Integrated webcam problem

\015 I have an integrated webcam on my laptop but every time I turn it on and move the screen on the laptop up or down I get a message (in ArcSoft Webcam) saying the connection to my camera was lost. It then gives me the option to select another device but this just changes the display resolution and I cannot see an image (although the webcam light stays on). At the same time a windows message pops up saying this USB device can perform faster if you connect to a high-speed USB 2.0 port. The only way to get the webcam to display an image again is to re-start the laptop. Any ideas how I fix this?\015

If it works fine when the hardware is not being moved that is a sign of a loose connection not a software problem. Mechanically the ribbon cable can have a fracture in the conductor or where it connects is not exactly seated. or the strain relief is just a little tight when the sceen is moved it pulls a little just enought to make or break a connection ever so slightly. My old Micronta has a flawed lcd there is a line that shows up travelling fron top to bottom in the viewing. I twist the sceen in a opposit direction and is changes and sometimes straightens out. Here there is manny comnnections that sit in an array patern that intersect inside the screen and this connection is more difficult to fine so I live with it. it is old and slow and needs a battery but I tried disassebling it to see if I can fix the connection and got to a point that I may destroy it all . The camera may have a the same type of problem so it is up to you to go to this point or luckly find the problem. Now knowing this you can shut that camera off and attach an over the counted 19 dollar camera that you will have to haul around or adj thwe screen and then boot the computer. But for sure it is hardware not software
Check on the manufacturer's website to see if there is any updates to the software for the camera. Also, update the actual drivers for the camera. Outside of that, if you still get the same error than that means that the camera is faulty. I'd just disable it and use a USB web camera.
