Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11e :Integrated Camera ( Webcam ) doesn't show up on Device Manager List I've just recently bought a reaconditioned laptop, Lenovo Thinkpad  Yoga 11e (20DA) wich originally had Windows 8.1 Pro installed but sold with Windows 10 Pro installed. I've changed the HDD for a 120GB SSD (i do really recommend this) and installed from scrath Windows Pro N that automatically got updated to 1709 Anniversary version.

The problem happens in both windows store apps and .exe programs. Camera doesn't work in Chrome, Edge,Skype(both store and .exe). I recently gave my laptop in for servicing at an authorized service center(Just a speaker issue). Could it be that they could have unplugged the camera cable? I also saw a post referring to the same laptop but in that post only store apps had this problem. Already tried reinstalling driver, enabling permissions etc. If I remember correctly this problem started after the fall creators update. When the camera is used the white led does blink, even though an image doesn't show. Please help me with this.

Since I installed windows 7 the mic on my webcan doesn't work. When I try to use skype it tells me the mic is muted. HELP

A:Mic on webcam doesn't work

Does the microphone show up in device manger? (Click start and type device manager) Do you have anything with a yellow exclamation point in a yellow warning sign?

If not right click the speaker logo in the bottom right corner of your PC and select recording devices. Double click your microphone and select the levels tab on the window that pops up. Make sure its turned up all the way. Boost should be on zero percent.

Another thing to check is skype's settings at the top, then select microphone and make sure its not set to windows default device, as well as its not actually muted.

I bought this computer (a lenovo ideapad 320s 14iKB) a couple of weeks back and I've used the f8 button, which turns the camera off and on. But today it wouldn't turn on when I hit the button. Usually a grey logo of a camera with a line going through it would appear, but it doesn't anymore. The camera seems to be deactivated and nothing seems to be able to activate it again. I've looked through device management which shows that the camera should be working fine and I've tried updating the driver, but nothing seems to work. What do I do?

Hi! My mother bought this laptop a couple of years ago, and after a year and a half or so it started having problems with some software (you know how mothers are!), so she gave it to a neighbour of hers so that he would format it and reinstall Windows. Originally, the laptop came with Windows 8, and for reasons I don't know, this neighbor deleted all the HDD partitions and install Windows 7 instead; that means you have no way of performing a factory reset. From that moment on, the camera stopped working; it doesn't even appear in the device manager. All other features - audio, video, WiFi, etc. - work properly; it's just the camera which has the problem. So my mother talked to me about this, and I've been trying to solve this issue without success. I tried installing Windows 10; nothing. I tried installing Windows 8.1; nothing. I tried installing the camera drivers, but it says there's nothing to install the driver to. I've read that some people recommend an activation of the camera via BIOS, but I'm unable to find such an option in the BIOS of this computer. Others recommend a Fn + Esc sequence that, to be honest, doesn't even do anything. The thing is that I'm getting crazy with this stuff, and that's why I'm asking you people whether you can help me with this. I'll appreciate any comments regarding this. Thank you in advance!!

Hi All, Thank you. I am brand new to this forum and sincerely hope somebody smarter than me can help!!!! I just purchased a used HP 6555b Probook with a fresh COA copy of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. This laptop has an integrated webcam but i cannot get it to work. Here is what i have done: checked in Device Manager under Imaging devices and it IS there. When I select it it says it is "working properly" and I tried to update the driver and it is already up to date. I downloaded BOTH the HP Media Smart software and the YouCam software and NEITHER of them have an image from the webcam. I tried to Skype and when I go to Tools, Video it has the USB2.0 camera listed and selected but NO video. So I plugged in my old external Logitech USB camera and when I select it I DO get an image on Skype. I cannot for the life of my figure out anything else to do to get my integrated webcam to work. Oh, I also disabled it in device manager, rebooted, and then enabled it. Again it said it was "operating properly." What am I doing wrong? How can I get this to work? I really wanted to get away from an external webcam, which is why I bought this laptop - ARGGGGG! I feel like I tried everything but apparently not, what i am I missing? Thanks!!!!!

(Info: I consider myself completely technically illiterate so please excuse some things I say )

I bought a laptop off a family member which has a built in webcam, however tried to use it recently and get a message saying I have no webcam. I know there is one as I can see it on the top of my laptop. I went into device manager and there is no webcam bit in there. As if this camera has no webcam. I tried searching for drivers on makes website but they are completely useless and you cant find anything on there. Tried searching for drivers but every place I got to I have no idea what to look for. Tried downloading bison cam but it sent me to asus which is of no use because my laptop is a zoostorm.
its a w76k according to the sticker on the bottom, but everywhere I search I can not find anything at all about this make and model. iit is running windows 7 if that makes any difference

Can anybody assisst me with this?

A:Built in webcam doesn't work.

provided the webcam is not faulty, when it's driver is missing you should see a red or yellow error mark in Device Manager against "Unknown Device" or "Imaging Device". If there are no error marks, that's bad news as it means the webcam isn't even being detected, so it could be broken internally.

As regards laptop drivers, I always direct people to the laptop manufacturer's support website since they can be trusted to provide the correct drivers. Unfortunately CMS/ZooStorm customer support for existing ZooStorm owners is practically non-existent. I can find no driver-download page on their website. All they seem interested in is selling new computers.

I bought my toshiba Satellite S50-B-12R this saturday but from the moment i couldn't use my webcam.

