My integrated webcam has been working properly in the past and has just recently started giving me problems.
Asus N61jq series
Only sometimes it connects through programs like MSN, Gmail, and LifeFrame. Most of the time I get a blank screen, or MSN freezes in webcam settings, and LifeFrame says that the camera is in use by another camera even if I just rebooted.
I have tried numerous different drivers including the default one that Windows Update installs, which flips my picture upside down and still has connection problems. Something I noticed is that sometimes, when connecting, the computer makes the USB disconnection sound and either successfully connects or doesnt...
I have tried installing the following drivers without success:
Windows Update driver (year 2006)
If someone can help me ASAP it would be MUCH appreciated!!
You think it could be a physical problem because of the connect/disconnect sounds? Wouldn't the connections be on the motherboard, or is the camera actually plugged into a cable right in the LCD ? I have a feeling that opening the LCD would void my warrenty, plus I don't even know how :S
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I checked to delete the driver as well.
