Greetings!

I have an MSI GS70 laptop here , its about 1 month old and the webcam has stopped working,

It has worked earlier, Nothing happens when I try to start it and when I try to find it in the device manager it is not there.

Any idea what I can try?

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: MSI GS70 Gaming laptop Webcam not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok I have an MSI GT70, did you try activating it via the toolbar at the top of the screen that comes on MSI laptops. It looks like a tiny paperclip at the top of the screen in the center, there should be once you open that toolbar up an option to activate the webcam.

I have not used it in quite a while. Now when I try and use it, the webcam does not show up in Device Manager. If I bring up Windows Live Messenger > Tools > Audio Video setup, it states that no webcam is installed.

I have tried reinstalling the latest webcam driver, resetting bios to the default values, using System Restore to restore the original driver, and I have reinstalled the latest bios. None of these actions had any affect.

Is there anything that would cause it to be disabled? Why doesn't my laptop find the webcam/webcam driver?

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N411z with Windows 7 installed and I haven't been able to get any webcam to work for some time now. First my internal webcam stopped working and no hardware is detected for it. I fixed it once by uninstalling the USB hardware, but it broke yet again.

Due to not being able to fix that webcam, and wanting to skype with friends, I have bought external webcams. The first one stopped working, but I attributed that to the fact that it was $5 on Amazon. So recently I bought the Logitech C250 online and have tried that one out. It installs drivers, but the webcam drivers don't work correctly. It works fine as a microphone but for some reason the imaging drivers don't download correctly.

Can anyone help me with this? I'd love to be able to skype and hangout with my friends again! Thanks!

My built in webcam just stopped working all of a sudden. I can't get it to work with Cyberlink YouCam or any other website that uses the webcam. I have a Sony Vaio model number VGN-CR120E. When I go to Device Manager and look under imaging devices, there's Sony Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC6. There is no little exclamation mark next to it. It is enabled, and I already right clicked on it and clicked the update driver software. It told me that it does not need to be updated. I am stumped. The green light doesn't turn on, either.

What should I do?

Thank you in advance.

Hey guys,

I just bought an MSi GS70 about a week ago, and I noticed that while playing any graphically intensive game, like Battlefield 3, the CPU gets very hot.

I showed a max temperature of 95 degrees Celsius while playing BF3. Is this temperature cause for concern? I'm thinking about sending it back for a replacement because I have read that some of these computers are shipped with a bad thermal pasting job, which could be causing the problems to some extent.

So basically what I want to know is, do you think I should send it back for a replacement, or just get a cooling pad for use 90% of the time that I am gaming and hope that it doesn't end up ruining something on the inside?

I knew it would run hot, but I wasn't expecting it to be this hot.

Thank you
 

A:MSi GS70 CPU Overheating

After a little research your temps seem to be what is considered normal for that laptop, and within intel specs.

I would not worry unless you have overheating/ shut down issues.

I'm sorry but this is really getting on my nerves. My laptop's webcam is just not working at all. It has been not working for a while now, but nothing really happened to it. I remember Skyping with someone and making a video, and then the next day it was not working. I tried going to device manager, but there's nothing there with a caution or exclamation mark on it except for Lexmark X422 (it has a Code 10) but I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with the cam, I might be wrong. I've tried with Skype and other capture softwares, online chatrooms and stuff, everywhere it shows that I have no webcam available, but it's built in so I don't get it.

Windows 7 Home Premium
Manufacturer: Acer
Model: Aspire 5733Z
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU P6100 2.00 GHz
Installed memory: 4.00 GB
System type: 64-bit Operating System
 

A:Webcam not working?

If it's not listed in Device Manager or there's no error against "Imaging Device", it means the webcam itself is faulty (it's internal wiring damaged or something else damaged which prevents Windows from detecting it - effectively it no longer exists.

The Lexmark X422 (Code 10) refers to a printer.

You can get around your webcam problem by buying an external one which plugs into a USB port.

So I restarted my computer and then plugged the USB cable in but it's not working. When I plugged the USB in is said Windows is installing USB imaging device. But nothing is happening and Skype says it cannot access the webcam. Please help...so frustrating!!

I just uninstalled all programs and drivers associated with the veo webcam...maybe a fresh start will help?

