T440p Webcamera not detected

Q: T440p Webcamera not detected

Hi I have a Lenovo T440p computer and my webcamera software seems to be installed and work, but it is not detected by my computer. The computer system is Windows 10 and I have never used the camera before. I installed the software, but it did not seem to be detected as it did not appear in the device manager controls. Am I missing something?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm very annoyed with problems that have occurred after downloading Windows 10. My Dell Integrated Webcam no longer works. I followed the instructions for trouble shooting (uninstall/install, update driver etc)  and after 30+ minutes it is still
not working.  And no it is not a Windows 7 or earlier webcam.  Also, I cannot download my DirecTV application since the November update.  I tried trouble shooting this for several days and even called DirecTv technical who finally stated Windows
10 is causing problems with this application.

re: communications problems.
I would like to utilize SKYPE for voice/video communications, but the program states that the camera is being used by another program, even though no other program is running. I have no problems with the camera (VEO moble/advanced web camera) when running, eg Yahoo messenger. How might I rectify the problem? Thank you

I had a problem getting the Toshiba Webcamera working in windows 7/64 bit. The driver installed, but in appeared as "toshiba web camera" under "universal serial bus devices" instead of under "Imaging devices" (see pics below). As a result, applications such as skype aren't able to use the camera.

My fix was:

Click on Toshiba Web Camera
Action --> Update Driver Software -->Browse my Computer for Driver Software --> Let me pick from a list...--> USB Video Device

Then, magically, the correct driver installed and "Toshiba Web Camera" appeared under "Imaging Devices" and skype worked.

This took me 4 hours to figure out, so I hope it helps someone else out there ;)

I have two issues, which I think are related. In the Device Manager, it shows under USB Controllers "Unknown device". "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

I tried updating the driver, but the driver was correct.

I tried disabling the device.

I uninstalled the device. Windows reinstalled it at next boot, but the problem reappeared.

There is no Imaging Devices in the Device Manager.

At the same time, my webcam failed to open. Message "Webcamera initialization failed."

I downloaded the correct webcam program from Toshiba, installed it, but same result.

This all started when I uninstalled and reinstalled Skype. I have tried uninstalling it again, but still no webcam.

The webcam is enabled in the BIOS.

I really do not want to reinstall Windows.

All help appreciated.

Hello, I have a T440p. It has an SSD drive that it came with originally. Now I wish to secure erase it. I've tried with the ThinkPad Drive Erase Utility but when I try to boot with it I only get the following error message:ERROR: This utility works for Disk Encryption Drive or Solid State Drive only. I've confirmed that the SSD functions normally, so it's odd that the erase utility won't recognize it. The web page for the utility specifically says it supports T440p. I've also tried with Parted Magic, but it only says that the drive is "unsupported". Does anyone have any advise on what to do here?

Before I buy and install an M.2 card, I wanted to ask just what do I need to know or do before and after the installation. The installation itself is basically simple but I'm not real sure how to set it up or what it can be used for? Do I really need it? I've read several articles about this and found more confusion. Some claim to use it as a boot drive for storing Windows, while others claim it is only good for existing drive cache. I'm wondering if adding the M.2 will even be of any use or improvement to me. Does anyone know anything about this? Please keep it like me, very simple. I'm not even sure which one to get for my T440p. I found this.. will it work fine? Lenovo SK hynix 128GB M.2 2242 PCIe NVMe SSD w/ 2280 Bracket, HFM128GDHTNGI won''t use the included 2280 bracket as it's not for my machine. Some of those terms are kinda foreign to me.

It's not comfortable to type nor to work with mouse. I know, that proc is 47W and also nvidia is there to bring up the heat, but all I'm doing is browsing on the internet and I have the nvidia disabled in Control panel -> devices.Is this normal? I've checked the temperature of the proc, and it's normal (around 52 - 56C), but it's not normal to me, that the surface is so hot.Anyone else also has this problem?

Hi,I recently purchased a used T440p, more specifically a model 20AW-S0RK03. Unfortuntatly it arrived damaged and, naive as I was, I accepted a small partial refund and figured it wouldn't be too much on an issue to replace it...However, it seems that this part is rather difficult to obtain and furthermore I now realize that the palmrest for the T440p exists with several different internal designs (number/placement of screw holes etc.).If possible I would much prefer not having to disassemble it twice - once to figure out the part number and once again when the part arrives - so if anyone can inform me what part number I need for my specific model (20AW-S0RK03), then that would be a huge help.Any tips on where to buy (if allowed) will also be greatly appreciated. Note that I'm a student, so both cost and delivery time (I'm in Europe) needs to be considered.Thanks in advance. I really hope that someone can assist me with this tiresome situation.Rasmus

Yes, you can upgrade both. Max RAM is 16GB (2x 8GB), and you could install any CPU from the below list:
 

i5-4210M
i5-4300M
i5-4330M
i7-4600M
i7-4700MQ
i7-4710MQ
i7-4800MQ
i7-4900MQ

I'm only listing few models for the sake of keeping the list short. Basically any Haswell CPU should work.
 
To do this upgrades you need Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual, which you can download from here:  click me!

First of all greetings to all of you on this forum!This is my very first topic in here and, quite frankly, might be one of the only threads I'll ever make, that's because I'm on an impasse where I need some advice before doing anything that might mess things up. Anyway! Back to the situation at hand. While working earlier this week I accidently spilled coffee all over my computer (thanks body for having a sudden urge to sneeze just when I was taking a sip of it). Presently I shut my computer down, removed the keyboard and dried everything that I could below the keyboard/"fluid-shield" and squeezed some paper towel below it keys as well. After all that I hooked everything back together and turned the computer on to check for failures and unfortunately one little key wasn't working: my dear little left key. Luckly it wasn't a letter key and I could carry on with my work for up until I had some time to try to resurrect it (which is today). I have to mention that my warrant expired an year ago and I do have some experience working with electronics, so it wouldn't hurt to disassemble the keyboard itself and check for coffee-blockage in the circuitry, which I suspect it is the case because otherwise I'd expect a whole array of keys to go bad all at once. The thing is, after removing the board from the computer I can't remove the plastic back (the one that slides and hides the screws) save for the lateral plastic clamps.
