    Windows 8.1 can't detect Lenovo G500s Touch webcam HELP


    I have a Lenovo G500s Touch computer that I bought at Best Buy in March. I noticed not long after I got it that my camera wasn't working with Skype. Not wanting to put DAYS into trying to figure it out, I waited until about a month ago to research what the problem was. (It is still under warranty) So this is about my 5th day spending most of the day trying to figure it out... nothing is working.

    I have 8.1 and it can't even FIND my camera. HELP, Please.

    Check Device Manager, to see if the camera is even showing in there with the driver installed. If it does not, go to Lenovo's Support site and download the correct driver for your device for the onboard camera.

    It is NOT showing up in device manager AND I have already downloaded driver(s) AND nothing is working. It won't even install it. Any other ideas?
