The integral camera was originally functioning. In the middle of a Zoom meeting the video stopped working. When I tried to access the camera the response was OxAOOF4244 <NoCamerasAreAttached>
Going into Device Manage - the camera is not in the list under camera or imaging devices, and cannot be reinstated using the update in Device Manager.
Following advice I used System Restore back dated to when the camera was working. It worked for a number of days before 'disappearing again'. I tried to use System Restore again, but the camera was not found in this way a second time!
I have checked and the security button is on the correct setting and hasn't been inadvertently switched on
I reviewed your post and I understand that the webcam is not working on your computer.
Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.
Here are a few steps to resolve the issue, start with checking for the webcam kill switch (if available on your model) and ensure its turned on,
That said, If your webcam has stopped working after installing a new update, you should uninstall the update and roll back to the older version. You will have to open Device Manager > right-click on the device > select Properties > switch to Driver tab > click on Roll Back Driver button > select Yes on the next window. After that, you need to restart your PC to check whether it is working.
If you continue facing the issue, then make sure that the webcam enabled in the privacy settings.
select the Start button, select Settings > Privacy > Camera, and then turn on Let apps use my camera.
From there, turn on each of the listed apps where you want to use the camera.
If that doesn't work or there were no updates before the issue occurred, you might need to uninstall the webcam driver.
To do this, open Device Manager > right-click on the device > select Properties > switch to Driver tab > click on Uninstall Device button.
Restart your computer and then open Device Manager again and click on Action > Scan for hardware changes. (this would automatically reinstall the best drivers for it)
Once done, I suggest you install all the latest pending Windows updates as below and check if it helps.
Go to “settings” and click on “update and security”.
Under tab “Windows update”, click on the icon “check for updates”.
Then once you find the pending updates install it and check.
Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
