Check for an outdated webcam driver

Select the Start button, type Device Manager, and then select Device Manager from the search results.
Find your webcam under Imaging devices or Sound, video and game controllers.
Press and hold (or right-click) the name of your webcam, and then select Properties.
Select the Driver tab, select the Driver Details button, and look for a file name that includes stream.sys. If it’s there, your webcam was designed before Windows 7 and you'll have to replace it with a newer webcam.
If you don't find a file name that includes stream.sys, try rolling back your webcam driver.

Roll back your webcam driver

In Device Manager, press and hold (or right-click) your webcam, and then select Properties.
Select the Driver tab, select Roll Back Driver, and then choose Yes. (Note that some drivers don’t provide a rollback option.)
After the rollback is complete, restart your PC, and then try opening the Camera app again.
If rolling back didn’t work or isn’t available, uninstall your webcam driver and scan for hardware changes.

Uninstall your webcam driver and scan for hardware changes

In Device Manager, press and hold (or right-click) your webcam, and then select Properties.
Select the Driver tab, select Uninstall > Delete the driver software for this device, and then select OK.
In Device Manager, on the Action menu, select Scan for hardware changes. Wait for it to scan and reinstall updated drivers, restart your PC, and then try opening the Camera app again.
If your webcam still doesn’t work, try looking for help on the webcam manufacturer’s website.

Hello Andre! I am very determined to get this camera fixed, as I need it for college purposes. My laptop is a HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC. The System SKU is G6U09UA#ABA. I've tried almost every step necessary to enable camera settings. Hope to hear from you soon.
