Hi...
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! :)

    I have an MSI G70 and had the same webcam problem...this is what worked for me. If you have Windows 8 or 8.1, first you open the camera app, it was say no camera detected or something to that effect. Then press and hold Fn + F6, then camera should come on then. Peace.

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.

Have msi u 100 plus and had built in webcam...?now,all of a sudden the cam is gone it says cant detect cam?


Yes. MSI U100 Plus had built in camera, and this device uses the native driver bundled in operating system. There are two possibilities can cause this, problem with camera itself or problem with your operating system...

Do u mean your web cam doesn't even get recognized or it doesn't work properly? Like what message you are getting when you try to access your web cam through your application.If it says no web cam detected,then make sure you have installed the proper drivers for your web cam model.

The built in webcam is not detected


it sounds like a faulty cam have you tried an external web cam this may trick the onboard one in to working.
if the on board device is detected in the device manager uninsall it and it should re-install itself the next time you boot up.
or try the msi web site look for support downloads then select your computer it should be a drop down list and down load the drivers for it.

Cannot turn on web cam


Are you able to remove the webcam and re-connect?

Once connected, the computer should detect the device is a webcam and the Creative pop up window should appear showing the settings toolbar.
