You are simply missing a driver, you should download it from the manufacturer website if you don't have the software for it!

for Example if the webcam is from Lenovo then visit 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.

I want install the web cam software for lenovo 3000-y410 model


Hi raghavbacha,

Installing the software for your Lenovo 3000 Y410's web cam is easy. You can do it on your own in less than 5 minutes and I can help you with that. Just simply follow the steps below:

  • Go to this link to get the software directly from Lenovo's website.
  • You'll be directed on a page where you can see all the drivers and software for your Lenovo 3000 Y410. Kindly look for Software.
  • Underneath you'll see the web cam software for Y410 specifically for Windows Vista 32bit Operating System.
  • The name of the software is EasyCapture, kindly click on that.
  • Afterwards, click on download here.
  • Wait until the donwload is complete, install EasyCapture.
  • When the installation is complete you'll need to restart your computer.
Before launching the software for your web cam just make sure that camera is enabled so press Fn + Esc. An icon of a camera will appear on the lower right side of your screen, if the one that appeared has a slash at middle of the camera it means camera was disabled so make sure to press Fn + Esc once again.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

The driver for the built in camera might be incompatible. Go to your Manufacturer (Lenovo.com) and download the drivers. Install it and restart your PC to take effects.
