Thinkpad T530 Integrated Camera does not work

I have a brand new T530 running Windows 8 and the integrated camera will not work straight from the factory.  I'd like to think this would have been tested from the factory; what should I be looking for?

It might be the privacy settings preventing the cam. You could check this in Skype. or the Lenovo Settings app, providing you are using Windows 8.

It is Windows 8....I looked at the privacy settings and there's no mention of a web cam

Did you check Lenovo Communications Utility? Privacy settings are configured within LCU, IIRC.

T530: i7-3630QM, 16GB DDR3-1600, NVS 5400M, 2TB SSD, 250GB mSATA, 750GB 7200RPM, HD+ 1600x900, Win7 Pro 64-bit L430: i3-2370M, 8GB DDR3-1600, HD 3000, 750GB 7200RPM, HD 1366 x 768, Win7 Home 64-bit

Go to the Device Manager in Windows, and make the that 'intergrated camera' is showing up. If it's not install this driver: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032431

 

If that doesn't work, than the camera is probably defective, or somehow didn't get plugged in.

Some variant of this ended up working...the end user removed it and rebooted and it started working.

 

Thanks for your help.