I've looked everywhere for drivers for my webcam but i can't find them.
Also when i look in my configuration window it doesnt find a webcam.

But one time my webcam did work i was on skype and it detected my webcam so i used it and then when i tried to use it later it wasnt detected anymore.

So i want to know if there are missing drivers or maybe the webcam isn't correctly connected inside the device. And what i need to do to be able to use my webcam



A:Satellite S50-B-12R - Webcam doesn't work

First of all the notebook was already preinstalled with Toshiba image and all drivers and software were installed too.
Therefore additional driver installation isn?t necessary.

Secondly the preinstalled Win 8.1 system contains the webcam driver. The driver is designed by Microsoft and part of the system.

The Win 8.1 provides an webcam app which you could find on the Win 8.1 surface.
But before using the app, you have to add the webcam access and change the privacy settings.

Open charm bar (Win key + C) -> settings -> permissions -> enable webcam & microphone

Now close and open the webcam app again. You should have your camera app working fine now

Welcome to the Seven Forum.

You don't specify the model number of the webcam but it could be a compatibility problem. See if your webcam is on this list from Windows 7 Compatibility Center. (Check both pages.)

I use a server push program to upload a still image every 60 seconds or so with my web cam. I use ChillCam, YawCam and have recently tried Willing Webcam, but I can't get any of them to work with Vista. These programs all worked find with XP so I assume I'm just screwing up some security setting that Vista has, but I can not figure out what it is.

The program itself works fine, but the actual upload fails. The program appears to have uploaded the image, but it never shows up on the server or in the page. I allowed access to th programs and java in my virus protection console and I even turned my firewall off. Alas, it still doesn't work.

Had my webcam set up and working great - Logitech Quick Cam Pro 4000.
The webcam "on" light always came on every time I started the computer and
stayed on all the time.

Downloaded the latest software from Logitech to make sure it was current,
installed the software, started using it with Tokbox.
Sent a number of video emails to friends, everything worked fine.

Was gone for a week, when I came home and fired up the PC the camera
wouldn't stay "on" like it always had before.

When I open Tokbox, the camera light then comes on.
When trying to do a video email, the video part works, but there's no sound.
No sound indicated when recording. The Logitech camera program opens
for changing settings, etc. It all works fine while adjusting. When I close the
adjusting window, the camera shuts down. Will start again when I try to make
a video email, but only the video works, no sound.

When I "Test" it on the Tokbox camera adjust, both the video and sound work fine,
and there's an indication that sound is working and I can hear the test sound.. As soon as I close the Test window, the sound quits.

When I uninstalled and reinstalled the camera software, a window came up
saying the camera was in use by some other app, of course it didn't say what.
That was the only time I saw that.

I can't find anything else on my computer that uses the webcam. Doesn't

I have a 6yr old Satellite P500-16T laptop (serial: 3A037753W) on which I installed windows 10 64bit as soon as it became available. I didn't need to use the webcam until now, so I don't know if it worked after I installed the new windows, but now it definitely doesn't work. I searched for the driver, but when it asked me about the OS I have there was only up to win 7 (32bit 64bit). I tried installing both but nothing happens.
I was instructed by someone else that it might have something to do with the windows 7 anniversary edition bug, but I followed the steps to fix the registry and I didn't have the registry entry they mentioned here: http://www.techrepublic.com/article/...on-webcam-bug/
Is there anyway to fix my webcam or is it not compatible anymore with win10?

Hi,I have B50-80 80LT laptop. Several weeks ago its built-in camera stopped working on skype and since that time I couldn't manage to make it work again. Later I installed 'Lenovo Settings' application from the Windows store and on that application camera works without problem but on the skype it doesn't work anymore. I deleted and installed the skype and camera drivers again but it didn't work. I think the reason camera stopped working is windows 10 or skype update at that time because I remember they were updated themselves before camera stopped working. ?This is the situation when I open up the camera on skype. It shows loading always. I will be appreciated if you help me.Thank you.

Alright, so here's the deal. I have a Vivicam 20 Dual-Mode still camera with webcam capabilities. I recently got a new computer (HP Media Center PC m7470n; Windows XP Media Center Edition) to replace my old computer (Dell Dimension 8100 running WinXP home). For some reason, my new web camera does not work on instant messaging programs (MSN 7.5 and AIM 5.5) even though it worked on my old computer for both programs. Here's all I've found:
Both "Dual-Mode DSC (Still Camera)" and "Dual-Mode DSC (Video Camera)" show up under Imaging Devices in Device Manager. Neither have a yellow "!" next to them. It had been mentioned that having another imaging device connected (a scanner for instance) can cause a conflict, but the scanner connects via a parallel port and appears under "Other Devices" with no conflicts, I have no other such devices connected or installed (except for another, much more useless camera which I used for testing and got the same results and no conflicts.)

Un-installing/re-installing drivers/cleaning the registry of all "vivicam" entries does not fix the problem.

Using the latest drivers does not fix the problem.

I have tried all three (two?) USB hubs on my computer, including one with no other devices connected to it (or at least ones which have none connected either laterally or vertically).

It's supposed to work with keeping finger on item some time, then release after that (it will open menu or just right-click). That doesn't work. It spoils all of the touch screen mode experience. (Surfing Youtube, for example) How do I get it to work? Please note that some areas it works, some it doesn't (e.g., on this website and on Youtube and on Facebook, it doesn't). Please answer. EDIT: It is the Chrome browser. Any idea how I can fix that?
