Missing cd for 10x digital zoom f=3.85mm megapixel webcam. Where can I dowload software and drivers?

Hi David,

To find this driver we'll need to know the make/model which is usually located on the device on a sticker or just printed on the plastic. Give whatever info you can from the webcam hardware: S/N, Part No, etc.

We also need to know what operating system you'll be running it on (since drivers are OS specific): Windows, Mac, Linux, as well as the version you're using: Windows 7 or Windows 8.1? 64bit or 32bit?

Once you tell us this we can locate a link for you. Typically the best place to start is with the brand and then visit their website and search for product support for your model.

MSI notebook u100 with OS xp built in webcam is not working

MOST issues with PCs and hardware is the SOFTWARE, with that said do the following:

1). Locate and download the latest updated driver on the manufacturer's web site.

2). De install the old driver from your PC's control panel.

3) Reinstall the latest driver.

If you need help locating the drivers or the website then message me back with the PC make and model along with the OS version (e.g. Windows 7, windows XP etc...)

  • 2. Your System information (When you are on your system information windows, press "Ctrl A" and then "Ctrl V" and then past it in the response box)

Read the following steps to find your system information if you don't know where it is located

  • To check your system information go to start and click run or hold town your windows key near the lower left of your keys and press "R" and type %windir%\system32\msinfo32.exe

I need to know how to use my webcam

With Windows Live, Yahoo Messenger, Skype, (Etc.) there should be a Webcam icon inside the application. Clicking this enables video chat with another person, but it won't work until you set up the Webcam in the Preferences.
There's hundreds of Instant Messenger applications on the web, so I can't go through each one for you, just look in the Preferences for an option related to your Webcam and select the appropriate one. If it's not in there, then you need to install the Software/Drivers for it. This depends on your webcam's manufacturer.
If you goto the manufacturer's website, you should find the Drivers link under the Support section. Locate your webcam via it's Model #, then download the Drivers. This will also install the software into your Start > Programs Menu, so if you want to just record yourself, just load the software and start recording. :)

Hi.. my Laptop's built in camera is not working. Dont really know what is the problem as I've never used it yet neither I can find any setup info to locate is it ON or OFF. I mean I'm an old timer so...

Hi salkh10,

The Motion Eye Camera on the Computer will be enabled automatically when the Computer starts. You will need to open the "ArcSoft WebCam Companion" Software to use the Camera.

You can locate the ArcSoft WebCam Companion Software by click "Start", "All Programs", "ArcSoft Webcam Companion".

This should help you to use the Camera.

If the Camera is not working in the Webcam Compnion Software, you may need to re-install the Drivers and Applications to fix it. Please try using the Application to check if that works.

If not, please post back with the version of the Operating System installed in the Computer.


Good Luck!

Thanks for using FixYa.
