Error Code 0xA00F4244 Cannot Find My Camera

Asked By 5 points N/A Posted on -

I have a Toshiba Satellite C55-C5379 laptop running on Windows 10. Trying to use the built-in camera but I get this error code. Went to Device Manager to look at drivers and viewed hidden items, there is no camera anywhere – not in Imaging Devices; Sound, Video or Game Devices, nowhere! I’ve tried scanning for hardware changes, rebooting, pretty much everything with no luck.

I’ve reviewed other support questions and answers and tried everything suggested by the MS Support and Community folks. The Toshiba website was completely useless so I’m hoping you brilliant folks can help! Please let me know how I can get this camera working!

The full error reads:

“We can’t find your camera
Check to be sure it’s connected and installed properly, that it isn’t being blocked by antivirus software, and that your camera drivers are up-to-date.
If you need it, here’s the error code:

First thing to do when you encounter this error on Windows 10 is to turn on the Camera app. If this is the first time you will be setting up your webcam, you need to check if the Camera app is enabled or disabled. Press the Windows key + I to open “Windows Settings” then open the “Privacy” category.

On the left pane, select “Camera” then under “Allow apps to access your camera” section on the right, toggle the option to “On.” If this doesn’t work, try updating your camera driver. Download the latest driver from the manufacturer’s website. For your laptop, go to Toshiba Satellite C55-C5379. Select your correct operating system from the “Select an Operating System” dropdown list.

Go to “Drivers & Updates” tab then download and install all available drivers and software for your laptop especially for the camera. If this doesn’t work, try rolling back the driver. Right-click “Start” then select “Device Manager.” Expand “Imaging devices” then double-click your webcam to open the “Properties.” Next, go to “Driver” tab then click “Roll Back Driver” and then click “OK.”

When you are finished, restart the computer.
