X301 w7: integrated camera kaputt

[ Edited ]

My camera stopped working after I finally got my wwan to work. Smiley SadIt has disappeared from the system altogether. 

I have been surfing for a solution for days. This seems to be a difficult problem. In DOS I would have looked for interrupt conflicts. But what to do in w7? Please help...

check the device manager.

start -> rightclick on computer -> settings -> device manager.

 

if it shows up there with a yellow questionmark your driver is not installed (properly).

Whatever, you can try to reinstall the driver in this panel.

I disabled Multi-Core in BIOS so i don't have regular lags.
I always keep energy saving settings to "Maximum Performance" so i don't have regular contrast issues.
I deinstalled ThinkAdvantage Access Connections so i don't have random WLAN Adapter "power offs".

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately the camera doesn't even show up in the device manager. Or maybe I am looking in the wrong direction. What is the name of the device in the manager and where is it shown?

Re: X301 w7: integrated camera kaputt

I'm having the same issue.

 

The camera is not showing on Device Manager after I installed the latest driver (which I installed because Skype wasn't recognizing the camera). 

 

Any clues?

Re: X301 w7: integrated camera kaputt

I did some more investigating, and it looks like the I have an "unknown device" showing on my Device Manager list that could potentially be the camera. Can someone check for me? This is what is see when I click on properties. I am wondering if a properly installed camera also shows on Port 0002, Hub 0003.
