What does it look like? This?


I'm afraid you damaged the lens if it looks like that.

Looks like that small bump was big enough to completly brake your camera.. Im afraid there's no software fix for this, you'll probably be off with a new webcam.

Is there any visual damage if you look closely at the webcam?

Hi labibsharar,

It seems webcam is damaged and requires replacement. If the system is under warranty then please contact me through a private message and provide me your service tag and contact information so I may access your system records.

And, if the system is out of warranty then you contact our Expired Warranty Support at the link below:
