I bought S10-2 a month ago. Everthing was working fine. I used webcam while chatting in yahoo and skype etc.
But, a week ago, while chatting I found that webcam is not working. I checked everything but webcam ddt wake up.
Even in device manager, I could find it (like imaging device or Usb video device) Nothing to metion about webcam in there.
I tried to install Bison driver again but it say no device found.
Pressing Fn+esc says not installed webcam found.
I dont knw whats gone wrong automatically.
Finally, I though to recover the system back to its factory setting expecting all wrongs will be right but result again the same. No Camera !!! situation is the same as mentioned above.
look like S10-2 never had a web cam
@@ I will mention that
I didt ugraded the firmware for the Bison webcam.
Win7 is on automatic update setting
Once, I uninstalled veriface 3.6 bcz I dont wanted to use it (but afterward camera was working for some day)
Now, I want help from you guys before i send it to the cumtomer center.
waiting your suggestions

I installed the lenovo easy capture software and was able to get webcam ability, but like you I cannot see the device.
See Kalvin Kliens post for easycapture link..

you might try the alternate drivers too, theres the bison/chicony ones and I forget the other name
Does device manager list your camera under imaging?
You can use any webcam software to get the cam working
yawcam (yet another web cam) is popular

I tried to install Bison but it did't work and I cannot see camera in device manager.
Anyhow, tomorrow I will send my Lenovo S10-2 to customer center
Thanks for your suggestions

Pres Fn and esc then i also do the recovery...
Shutdown then there’s updated sign besides the turn off.. let it installed..
i took 45 minutes for shutting it down!!
Then i tried to turn it on.. Surprise the veriface reading the camera - before it is not, before the cam also not detected.. and there is no USB detected either on my Device manager
