Z61M integrated camera not showing up

Hi,

 

For some reason my integrated camera seems to have completely disappeared from my computer except for the "Uninstall" option. I tried to install the software from the Lenovo website to no avail. Is there something I should try to do, or should I look into buying a separate camera?

It pops up under "imaging devices" as "Unknown device." It says the driver is uninstalled, but I thought I reinstalled it last night.

Re: Z61M integrated camera not showing up

you didn't install the drivers, you simply unpacked the drivers, now go to the folders that you unpacked the drivers and install it from there.

I installed the drivers after unpacking them when I first downloaded it the other night, but nothing showed up. Should I do it again?

go into the device manager and click on the unknown device and update driver, then direct the windows to search for the driver in the unpacked folder.

Re: Z61M integrated camera not showing up

I directed it to search for the driver in that folder, and it says "Cannot install hardware because software cannot be found." Is there something I'm missing?

Re: Z61M integrated camera not showing up

Is this the driver you downloaded and extracted?  The default extraction location is C:\DRIVERS\WIN\CAMERA  Have you run the setup file from that location?

Re: Z61M integrated camera not showing up

That is the driver I installed, and I did run the setup file. I'm able to direct Device Manager to search in that folder for the driver, but it isn't showing up.
