Sounds like you have a corrupt driver.

Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the
camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function
properly.


A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and
Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
2. Then click on the Video Settings.
3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to
see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

(http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html )

set it up as follows:

1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the
computer Audio Card.
4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call
setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on
top left next to the red X.
2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.”
And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or
friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and
video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window.
If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display:
You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you
like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers
and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to
first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning
Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may
appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.

After you get your camera installed properly, DO NOT unplug it from the USB port as it will
cause the drivers to be corrupt and render the camera unusable till reinstalled it properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I access my inbuilt camera on my Asus F5 ? It works automaticlly on skype, just not by itself, I can't find it on my computer.


You have to open the webcam software to activate or startthe webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. Thewebcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs thensearch for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam mightbe inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search thefolders for it. Some manufacturers have something like EntertainmentExperience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as thedvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch itthen click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCamYoucan always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and inthe search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on theleft and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type"Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit thesearch mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one thatsays ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sureyou remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. Youonly want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where yourwebcam software is.

Averatec 2500 Series Webcam Not Working


Try uninstalling the webcam restart your computer,reinstall the webcam with the single original driver WITHOUT any updates.If that does'nt fix it, the webcam may have went out or a sevice may have been turned off somehow.Sounds like the webcam went out or has become disconnected in some way or a corrupted driver.Also remember to, VISTA sucks

That's a registry fault and you have to go to your device manager. Ensure the device is set as active and run the system troubleshooter to ensure none of the dll's in the driver base have been corrupted.

You won't believe this! After trying all drivers on MSI Site, reinstall the proper driver and restart laptop.

Press the P1 button on the top right hand corner (near the power, wifi, internet, etc button) and Windows does the found new hardware sound.

Open the application and your done!

Another problem less :)