You may be able to install a vista driver by installing it in "compatibility mode"

You do that by right clicking the installer>properties>compatibility>choose vista

Let us know if you need additional assistance.

So my HP Webcam wasn't able to be recognized by any software so I went to Device Manager and Uninstalled the driver after checking for a newer version. Afterwards it only installed as a USB Video Device.

I just had to completely reinstall my Windows 7 OS so it didn't have the driver saved.

Any way I can get it to be recognized again?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
I've searched and read a number of the forums on problems with webcams, checking the device manager etc. The webcam isn't listed in the device manager, and the USB drivers are all working. If I need to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, which ones are they, something like this; Inter (R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Control - 3B34 ? I downloaded an update for this driver above compatible with the computer model but that hasn't worked.
I deleted the YouCam program as well, and reinstalled a later version, but it still says there's no webcam. Which has been the case for 6 weeks now.
It's a Fujitsu AH530.
Any help, to save taking it to the technician would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Hi HarlequinPuppet

I checked Toshiba's support site here

1. You might check for the downloads there also for your specific model
2. And as to your model, you'd need be more specifc as looks like there are 6 or so different Toshiba L500D models (note the STxxxx after each one)

Which exact model do you have? Also, try this, might reveal something

Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post

Hi, to better help, I would ask for more information. Things like where can't you get the webcam to work, has it ever worked, if it is only certain programs that can;t use it, which are they, etc.

As for the problem. Can you go to Dell Inspiron 1521 driver down load page and download the driver for the webcam. (It will be under Inpute Device Drivers).

Then go to your Device Manager (if you don't know where it is I can help you with that) and check for any yellow marks there. If there are any, please post them here. Also in the Device Manager, please uninstall the webcam driver.

Then install the webcam driver from the file you just download. See if that helps.

If you aren't sure how to do something, please post and I will give you the needed info.

Also please let us know how the problem is after this.

You need to locate the website of the manufacturer, they should have downloadable drivers.

Any possible workaround for my problem??

Hi TobyMiller, Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on your HP Pavilion g6-1337sa Notebook   and  HP Webcam 101 not functioning correctly. Make sure you have no external USB devices connected while troubleshooting. Try opening Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager. In Device Manager, locate the Webcam Driver, and then double-click the device  name. Then locate the USB driver and uninstall this device. Click the Driver tab, and then click Rollback Driver. Restart the computer. Hope this helps. Thanks.

You might have to go into the device manager in the system tab; and manually add the device and let windows try and find and install the driver(s) for it that way. Give that a shot and see if that does anything to resolve the issue. If not post back and we can go from there.

A:Webcam Isn't Working

Not sure if all that crap was clear.
The software downloaded and installed seemingly fine.
You import ....
Disk (hard drive)
DC (digital camera)
TWAIN (scanner, camera)
DV (video source, video capture card)

Whatever, none of those worked. The software prompts, but doesn't have the webcam in it's arsenal. You know, no sign it even thinks it is on the system. I will no doubt completely reinstall it tomorrow morning if something doesn't become clearer to me.

Oh, I've downloaded some other software. I'll try it later. Let you know.

Alright, so, I have no idea where to ask this question.. so I just asked it here. But, anyways, my laptop has a webcam built in it, and I've never had a problem with it up until now. I've had it for over a year. Now, when I open the webcam, it displays a lime green screen. I have tried re starting my computer, opening and closing the webcam, and even hitting it. Nothing is working. Please help me. I'm illiterate when it comes to technology.
 

A:Webcam not working. fml.

The application for your cam has a lime green screen or the whole notebook screen goes lime green when you start the cam up?

Not a good idea hitting the web cam in the lid there, have you uninstalled the drivers and re-installed them?

What make is the notebook? what have you done in the way of updates/adding programs, since this problem started?

my webcam has a really blurry picture right now and i dont know why its a Gear Head WC535I Web Cam, what should i do??
 

A:My Webcam's not working!!

Bluriness, would typically indicate a hardware issue (ie: camera problem). You can try uninstalling the cam, rebooting, and reinstalling.

