Google search? Was it a upgrade or a clean install?

Can you search google?
There should be a video or write up on how to partially take apart your laptop and unplug/remove the camera. Then when you're ready you can fix or install a new camera. Parts might be available on ebay.

I searched almost every website, weblogs, ... via google, but found nothing!!
Clean install, because my original windows was home premium and it was old (2009 I think.)

I think Microsoft wanted their OS to be compatible with many different types of hardware. Thus less people calling support when something doesn't work. That's why Windows always tries to install a driver when it sees a new piece of hardware, and disabling that "feature" is difficult/not allowed.

Search on google for screen removal. You should be able to see the wiring for the camera when the bezel is removed. Then follow the wiring and unplug it. It sounds to me like the wires are broken at the hinge area and are making intermittent contact.

yea Havoc, I think it is exactly as you said. So, I think the only choice for me is opening the case and unplugging my usb camera.

Thanks all you guys.

Go to your programs folder and just delete the whole webcam program. Or turn it off in Services.

cheers. I think I could solve my problem. As its name conveys "USB 2.0 camera", it uses an internal usb port.
there is an entry in the device manager "Universal serial Bus Controllers", which controls internal and external
usb drivers and devices. I disabled one of my Generic USB hubs then USB composite device disabled automatically and my webcam disappeard from device manager as well!! from then windows does not detect automatically my webcam.

that's great.
