Integrated web camera

2009-03-04, 3:40 AM

I  got my new Lenovo 3000 N 500 today. How do I boot up the camera? The Lenovo Camera icon brings up two options one to download software for video conference, and the other is Roxio import. I clicked on the roxio cause it say you can take photos with it. There is no tab or icon to start up or open the camera. Please help. How do I open/boot up the camera???

Re: My webcam stopped working

i faced the same problem after installing latest version of Skype. but it works with earlier versions.

what i did was,,,,,

uninstall all software related to webcam. then install the driver program available with lenove cd.

then web cam is identified as "xerox scanner" then again i unstall all drivers and mannually configer the "unknown device" (web cam) as Microsoft usb video device.

then update the driver again.

 

then it works. but there is still "unknown device" in device manager.

however its not working with latest version of  skype.

 

(this is my private experience)

Hey guys!

 

I was just having this problem, so I went to this forum and saw PGH's reply to this post.  I had apparently accidentally disabled my camera through typing Fn+Esc.  Clicking those keys again enabled the camera. 

 

I use an IdeaPad S10-2 by the way.

 

Thanks to PGH and all you guys!  God bless!

I also second the suggestions of others to download a driver to update it for the webcam if there is any.  I hope that works.
