Let's say you don't want to do your own laptop repair.

Why not add some USB clip on web cam? It's far cheaper than a shop or other parts.

Use SlimDrivers

Try using a program like Slimdrivers ( It will automatically search for new drivers for your device.
If that doesn't work, use the Devices program and roll back the driver.
