Asus laptop webcam not working on Windows 7 Ultimate

Hi all, 

I have an Asus K52F laptop, which is running on Windows 7 Ultimate. This is a new computer and I have neither used nor opened its webcam until now. The software for the webcam on my computer was not available initially but I eventually found it online. I downloaded the USB2.0 UVC VGA webcam software from SONIX and a couple of other sites but they all failed to work for my webcam.
 
The websites of the computer manufacturer of the software and/or drivers may be different from what I currently have, but they used to work in my old laptop/webcam. 
 
Can you, guys, help me out? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think the problem you are discussing is that your webcam is not working right have you checked on Skype or any other video chat software? Is it working or not? I think the software you are using is not confine with the webcam you are using. One thing more which I should discuss here is that you should update your driver.  
 
1. Follow these instructions in order to work your webcam.
 
2. Go to the driver options and then update the driver using internet when you connected to the internet then click on update it will automatically update to the software which is required by the webcam. And then use software's whatever you want to use your webcam in any way offline online.

Hello,

Windows doesn't need drivers to detect Plug and Play hardware. And your problem seems to be the webcam hardware is no longer detected!
 
You might double check BIOS. Make sure there's no option that it's disabled there (Disabled in BIOS would prevent h/w detection)
 
But we can also double check a couple things
 
1. List any Problem Devices
  • Make sure 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.
  • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so.
2. Let's see what device/driver data is still loaded into Windows. See How To Report Your Computer's Device Manager Data
 
/* EDIT */
btw… Your webcam will almost certainly be a USB enumerated device (it's Hardware ID will begin USB ). I'd also venture to guess those Base System devices you saw were PCI devices?
