The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 comes with an integrated camera. As with all hardware and software, there can be glitches, especially when major operating system revisions are made. Fortunately, Lenovo (an IBM corporation) leaves a system open for updating the software to run the camera with newer operating systems or for when a problem occurs. Being able to use the hardware camera that is already installed will help save on items being carried when you take your portable laptop on the road.
- Skill level:
Navigate to Lenovo support website. Besides getting the appropriate software driver for the integrated camera on your X200 laptop, you can also find other hardware drivers and software for your computer system.
Download the file "7tca23ww.exe" from the Lenovo support website. This file will not only update your camera hardware for newer operating systems, it will fix problems that exist in older versions of Microsoft Windows.
Double-click "7tca23ww.exe" from it's download location on your Lenovo X200 laptop. Follow the onscreen instructions. Click "Next" in the "Select Destination Location" window when it shows up. Click "Install" when you get to the "Ready to Install" window.
Click "Finish" to complete the installation of the files. Delete the original "7tca23ww.exe" file from your computer after the installation is complete.
Open Microsoft Live and log into your account. Click "Actions," "Video" and "Start a Video Chat" to open your camera up and test. If you can see the a camera window open up with the view of yourself (or anything else that is in front of the camera) sitting in front of your computer, then everything is properly connected and you can start using your camera.
