Work my web cam on my asus monitor

I got the asus vk266h with built in webcam, the software they sent with it Life frame does not open with vista (no suprise there). I have run it with the compatability mode in properties but no luck. I tried downloading drivers but have no idea what im doing. I just wanna get a picture up on the screen from the cam, how do I do it? when i click the lifeframe 3 icon it keeps thinking but never opens it however it worked fine when i first got the laptop yesterday (mine is an asus with vista also). I think my step brother did a windows update on my computer and ever since the lifeframe won't open. I'm not sure what to do!

    I have the same problem. I've tried to install LIfeFrame 2 from their website, but with no result. Since I have the original CD I thought it would work.
    I have XP by the way.
    So please, any help will do fine :(

I too got the vk26 monitor with the built in webcam. So I too had the problem with the software. I tried drivers, redownloading and uninstalling..etc,etc. But packaged with the monitor is a series of cables,one of which you HAVE to plug the into the back of the monitor and into your computer. I thought that the dvi cable would take care of everything,ehh,I thought wrong. Asus didn't mention that in the very small worded monitor guide. So in short,once you install the software,you must you the usb cable that came with the monitor,plug that in,and you're good to go. =)

How can i tell if my built in camera is working, R704A, windows 7


If the laptop still has all the original software installed, check in All Programs for ASUS folders and utilities. Find and open Life Frame. If you can't find it try Skype. It will automatically find the cam and let you test it. Another way is to do a search on-line for 'vidcap.exe'. This is a freeware application that allows you to capture video clips but will also display the output from the cam.

Can't activate webcam in livejasmin


Hello,

Built in web cam? Does the web cam work with the software e.g. - Microsoft life cam? If does not work at all could be out, get an external USB web cam. Could be a driver, could be the site or site settings.

I hope this helps.

How can i tell if my web cam is on or off


Open your webcam software. I don't know what software or the hardware, you use to operate your webcam. You can open Task Manager and look for the webcam there. I can't find a user manual. If you have one look for keyboard and Fn functions.

I have no built-in web cam. The person that fixed my laptop put in Windows Vista and I can't find my web cam


the driver for your USB webcam is missing after installing Vista.
Right click "Computer", open Properties, open Device Manager on the left, find if there is an alert saying unknown device or sth, if there is the unknown, update your webcam driver.

GETTING MY WEB CAM WORKING


First, check to make sure that the webcam is enabled in the Bios. Once this verified (and if you do not have the driver installed), go to forum.eeeuser.com and search for the webcam driver for your model.

Is it possible to fix my laptop webcam?


I don't know what the deal is with gateway's performance monitor, but the low frame rate is normal for web cams (and digital cameras in general) in low light situations. I would recommend just getting a cheapy desk lamp and forget about the night mode if possible.

Web cam problem


Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks
