Lenovo x201 tablet laptop Integrated Webcam not working

I recently had to reinstall windows onto the Lenovo x201 tablet laptop and I can't get the integrated webcam to work on Google+. I tried downloading the integrated camera driver but during installation it stops about 3/4s of the way and the installation cancels. Not sure how to fix this , I checked under Device Manager and the camera driver is not listed under imaging devices. Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanks.

Hi

 

Welcome to the community.

 

As per our concern, I would suggest you to please re-install the camera driver from the below mentioned web link.

 

http://support.lenovo.com/en_SG/downloads/default.page?#

 

After that please perform the following steps.

1. Press Fn+F6 to enable the camera.

2. Click the Manage Settingsbutton. The Communications Utility window opens.

3. In the Communications Utility window, configure the camera settings depending on your individual needs.

 

Regards,

Sameer

Yeah, about that Sameer...

I don't think you got what the problem is, this is the problem:
"I checked under Device Manager and the camera driver is not listed under imaging devices."

That means the Integrated Camera is not being detected by windows.

These wont work and here's why:
Pressing Fn+F6 does bring up the Lenovo Settings but will not be able to change anything under "Communications Utility window" because the Camera is technically not recognized as an existing component of the X201.

I did not have problems using windows 7 and most of the other components are working when I upraded, except for the Camera, Bluetooth connections and the dual touch function,

I was able to get the dual touch and pen to work using info from one of our great colleagues here tho.

The drivers site for X201 indicates that we should use "windows inbox driver" - but again the camera itself cannot be detected.

Is there anybody who would be able to shed some info on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Lenovo x201 tablet laptop Integrated Webcam not working

I have just upgraded to windows !0 and had problems with speakers and microphone, these were fixed by disabling enhancements in properties of both. But I haven't had any success with getting the integrated camera to work. Have updated the driver, windows says it's the best one. Have disabled then enabled, no luck and uninstalled and re-installed the driver. also tried detecting new hardware but still can't get it to work. Is there anything else I should try? Thanks in advance. Geoff Morton
