I'll be in the middle of doing something on my Sony VAIO SVT1412ACXS, and either the camera app or photos app will open out of nowhere. It's a touchscreen laptop, and I'm not sure if that has something to do with it. If the app is already running, the screen just switches to the app. If I end it on the task manager, the same thing happens, except it takes a couple seconds for the app to start up.

Additionally, camera would have times when it would stop working, and while using the camera app, it'd be a black screen reading 'please connect a camera' or 'there's an error with the camera.' When this happened, the camera wouldn't even show in the device manager and I wasn't able to reinstall a driver. However, the camera always eventually starts to work again.

Any ideas? Thanks!
