I purchased and have happily had a Acer Predator Helios 300 since November 2017.
2 days ago, I had a Skype teleconference, where my video screen worked just fine, however unfortunately earlier today, when trying to make a video call on Facebook messenger, I got a message popup, to the effect of "give permission for camera use". This was odd, as I had done similar calls in the past with no issue. Between the two timepoints, I uninstalled programs and freed up harddrive space, but I did not remotely touch anything with system/hardware that would have resulted in this kind of an error:
Laptop is up to date with regards to windows updates.
When I open up Camera, the following error message is presented: Error 0xA00F4244<NoCamerasAreAttached>.
Here is Device manager:
Any idea how I would trouble shoot this? Any guess as to whether I'm dealing with a hardware issue, or driver/software issue?
