Hi. I've already tried resolving my problem by contacting the official Dell and Alienware support but nobody seems to be able to help me. I recently purchased an Alienware M14X-R2 which came preinstalled with Windows 8. While everything else works fine, the system does not seem to be detecting the in-built webcam at all. Device Manager does not show me any Imaging Device. I have also checked the Dell website and no webcam driver appears to be available for Windows 8. The webcam driver installation tool for Windows 7 doesn't work either. Finally, I have tried updating the BIOS as well. This does not resolve my problem either. Can anyone help me fix this, please?

I have an hp pavilion that I had gotten a few months back and the webcam has been working fine up until recently. I went to go and turn it on and it comes back with a webcam not detected error message. I went and tried to update the driver. Uninstall and reinstalled and I keep getting the same message. I uninstalled all messengers or anything that could be using it too and still nothing. I ran a system restore also but that still did not work, i am very quickly running out of ideas.
 

A:Webcam not detected

If something else was using the webcam you wouldn't get the "not detected" error, so uninstalling messenger software etc. was never going to fix it. Did you check in Device Manager to see if there is an entry for the webcam? Even with no driver present, it would still be listed there under "Imaging Devices" as an unknown device with a yellow question mark.

If it's not listed there at all, with or without a driver installed, then it means the webcam itself is faulty/broken.

Hi Tilde8, Welcome to Lenovo Community!
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with camera on your Lenovo Y70.

Have you check if the driver is installed properly from device manager, if installed check if it is enabled from setting. 
Press Windows + C to enter the charms bar and go to PC setting select privacy and go to Web-camera option and check if it switches ON.

Check with this option and let us know the findings. Hope this helps.
Best regards,

Good Day:

My laptop is a HP2000-210 notebook. I run a LinuxMint 17.1 cinnamon/Rebecca 64bit O.S. I have "cheese" & VLC available for webcam operation.

Every once-in-a-while the webcam will operate through "cheese"; albeit for only 7 seconds to about 2-2 1/2 minutes. Then it shuts down and error reports "No Device Found" or "Error Playing Video". In VLC, it's error reports "VLC is unable to open the MRL 'v4l2://'. Check the log for details." I've even tried guvcview and it's error report is "check for correct drivers". I've been to/on just about every Linux/Ubuntu forum I can find. I've been to/on HP~Linux forum.

Did you ensure the driver was the 64-bit version?

If it definitely was the correct driver, it's possible the actaul webcam has failed. A driver won't install if the related device has failed to the point where the system (and therefore the driver) can no longer detect it.

I got the Envy 14 late January and I've loved it thus far. However, I went to use Skype a few days ago, and my webcam would not work. Instead, the HP MediaSmart software popped up, and even when I closed that Skype wouldn't work. Opening up just MediaSmart Webcam gives me the error message, "No webcam detected. Try plugging in a webcam into your computer now. If you are using and integrated webcam, try turning it on." My webcam is integrated, and I have the sneaking suspicion that it got uninstalled somehow. Now the red light wont even come on no matter how hard I try.I uninstalled and reinstalled Skype,I have searched the net for it's software, but have had no luck. I reinstalled the MediaSmart Webcam software off of both Recovery and the HP website,I also found my laptop and looked at all of the drivers but could not find one listed for my webcam.I went to Device Manager, (there is no Imaging Devices section), looked under the Sound, Video, Game controllers and found Webcam Splitter (with a speaker icon next to it though), updated those driversI clicked Detect Hardware Changes everywhere in Device Manager... And still no luck. I really don't want to do a system restore because I'm not sure what I would lose, or if it would even work. And please no factory restore!!! From prior knowledge I think I have the HP TrueVision HD Webcam. Thank you in advance.

ok so code 43 is always generated when there is a hardware or software issue( which you have already try to install) usually by doing a cold shutdown of your computer or taking the battery out for some few seconds does correct it but if all that is not fixing it try disabling the device in control panel or you can roll back to the previous driver and allow windows to scan for hardware changes.one question did you do any changes to the computer before this started happening?

Hi Everyone -
 
So I've tried using my built-in webcam the last few nights, as I recently have had to do online conference calls for work. The webcam was working just fine a few months ago the last time I used Skype, and this was the first attempted use since then. We use Adobe Connect, and when I tried to start my camera, it said no camera was detected. I started my YouCam software that came on the computer and it also said there was no camera detected.
 
