Have you tried updating the device driver for this piece of hardware? This link will take you through to the Lenovo Ideapad support pages where you can search for the device driver by the serial number from the base of your laptop. Once you've found the relevant pages you should be able to download the driver executable file, once its saved to your default location double click on the file and follow the prompts, you may need to reboot your laptop once the driver installation has completed.

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.
