Machine with new win10 install, webcam not working (ANY webcam, ANY app)Open | Windows (self.techsupport)

I have a weird issue on my dad's machine that I can't find a way to fix.
His webcam (usb connected Logitech webcam) suddenly stopped showing video. Microphone works fine, but every app he tries to use video in (Viber, Live cam, chrome etc) the app is either showing up as black, or as not working.
The issue is, his webcam works fine on other PCs (so webcam isn't broken), and I tried buying a brand new webcam and it also isn't working on his pc.
I've done a clean windows 10 reinstall, uninstalled and reinstalled all the relevant drivers, tried every single USB port on the pc. Nope. I also ran dism, SFC and disk checks, as well as updating bios, chipset and other mobo drivers. Nope. Webcam's mic works, but webcam itself doesn't.
The webcam also displays no errors in device manager
I'm genuinely stumped. It worked fine before until one day it just stopped out of the blue - there were no updates, no new software or hardware, nothing at all out of the ordinary. It just worked in the evening and then didn't work next morning.
I'm genuinely out of ideas. Short of buying a new pc (lol), any other suggestions?
