/root/lenovoVhid driver for z710

2014-07-07, 21:03 PM

I had to reinstall my IdeaPad z710 with Windows 7 x64 for a work program, but I'm having trouble getting the /root/lenovoVhid device installed.  I did some searching and came across this thread, http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/root-lenovovhid-for-Lenovo-z500/m-p/1404859#M112027, but the camera driver didn't seem to do anything for me.  Is this a different device on the z710?

This is the link to your camera driver. The one provided in the link above are for the Z500.

I actually went through the Lenovo Support site first to download all the drivers I could, so I did grab that driver (or at least it has the exact same name as the file I downloaded). Doesn't seem to work for me.

Try uninstalling whatever is indicated in device manager and put a check in the box if presented to delete the driver. Then install the driver again. Note: use the 64-bit driver.
