Go to Lenovo 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 Lenovo 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 there is not any hardware issue.

Feel free to get technical assistance at http://www.vtechsquad.com/lenovo-support/ if you get any issue with your Lenovo laptop/desktop.

Can i use my canon digital ixus 75 camera as a web cam?


Many people ask if they can use their digital camera as a webcam. In the early days of digital imaging, it made sense to dual-function a camera because a webcam was a serious investment. However, webcams are now so inexpensive that manufacturers are not considering this functionality important in their digital cameras. In fact even the word 'webcam' creates the impression of bad imaging, so associating this function with a camera actually makes the camera seem 'cheap'.

Your camera is actually quite a new, and a nice camera. It doesn't make a lot of sense for Canon to make it work as a webcam, because it's a waste. And in any case, you'd expect a webcam to be powered by a wall outlet or the USB... but most modern cameras like yours don't come with adapter-power, they have battery chargers instead. And they take too much current to use the USB power. By the time they'd added the extras to make it work properly as a webcam, you could BUY a USB webcam separately.

Anyway, back to your question... so, can your camera be used as a webcam? Probably not, but here's how you can tell. Make sure you've installed all the software you can find for your camera, power it up, and plug it in. Windows will tell you if it has a webcam function. If it's a webcam, then it will appear in "My Computer" as a device, right along with all the disk drives. To be sure, go to your control panel and select "Scanners and Cameras". Is your camera listed? If not... it's not a webcam.

In the unlikely event that you have a 'video in' on your computer, and that your camera has a 'video out' then you can follow the instructions on the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.

Sorry this wasn't the news you really wanted.

Logiteck Pro webcam on Mac does not want to work


You should be able to select the Logitech webcam in the Settings of the program you are using. Try this free webcam test site. Click on the camera icon and then choose the Logitech from the drop down list. Once you are sure it is loaded and working properly, go into your service and select the Logitech. In Skype it is under Settings, Camera. In MSN click Tools, Audio & Video set up, Next. It should give you the option to choose what camera you want to use.

Digital Camera BenQ DC C500 as a webcam


Digital camera's do not normally operate as a webcam however I have come across the odd one that can do this. Cameras usually appear as a removable disk to the opperating system. Are you sure your camera can work in this way?
