    What type of laptop ?? Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device." The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed. If it doesn't If your webcam breaks, you can replace it instead of buying an external webcam that you have to carry around and remember to attach to your computer every time you want to use it. Disconnect your computer from all electrical outlets, close all programs, shut it down and remove the battery. Remove the screws from the bottom of your laptop until you are able to remove the outer casing and set it to the side. Remember where each individual screw belongs because not all tin screws are created equal. Try laying out the disassembled elements in a pattern to remember where everything goes. Remove the motherboard and keyboard if necessary. The goal is to be able to detach the top part of the laptop from the bottom section, and removing these elements may give you the necessary access to do that. Remove these elements by carefully taking out the screws and disconnecting the necessary delicate wires and cables with your fingers. Once again, remember where everything goes so your laptop will work correctly once you reassemble it. Disconnect the top part of your laptop from the bottom by disconnecting cables that connect to the screen from the motherboard. Separate the outside casing of the top part of your laptop by using the plastic putty knife to pry it open or by removing more screws. Locate the webcam and find where it attaches to the rest of the laptop. You may have to remove more parts in order to access the entire webcam assembly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o3y8U0wq...

If this is a web cam problem ?

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 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
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 http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 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). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer Hope this helps.

The most common "other program" that interferes with camera download process is your antivirus program. Right-click the AV icon on bottom right and select EXIT, then wait 30 seconds or so, and try running the camera application again. Let me know if that was it.

As far as the second question, you can change boot.ini by r-clicking "My Computer" and selecting "properties'. Then select the startup and recovery tab, and you will find a boot.ini editor. Also, here is an MS article that explains how to directly modify boot.ini with notepad/wordpad:

SOURCE: Installing Windows Server 2003 on a preinstalled Vista OS

The reason it is showing "no hard disk" is because you have a SATA hard drive, and there is no SATA support on the WS2003 software, so it doesn't even "see" the drive when trying to install.

What you can do is download SATA drivers for your hard drive to your machine. Once downloaded and/or extracted, restart the installation but choose F6 to load "SCSI or 3rd party drivers", then point to the downloaded drivers.

Your installation will then load the SATA drivers, thereby recognizing the hard drive and you'll be able to successfully install Windows.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

Hi there !

Your windows operating dvd installer is damage. It just the CD/DVDROM drive cannot read your DVD installer because it have too many scatches in your DVD. Just get new OS dvd installer and repair your windows 7 operating system or reinstall the operating system.

Asus virtual camera not working


have you tried pressing Fn+V keys? V key has a camera icon and when Fn key is pressed together with it, Asus lifeFrame utility opens. Only then your webcam will be activated. Enjoy!

I am a first time user of ASUS virtual camera. Can you provide me with instructions on how to turn it on and off?


Hi kathy_handra,

You can turn on and off the ASUS virtual camera by pressing the FN+V. The Virtual camera uses software called ASUS lifeframe. You can locate and launch it by looking under the ASUS utility group of Icons for Lifeframe. When you open the application it is usually set to video mode. So, to switch it to camera click on the camera icon which is located at the lower left circular menu. To locate the photos, you will find them in your document folder [Documents\ASUS\LifeFrame\Image].

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Asus Webcam constantly being used by mystery application


Built in webcams are not the easiest to troubleshoot as its difficult to reboot the webcam software.
With my plug-in I can just disconnect it for a couple of seconds to reboot it and clear the previous program.
Its not unusual for webcam software to remain hooked up to a program even after you exit it correctly.
What is unusual with yours the webcam comes on when you start your computer.
You might try to disable your webcam and then enable it again in the 'Imaging' folder of your Device Manager to see if the webcam light goes off and remains off when you enable it again.
You should be able to see where the webcam is being used by launching your Task Manager and hitting the Application tab.
Hope you can get your problem sorted and post some information on it for future reference

Cannot start Asus Lifeframe


Many people are reporting this same problem. If you have downloaded and installed Lifeframe 2, and updated the Bison camera drivers, and it still freezes, you're not alone.

Some people have just uninstalled Lifeframe and use the Windows Camera and Scanner program instead. It's worth a try.

And get some antivirus software!! Use Kaspersky if you don't want to buy McAfee or Norton. It's too dangerous out there to not have anything.
