Webcam not working on Laptop

By HamptonEdwards
Feb 9, 2010
  1. I have not used it in quite a while. Now when I try and use it, the webcam does not show up in Device Manager. If I bring up Windows Live Messenger > Tools > Audio Video setup, it states that no webcam is installed.

    I have tried reinstalling the latest webcam driver, resetting bios to the default values, using System Restore to restore the original driver, and I have reinstalled the latest bios. None of these actions had any affect.

    Is there anything that would cause it to be disabled? Why doesn't my laptop find the webcam/webcam driver?