I was going to post a screenshot of Device Manager, but the forum won't let me. So - under Imaging Devices, there is no webcam, just my printer. Under 'Sound, Video, and Game Controllers' there's the following: Conexand SmartAudio HD, Cyberlink WebCam Virtual Driver, and Intel® Display Audio.
 
The CyberLink Webcam Virtual Driver is purported to be up-to-date.
The lenovo website had a page for this problem, and said that if the camera didn't show up under Imaging Devices, I needed to contact a support center. But I'm not under warranty anymore and I don't want to have to pay them to fix something that shouldn't have broken.
 
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad U310 running Windows 7.
 
If anyone could help me resolve this, I'd be really grateful. I know I could probably just go buy an external webcam, but it rankles to go buy something that supposedly came with my laptop.
 
Thanks!

By default, Device Manager shows a device if it's connected and powered on.
> None of those hardware IDs are your web cam
> Look through Dev Manager under imaging device, USB devices and see if any "Other" device entries. Anything look like your cam? Any line item with a yellow icon (Other then the Ethernet and Network controller devices)

If not, then check if any way to power/on off the cam. Any on/off functions or switches on your laptop for the cam. If not, the cam must have failed. Unfortunately, I see alot of that problem on this forum

I just got my computer back from the shop to fix a few problems [which they didn't], and now I found a problem I never had before: my Yahoo! Messenger cannot detect my built in webcam. I'm not sure how this happened, it's worked like a charm for years now, and now I can't use it. I was told to go to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager -> Imaging Devices, but my camera never showed up, the only program that shows up is WSD Scan Device. I tried to do the "set up voice and video" in Yahoo, but it only detected my microphone and speakers, not my camera. I think my software is called Cyberlink YouCam, but I can't even do anything with it now because my camera cannot be detected.

A:My BUILT-IN webcam can't be detected?

I have a Sony Vaio and all of a sudden I've been trying to open up my webcam in ArcSoft Web Companion, and I keep getting a message that says "A webcam is not found or working properly." I look in Device Manager and don't even see the webcam in there. I'm not sure what could have happened to make the webcom become "disconnected" Does anybody have any advice on how to fix this?

A:Webcam not detected - Sony Vaio

bjacks9,
I would think that unless the camera hardware has failed Windows update has installed an incompatible driver. I would start by following instructions here;

Don't know which model VAIO you have but procedure should be the same.

I've been working on this webcam issue of mine for about the past five hours now. I've literally gone through, deleted off Lifeframe, Virtual Camera, Smart Logon, downloaded the drivers and keep getting an error "USB2.0 UVC VGA/1.3m/2.0M WebCam" every time I try running any of the drivers for it. I'm frustrated because I just installed a new one thinking my old one was perhaps defective. I've checked BIOS and haven't seen anything in reference to webcam, there's no imaging devices section in my Device Manager and I'm just completely confused as to what the heck is wrong.

If I can put any more information to be more assisting in my issue I will but for now this is all I've got.

I looked through the trend and another similar one before asking. I don't want to be an inconvenience but the things I tried through this trend and the other one did little to help. Perhaps I'm not doing it right?

My built-in camera for my laptop suddenly stopped working some time back. I found out when I was using this one website to take pictures like I always do and it told me camera not detected. It told me on Skype as well. I ran problem devices and it only detected printer problems; it does not detect problems with my cam.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit.
6.1.7601 Service Pack 1, Build 7601
System Model AO756

If I go to: Device Manager and under Images the options to pick are - Xerox Phaser 3635MFP WIA, and Xerox WorkCentre/Pro WIA scanner. I don't think those are camera options.

I am at my wits end and have been trying to fix it for two months. Thank you beforehand for taking your time to read.
 

A:Built in Webcam - Not Detected or Not Working

If there is a warning or error in Device Manager that may be the web cam and it may just need a driver.

Else there is a small chance it somehow got disabled in the BIOS (Setup), so check in there.

Most likely the web cam died.

Are you using the Acer OEM version of Windows that shipped on your computer? 
 
You can try reloading the software and driver for the camera using erecovery. I am providing a video link below.

A:LG Notebook Built In webcam Not Detected

i would remove the external webcam from the device manager if it shows up there then try re enabling the onboard one and see what happens. If that does nothing; i would uninstall the onboard one completely; reboot; then let windows hopefully redetect the built in webcam. Try that and see what happens.
