Some very generic PC web camera model: NEWMB N-WC01

It goes like this, the camera works the first time with no problems, but whenever I for example stop using it in a program and try agin, the computer BSODs.
For example if I open Camera app to see it and close it, then open again, or if i have a camera scene in OBS and switch to another then back.

The BSOD says its a problem with "ky.sys", (SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION).

I uninstalled all camera drivers I had before and just plugged in this camera with its mic port as well for the generic windows ones and thats it.

It's almost certainly down to a problem with the driver for the camera. Open Device Manager, right-click on the camera and select uninstall. If you're asked whether you want uninstall the driver select Yes. Then reboot and run Windows Update, see whether that finds a better driver.
