    Webcam not working after installing a new graphics card


    I have the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000, which has been working amazingly since I got it in October. The video is clear, The microphone is great, everything about it works well. The problem is after I installed a new graphics card, the camera stopped working correctly and, instead of my video, shows a grey screen. I have tried restarting my computer, reinstalling the webcam drivers, and more to no avail. The light still turns on whenever I'm about to use the camera and the microphone works correctly, but as I said before, the video is a gray screen. Can anyone help? My specs are:


    Processor: Intel i5-6400

    GPU: Asus Nvidia Geforce PH-GTX 1050 TI-4G

    12 gigabytes of RAM


    Thank you.

    :)

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.
