You may be exceeding the Hardware limits of your laptop, Win 8 has hardware minimum requirements. See: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/system-requirements That's a common problem in a OS upgrade. Did you check the Hardware Compatibility list before you installed Win 8? Take a look at this: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/termshm/g/windowshcl.htm First you must ID the Unknown Device, Card Reader is common along with Fax modem, Audio, on a full size laptop. ID the device and download the driver from the Dell website.

Missing webcam driver for windows 8


You stated " was working fine" , It was working fine in windows 7? windows 8? In Device Manager you can do a scan for hardware changes. Does the webcam show? if no, it might show unknown device if you will have to find the drivers for the webcam at the HP drivers and support. You can try a RE-Boot the software will try to locate a driver, if it cannot it wiil ID it as a unknown device, you will have to find the driver, this is common with a new OS or a upgrade on a machine.

Hi spritzer,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

It looks like that there are missing drivers that you need to install, that's why your laptop keeps freezing. Please check the device manager and if you find yellow question marks and says unknown device, you need to install the missing drivers.
