    I use a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop loaded with Vista SP1 and have the same problem with integrated webcam. It doesnt show up in device manager, none of the programs recognize it. I tried installing the driver from HP many times, that dint help either.

    There is no Fn+Esc combo for toggling cam on/off in HP. I would be greatful if somebody could help.

If the Y410 is like my Y510 then it is possibly one of two things.

1. If the computer goes into "sleep" mode, the camera may not come back online when it wakes up. A restart will obviously fix this.

2. Does your keyboard have a Fn key assigned to the ESC key that will toggle the camera ON/OFF? If so, give that a try.

Hi guys... i got it fixed.. actually i have been browsing few other forums and the problem is with firewall settings.. yahoo cannot support any firewalls.. so i had to disable windows firewall, disable norton antivirus for yahoo msgr and then had to disable my internet connection service provider firewall.. then it worked fine. I know this is no safety to my computer, but i disable this only when i want to use my webcam, everyother time i keep my firewall safety settings high.

Lenovo z580 webcam not working

First, try turning on the camera by pressing and holding Fn (second key from the left on the bottom row) and then press Esc (first key on the left of the top row of keys). Release both keys. Many laptops ship without the drivers for the web cam. Go to and download the appropriate driver for your OS.

I hope this helps.

Web cam Problem

Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
