Hi kstrong,
I see that you need driver installed on you system, since you reinstalled windows on your Y510, make sure you check device manger on your system to see what driver you my need to install or probably you may need to reinstall all the drivers to make everything work fine on the Laptop.
below is a link where you can download your driver for your Y510 Laptop.
Once in the Download page make sure you only download the driver that is for the exact Windows on your system, it will say on the right side of each driver indicating what windows the driver is for.
I hope that this helps you with your concern, Reinstalling all your Laptops drivers will fix your systems devices and make them work properly again.
thanks have nice day.

In my lenovo ideapad u 160 easy capture camera is not functioning.

webcams do go bad. In my experience when a webcam stops functioning in one way, shape, or form it's usually the actual webcam that's faulty.

Hi sonypony,

I see that you are having issue with using the camera on your Lenovo with other programs such as Skyp or Yahoo Messenger and so on...

On your Lenovo the camera works with easy capture, that is a good sign saying that your camera works but how to make it work on other applications you will need to get in the applications settings and select the Lenovo Camera as a default device for that specific application that you are using to utilize the camera.

all the applications you mentioned earlier has thier own settings page and this is where you can set each to make the Lenovo Camera the default deivce for it to work on your applications.

I hope that this will help you with your Camera concern.

Have a nice day,

My webcam upside down in my Lenovo Y510, please tell me solution to fix it

Hi saurabh_shau,

Based on your situation. I suggest trying the following steps:

The image in your Webcam Uploader window might be inverted because of your camera setting.

To change the setting:
1. Click Messenger and select "My Webcam."
2. In the window that opens, click the "File" menu, select "Preferences," and choose "Webcam".
3. Click the "Camera Settings" button.
4. There is usually a checkbox for "Invert Image" or "Mirror Vertical." Un-check this box if one exists. If you can't find this checkbox, try searching the other tabs.

For yahoo messenger

1. Log on to yahoo messenger then go in preferrence.
2. Then webcam select webcam setting & then deselect the IMAGE FLIP.
3. Now save the setting.

Hope it helps.
