The most practical first step when you can't find the device in question in "Device Manager" is to reinstall the drivers for the device in question.

That may very well resolve your problem.

Good luck. Post back if that doesn't work.

How do I turn on the integrated webcam?


you either have it disabled in the control panel or the driver files are corrupted. You might have loaded some software which accesses the camera and uninstalled it or its installation failed, taking down the driver wth it. find camera driver and load it. look for it in control panel or device control.

Webcam driver open fail. I says to restart my computer or camera. When I restart the computer the same message comes up.


Open device manager and double check that driver is installed correctly-if not, roll back or update driver for your webcam. If there is a problem with a device it is usually indicated by a yellow warning triangle in device manager

Cannot use webcam that came with my Toshiba L305


Howdy

you should mention the model name of your laptop to find the drivers. For example if you are using a Lenovo notebook 3000 N100, in the google.com you can type Lenovo support and downloads and you will get a site where you can enter your model name and number, operating system you are using and so on and download the drivers freely for your system.

Anyway you can go to device manager and select the webcam; right click on it and select disable option to disable it and stop getting warning messages. You can enable it anytime you want when you get the drivers for it.

Thanks & regards,
