Hardware Drivers :: Windows 8.1 - Webcam Not Working After Waking Up From Hibernation
Dec 10, 2013
I have a DELL Inspiron 15 3521 running Windows 8.1 x64. Whenever I wake up the computer after hibernating my webcam is not working properly. A yellow exclamation mark is shown on the entry "Intel 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 1E2D" under USB Controllers in Device Manager.
I have a Dell E5530 using windows 8.1 Been using laptop for 5+ months. For the first time today, I clicked the Camera panel and received msg
"Connect a Camera".
Ran Dell PC diagnostics, no errors were found. I do not have a Imaging Device folder (that stores the Webcam) in Device Manager. Installed Dell Webcam Central, but when launched, I get msg "Please plug in a supported device" I am not able to run this application either.
I recently upgraded my new XPS 13 (L321X) to windows 8. Webcam central stopped working, It is getting detected in device manager. I tried installing the drivers again from dell site without any result. Whenever I open webcam it says close the other streaming video application to start video though I don't see any other video application going on in my system.
Had drive problems with PC so got new SSD drives and a Hybrid drive.All new drives so did tortuous route install win7 - upgrade to win 8.0 all worked then started acting up. My tech support worked on it for 2 days and gave up said I should backup and do a clean install from start. So I did.
Not yet put any backup files on so only operating system and devices (printer, wireless keyboard/mouse, wireless headset and 3webcams ( One Pluscom and two PCline ) checked device manager and found cameras with yellow exclamation mark and checked properties and saw this webcam.JPG . Download, install and do a reboot and see what happens.
I am obviously logged in as admin as I am the only user who Can use PC and checked permissions which are OK all users having full access.
I upgraded my laptop software to win8.1. My webcam in the device manager looks to the integrated camera but webcam is not working. I tested by Dell PC Diagnostics shows my webcam is installed and its picture from camera showed but windows camera app and all app don't show anything.
I have dell inspiron laptop and 32 bit windows-8. My laptop has inbuilt webcam and it was working fine. But i installed a new external webcam. And both the webcams stopped working. I tried installing driver software from the driver-DVD of my laptop but it also didnt fix it.
The webcam cannot be used by other softwares like skype.
HP's support site for the specific model M6-1035 lists no driver for the webcam. it was there under windows 7 but I don't recall ever deliberately installing a driver for it - I assumed win7 had it.
Windows 8.1 does not. nothing in 'devices', nothing under device manager, and no driver listed on the HP support site. the latter is not surprising since they don't provide a host of drivers for the laptop.
No keyboard-specific drivers [like for the function keys etc], wrong firmware for optical, and other small things.
I am facing a peculiar issues with my Vaio Machine. I use a Huwaei 3G E173 Modem for connecting Internet. I started using this in my new vaio machine too. Whenever I use the hibernate option, it tend to goto the last phase of Hibernation i.e the screen goes off, the fan starts screaming and after a moment it restarts. So, to be succinct, the new windows 8.1 machine doesn't enter in hibernation mode, if I have connected the modem. The modem has a CD Rom emulation for their proprietary software installation, so I thought it would be the cause and hence I tried to change Boot Options in UEFI BIOS to Primary, Secondary and Third as HDD, Network and External device from HDD, CD, Ext. Device.
I have also tried to disable that Power Management settings available in Driver Settings -> Hardware Settings and Un-tick the "Allow this device to Wake the computer"
P.S If I do not connect the computer to Internet with this modem and try to Hibernate it does the Job, when I use the Huwaei Modem only it creates the issue.
But nothing seems work out. Any resolution for this?
Windows 8 worked great until I shut it down, went to turn it back on and it is HIBERNATING. I shut it down, took the battery out, left it plugged out, but when I try to turn it back on it just says "hibernating".
I got a problem in Windows 8.1 which doesn't detect the integrated webcam. It worked fine the last week but today it just wont start. My laptop is a DELL Inspiron 14R 5437.
I already reinstalled the Chipset with no luck. Also, opened Device Manager but there was no "imaging devices" label. Did an unistall of USB Root Hub, then restarted, but nothing. Checked BIOS but dont know where to really enable/disable.
