Lenovo G510 camera driver problem with windows 7

I have downloaded Camera driver for Windows 7 which is (cam125w7.exe ) but when i try to install it i get an error message ( No Appropriate Driver to be installed)

I have tried also to install the driver from c:/drivers/camera driver but i got the same error messages for every driver i tried to install

I am sure that it is a software problem not a hardware problem because camera was working well on windows 8 using the drivers on the cd which comes with the laptop

Please help

Re: Lenovo G510 camera driver problem with windows 7

Hi Shady,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community

 

I’m sorry to hear that the webcam is not working and displaying an error message while installing the driver. I suggest you to check if the Webcam is getting detected in “Device Manager” after enabling the Webcam by pressing Fn+Esc keys together on the keyboard. Please let me know the findings.

 

Hope to hear back soon

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Re: Lenovo G510 camera driver problem with windows 7

The Camera exists in Device Manager under (Imaging Devices ) but I don't find in program files any installed executable file to run the camera ....

I have tried Fn+ ESC and then tried to install the remaing driver files but same error message appears (No Approriate Driver to install)

Hi Shady,

 

As device is displayed under “Imaging Devices”, try to install the driver in administrator mode. While installing the driver right click on the downloaded file and select “Run as administrator” option to get it installed without any error, please let me know the findings and below is the link to download the compatible “You Cam” software for the computer:

 

Hope to hear back soon

Re: Lenovo G510 camera driver problem with windows 7

I have the exactly same problem with my webcam....

Tried to install the driver with administration rights and tried to install the youcom driver but still the camera isn't working.

I see it "working properly" in the device manager...
