First install a missing driver, you can download it from the laptop manufacturer website if you don't have the software for it!

for Example if the webcam is from Dell/Toshiba/Acer then visit Dell/Toshiba/Acer/Lenovo website...

First uninstall the older device drivers and then install the latest device drivers. You can also download the latest webcam drivers from the internet and install the new device drivers.

Now go to manufacture site & in the download option, select your model number.

After selecting the laptop model number from site, click on 'Software & Drivers Downloads'.

Now you need to choose your operating system & select the given updates & follow all instructions to download it.

After complete download, install supported driver for your laptop webcam. After install driver, reboot your laptop again and check that your webcam is working properly or not.

I hope it will fix your webcam not working issue if laptop is not facing any hardware issue.

For anyone confused since there is no webcam for windows 7 option, you can use the vista option on the lenovo drivers site - link here to save time:

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.

How do I use the intigrated web cam on my new Lenovo laptop Y510


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
