This happens with my EEE PC also .... the web cam will only work when it wants to and only sometimes does restarting work, try clicking the "start" button then "turn orr computer" them "restart" . if that doesnt work then go to start,then "set program acsses and defaults" then click "change or review programs" on the side , then click on "ASUS USB2.0 UVC VGA WebCam" to see if it is on . in not then it should have a "add" ,"install"r "turn on" button
Most 701 models came with a web cam built in. You can install an external one easily.. just plug it in to the usb port.
Previous poster is wrong... why would you need a Cd drive ? You could either download the drivers from the webcam maker's website, or simply copy the file from the CD to a SD card with another computer. If you have a home network setup, you could simply copy the files via network file sharing.
If you have the linux version of the EeePC 701, then make sure you buy a compatible webcam that has drivers in linux.
1. Restart your Eee PC. 2. Press F2 while booting (to enter BIOS sittings) 3. Go to "advanced" tab (by pressing right arrow) 4. Select "Onboard Device Configuration" (by pressing down arrow) 5. From there you can find if "Onboard Camera" is enabled or not. 6. If not, just press enter to pick "Enabled"
