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.

  1. Well you could ask the customer service on there and they'll give you some input.
  2. LOL @ MSI there hopeless

    get the hardware id/string and look on the web for that (VID_XXXX&PID_XXXX)
  3. I had the same problem. Look on the F6 key, there is a picture of a webcam. Fn+F6 turns it back on.
