Is this Pad, internet connected? so PnP can do its job?
20 questions (no os stated so....)
did it work before? ('other shoe drops' effect) ever, if yes when/?
is the cam port , covered in black tape like mine is?
no OS stated, why post lacking such a key fact
no application stated you are using to us cam, SKYPE?
join the club here, 99% here never say it, and the answers
are all wrong, or goes sideways, ever wonder why.? this.
1: did you buy this PC brand new or used. if new, what windows?
2: did you change the OS, upgrade to w10 during the free upgrade?
3: in DM, device manager, are USB ports dead? if yes learn that many cameras use port 0 USB just dedicated to the cam.
if the usb driver is missing,, then bingo. dead cam.
That is not a hard fast rule, only the engineer that made it knows.
but i can in fact dismantle to driver to learn it. but refuse here.
if the camera software from Lenovo is missing same.
now lets go to lenovo, and guess what they will ask OS>
after all the OS and hardware must match. (rare exceptions)
is see with 10sec google searches the webcam is bundled with the card reader module. and driver.
i also is in 1second it has 3 camera's used.
Camera Driver (Bison, Chicony, Liteon) 1,2,3,
so like all PCs made, the full laptop service tag is the only why
to learn what came with PC new. as an option.
or run (load) all 3 drivers, pray one works.
power on the PC, be web connected, now, Ethernet cable Cat5 cable to router is best (hard wires is always best)
then see if the PC will plug and Play (PnP) the driver for the cam.
this pc is 6 years old today.
now real support at Lenovo off there Download site REAL
again note the 3 cameras used.
learn now, that other driver may be a predicate t
o making it work
USB tops my list.
2 common ways for any device in any PC failing( not bad hardware)
upgrading from older windows to newer.
then not loading the missing drivers, all.
at above link.
in DM , are other lines in DM showing RED marks, yellow marks
or UNKNOWN marks,
if yes BINGO,
In Linux we have a thing called dependencies, that MS nor Lenovo ever show or tell,. making windows sometimes a pain to get all devices working.
Not only that but many devices inside may be Lenovo custom.
(unlike anything else on earth custom) see?
go there now, tell it (check box) your OS
and bingo load that. cam driver.
i see for w10-64 its unified, 3 drives on one load.
but no OS stated by you.
run box, click control panel
bingo OS is before your eyes.
if w7 "? are all 350 update loaded and present.
w7 is a pain loaded fresh, now. takes all day go finish the updates. so is it? and IE7 updated first??????
