Wifi and Camera not working on Lenovo G50-45 80e300rgin

Q: Wifi and Camera not working on Lenovo G50-45 80e300rgin

I bought the laptop Lenovo G50-45 80e300rgin and installed Windows 8.1 on it. The problem is that when i launch the camera app it shows that 'No camera found' whereas the camera driver was installed successfully. The other problem is that there is no trace of wifi when searching for it whereas wifi is turned on from the BIOS and the laptop is not on airplane mode. I later disocvered that Device Manager shows no wifi device. Please Help!!

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.)

hi priyamdubey ,

Welcome to Lenovo COmmunity Forums!!

Do you have any device under device manager that has a yellow symbol? as it may be the wireless without proper driver.

If the Wireless device is really not showing under device manager and it is on on BIOS, then it is a detection issue. the Wifi Device may not be physically detected by the computer,
Try restoring the bios to defaults by hitting F9 then F10 to save and exit.

The same might be happening to the Webcam

Hello, I have a new T530 with Windows 8 OS. I am having trouble using the integrated camera. It functions neither in the Windows camera app nor in Skype. In both cases I get a picture with a gray background and a camera with a line through it. In Device manager, the camera does appear, is enabled, and the drivers are up to date.After looking through other threads, I tried checking whether the camera was plugged in and indeed it was. When using Skype and I set the camera to on (Skype did detect the camera), I still got the gray no camera image, but the green light on the camera itself turned on.I also tried using Fn+F6 to check settings. Lenovo settings opens, but the when I click the camera settings Icon, the screen loads a blank page that says "Camera" in the top right and has a back button (left pointing arrow) in the top left hand corner. The back button does not seem to work and I must change the window to something else in order to exit/close settings.I tried manually installing both camera drivers and "power management" ("energy management"?) drivers. Neither of this solved either of these issues.Please help me to resolve this problem. Thank you.

Hi, euterpenc
 
I would make sure that the BIOS is up to date in the system. The current BIOS for your system is 2.07 and can be found here. Also, I would ensure that the chipset drivers are up to date, and those can be found here.
 
Hope it helps, and let me know how it goes
Adam

H guys, I have Lenovo G50-80, i7 and today my camera stopped working. I can see the light is on, but the screen is black. Occassionally the picture appears, but it's frozen. I tried updating drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the cam and drivers again, but nothing seems to be working. I ran diagnostics and this is what I got (attachment). Is it time to buy an external camera, or this one can be fixed? Thank you so much

The camera has been working with Skype.  Now not working and camera icon on Skype screen has line across it showing camera not working/available.   In Device Manager I have checked that the device is available (Lenovo EasyCamera).  I have checked privacy settings and camera is on.  I have downloaded an updated driver. The 'general' tab states 'This device is working properly'. My operating system is Windows 10.  Thank you SEJoseph - I have checked in Lenovo Settings and the camera icon has a slash through it.  I assume that means it is disabled.  If so how can I enable it? Problem solved - in Lenovo Settings - camera - set privacy to 'off'.  Camera now works with Skype.

Hi, I bought a new Lenovo ideapad 510-15IKB about a month ago. It has windows 10. When I click on camera app it says "we can't find your camera. Check to be sure it's connected and installed properly, that it isn't being blocked by antivirus software, and that your camera drivers are up-to-date. If you need it, here's the error code: 0xA00F4244(0xC00D36D5). I have first disabled my antivirus and tried, but that didn't work. 'I checked device manager and there I couldn't see "Imaging devices" under which camera should show up as far as I know. Then I installed the camera driver here[1] and restarted the laptop but still camera app wouldn't work and camera wasn't there under device manager. Any help to get this issue resolved would be appreciated.  [1] http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/lk/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/510-15IKB/downloads Thanks,Devni

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?

So i was given a laptop to repair, a Lenovo Z50-70 to be precise. So the guy said his Wifi and Ethernet weren't working (Error 45 in device manager (seems to suggest they arent connected which i don't understand considering its a laptop)). later, it "died" temporarily (as in, wouldn't boot or anything). It's decided to work again. I did a OS rollback to see if perhaps it was OS side. The problem is still occurring. I can use a phone to tether so i don't believe it's software related. (I'm yet to pull it apart to see if anythings been spilt for example). When i do attempt to reinstall drivers, it states the devices cant be found. (the devices were actually hidden in device manager). any ideas as to what could be the issue before i say mobo? (it seems the bios thinks it's 10 days ago too if that's relevant).

Specs:
i7-4510U
8gb DDR3
Nvidia 820m
1TB HDD
As far as im aware, it is stock from the shop. It's just out of it's 12 month warranty (as per usual).

