Lenovo IdeaPad Y550


It's been a few days since my camera stop working without any specific reason.

Everytime i try to open any web camera software (skype-Windows live messenger-and other like this software) got the message that there's no camera on my laptop and should install one and then re-open the program.

The fact of all this is that i can't find it anywhere at the computer, i mean at the device manager,

Anything that can help you out?

The only time i saw that the camera is on my computer is from a software for drivers and said that only the driver is updated.

Any clue about it?

web cam issues

So i was wondering if anyone could tell me why my web cam cant even be found or recognized. could it have been disconnected internally? does it need a driver?

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Y550

test your camera first.

if it works, try to re-install drivers ( activate camera by pressing fn + esc )

also make sure your function keys are working, if not re-install power management.


if you don't see yourself from the link above, possible loose cable or dead camera, contact lenovo support line for replacement.
