Hi everybody,

I own Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T.

I have problem with front webcam since I upgraded to Windows 10 one year ago.
Webcam is shown in device manager as hidden device with "code 45".
Normally I would think that it is not working at all but every now and then it works. Usually after some bigger windows update it works for couple of minutes or till next restart. So I think that it's more Windows problem then camera itself.

Do anybody experienced anything similar?

p.s.: when I tried to downgrade back to Win 8 it was the same. When I bought this laptop used it worked fine. Everything went wrong after upgrade to Win 10.

Thank you very much

I didn't install any of those. I tried clean installs too. It didn't work from clean system. I should mention that there are no official drivers for this webcam from Samsung.
