    1. Still new to notebook computers

    It's a new notebook (

    The camera (integrated) was working fine, now suddenly it has vanished.

    I have been looking for it in my device manager, and under the "sound, video and game contollers" I can find a "legacy video capture device" that appears to be working normally.

    However, in any program I go to use requiring the camera it says I do not have any video capture device installed.

    Thanks in advance all.
