Y550 Webcam stopped working

Symptoms

I have a Y550. My daughter did something and my keyboard quit working so I did a system restore. I tried to use Skype today and an error message pops up to tell me that I do not have a webcam installed on my laptop. How do I get my webcam back up and working?

Diagnosis

Some files required for the webcam to work could have been deleted accidentally, or your drivers could be outdated.

 

The webcam could also have been accidentally deactivated.

Solution

Solution 1:

 

Check if you have YouCam installed and uninstall the program, then reinstall.

 

Restart your system.

 

Solution 2: 

 

If you have created a back-up of your system and files, you can update the drivers and BIOS. If the problem persists, perform OneKeyRecovery to return to initial settings.

 

Solution 3:

Check that your camera has been activated. Press Fn + Esc to check if this has been done.
