:rolleyes:Report your windows Op-System and Kaspersky total security version. Also

what webCam brand is that : like Logitech, Microsoft LifeCam - Razer kiyo.,Etc.  


Try to uninstall the webCam driver : open Device Manager >> Locate your webCam and

right click it >> select Uninstall device >> A confirmation dialog appears - click Uninstall

to continue : Now click Scan for "Hardware changes" icon and wait while windows

install the necessary drivers. Restart Pc + check if the - Black screen still there


if so repeat the uninstall task. Did it work..?  Also another trick is to use a flashlight or

your Phone torch light, point it to the camera : Have work out for some users - Post back

Try pressing Fn+F6 on your keyboard or googlle how to turn on camera on MSI  Laptop.

Like Lenovo(through Lenovo Vantage) , MSI likely uses  their own program/drivers to operate the camera.
