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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, My built in camera is working since the day I bought it and It has been reformatted last 4 months and it's still working until last month. I can't find the icon anymore where I used to click if I'm gonna take picture or record a video. And even in video calls, it stopped working. The driver just disappeared. I can promise I never had deleted it or anything. Please anyone, help me out on this one :'( My notebook is a Toshiba NB300 and the name that says beside the built in camera on top of the screen is "Web Camera" Heeeeeeeeeelp pleeeeeeeeaseeeee Oh and I've tried downloading web cam drivers from the internet but it doesn't work. I have WIndows xp

Welcome to TSF,

Go to your computer's Device Manager (right click My Computer, select Manage,locate Device Manager) find the devices in question and see if there are any symbols (? X or !) on the Webcam and any other devices. If found, right click and choose uninstall, reboot your computer and see if your computer will automatically install the drivers.

If that didn't work, please visit the Sony site and driver the latest drivers for the webcam and audio.

A:SOLVED!! Built-in Camera not working

Webcam is not detected or unable to turn on the camera. Before going to the below troubleshooting flow, please give a quick check. Try different apps to identify whether it is a hardware problem. Different apps include Youcam, Skype, Line, Facebook messenger, etc.The issue may be caused by:Camera driver is out of date or not installed correctlyCamera was disabled in Device ManagerCamera was set off under Privacy or Lenovo SettingsHardware is brokenConfirm webcam is on under PrivacyIn Windows 8/8.1, open Charms Bar via the desktop and click on Settings option. Click on PC info or Change PC settings -> Privacy -> Webcam. Slide on the webcam or configure to Let these apps use my webcam.In Windows 10, open Settings -> Privacy -> Webcam. Slide on the webcam or configure to Let these apps use my webcam.For models with Lenovo Settings installed, open Lenovo Settings and ensure camera is onCheck the camera is recognized correctly in Device ManagerOpen Device Manager. Navigate to Imaging devices.If there is no imaging devices, it indicates no camera modem configured or camera hardware failure. Suggest to contact Lenovo local service provider for more help.A yellow exclamation means indicates camera driver not installed properly or is out of date. You can right-click and select Uninstall. Then right-click Imaging devices and select Scan for hardware change.If the yellow exclamation mark still exists, go to to search your product name and find the responding camera driver to install and update. For certain model, there is no seperate camera driver, instead you need to install Windows inbox driver.)Check in Device Manager if camera was disabledUnder Imaging device, one of these two options Lenovo Easycamera or Integrated camera will show up. If a down arrow shown, it indicates camera device was disabled. Right-click Lenovo EasyCamera or Integrated camera to select Enable.Hardware failure is of high possibility.

I contacted Lenovo support about a month ago because my laptop's built-in camera didn't work. A team member took remote access/control of my laptop and fixed the problem by turning off a certain privacy setting. After that, my camera worked.  However, I think I'm having the same problem again but don't know how to change the setting. My drivers are up to date so that is not the issue. Does anyone have any idea what setting he changed and how to get there? Thanks!!

am using Asus n61jv, i bought it since 2010, ihave been suffering from this problem for three years... but finally i've managed to make the web cam work!!!
In one word this problem is a mechanical problem caused by the manufacture and it has nothing with other softwares or updates.. what i did was so simple, i've squeezed the area around the camera jus before running the program (in my case i've run lifeframe3 and smartlogon manager) and keep squeezing untill the camera start to show and then leave it, for most of cases camera wont stop by it's own, but if it did then simply close the program, squeeze and run again. i know it's sound annoying a liitle bit but it is better than no camera at all !!
I hope this will work for you all and good luck

1. What's the make and exact model of your computer?
2. What version of Windows is running on the computer?
3. Have you gone to the computer provider's support site and looked for a hardware specific web cam driver?
4. The current name "USB 2.0 cam" sounds like it might be using the Windows generic driver. Open Device Manager, right click the cam->Properties then Driver tab. Who is the Driver Provider? (if it says Microsoft, that's the generic cam driver)

My new netbook has a built in camera that I'd like to use - however, there doesn't appear to be any on-board software to do so.

When the netbook was new the camera would show up in "My Computer" but now it doesn't - which I believe was caused by my disabling a number of services. The only other cause I can think of would be the removal of bloatware, but I tried to be very careful when doing this by researching everything first.

Anyway, the OEM tech support was no help at all (send it in? sure thing - NOT!). Device Manager shows the camera as functioning properly. Can I simply install an app to use it?

If so, can anyone recommend a good piece of freeware so I can use the camera's basic functions (taking pictures and video)?

Thanks Much

A:cant get my built in camera to work

If you can see an error for "imaging device" in Device Manager, try re-installing the driver from the laptop maker's website.

If there is no error in Device Manager, and your webcam is not listed there, that's usually a sign that the webcam itself is faulty so Windows cannot detect it - effectively it doesn't exist any more.

A easy remedy is to buy an external webcam (Logitech, Microsoft or Creative). don't buy a cheap brand with an obscure name as it will not last long.

I've a brand new Satellite P50-B-11V. After one day I detected a problem with the built camera and microphone. The camera works fine and the microphone too if the camera is not connected. Connecting the camera boost the microphone to maximum creating a terrible noise...So it's impossible to use camera and microphone together. Reducing the microphone boost to 0% does not solve the problem.

Is this an hardware problem? Does someone have this problem too? Drivers problem?

