T500 Win7 64 bit Integrated Camera Not Working

[ Edited ]

I have a T500 64 bit with Win7 Pro. The integrated camera in the device manager has the following error:


Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)


I have installed the latest driver from the Lenovo site:


And made sure after I installed this driver, the version in device manager is the same: 1.32.500.0


I have also installed Yawcam but it says no device selected when I launch it. It doesnt detect the integrated camera.


Please help in resolving this.

Re: T500 Win7 64 bit Integrated Camera Not Working

A bit late but the issue here is you have to install the ThinkVantage Communications Utility. Once I installed that I was able to get my T500's integrated camera working with Skype and not just with the TV Comm Utility's application. Hit the Function F6 button to launch the camera utility.

Re: T500 Win7 64 bit Integrated Camera Not Working

did not correct the issue for me, nor did instally easy capture as suggested elsewhere on this site... the key combo Fn-F6 has no effect the only key combination that does anything is Fn-PgUp which only turns on the camera light. Attempting to install the driver for the integrated camera fails silently (dies before completely installing without notice) so I am at a loss, I have been trying to get this working off & on for about 31/2 months to no avail and am about to give up and deal with a USB solution.

So I need to slap the second hand sales person at the mom & pop shop who sold me the refurbished T500, simply because there isn't an integrated webcam nor bluetooth module on the model of Thinkpad that I purchased so all the hours scouring the 'net resulting in fruitless endeavor after endeavor could have been put toward something useful had the machine model been correctly labeled... I will take my responscibility in the matter as well as I am legally blind [in one eye] and should have been more scrupulous when making my purchase(s).
