If the computer is still under warranty either take the computer back to where you purchased it or take the computer to an authorized repair center. Anything that is that new needs to be handled by the manufacture.

Lenovo g550 built in webcam not working?


If it's an internal webcam,the one on the top of the LCD monitor,look for a key on the keyboard which has a webcam picture on it,usually between F1-F12,but not always
If it's an external webcam,that connected to USB ports,open the device manager
Right click on My Computer and select properties,then click on the Hardware tab and click Device Manager, expand the
Universal Serial Bus Controllers by clicking on it,and see if there are any USB device that has "?" sign on it. If there are one,right click on the device and select uninstall,uninstall it and then restart your computer,when the computer turned on,the driver will reinstall automatically
Please let me know if it's works or not and thanks for using fixya

This is actually a problem you need to communicate with Facebook about. :) I'd say you can probably fix the 1st account, if Facebook is at all logical. It's really not a PC problem, though.

My web cam is built into my laptop but i cant turn it on now


Its either the web cam is broken or that the driver for it is corrupted and now the os has no way of controling or turning on the web cam.

Try this:

Reinstall the web cam driver.

If this does not work, check device manager and see if the webcam is listed.

If the camera's driver is reinstalled and the unit is listed then there is an os issue.

Write back to me with your findings after you have tried all above

You will need to know which web cam, I think there are three different possibilities.

Web cam


In msn live click on show menu then tools option for cam setup
If that don't work click again show menu then actions then video then show my webcam or start video conversation.
If taht does'nt work then I would assume it's something in your camera setup itself
