Hello and thank you for looking at my problem. My webcam has ceased to function. I have looked in Device Manager and see a problem with one of my Universal Serial Bus Controllers, listed as Unknown Device. I tried to update the driver without success. Device status is 'Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems (Code 43).' Here are my laptop specs: Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2 OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1, 64 bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9 Processor Count: 4 RAM: 3992 Mb Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, 1804 Mb Hard Drives: C: Total - 102399 MB, Free - 49663 MB; D: Total - 364198 MB, Free - 87276 MB; Motherboard: GIGABYTE, Q2542C Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

ok so code 43 is always generated when there is a hardware or software issue( which you have already try to install) usually by doing a cold shutdown of your computer or taking the battery out for some few seconds does correct it but if all that is not fixing it try disabling the device in control panel or you can roll back to the previous driver and allow windows to scan for hardware changes.one question did you do any changes to the computer before this started happening?

Thanks Ayge.. Will give that a bash. I don't recall making any changes and webcam is not listed in device manager. Maybe its died...I have had other issues like 2 letters on my keyboard giving up the ghost and yesterday my track pad stopped allowing me to hold down and select or highlight. Laptop is just over a year old and no water / shock damage that I know of.
