Webcam disappeared

Hello everyone

 

I got this problem with my webcam, that it is not working - I found out about it when was trying to use Skype. Camera is not even listed in device manager, and there are no problems there eg with USB, no yellow exclamation marks. Cant find any solution by reading forum, besauce this problem which is common, is somehow conncted to Windows XP, but I have Windows Vista. When i press Fn + Esc it says, that no camera is installed. I cant do any restore, cause I got this computer used, and there was no restore disk or recovery.

 

I will be glad if someone even suggest something, because I run out of ideas.

 

I got Lenovo s10e, 4068, Windows Vista 32.

 

Sorry for my english Smiley Happy

Re: Webcam disappeared

shut down your computer and press one key recover button ( the arrow icon ) to perform clean windows installation. ( do not forget to backup your datas first )

also, try to install camera drivers after you activate the camera by pressing fn + esc.

when i use the arrow button the only thing that happens is that computer starts. at first i had XP, now got Vista, never had such thing as recovery or other copy.

Re: Webcam disappeared

as i know, s10e systems are not designed for vista.
if you still want to use, try this driver:

( make sure you installed power management first, press fn + esc to activate the camera )