Build-in app Camera in windows 8.1 shows "to get started connect a camera". Skype displays "Skype couldn't find a webcam. With a webcam, you can make video calls..."
I am using Dell Latitude D520 running in Windows 8. I just bought a new webcam, installed the drivers without any difficulties. But when I try to view my webcam, either Amcap, yahoo messenger, or any programs or websites that displays my webcam, Windows 8 would prompt me that my PC encountered an error and restarts.
i have problem with my dualboot. When installing ubuntu 13.04 and window 8 along each other, windows 8 won't hybernate (screen just gets blank and lock itself), tha same with turning computer off (when fast bootup is enabled). When i recover mbr using bootrec.exe /fixmbr (basicly switch back from GRUB2 so i cannot boot into linux) everything works fine.
I have windows 8 pro in my desktop.When i started to run nfs mw 1 it opened but while loading for gameplay it stops working and windows says that there is a problem to work the program properly,so i will have to close it.I have tried for all compatibility mode but its still does not work.
I have a bluetooth module (Broadcom 2070) installed in my laptop.The hardware seems to be functioning fine (at least from Device Manager). However, when I go to Bluetooth Settings, all I see is this:
I'm not able to remove the Bluetooth Mouse there, and I'm also not able to detect any Bluetooth devices at all. I've even tried to use a Bluetooth dongle but to no avail. I've seen some suggested solutions to enable Bluetooth Support Services (which I have, and placed under Local Access), but this doesn't work for me as well.
I have just got a nearly new Toshiba laptop and updated to Windows 8.1. Since then I have been unable to connect any device to it via Bluetooth. It was able to see the devices and try to connect but as soon as it connected the connection was dropped and the devices reported failed to connect error. I reinstalled the Bluetooth driver with the latest driver from the Toshiba website and now the Laptop wont even see any devices.

I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 and yesterday evening I updated from windows 8 to windows 8.1. This went good. Only this morning I noticed my webcam don't work anymore. Before the update it worked fine. I use it daily to talk with my girl.
The only applicatie we use it for is facebook. When I use Dell Systeem Detect, and I let it check my webcam, it shows and it gives images. So I think it is not a problem of the hardware.
I also tried to download Dell Webcam Manager 2.0 but that says I dont have a special card in my laptop. Also when typed in my service tag in de website, I didn't get any new drivers / programs for the webcam.
One thing I noticed about Windows 8 is that there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to put my laptop into hibernation. For clarification, this means that that everything that is loaded into the RAM is written to a file on the HDD. The device then fully powers down. Upon pressing the power button again, the device will resume, similar to the way it does in sleep mode, but without have the power drain associated with storing the windows session in the volatile memory.
I went into the power settings and enabled hybrid sleep for both plugged in and on battery, but when I clicking on the power option in settings (by using the shortcut Win + I or by moving your mouse to the bottom left corner of the screen) there is only an option to put it into sleep mode. I know that it isn't doing hibernation because when it goes into hibernation, you must press the power button to bring it out of hibernation. I want it this way to reduce battery drain and to prevent accidental resuming if the laptop somehow opens while in my backpack...
Recently I've upgraded my toshiba laptop with w7 to Windows 8.1 (without keeping any settings), but I cant get my synaptics touchpad to work.
Windows automatically installed some drivers for the touchpad but it didnt work. Then I downloaded newest generic drivers from synaptics website but they wouldnt install - I get an "installation failed" error without any elaboration.
So I've installed synaptics driver that was provided for my laptop for win 7. It installed nicely, but the touchpad still doesnt work - disabling/enabling it in synaptics tab in mouse settings doesnt change anything.
I thought that maybe now the generic driver will install that I have an older synaptics version installed and not some random windows driver, but no, the installation still fails.
The story unfolds :P Next I downloaded toshiba synaprics driver for win 8.1 that was developed for some newer laptop model as mine is no longer supported. The installation went smoothly but the touchpad still doesnt work.....
Installed windows 8.1 preview last night and after installing i get stuck at the lock screen, cant click or punch keys to log in. Since the powers that be decided to change how you boot into safe mode is my only option to format?
