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.

SOURCE: Hey my webcam is not

It sounds as if the drivers were uninstalled or became corrupted in some way.
The problem is that the drivers for this webcam are not downloaded separately but are native to Windows 7.

Try this solution and post back if it worked or not. If it doesn't work, I will attempt to help you further.

1. Turn on the webcam via the FN+F6 keys.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.

3. Type "devmgmt.msc into the dialog box and press enter to open Device Manager.

4. Find the extra "USB Composite Device" and right click on it.

5. Select "Update Driver" and click "Search automatically for updated driver software".

Windows should find the appropriate driver and install it. If it doesn't, then post back here and I will help you further.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: how does the msi u123 webcam work?

Hello friend,
First you should press "Fn+F6" to turn on the camera, and then use the MSI software "Easy Face Manager" to display the camera locally or you can use one of the IM software like msn, skype ... to share camera with your friends.
Best Regards,

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.

I installed everything i needed to but my computer won't find my camera,it can't detect it when i run MSI My Guard Life...Can someone help me?


Hi. First check if it is detected in device manager. If it's recognized in device manager maybe it is used by other program like Skype or Messenger, so try to exit all programs that may use webcam and than run MSI My Guard Life. If it is not detected in Device Manager do reinstall the drivers. First uninstall all you've installed, than unplug your webcam, install driver and software and then plug it again. . Hope it will help you. By the way if you don't know how to get to Device Manager look here .
Good luck! Feel free to ask more questions if you need.

Can not use my webcam


Go to CONTROL PANEL-SYSTEM, check if the Webcam device is detected, if detected and has Yellow Mark meaning it needs driver. Try download your driver, Google search for it or maybe you have your CD Driver you can use.

You have no video capture device


I had a same problem with my installed usb camera in my msi notebook. I thought it was caused by wrong driver or something like that and after downloading a number of drivers it still dont worked. I tried really everything and after pressing the P1 button ( one of the 4 buttons near the power button ) a USB camera viewer appeared on my screen. Now it is working without any troubles. Maybe it is the solution for you too.
