Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E430 - Webcam Not Working - Image Window Black
Aug 13, 2012
The 720p webcam in my new Edge E430 (I just got it last Thursday) is not working properly. When I use the Communications Utility or Skype, the green light next to the webcam turns on, but the image window only shows a completely black image. Also, when I increase the brightness or contrast settings of the webcam, the image becomes completely gray or completely white.
The Device Manager shows two devices - the "Integrated Camera" and the "Virtual Camera." I have already tried uninstalling/reinstalling the webcam drivers, but that hasn't worked. What else can I do?
I have a problem with my battery on a brand new E430. I've used it for 1 week w/o problems and now it simply doesn't want to charge the battery anymore. It is stuck on 48% and I have a message saying "plugged in, not charging".
EDIT: I run Win 8 (64 bit) - absolutely everything is up to date, including BIOS.
My laptop freezes for a couple of seconds randomly from time to time. The problem sounds like this one: [URL] .....But CC cleaner did not solve the issue.
The problem happens with almost every program such as microsoft word e.g. if I type and it freezes, the words will come out after it unfreeze.
Before the freeze, the laptop usually becomes very quiet then a few seconds later something spins and freezes the computer. I can assume that it is the HDD. However, the computer does not freeze every time the hard disk spins loudly.
When the disk spins loudly, the HDD activity spikes in task manager and the 'system' is the program that corresponds to the spike which is 'ntoskrnl'. However, the data transfer is no more that 0.1 MB/s during the spike.
I tried running in safe mode and I'm not very sure if it worked. The disk spins loudly much less often but the freeze did not seem to happen. Safe mode either tells me that it is a program/connecting to the internet/(maybe the system) that makes this freeze.
I tried a hard disk scan using lenovo solution centre and it found no problems. Also tried antivirus scan using windows defender and found nothing after a full scan.
Finally specifications: OS: Windows 8 HDD: 1TB (upgraded from 750GB) RAM: 8GB (upgraded from 4GB) intel Core i5 3210M @2.5GHz 2.5GHz Bios: v2.52
I connected with the power plug and there was no green/yellow light next to the power socket. It seems not charging at all. Now it is forever dead. Tried to take the battery pack off, and connect it directly power plug, still dead.
I own one Lenovo E430. By now he is running Windows7, fully patched and updated. My issue is related with ultra-high touching sensitivity of the TouchPad. The TouchPad can react even on cloth touch.
This is problem for me, because I use TrackPoint, I don't have external keyboard and during high utilization extra unwanted clicks lead to unpredicted events. So, my question is how can I disable the Touchpoint.
I have purchased a new E430 ,, installed windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I installed all drivers and all is working fine.. I still have one unkown device (PCI) .. I think it's VGA .. but I installed intel HD card driver.
below is the info:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.
my laptop is HP 6107 TX and i have an integrated webcam, which worked the first few days after I bought it, but after that the webcam screen just shows plain black. But the strange thing is if I bring a luminous object, like a phone screen near it it shows a green image of the phone on the screen :
I own a Thinkpad E430(type 3254). It's about 14 months old. Yesterday, it randomly started having an issue with it's keyboard. It acts like the enter key is continuously pressed, and about 1 sec after I hit any other key it stops. The enter key by itself has stopped working, and only shorts sometimes and results in a continuous press.
As soon as i boot, enter input is given and normal startup gets interrupted. If i press any key, it's normal again until an OS loads. For example, if i boot into debian, line breaks get inserted between the console messages that are displayed until i press a key, and if i boot windows, it gets stuck at the login screen because enter is given without the correct password so it loops. This behavior also happens sometimes randomly while working normally.
The keyboard hasn't even seen heavy usage, or any drink spills. I usually keep the laptop at my desk, and use an external keyboard. The last time I took it out was 2 weeks ago. I doubt it can be a software issue, so do I need a new keyboard?
