I had the same problem.. if you hold down Fn ( button on the bottom left coner ) and F6 and the one time it should detect the webcam.
And then fter that i couldn't find the webcam icon, well if you click on the icon named- Q-Face that should help you!
Thank you! :)

Hey everyone, i had the same problem until just now. I have a msi A4000 laptop with Windows 7, and here's how i randomly figured out how to launch the webcam:
Go and find the Webcam Companion program, or whatever webcam program you have on your computer (perhaps you can find in when you type "webcam" into search), and then open the program. Click the "connect button" (which was located in the upper righthand corner for me) and it should turn on.
If it still cannot detect your webcam, hold down the "Fn" key on the keyboard and the "F6" button.

Make Sure that you have the latest drivers installed for both the web cam and the usb port that it is plugged into. Also Try a different USB Plug. If none of these work, right click on my computer and select properties. Then on the hardware tab, select Device Manager. Under the Universal Serial Bust Host Controllers optoin uninstall as many of them as you can and then reboot. When the computer comes back up follow the Add New Hardware Wizards instruction, and it should fix the problem.

Called MSI Support, there is no fix. They had to RMA the whole unit to fix it. Did this 2x now within less than 3 months of owning the laptop. Same problem both times. the webcam doesn't work and the amber light doens't light up either.
