Webcam not getting detected - Laptops |Windows10|

Internal Webcam Not working inside Windows 10: 

Windows 10 users may come across the issue when they will notice that the Webcam is not at all working and not getting detected in device manager in laptops & all in one computer.

May get worried that Webcam itself has gone faulty, but it is too soon to worry, so we have simple and easy issue identification technique and we can resolve the issue as well.

But before we proceed we need to verify whether it is a Software issue or Hardware (About which you are worried) issue.

Issue Identification:

First, we will go to the device manager and check for if the Webcam is getting detected under Other Devices, Imaging Devices or Webcam, it should get detected in either one of them.

If getting detected, then it is a simple issue with drivers open properties to check for status and try to uninstall and reinstall the driver form appropriate source.

Just in case it is not at all getting detected in device manager then there is no way to work around with the drivers, hence in this condition, we need to check the Webcam is set to on in system BIOS or not.

To check it I will recommend checking it in BIOS, depending upon your system’s manufacturer go into BIOS, nowadays most of the BIOS manufacturer supports have the option to turn Webcam on and off in BIOS.

If the option is not present in BIOS then it should be by default on or you do not have the webcam, check your invoice details and confirm your laptop has this feature, and just in case if it was working fine better then you do not need to check it in the invoice. Now we are sure that webcam is all set in BIOS so now we will try the below fix.  


Go to device manager and click on view menu on top select View Hidden Devices, now see if you see anything under Imaging Devices or Webcam, just in case you find something new in there which is transparent just right click them and click on Uninstall, then go to Device manufacturer or chipset Manufacturer website and install the chipset drivers & USB drivers, Because Webcam works through internal USB port.  now restart the computer. You will find it is working just fine now.

In most of the cases, you will find this specific issue when the customer will report after doing operating system installation their Webcam is not working. Chipset driver and USB drivers are a fix for this issues.
