    I'm trying to install my webcam to my PC and they are asking to insert a disc which did not come with the camera. Is there some way I can install the camera without the disc?

  3. Webcam had disappeared

    Hi,

    The webcam may have stopped working due to hardware failure, or a loose cable that connects it to the device’s motherboard. We suggest that you try to show hidden devices in
    Device Manager by following these steps:

    • Right-click on the Start menu and select Device Manager.
    • Click on the View tab and select Show hidden devices.

    If you are seeing the webcam drivers, uninstall them. Then restart your device to check if Windows will be able to recognize the webcam and will install the drivers.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    installing a webcam

    install webcam on msi laptop

    Hi 1papertiger,

    This is Wil, one of the independent advisor, an expert with Windows 10 and a fellow Windows 10 user like you. I understand your concern about installing webcam on MSI laptops.

    Most laptops have a built-in webcam on it, If it's not working, there's a problem with the driver or settings of it.

    Step1: I request you to check for Hidden Devices in Device Manager. Please refer to these steps:

    a. On the desktop, press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.

    b. Click on View and select Show Hidden Devices.

    c. Check for the webcam under Imaging Devices.

    d. If the webcam is listed, then right-click on it and select Update Driver Software.

    e. Select Browse My Computer for Driver Software and follow the prompted steps.

    Step 2: Run the hardware troubleshooter and check if you receive any error messages.

    a. On the desktop, press Windows key + W and type Troubleshooting.

    b. Click on it and click on Hardware and Sound.

    c. Click on Hardware and Devices and follow the prompted steps.

    If the laptop doesn't have a built-in webcam on it, you would need to purchase an external webcam, plug it on your laptop and driver will download automatically.

    I hope my suggestions help you. If you need further assistance please do reply back and I will respond as quickly as possible. Have a nice day.

    Thanks,

    Wilfred P.
