Lenovo z710 Built In Camera Fails

Q: Lenovo z710 Built In Camera Fails

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!

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?

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:
 

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

Nothing works.
 
But starting Lenovo settings, it asked me to update it. Twice I've done that and it asks again to download updates.
 
What gives?

A:Lenovo Z710 Upgrades ?

Good evening and welcome to the community.
 
Good news, and not-so-good news...
- Looking at your hardware maintenance manual: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?DocID=UM018924
manual page 56 shows your CPU to be socketed. Have a look at manual page 73 and you'll see the applicable CPUs. There are two i7s included.
- The discrete graphics support circuitry is soldered to the system board so it is not upgradeable.
 
Hope this helps.

Hello All,This weekend my Z710 seems to have become a brick!.  Some water has spilled on the cover but I am not sure if any seeped into the device.   While traveling, by car, my computer was nestled underneath my bike, which dribbled some water from the water bottle onto the computer.  Later I tried to boot the computer and had no response what so ever.  The battery should have been fully charged but still I thought that perhaps the battery drained whil in my car.  I plugged in to power but still no response.  Normally I see a little light on the front to indicate power, or charging, this time I didn't see a thing not a flicker of LEDs, or a flash on the screen.  I tried removing the battery and booting with just the power brick.  Still nothing. I removed the battery and the power supply and let it sit overnight.  Still nothing. I found a suggestion to perform a hard boot: Remove battery and power and hold the power button for 60 seconds, then try again with just power.  Still nothing. I am hoping there is something I can do to but I do not know what that might be.  Any suggestions? Thanks all. Not that it matters but it is a dual boot linux and windows 10.

Hi to evreyone! So recently I bought a brand new Lenovo Z710 (i7-4700mq, intel hd 4600 and nvidia gt745m). I then installed windows 8.1 (genuine) and all the drivers on the cd that came with the machine. But it seems there is a big problem with the graphics card. Nvidia gt745 seems like its not there. The Geforce Experience and nvidia control panel fail to recognize it, although it's there on Windows Driver Manager.When I try to load a game (WOW) it crashes on the loading screen. "Display driver has stopped responding..." bubble appears and a minute or so afterwards, there is a bsod. The game works on the integrated card (intel hd 4600) when nvidia is disabled or its driver is uninstalled.I tried reinstalling the drivers, downloading and installing the recent ones, removing all graphic drivers and reintalling them in different order, tried safe mode, changed some bios settings, but still nothing happened.Could this be any kind of driver compatibility issue or simply a windows thing, or is it a hardware problem? Could the nvidia be faulty or the laptop itself? I want to try anything before turning it back to where I bought it for a look... So your ideas will be vastly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey, I have an afterglow headset for gaming. It has a line out 3mm headphone jack on it, and a USB.
Usually, the USB controls the Mic, and the headphone jack controls the audio. But when I plug it in, the sound is coming through the USB (Chat volume), unless I plug it into another power source, like a wall charger for phones. Than the sound will come through the headphone/Line out jack, allowing me to use the Bass boost feature. My brother has the same headset, and it does the same on my computer, and I have no idea why. The sound sounds like garbage coming through the USB. Also my laptop only has one Line out jack. I think the Line in and Line out jacks are combined into one. I don't know if that is messing it up.
So when I have the USB and Line out plugged into my laptop, the sound level is controlled by moving the adjuster to the "Chat" volume, rather than the "Game volume". But if I plug the USB into a wall wart, and the headphone jack into the laptops line out jack, it's normal and controlled by the game volume adjuster on the headset. But than the MIC won't work since it's through the USB.
Any ideas??

Hello everybody. I can't get my laptop operate at CPU turbo frequency any more! I got my Z710 with windows 8.1 preloaded. The laptop came with Intel's i7 4710 MQ CPU (2.5 GHz base freq, 3.5 GHz max turbo freq) and I could let the processor go up to the turbo frequency using lenovo's pre-installed energy manager software. I then upgraded my OS to windows 10 through microsoft update, keeping the energy manager which was compatible with the new version of windows and everything kept working OK. With the energy manager's high performance option, CPU single core frequency went up to 3.49 GHz (tested with CPU-Z and Si Sandra). However, after getting a new SSD I did a clean install of windows 10 and tried to do the same thing with windows built-in power management (since lenovo doesn't provide a power manager for windows 10 as far as I know) and it doesn't work. With the "High Perdormance" option and minimum processor state = maximum processor state = 100%, the speed never goes over 2.5 GHz. Is there some extra configuration I need to make or do I need extra software like intel's XTU or something like that?Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ich möchte gerne Ubuntu auf USB im Live-Modus, also von USB, testen. Dazu wird empfohlen entweder die Startreihenfolge zu ändern oder im gesonderten Startmenü USB auszuwählen. Problem: mein Gerät (Z710) bietet zwar an, im UEFI-Modus von USB zu booten, das Startmenü des Bootmanagers bietet aber kein USB an. Von USB bootet der PC nur, wenn ich im Windows die erweiterten Startoptionenn einstelle. Das ist mir aber zu Aufwand, denn ich möchte ja nicht erst Windows starten, um dann später Ubuntu starten zu können. Der Start im Legacy-Modus führt zwar über den USB-Boot direkt zu Ubuntu; Windows 10 lässt sich dann aber nicht mehr so schön starten; (Ruckler, Fehlermeldungen etc.) Sonstige Rahmenbedingungen: Windows 10 64bit (Version 1607), Secureboot deaktiviert. Also, nochmal meine Frage: Warum lässt sich der PC unter UEFI mit deaktiviertem Secureboot nicht sofort und ohne Umweg über erweiterte Startoptionen von USB starten?

Hello,I'm having problem with my graphics card Nvidia GeForce 840M and need help or advise.The laptop is a 17" IdeaPad Z710 with dual GPU: Intel HD 4000 and Nvidia GeForce 840M running on Windows 10.After some time the display started showing artifacts (moving dots and lines) when displaying 3D graphics. The problem appears even on the Nvidia control panel / 3D settings (Adjust image settings with preview). See the attached screenshot.All application (mainly games) using NVidia for 3D graphics are suffering from this problem.I can select default GPU for each application, so I noticed that some games are running OK with the Intel GPU and having this problem with Nvidia. But strangly enought, some games have the same problem with both GPUs.So, I believe is more a config/driver issue. All driver seems to be up to date.I did not paid attention what triggered this problem, since the laptop is mainly used by my son.I would appreciate any help, advise, assistance to diagnose and possibly resolve this problem.Thanks!

My Lenovo Ideapad Z710 works just fine most of the time, but when I try to play games, first some individual pixels and as time goes on the entire screen starts flickering until it?s almost impossible to play. If I turn off my graphics card, a NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M , it worked fine again. Now first of all, it would be nice to know whether anyone knows what the cause of this first problem is and how to fix it, as I would like to be able to use my regular graphics card when playing (enables me to play on a higher resolution). Added to that, I?ve now noticed that on other games, there is a flickering, without the pixel flickering first, no matter whether or not I deactivate my graphics card. Anyone have an idea where this problem could stem from?
