MSI GX60 Built-in Webcam not Detected, no drivers available!

My new MSI GX60 is supposed to have a 720p webcam built in, but Skype, Windows Movie Maker and Cyberlink Youcam 5 all say there is no webcam. I am really bummed out that the webcam isn't detected, I tried installing windows 7 too and seeing if it would work there, but no luck. Please help! The MSI website also has no drivers available saying they are integrated.

  3. I had the same problem. Look on the F6 key, there is a picture of a webcam. Fn+F6 turns it back on.