I have had my Y510 for 5 weeks. Last week I began getting a message that said:Failed to get data from camera.The camera may have been unplugged or busy whenever I starting my computer.
At the time no program was running that was using the webcam and I hadn't disable it. I uninstalled and reinstalled several times and it didn't fix the problem so, I downloaded and installed Veriface III. Now the webcam image is upside down and doesn't work in the VideoChat program that I used it in previously. My OS is Vista.
I have Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 15... Thinkpad edge 15 has all kinds of buttons on the keyboard. Like volume buttons, speaker mute button etc.
The problem is that there is a button for Webcam to disable/enable it (marked with yellow box on the pic), but its not working anymore. Everytime i push it, nothing happens(instead it shows me mouse cursor with that ring) . it should show me that camera is on/off. For example it shows me when my mic is off.
I have a problem with my Lenovo. The problem is that whenever I plug or unplug my pc adapter, the screen goes black for a second or so. I didnt experience this problem before, it started to occur a week or 2 ago.URL....
My T430s camera(Windows8) is not working now. The LED light is on when I start the camera, but no imamges show up. I checked the driver, and it's already the latest version. The camera was working at the begining when I got my laptop, but I don't know what happened to it.
my express cache doesn't seem to be working. i've recently had to format my laptop, ive got it all back working and installed the latest express cache software, everytime i run ECCMD.EXE -INFO from ele.exe i just keep getting the following:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:Windowssystem32>eccmd -info ExpressCache Command Version 188.8.131.52 Copyright® 2010-2013 Condusiv Technologies. Date Time: 7/7/2014 0:34:31:581 (JAMES-THINK #0)
After some virus problems I set up my system from the scratch, formatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows. I also downloaded the Lenovo System Updater, installed all updates and downloaded the ThinkVantage Solution Center. Now, the PC works again BUT the WiFi adapter does not work. It seems to be non-existent, if I press F9 it says I am suppossed to press the hardware switch. I have a ThinkPad Edge 15, it does not have such a switch at all.
In the hardware manager i find one network device without driver, so I suppose this is it. However, no driver seems to work. I downloaded the WiFi dirver(s) from the Lenovo website and installed them, nothing happens. What can I do?
Here are my specifications: -Thinkpad Edge 15 -Windows 7 Home Premium (OEM) - the driver I installed which did not work: Intel Wireless LAN (bg, abg, abgn) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - ThinkPad
I am pretty certain that the hardware works, before I set uo the system WiFi was not at all a problem.
I just installed Skype, mostly to test the camera, and the green light is on but I can't see anything. Skype just shows an outline of a camera with a diagonal line though it no matter which camera option I pick.
My Thinkpad boots successfully but then I cannot use either the keyboard or the mouse. No input at all possible. Even alt ctl del does not work. I have rebooted many times. I tried booting in SAFE MODE but that has not worked either. I do not have a recovery DVD at this location.
I've got a brandnew Thinkpad E530 with Windows 8 and integrated Camera. But the Camera is not wotking. When I start the Camera-App, the green Light of the Camera starts to shine, but there is no preview. Theres is only a picture of a crossed camera. Also if i start skype, my skype-partner can't see me.
I already had a look in the BIOS if the Camera is enabled (it is) and reinstalled the driver of the camera.
I have been using the Communications Utility (Lenovo - Web Conferencing) when I first bought the laptop, a few months ago everything was fine. But now when I press F5 (hotkey for camera options) there is a pop up with massage "Communication Utility Main UI has stopped working".
Everything is fine in Device Manager.
Is it a hardware problem? Is there a way to check?
I can't found my camera device in device manager and there is no imaging devices in device manager. There is no camera tab in Communication Settings (Fn+F5)...
I tried to install "Integrated Camera Driver (1.0M) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - Notebooks" "Integrated Camera Driver (0.3M) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - Notebooks" but nothing happened ..
In the first time when I installed the windows the camera was working but now it's not !!
My Laptop is : ThinkPad Edge E530 My OS is : Windows 7 32-bot