This is very annoying and disappointing, a day after the purchase this happens! This is not acceptable even more in a laptop which is not cheap.

A:Asus Built In Webcam Is SLOW

Hello and welcome, ryanm123 .

A webcam of only 1.3 megapixels is already going to be dragging, and ontop of that you probably have lots of processes running, along with services . This could be "normal" .

I have a 0.3 megapixel camera on my laptop, actually, on both, and they work great, even with processes and services, I think I even pulled it off with Photoshop CS3 running .

What software are you using to record your work in ? Try VirtualDub, it's literally the best video editing software, except Adobe After Effects, for sure .


Also, what software are you using to playback your work in? If it's the same software you use to record in, I'd seriously recommend trying to playback in another media player .

I had this problem in win7 once and got the rite driver from asus web site and fixed it, what can I do to turn my camera right side up in win 10????

I have an Asus U50A that I got at Best Buy the day before Thanksgiving. It works perfectly except the webcam will not work. Every application I try, including the Asus Lifeframe Utility states the camera is in use or has some unknown error. The only time it works is when using the Express Gate utility, which is a preboot utility allowing me to use skype. I have uninstalled lifeframe, asus virtual camera, and the camera driver. After uninstalling all of these and reinstalling, the problem persists. The light goes off when the comp is locked but the second you log in again the webcam light turns back on. I searched through the processes and nothing obviously controlling a webcam appeared to be active and no start up utilities appear to be involved. I figure it must be some Windows 7 utility but I have no idea what.

A:Asus Camera Problem

Hi -

What is the date on the webcam driver? Did you go to Asus site and see if an updated driver is available?

Regards. . .

Camera dont work!
I had Windows 7 Starter so I installed Ultimate.
Now the camera doesn't work and I downloaded the driver from their web. I think so... It was from here:
ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-

what am I suppose to do? Skype dont get it and noting works!
Its some built-in USB camera...

A:ASUS eee PC 1005 HA camera

Scrub the drivers / installation related to the device completely and attempt a reinstall of the drivers fresh again.

Barring that you may have to actually deal with ASUS they've been kind of hit and miss with proper support for 7... at least that's been my personal experience with them.

...I'm jaded though you may want to wait for another opinion.

I cannot seem to find a driver for my built-in webcam.
I tried searching the manufacturer's site but all they have is the webcam utility, not the real driver.

A:Unable to use built-in ASUS recovery partition

Have you repartitioned that drive in any way since you got it? If yes, that likely broke the link to the factory recovery partition. All your left with now is the basic refresh reset options that ask for your install media. It sounds like Windows can only see the small windows recovery partition. I don't know the answer though as to how you make use of it now.

Hello Pete and welcome to TSF,

First thing I would like you to do is perform a "Clean Boot" and try your headphones. What we are trying to accomplish with the "Clean Boot" is to either implicate or rule out a third-party process or service from causing the issue.

To perform a clean boot...
Close out any programs you are using and save any unsaved work.
Click the Windows button.
Type msconfig.
Select the Services tab.
Select Hide all Microsoft Services.
Select Disable All.
Select the Startup tab.
Select Disable All.
Click Apply then OK.
The system will prompt you to reboot... Select Yes.

Test your headphones and post back with the results.

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

A:Built-in microphone not working

Most likely the device is faulty.

The only way to rule out a software/driver glitch would be a fresh install of the OS. But that's not likely.

I have a toshiba satellite x205 with a built in mic. I had vista for 2 years with no problems with my mic. Upon reformatting my labtop and installing windows 7 as a clean install, my mic does not work. It's not muted. It's enabled. The volume status on the right side under recording devices does not move. My mic jack device is enabled, but says that it's "currently unavailable." I've done google searches trying to find a solution. It sounds like a bunch of guys have had this problem too, with a few minor exceptions. I need a solution. This is driving me crazy!

(SOLVED) Apparently all it was was updating my drivers. :P Still learning about this whole drivers deal

A:Built in webcam not working well

Yes, please try reinstalling the driver for it.

Uninstall the driver, restart your computer and Windows should automatically the detect the webcam and prompt you to install a driver. Pull out the Driver CD or point to the location of the driver and let Windows install everything for you.

Restart your computer again and give the webcam a whirl. You may also want to use different programs to test out the webcam.

Hello all,
I have a custom made 4 years old laptop with Win XP Pro OS. About 6 months ago, out of the blue, the integrated webcam stopped working.
I can't find anything under: control panel > scanners and cameras.
I checked: device manager > universal serial bus controller > all 'Intel USB universal host controller' properties indicate 'This device is working properly'.

Please help.

Thank you.

I got windows 7 for Christmas and I love it! It's everything I need, however the only problem is that my built in mic won't work. It worked fine in vista and I'm not sure if I need to set it up again.

I hope someone can help

A:In built Mic not working in Windows 7

Welcome to sevenforums !
what is your mic/audio device? Have you checked in the device manager? Use the windows update utility to see if it can detect a potential driver. In this case, it is very likely a sound driver (realtek, altec lansing/conexant, creative, etc)
Also, check your manufacturer's support page to find out the specific specifications of your computer, including the name of your sound card (onboard or not)

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.

I'm trying to use the built in webcam that I have and it keeps saying that the connection to the webcam was lost....

Anyone have any ideas about what I can do?



A:Built in webcam not working

Try re-installing the webcam driver from the laptop maker's website.
However, If it's an external webcam, download the driver from the webcam maker's website.

If that doesn't work, the webcam itself could be faulty.
