Welcome to Lenovo Community. Sorry to learn of your problem with Windows 10.

If your Z500 is not on Lenovo's Compatibility List for Windows 10 upgrade, you might consider reverting to the previous operating system.

As mentioned by the MOD, your system is not on the compatibility list for Windows 10. This does not mean the system can't run it, it just means that Lenovo has not fully tested the system or has not provided drivers for Win 10. The list is constantly being updated so there is a small chance that your system will show up in a few months though can't make any promises. 


With that in mind, if you really want to keep Win 10 try reinstalling the camera driver.


If that does not work go ahead and uninstall the driver and restart your machine, when there is no driver installed windows installs the driver it think most correctly fits.


Good luck,
