When I open the camera app or use online video I get a message saying the camera could not be found and an error message 0xA00F4244. Looked at Properties of webcam in Device Manager, all drivers up to date but message saying not connected (Code 45)
@SueA1 here's 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 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.
