SOURCE: Hi i have msi u230

try to make a bios update but it was not advisable since it causes more problems. another one is to toggle the "Legacy USB Support" in bios if it was enabled try to disable it and vice versa. then boot your OS and check if the cam is working.

SOURCE: MSI CR620 doesnt work camera

click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp

click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution

note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

this is a free driver solutions

this will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you

want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

open skype go to tools options scroll to audio settings or video settings on the right you will see webcam setting you can change the settings from there click apply after changing any settings

you can see the webcam there you can even take a snapsot also make sure your settings are correct for a video call

hope this helps

Msi webcam was working and now is saying cannot detect when trying to use it

When activating the camera with fn+F6, have you tried looking in the "Device Manager" to see if Windows recognises it ? It could be a driver problem, but just as well a broken cable in the screen hinge.

I have a msi cr700 with a built in web camra, it used to work fine but has now stopped and my computer cant locate it..

uninstall all the software and the drivers, then download the latest from your manufacturers website. and reinstall.
if your webcam is not built into your machine, do not plug it in until after installation.

My webcam for my msi is not working properly, it used to work but now it dooesnt even if i press the Fn then F6 it doesnt change it, i also tried using my webcam companion to connect it, it still doesnt...

The best way to restore it is to uninstall the driver and restall again. The driver files maybe corrupted and needs to be reinstall the missing driver. Also, check the device manager to check for driver conflict. It might help you solve your problem.

Hi, my webcam - Arcsoft on my msi cr700 laptop used to work and I have tried to fix it but all it says is that it has not been found or is not working properly, please can you advise me etc. Thankyou,...


Did you try using the "Simple Camera Application" for the computer model. Try installing the Camera application from the below given link and check if it works:

If this works, then there is no issue with the Camera in the computer.

My MSI Laptop Webcam doesnt work on my MSN, what should i do???? PLease Help me!!!

If the webcam works normally otherwise then the problem is compatibility between your webcam and MSN messenger. I'd contact MSN and ask them if/whem they support the webcam or get a cheap generic USB cam that will work.
