you have to run the Setup.exe for the Gigabyte F2X85A motherboard in Windows 7 compatibility mode, if I try and run normally, it says O/S not supported!

Very shoddy Win8 support for some chipset and USB drivers. But if anyone can find a solution i'd be VERY happy.

Recently I upgraded from Win7 x86 to x64 (professional), but I can't get Windows Mail to work. I got a copy of a working 64bit version (from another computer) of Windows Mail but it won't work on my system, giving this error: 0x8007000E. I Googled it dozens of times but can't get to a solution, most of the results are related to Vista, 32bit and/or other software applications.

My housemate also has a Win7 64bit system, so I already tried copying my Windows Mail to his computer to see if it's corrupt or something alike, but it's not. It totally works on his computer.

Somewhere I found the solution of locating another MSOERES.dll elsewhere on the computer (C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-m..-core-dll.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_2cea88b0c19dd22e) and placing it in the Windows Mail folder. I was very happy to see it actually launched the application, BUT.. There are no icons whatsoever and some text styling isn't correct:

I copied the whole Windows Mail folder again, placed it on my mate's computer, but with the same result. So this is probably due to MSOERES.dll. But with using the one that SHOULD work, I get the 0x8007000E error.

Can you tell us how you got Windows Mial on Windows 7? According to this Windows Mail isn't included with Windows 7 - Looking for Windows Mail? You'll have to use Windows Live Mail.

I know I don't have Windows Mail on my system, I do however have Live Mail, though I don't use it.

Am I missing something?

Actaully why can't you just use Live Mail? Doing the hack and crack thing with Windows Mail isn't going to work too well as you've seen.

I just recently made a clean install of Win Ultimate 64 bit on this laptop which had Win Vista Business before and now the web cam does not work at all.
I tried downloading and installing the web cam driver straight from the Sony support site in compatibility mode and nothing happens. I tried installing the drivers for the web cam fro both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of 7 and still nothing. It just keeps saying that I can't connect to the web cam.

The driver for the web cam is called Arch soft Web companion, and I even tried to install CyberLink You Cam and still nothing. Skype and other messenger programs can't use it either.

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.

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 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.

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

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.

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.

What I found is an intermittent problem with windows paste (ctrl-v) stops working within all applications and even between applications. It turns out that if I stop or restart Internet Explorer 8, then I can cut and paste again normally. After running Internet explorer again for an hour or two or even a day or two, the problem re-occurs, and again I have to close internet explorer.

I use various applications putty, xming, notepad++, firefox, internet explorer 8, outlook 2010, toad, office 2010 all running on Windows 7 64bit and I restart my PC every 4 or 5 days. Our PC's are regularly patched and have the latest updates and have virus protection.

Has anyone else noticed this cut and paste problem with Windows 7 64bit and Internet Explorer ?

Answer:windows 7 64bit + office 2007 pen input not working in reviews

Hello mate, For Word/Excel 2007: go to the Review tab, then click Start Inking. From there, a Ink Tools toolbar should pop up and you can choose from a felt tip pen, ballpoint pen, and so forth.

Hi,
I have upgraded my new laptop from Vista to Win7 64 bit, however the function keys do not work and the function keys that display at the top when you press FN does not show anymore. I have installed Utilities and Value Added Package but no success. Any help is apperciated.

Note To Toshiba Team:
Why don't you package all necessary drivers and software in one package after testing them, based on computer model for example in my case Satellite A350-13A, you could make one package for Win7x64 another for Win7x32, etc, instead of leaving us spending days to figure out what to install and where to find it and if it will work or not. Awaiting your feedback.

Regards
Sahm

Answer:Satellite A350-13A Windows 7 64bit Function Keys not working

Hi

You need to install the Flash Card support utility additionally to the VAP!!!
The Flash Card support Utility can be found in Satellite L500 driver area for example.
After installation if Flash Card support Utility reboot the unit once again and then check the functionality.
