I bought a webcam some time back and I have been using it without experiencing any problems. Yesterday, there was a blackout yet I did not have any power backup. When I restarted my computer, I realized that my webcam is not functioning; I do not understand what happened, and when I check the drivers, it looks just fine.
Please, advise on a possible soft fix webcam that will be able to sort this issue out.
How do I get a working softe fix webcam for my device?
Hi there Mili Nelson,
Unfortunately, from the given details I cannot determine if the problem is in software or hardware.
Sometimes after the power blackout things get a bit messed up and only a clean computer restart is required for everything to work again. The first thing you should do is to turn off your computer completely proper way, leaving it turned off for a minute or two and then turn it on again and see what happens with your webcam.
If you cannot see it at all, try to play with plugging it into another port and see if that helps.
Also, in case you can see your camera in the system but cannot use it, even you see your drivers as correctly installed, you may want to reinstall the webcam drivers.