Currently my web cam (cyber snipa scout) will not work all it displays is a black image (yes the lens cover is off). Also windows will not let me uninstall the driver files that came on the CD it gives an error "setupDLL\setupDLL.cpp(409) $7.0.100.1342 @ Windows XP Service pack 2 (2600) BT_Other 46624.52". Please can you help me, I know the problem isn't windows 7 as my brother uses the same webcam, but I'm lost for ideas.

Thanks
 

A:Trying to get webcam working

You might want to try seeing if you can get the drivers from the manufacturer's website. You can also try the cam on another computer, just to see if the issue is the hardware itself.

I have used my webcamera with SKYPE for video chat, but it is no longer working.
I believe that it may have been compromised. A few months ago while surfing the net I log onto a site when my sceen changed; it stated that it was the FBI and I logged onto a forbidden site and that I should send them $100 or face criminal charges (I believed this for about a nano-second).
I rebooted into safe mode, for it now was the only way to use my computer, and I removed the malware trogan virus. But now my webcam does not work. Under the control panel the camera states that it is working properly and it has the latest driver updates. And the same goes for SKYPE it is updated as well but seem to not be able to activate my video camera.
Suggestions, hep, please .

I just acquired this used laptop (Pavilion dv7-2173cl)which was upgraded to W7 pro 32-bit.

Device manager says "This device is working properly". Indeed it works with google chat but I cannot make it work alone, on its own. The cam shortcut does not make it turn on; all it does is open a box for properties.

This is my first 18 hours with W7. Already I miss Vista.

It's ok, folks. I solved the problem. Turned out I was using an old webcam icon.

I have a Compaq CQ58 and just recently i've started to notice that the webcam which is built into the laptop isn't working. I noticed this when trying to call someone on skype and then today tested it with the cyberlink youcam program that came with the laptop and it doesn't work there also, any help??

Thanks

A:Built In Webcam Not Working

Which version of the Compaq CQ58 Laptop do you have?.

Check if your webcam works properly with another application. (you said you have done this and it did not work).
Update your webcam drivers from its manufacturer’s website.

Let me know which version you have and i might be able to offer some more advice.

Hey Guys,
I have a problem. On my friends laptop there is a webcam light that is supposed to light up when the webcam is active but it doesn't. Its a Presario CQ70 116EM.

Could it have been somehow disabled? I have tried everything to get it working again but have hit a dead end.

Any thoughts?
Thanks

A:Webcam Light Not Working

Hi Fmjc001,

Here is a link to the main support pages for the laptop: Compaq Presario CQ70-116EM Notebook PC*

I have had a look through some (but not all) of the available information and I cannot find anything regarding this light, other than it is supposed to illuminate when the webcam is accessed.

Is the webcam functioning correctly other than this light failing to come on? It could be that the light has failed. You can get a replacement webcam module, but in order to fit it you will need to disassemble the laptop - this is certainly not a job for the faint-hearted. Consequently, if this is the only fault and there is nothing actually wrong with the webcam itself, I would be inclined to leave it alone.

Ever since I installed Windows 7 on my dv7 lappy, the biult-in HP webcam only gives me a black screen. The computer tells me it's working fine, and that it has the latest drivers. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers, and it didn't help.

A:Advent webcam not working!!!!!!!!

Yes it does have a webcam, but it may be faulty or the webcam driver may be missing.
Have a look in Device Manager. If there's no webcam listed under "Imaging Devices", and there are no yellow question marks in Device Manager, it means the webcam itself is faulty. Quickest fix for that is to buy a third-party webcam.

If there is a yellow question-mark in Device Manager, it may mean the webcam just needs a driver installing, but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be one on the driver page here: http://www.adventcomputers.co.uk/product-download-select/217

Try installing the Chipset drivers, that may include the driver for the webcam but I can't guarantee it.

Built-in webcam not working... So I was trying to use my Webcam on Skype and it said it wasn't working. So I checked the ArcSoft Webcam Campanion 3 to see if my camera was connected. It said "A webcam was not found or is not working properly. Please click Connect button and try again." So I click on the Connect button and it tells me "Camera not found. The camera is either being used by another application or is not connected. Make sure the cam is connected and working properly." I have no idea what to do!

My laptop is HP and the model is G62 361-TX. I use Windows Ultimate and Norton Antivirus.
