Hi,
To test it is working okay, download and install Videocaster, and choose Capture Video from the main menu.
If you want to use it on Messenger or Skype, you have to select it as the default webcam in the video settings in each program.

Hope this helps

WEB CAM IS NOT WORKING IN MY LENOVO IDEAPAD Y510 LAPTOP AFTER INSTALLIN WINDOWS 7. PLEASE GUIDE ME.


Hi satyadevbujj,

Based on concern, Y510 camera driver for Windows 7 is not yet released based on Lenovo's support download site. Hence, you still can try updating the camera using the windows vista camera driver. Just go to this link.

--> after downloading, install the driver then restart your computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

WEB CAM OF LENOVO Y510 IS nt working in skype


Try pressing the "Fn" and "esc" buttons on the keyboard both at the same time to turn the camera on or off. It may work or may not, but that is the way it is supposed to work. There have been a lot of problems with this web cam and yahoo messenger. The only other thing I can suggest is to contact Lenovo and see if they might have another driver that can resolve this.
