    USB Webcam not working

    I was gonna attend my online class and plugged in my USB Webcam. When I plugged in my Webcam, It doesn't work. When I opened my Device Manager, I saw that my Webcam USB Driver isn't showing up. Can you please help me solve this problem?

    Webcam not working


    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    This issue can occur if the camera drivers are not up-to date, your anti-virus may be blocking the camera, or camera app is not installed properly. I would suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article:
    Camera does not work in Windows 10. You can also refer to the suggestion on HP article:
    HP PCs - Webcam Troubleshooting (Windows 10, 8).

    If you need any further assistance, please write back with the following information:

    1. What happens when you are trying to access Camera app?
    2. What is the exact error message you are getting?
    3. What is version of Windows 10 that is installed on your device?
    4. Are you using an external webcam? If yes, please help us with the make and model of the webcam.

    Usb Webcam help

    so i got this cheap USB webcam A4Tech PK-810G which is driver free.(plug and play) to use with FB video call or somethin like that. *Roll :roll:

    I tried to plug it in. Windows 7 64 bit tried to install it,

    Installing device driver software...
    driver software was not successfully installed.*Mad USB Webcam not working :mad:

    and it appeared on the device manager but without the proper icons and with a yellow triangle on it.

    I tried it on my brothers' PCs(same OS) and it worked without any issues at all.

    can anyone help me? what may be the problem here?, and oh, my usb ports work. I am using USB mouse, USB gamepad, USB Apple Charger, USB Bluetooth. only the webcam doesnt work, I tried unplugging all other USB device and just the webcam, still didn't work.

    I think it might be an OS related problem.

    help plsssss and I dont wanna reinstall OS just for a webcam, I searched google for hours but i cant find a solution *Bang Head :banghead:
