Asus N61jv – webcam problem

Asked By 250 points N/A Posted on -

Hello,

I have an ASUS N61Jv, running Windows 7 Professional 64bit (legal, pre-installed).
The built in webcam is suddenly not functioning anymore. I can't recall changing anything, so I'm not sure why this is happening. When opening the cam in skype, windows live messenger, or lifeframe3, it keeps saying that the cam is in use by another application. I've reinstalled the driver, but to no avail. I have also reinstalled the software programs. Could anyone help me out with this? Thanks for any help!

Here's some information:

USB2.0 UVC 2M WebCam

USBVID_13D3&PID_5122&REV_0202&MI_00

I have absolutely same problem with my ASUS N61Jv, as described above.

It happened after a driver update for WebCam. WebCam was too slow for example in Skype video, I downloaded the official  webcam driver for this notebook. Now cannot use the webcam at all:  """" it keeps saying that the cam is in use by another application.

Can some one help?

Since this is the status of your webcam, I think there is already a problem with the device’s driver. But first make sure that your computer is not infected or something since the webcam is somewhat busy all the time. Update your antivirus then run a full system scan on your entire hard drive.

If the result turns out negative for any infection, try visiting your computer’s official website and see if there is an available driver there for your webcam. For branded computers, its website always has the recent drivers for their different computer models. If there is an available driver for your built-in webcam, download it in a folder.

Next, uninstall your webcam’s driver then restart your computer. After booting, open Windows Explorer then navigate to the folder where you save the installer. Double-click the file to start the installation. See now if this driver will work on your webcam. If not, try restoring your computer to a previous state where the webcam is still working.
