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.)

Hello everyone, I have problem with built-in camera that is not working at all. I have a Lenovo G500 Laptop with operating system Windows 8 Pro (64-bit). My built-in camera is not working, Widows Photo app asks me to connect camera, and Skype reports that it hasn't found any camera device. When I go to Device Manager, there isn't such tab as "Imaging Devices" but there is a tab "Other Devices" where is one "Unknown Device". Device location is listed as "Port_#0004.Hub_#0005", device status reports: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)", and hardware ID says only "USB\DEVICE_DESCRIPTOR_FAILURE". I am almost sure that this is my malfunctioning camera.Automatically find drivers for it doesn't work. I've also tried uninstalling driver for that unknown device and run scan for recent hardware changes resulting only in re-appearing of mentioned unknown device. I've tried to download driver from http://support.lenovo.com/sk/sk/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-g-series-laptops/lenovo-g500-no... , however when I try to install it, an error message appears: "no appropriate driver to be installed". I've tried DriverScanner app as well. But this found only unknown device, just as Device Manager. I am sorry to bother you, but I am really hopeless now. Am I really forced to buy external camera or is there a solution fir this issue?

I am having an issue again with the built in camera of the z710 laptop.  I never cared for it before and this is my second attempt to try to get it to work. I have searched google and various forum topics, however nothing seems to work. The camera does show up under 'Cameras' in the device manager, but only if I select to 'Show Hidden Devices'. I have tried to install the windows generic driver as I found via a suggestion but this did not resolve the issue.  I am looking for any help in getting this fixed, anyone? I could use a USB camera, but I already am using all my ports and honestly, I don't want another device plugged in where I have to worry about more choords to move around. When I click on Properties of the greyed out camera it says: Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer. I do think the camera is reconized somehow because randomally the light next to the camera will flash green. This does happen very randomally when I use the laptop (Even when I'm not trying to actavate the camera, it's just a random green flash). I really hope that someone/anyone can help me!  Please!

While recording videos using the Lenovo Legion Y520 built in Camera with default Camera Application, the Camera/Camera Application keeps freezing.  Usually I can record one long video. After that, the Camera/Camera Application freezes after a minute to two minutes of recording use. Once the issue happens, I have to power cycle the notebook and even then the issue sometimes happens immediately. I tired using a third party application and the same thing keeps happening, which is leading me to assume it's probably the hardware and not that default Camera Application. I have done all the latest Windows and Lenovo updates to this point. Please help if possible.

I have done what is suggested on these pages:

Downloaded driver for EasyCam from site for my laptop
Added an extra key to the register EnableFrameServerMode =0x0

But starting Lenovo settings, it asked me to update it. Twice I've done that and it asks again to download updates.

My new netbook has a built in camera that I'd like to use - however, there doesn't appear to be any on-board software to do so.

When the netbook was new the camera would show up in "My Computer" but now it doesn't - which I believe was caused by my disabling a number of services. The only other cause I can think of would be the removal of bloatware, but I tried to be very careful when doing this by researching everything first.

Anyway, the OEM tech support was no help at all (send it in? sure thing - NOT!). Device Manager shows the camera as functioning properly. Can I simply install an app to use it?

If so, can anyone recommend a good piece of freeware so I can use the camera's basic functions (taking pictures and video)?

Thanks Much

Hi,

I've a brand new Satellite P50-B-11V. After one day I detected a problem with the built camera and microphone. The camera works fine and the microphone too if the camera is not connected. Connecting the camera boost the microphone to maximum creating a terrible noise...So it's impossible to use camera and microphone together. Reducing the microphone boost to 0% does not solve the problem.

Is this an hardware problem? Does someone have this problem too? Drivers problem?

This is very annoying and disappointing, a day after the purchase this happens! This is not acceptable even more in a laptop which is not cheap.

Thanks

I've recently been having some troubles with my built-in web cam. I have a Gateway LT series 1005u netbook with windows XP. When I first got it, the webcam worked just fine. I don't know what happened, but I didn't use it for a while and when I started using it again, it had some issues. If I made any sudden movements while using the webcam it would freeze, or if I moved the laptop/adjusted the moniter it would freeze, and I would have to refresh the internet browser I was using. Often times, it would display a striped pattern. I would restart the computer and then it would work fine. But just this evening, it didn't show up under the list of webcams, or my computer, but it showed on the Add/remove programs. I looked around for a bit and read somewhere that I should try uninstalling and re-installing the driver. I un-installed it but didn't realize I didn't know how to re-install it. Yeah, stupid. It still shows up on the add/remove programs page, though. I'm not sure how to get it working again.

A:cant get my built in camera to work

If you can see an error for "imaging device" in Device Manager, try re-installing the driver from the laptop maker's website.

If there is no error in Device Manager, and your webcam is not listed there, that's usually a sign that the webcam itself is faulty so Windows cannot detect it - effectively it doesn't exist any more.

A easy remedy is to buy an external webcam (Logitech, Microsoft or Creative). don't buy a cheap brand with an obscure name as it will not last long.

Hello Masters. I already upgraded my laptop so I could play Counter Strike: Source just like what you have told me on my previous post hehe

Now, I noticed that this laptop has a built-in camera. However, I checked add new scanner or camera device and was not able to locate this webcam. I checked Device Manager and seen something under 'Imaging Device' which is an HP Truevision HD. I was wondering if this is the build-in camera already? If it is, then how could I make it work? Do I need to install another program? I was trying to ask Google to no avail, unless I'm just quite noob with wholesome search techniques. Pardon me.

Or if it is not the HP Truevision, how could I know that this thing is still working or a display and needed to be ignored already? Moreover, I would like to thank you all in advance for checking this post and letting me know what to do. Sorry for this thing, just feeding my curiosity //humbly bows//

Hello Brain Trust, I just purchased a HP Envy laptop days ago and it has a built in Intel RealSense 3D Camera. The apps that come with the computer can't detect the 3D Camera at all. The device manager is telling me that it is functioning. I thought maybe there is a button or setting I am just missing to make this thing work. I can't tell. Or it could be something interal as the camera wasn't connected. the RealSense Training just says there is an issue connection with the camera and no error code or message is given past this point. I have been waiting for hours now to talk with HP Chat Support and the one time I got connected, I was quickly disconnected. So I figured I would try here. Since the computer is only days old. If there isn't an obvious easy fix; I am just going to return it. Thanks for any help or information you can send my way. Davey
