Method 1: Change the Integrated Camera driver to USB Video Device driver

I don't really know if it is come with the official Lenovo E460 driver that I downloaded and installed or it is come from the Windows update, but in my case I have 2 compatible camera driver, but the Integrated Camera driver are chosen by the system to be installed.

- Open "Device Manager" (just click Windows button and type device manager)
- Right click the "Integrated Camera" under Imaging devices and choose Update driver.
- Choose "Browse my computer for drivers" then choose "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"
- Now, you can see, there are 2 compatible drivers for the camera

Method 3: Download and Install/Update Camera driver from Microsoft Update Catalog

So, I manage to find the latest driver for Camera from Microsoft Update Catalog.

My camera driver vendor is SunplusIT, here we go:

- Download the camera driver from Microsoft Update Catalog, currently this is the latest driver : DOWNLOAD
- The file extension is .cab, so you need to extract all the content to a folder first
- Open "Device Manager" (just click Windows button and type device manager)
- Right click the "Integrated Camera" under Imaging devices and choose "Update driver"
- Choose "Browse my computer for drivers" then choose "Browse"
- Locate the newly extracted driver and choose the folder
