T410s webcam not working

My webcam has been working fine with all programs (skype, aim, websites, etc) until yesterday.  Now, it just shows a black sceen and when I try to access it on websites I get error messages saying the webcam can not be found.  When I look under my devices, it says the webcam is installed and my drivers are up to date.  I tried reinstalling the drivers but that didn't work.  Is this a hardware issue or am I doing something wrong?

Integrated Webcam on T400 not working after Windows 7 install

Installed Windows 7  this weekend and have gotten everything to work except the integrated webcam.  I do not see the camera listed in the BIOS under Security I/O.  Have tried to install the driver with not luck because it cannot be found.  I do have an item in the device manager the has an exclamation mark and I think that it is the webcam.  It is listed under the USB Root Hub as an Unknown Device.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Re: T410s webcam not working

Install lenovo ThinkVantage communication Utility on your computer if you don't have.

Press function key + F6 to load think vantage communication utility.

Under the camera settings, click on "show camera images"

Re: T410s webcam not working

I have the same problem,  my inegrated cam is not working. I also tried installing the latest driver .19.

 

When i press Fn+F6, I get Communication settings window, I can see Audio Settings, therez no Camera Settings.

 

I cannot see the camera in Device Manager, I believe its supposed to be under section "Image *"

 

need help! :smileysad:

Re: T410s webcam not working

Hi, i have the same problem, too. The Webcam is enabled in bios, but windows does not find it so it doesn't show up in lenovo fn+f6 media whatever settings. is this result of broken hardware?