So I did a bios update and reset to defaults, no change. I'm doing the OS reset, I'll check if it's there. If not, I'm gunna try upgrading to Windows 10 to see if that fixes the issue. I tried disabling the wifi card in the bios, thinking maybe disable reenable might do it possibly. No change.

Honestly this has me stumped haha. Like the driver installations can't find the hardware. I can tether with a phone. But the lan and wifi don't work. So strange.

A:Ethernet Wifi not working (not detected). Lenovo Z50-70

Your Subject line of "Ethernet Wifi not working (not detected)" speaks to 2 different things. Ethernet is the cable connection to a modem or router, Wi-Fi is the wireless connections to the modem or router. They use different adapters with the Ethernet socket being on the motherboard and the Wi-Fi adapter being plugged into a socket on the motherboard and 2 wires in the Display panel for the antenna. They usually use different drivers but do need the drivers installed for both devices to show up in Device Manager, Network adapters. Some Desktops may have the added Wi-Fi adapter. If a Notebook has Bluetooth wireless it usually is part of the Wi-Fi adapter. I usually boot to a Linux LiveDVD to check if the adapters still work as Linux tends to have support for a variety of devices, download an .iso file and use to burn the DVD.

One other thing, while the Ethernet can be disabled in the BIOS and also the Wireless adapter there usually is a switch or a key to turn the Wireless On or Off or maybe an Fn + another key to toggle it On or Off, similar to hardware control of Sound. Seems every brand and even some models within a brand do it different from others.

Hello everyone,  Since i got my Lenovo Y50, i have been having an issue rarely and i thought it would be better to try and fix it.I have had it on Windows 8.1 and now on Windows 10 also, when i start my computer, WiFi works flawlessly, but if I try and switch to another network on open the WiFi networks tab on the taskbar, it might happen that it kinda "freezes", meaning that it shows either that WiFi networks availalbe or not available but when i click on it nothing happens. I mean it doesnt pop up the select WiFi network window. And also if during this time i try to go to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Settings it doesn't open it. If i plug a LAN cable in it the internet works fine but the WiFi button still stays the same. Doesn't even change to the cable connection one. Also this sometimes happens when wifi is working but i notice that the icon changed to the above mentioned (WiFi networks availalbe or not available) and when i try clicking on the wifi button nothing pops up, meaning again i cant change the WiFi on disconnect. Funny thing is that every single time this happens, a restart fixes it. Every time so it really doesn't make sense to me and it baffles me that this can happen. I tried reinstalling drivers, looking for stable ones, etc. nothing helps. I will provide a picture with my device manager Network Adapters tab, i hope it helps. Any oppinions are welcome.

I have a very similar problem myself. Are you using Argus DVR Software by any chance? I get the same messages when I try to connect through their "tunnel server". I get a great picture when I connect through the internal IP address, and the old windows "bad connection" page when I try to use the external IP address. When I follow the clicks to investigate the problem it usually tells me that everything appears to be set up fine, but the computer won't respond to an outside connection.

I'll be watching this too, maybe my solution is out there as well.

What does Limited Connectivity mean and what should I check to enable a full connection so I can copy photos from the camera to PC via WiFi?

A:How to Connect a Camera using WiFi Direct?

You will always get that with a device like that. Especially if you already have the laptop connected to a wifi access point. Suggest you read Panasonic's instruction on how to connect to the camera through its Wif hotspot. This is the owners manual. http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMCGX7.PDF See pages 70 to 72.

I have had no problems with Win 7 computers finding my Canon G16 WiFi camera and connection it to them.
But my Win 8.1 system just can't find the camera to get it connected.

A:Win 8.1 can't find my Canon G16 WiFi camera.

This morning I started the Windows 8.1 computer and the router was connected and working. I also found the Canon G16 had been found yesterday, but it was not shown yesterday as being found. But it still will not connect to my G16, just can't connect to it. so again Windows 8.1 is failing to work as the Win7 systems do.

Hi, i am a complete novice when it comes to technology, however i recieved a new digital camera for my birthday with wifi capabilities. My wireless router has mac address filtering and so unless i turn it off i cant connect my camera to my wireless network, as i have no idea how to find my cameras MAC address? if it even has one. It cam with a CD manual, ive looked through that and still can seem to locate it. The camera is a samsung WB850F if that helps and my woreless router is a belkin?

Thank you for any advice
 

A:wifi camera how do i find a mac address?

Look on the box, may be a sticker on a camera itself.

Or you can disable that feature on the router (make note of all listed macs), connect camera and then pull its mac address from list of connected devices.
