Fix 1: Update your camera driver

Perhaps the most common cause of the ‘Internet Explorer has stopped working’ error is a missing/outdated/corrupt/faulty camera driver.

Fortunately, this is also one of the easiest problems to fix. 

There are two ways to update your sound card driver: manually and automatically.

Manual driver update – You can update your camera driver manually by going to the manufacturer’s website for your webcam, and searching for the most recent correct driver. Be sure to choose only drivers that are compatible with your Windows version.

Automatic driver update – If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your video and monitor drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for your exact webcam, and your Windows version, and it will download and install them correctly:

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

  3. Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

  4. Restart your computer and check if your webcam springs to life.

Fix 2: Turn on your webcam 

In very rare cases, the camera feature on your PC may have been disabled and hence the imaging devices missing in Device Manager issue. So we should make sure to turn it back on to fix the problem.

To do so:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key   and type camera settings. Then click on Camera privacy settings.

  2. Make sure the Allow apps to access your camera toggle is On.

  3. Check if your webcam works fine this time.
