    Is it available to use camera on Windows Hello before? Or it is your first configuration?
    Is it a local computer or domain joined computer?

    We could try the following steps to troubleshoot your issue.

    • Try to update camera driver to latest.
    • Or delete the existing driver and reboot computer to load a new camera driver automatically.
    • Go to C:\Windows\System32\WinBioPlugIns\FaceDriver to check if inf. file exist, such as HelloFace.inf and HelloFaceMigration.inf. If yes, try to click and install them, then reboot computer.
    • Open "services.msc" and restart "Windows Biometric Service"
    • Go to Settings\Update & Security\Windows Update to check for update and install it.
    • Go to C:\Windows\System32\WinBioDatabase, back up the folder and delete it.
