SPuvcbv64.sys is a driver used by the camera in your laptop that was made by Sunplus.     You probably need to get an updated drivers, so try the steps below to install the latest driver



  1. Right-click on Start and select Device Manager
  2. Left-click on Imaging Devices to expand that section
  3. Right click on your Camera and select Properties and then select the Driver Tab, and note down  both the version and date of the existing driver.
  4. Right click on your Camera and select Update Driver, and then select Search automatically for updated driver software    

Note:   I am not sure if you camera will be called Lenovo EasyCamera or Sunplus...Camera etc. in Device Manager


If Windows does not find an updated driver for your camera, while still in Device Manager,

  1. Right-click on the Camera, and select Uninstall
  2. If given the option, check to box to Delete the driver software for this device before clicking Next and follow the prompts to force a re-installation of the driver.


If asked to reboot do so, but if not, while still in Device Manager, click on the Action Menu at the top and select Scan for hardware changes (or right-click on another device in Device Manager and select Scan for hardware changes)



Best of luck,

i am facing the same problem on my Thinkpad E460 and found the solution by uninstalling camera driver several times until the driver vendor become Microsoft. There also another method by switching the camera driver without uninstalling it. 


By the way, my default camera driver says it is from SunplusIT and by uninstalling it become Microsoft, I dont really understand but you can follow the guide from this article https://www.networkreverse.com/2020/05/how-to-fix-windows-10-camera-crash-bsod.html


There is also a method with a video to upgrade the camera driver from Microsoft Catalog and you will have the latest SunplusIT driver that works.

Thanks ardfank, I followed the Method 3 of the networkreverse link you posted to use the Microsoft webcam driver.  Very simple, quick, and solved the issue of my SunplusIT webcam on my Lenovo Yoga 11e constantly causing a blue screen every time anything tried to activate it!  Previously I had tried different versions SunplusIT drivers with no luck, but switching to Microsoft's did the trick for me.
