Yoga 2 Pro Camera Stopped Working

2015-01-21, 16:18 PM

I have had my Yoga 2 Pro for about a year (just out of warranty, of course!). After figuring out a few of the little quirks it has, it has served me very well. I have been using VeriFace to sign in. Last week the camera stopped working. When I checked other applications, the camera has stopped working there as well. I get a message box saying the camera is in use by another app. When I bring up Task Manager, there are no other applications running. Any idea how to get my camera back? Thanks!

This does not work on windows 10. It gives me This troubleshooter is not compatible with this version off Windows. In the end it gives out the error: Service registration is missing or corrupt.
