  2. Web Camera is not working

    Hello

    I assume by your comment "black screen appears in video call", you are experiencing problems in other camera apps as well, possibly Skype. If your camera isn't working in any applications this is indicative of a camera driver issue. Please try the steps
    listed here to resolve your issue:

    If your issue isn't resolved after running the steps, please report back with your camera make and model and the driver information you aquire from step 3.

    Thanks,

    Tom
