Webcam does not work on X201.

Q: Webcam does not work on X201.

I have tried in Windows 7 64bit and 8 64bit and have had no luck. I have googled all over and found some hints on this forum to try installing Communication Manager, but it does not solve anything. It's like the camera is not seen. I know the camera is not broken or disconnected because LINUX of all things can see it and use it. On the X201 page there are no drivers for the camera at all, only the communication manager install. For Win 8 it is listed that the drivers are built into Windows 8, but as far as I can tell this is not the case, unless i am doing something wrong? Does anyone have a working webcam with their X201 at all in Windows?

Preferred Solution: Webcam does not work on X201.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Webcam does not work on X201.

Try below methods to resolve your webcam issue:1. Check the drivers are properly installed. Go to Control panel-> Device manager -> Imaging devices and check if there is any driver with a yellow mark. Right click Imaging device and Update drivers and check if webcam is working.2. Check in BIOS if integrated camera is enabled.3. Press FN+F6 to open the Communications settings window and press Show my video image button to enable the camera.

Hello everyone, after changing the settings in the BIOS, it started to turn off exactly after 30 minutes, the fan is not working stably, I found similar symptoms on the Internet, allegedly changing one of the BIOS settings, there are irreversible problems with the watchdog, I tried to flash the BIOS and even changed the BIOS chip with exactly the same x201, but nothing helped, the laptop is still shutting down exactly after 30 minutes

I have updated Win10 to my Thinkpad X201. It is quite old win10 from 2016 or so. The problem is that VGA output (and Funktion-F7 keyboard combination for switching between external and internal displays) do not work. Display adapter driver in device manager is "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter". I tried to install the original X201 display driver for windows 7 in compability mode but "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" will not change to "Intel HD Graphics" what is should be. I have disabled windows 10 automatic updates because this mainly a computer for performing live music and I cannot risk windows update messing it. So all I need is a display driver which would fix VGA output. Any suggestions what to do?

Welcome to the forum!
 
Well, it's not that difficult but you need to disassemble a lot of parts. This is fairly easy to do if you closely follow the instructions of Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual, which you can download from here: click me!

Hi all,So, as the username hopefully indicates - a newbie to the x200s, which I bought recently, though I've been using thinkpad products for a few years now (a devoted fan!)My x200s did not come with a webcam and, since I am thousands of miles from home, I reckoned I would try and install one manually. Note that I have swaped its HDD for an SD & changed keyboard in the past with no problem, so I was assuming (foolishly, perhaps!) that vaguely knew what I was doing.I followed the instructions and user experiences on this thread, I purchased this camera - and got off to work.Even though everything seemed fine when adding the camera to the system, a strange thing happened after I rebooted (I run Linux Mint 16): neither the webcam, nor the thinklight were now working. After lots of testing, I assumed I must have just destroyed part of the cable during installation, and so I purchased this cable (Lenovo ThinkPad X200 LCD Video Cable 44C9909) and tried again. Same result! The only difference is that the first time round, an "lsusb" command on linux would return a Ricoh product (and I assume that's the webcam), but it would still not be recognised by Mint, while now, there's nothing. In both cases, the Thinklight didn't work.Since both the thinklight and the webcam come out at the same end (see the right end of the cable on this picture) I am assuming, of course, that the two are related.Would anyone know which of the clips on the left end of the cable on the same picture, abov...

Hi,

I recently installed skype on my laptop and when I began a video conversation my webcam doesn't show anything.
This is also the same when i open up Cyberlink youcam software as this too fails to respond?

Is there any possible solutions to this problem?

Have you tried running the webcam program that came with the computer to make sure that it works?
Also, does skype have a way of identifying your webcam? That might be necessary.

I recently had to re-install windows, and therefore had to re-instal my webcam. It worked fine before but now won't work .

The model is: Maxim Digital Camera MX30-50, my windows OS is Windows98

It can be used as a webcam and also as a camera.
I can take photos with it and upload them no problem.. but when I use the webcam (and i have tried it with various programs that i've used before with it), it simply doesnt load. It freezes whatever application I tried to run it in.

When I run in the application "PCCam" I get the error that it cannot run preview graph. I've tried reinstalling the software and the driver multiple times but still no result.

Any ideas to get it running would be appreciated, thank you in advance


edit: also forgot to say it is a USB Camera.. but I do know that the USB cable is working because I can get photos from it

So, for a while now, my webcam hasn't been working! Now, I'm not a newbie when it comes to computers but webcams aren't really my thing... I've tried reinstalling the software and troubleshooting in Device Manager (which tells me it's working properly.) The way I've tested to see if it's working otherwise is by attempting to take a new profile picture on Skype. It has the spinning wheel of death, then after 20 seconds or so, it suddenly starts working, then starts getting kind of laggy, then after 3 seconds of laggyness, dies - stuck on the last image it sent...

My computer is a Samsung RF511-S02 with 4GB additional RAM that I installed...
The webcam is called WebCam SCB-1100N.

My inability to solve this problem is infuriating, especially since I bought this computer Summer '11!

So the problem is with Skype? Did you uninstall and reinstall? Are you running the latest version? Is it with all calls at all times of the day, or just one person?

Hey, so my webcam has been working fine until about two weeks ago. Ever since then it's working on and off when I open applications that need the webcam. I have a Compaq Presario CQ61-330SA. I've tried looking on the Compaq website but my laptop model isn't showing up for some reason.

Basically when I try to open my webcam it gives me the option to choose my webcam but then no picture shows up and it says that there is no webcam connected or that there is no webcam activity. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but so far that hasn't worked. I have no idea what to do?
 

A:Webcam won't work!

"I've tried looking on the Compaq website but my laptop model isn't showing up for some reason."

That often happens if you go to the wrong regional website for that model, as different model numbers are used in different countries. Use the appropriate Compaq website for your country, then download & install the webcam driver for that model.

Go here and select the appropriate country using the drop-down list at top-right: http://www.compaq.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html

Hi there,

I have recently bought a webcam for the first time. It's called "Dual Mode USB Camera Plus" and, it's made by puretek.com.tw (p/n PT-6009) I should say I bought this camera because, I have an old computer and the camera has a min. req. of Pentium 166 Mhz processor (mine is a P200) Anyhow when I install the application and the software(either auto or manual) and, then try to open the cam or software I get a 'blue screen' and, my system crashes?

My first though was that the camera must be faulty so, I mailed it back to the retailer. They tested the cam on their systems and found no faults - mailed it back to me with the report that all was okay. I set-up my camera again and no difference from previous time. So, I thought maybe something wrong with my computer I ran Norton Systemworks/utilities 2001 and, it fixed all minor problems as it always does - I also did a full defrag and scandisk.

It has to date not made any difference at all my system still crashes?. I have even been to the Puretek website and downloaded the drivers in case the ones on the CD-Rom are faulty - no difference again ? Also the camera powers up alright and, that's about it.

The only possible thing I can think of now is, could it be because my system was originally a Win95 machine and, that I have upgraded to Win98se and, that during installation it asks me to insert the Win98se CD-Rom to complete installation and, I only have the Win98se Upgrade disk ?

I bought a Pavillion x2 10-k006na  Win 8.1 last year with a view to taking advantage of the free upgrade to Win 10. I did install this and it all worked very well and I am pleased with Win10. I was not interested in the camera functionality till about 8 months ago when I installed Skype I discovered the camera did not work. I contacted HP suppport and found them very helpful they told me the camera driver was out of date and they remotely downloaded the new driver but that did not work either. I have spent the time since then contacting HP on many occasions but this more or less ended when they told me that they were not responsible for a change in the OS software now being different from what I purchased (Win 8.1) and therefore that is what they would support. Now I stress here that they did assist me with Win 10 for several months but did not get the camera to work. I being a bit of a dog with a bone kept returning to this problem. I did eventually find that I could get the camera to work with the original camera drive Intel(R) Imaging Signal Processr 2400 dated 01/08/2014.

I'm not quite sure I understand the problem here.

You say you can see yourself fine, but not the other person?

If you can see yourself, and the other person can see you, this is not a problem with your webcam at all. If you cannot see the other person, that is something wrong either with your software (MSN/Yahoo!), or a hardware problem on their end.

However, I'm going to assume it's actually your webcam not working (As in the other person cannot see you)

Alright, after taking a look for your PC/Laptop online, I actually can't track down a Compaq Presario F600. As shown here, it goes from F500 to F700, with no product page or drivers for a "F600" computer. You'll have to clarify this.

Anyways, I've found a "universal" HP/Compaq Webcam driver available for download here if you'd like to give that a try.

Hi, i've tried to search for a similar topic on the forum.. maybe its already been talked about but i havent found any solution yet...

I recently bought this webcam
http://www.uptec.com.hk/product/ipro/iprc NV-236m.htm

it says it should work with vista... and all the im programs out there..
so i installed the drivers from the cd.. and it does work...
however... only with AmCap (which is the only thing that came with it)
so i can get a video capture from AmCap...
but the program is that i cant seem to connect with Msn, Yahoo Messenger, QQ or just anything else at all...

so beside using this camera as a video capture tool....
i cant use it to web chats or just any type of video conferencing...

So if anyone knows of something i could do to make it work..
please... enlight me..

once again.. thanks for your time...

Hello, I have an HP Pavilion dv6 and I am running windows 10 Home 64 bit system. I am trying to get Skype to work and it cannot find my webcam. We have a Cyberlink YouCam preinstalled with the computer and I have done all necessary updates to the webcam from the Cyberlink website. Any help to get this up and running would be great - my husband has an interview to do via skype early next week.
