Webcam doesn't work in W520

2012-04-05, 11:14 AM

My Webcam was working earlier but after I uninstalled Kaspersky 2010 from my computer I get the message that the webcam is in use but its not being used. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers but that didn't help. Is there anyway to fix this problem?

Hello Justashik and welcome to community,


Uninstall the camera driver from the device manager also check if separate Lenovo USB camera is installed.


Also uninstall the Skype software if it installed, restart the system and install the camera driver and configure by Fn+F6 key.


Best Regards,
