  1. "camera starting up" but never actually starts up


    When I try to use anything that requires use of my laptop's camera google meets, zoom, cyberlink youcam, camera app, etc, the camera never turns on. I've already checked for updates for my laptop and for the drivers, as well as made sure that my privacy settings allowed use of my camera. I've also tried to restart my laptop multiple times.



    I also wasn't certain which "windows topic" this problem belongs to, but I figured "performance & system failures" worked well enough

    :)

    Hi,

    Normally, the issue with the camera not being detected is caused by an outdated driver or a recent update triggers a system conflict. To assist you with your concern, we suggest that you follow the steps listed on this
    link. This is to identify and resolve any issues if Windows
    can't detect the device.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested steps.
