    Hi all. I am using a Novero Solana laptop with an intergrated webcam. I tried testing the webcam in Skype but it shows black screen (I even tried changing brightness, contrast etc in Skype). In device manager under Imaging devices-USB camera the details are:

    *Driver provider: Microsoft
    *Driver version: 6.2.9200.16384

    It also says "This device is working properly". I clicked "Update driver" but still says up-to-date.:upset:

    I tried checking for drivers on the Novero homepage but there was nothing but "Novero software update tool". I loaded it and it only had software updates for Novero bluetooth devices. :dread:

    I have tried searching for a generic webcam driver but haven't had any luck :apologetic:. Help would be much appreciated.
