WEBCAM not recognized on Lenovo Y550

Postby jk236 on Mon Jan 18, 2010 9:47 pm

Pretty basic problem.
I have a Lenovo y550 with a built in web cam, and it says no camera is detected in any program.
Help?

In a terminal copy and paste the results from "lspci", this should let us see if it's seen and what make it is. There isn't some switch or key combo to turn it on or off?
