Hi! If you are using easy capture software to utilize the camera all you need to do is open that software and go to settings. Make sure that Lenovo camera was the one youre using on the drop down option.

My new lenovo s10's integrated webcam suddenly won't worl. when you press Fn-Esc to switch it on, a dialogue box opens saying "camera is not yet installed"


There are instances where the OS fails to detect the installed drivers. The only solution that i would suggest is to reinstall the webcam driver. Just un-install and then re-install the webcam. You can also visit to trace the latest drivers for your model. Also, try installing the latest drivers. This might help.

If this helps, rate me.. thanks - billa
