Question about MSI Wind UmNotebook

2 Answers

Problem: MSI A6000-029u Webcam has stopped working. The Webcam on this computer worked for several months on both Skype and Web Companion and then it appears that the driver was updated in the past week or so and since then the red camera light does not come on and the camera comes up with a grey blank screen on Web Companion and a black blank screen on Skype. Looking at driver it says it is working fine. Here are the driver files involved: ArcSoftKsUfilter.sys usbvideo.sys I am trying to find updated versions of these drivers to see if this works. V.

Here is the home page for your system at the MSI site.
There is link for drivers and downloads. Start with these. I would roll back any updates first.

I have a sony vaio with built in web cam and windows 7 but i cant use the web cam . why is that?


Are you using the Sony Webcam companion? If not ou can download the application from Sony Vaio website. ( Sony Web Cam Companion ). If you are trying to use skype or any other video messaging software: Try to check if there are other video chat application running in the background of your computer. Open the system configuration utility (Windows key + R > msconfig ) then go to the Startup Tab. Uncheck all application that is related to video chat and leave the preferred video chat software active (checked). Restart the computer and viola! You can now use your webcam for video chat.

Webcamera doesn't work


1. Check if Imaging Devices is listed in device manager.
2. Uninstall and reinstall the webcam companion software.

Use the Arcsoft Webcam Companion Software to use the camera to capture videos and pics. Click on start and type Webcam Companion in the search bar and press the enter key.
This will open the webcam companion software, then click on the capture option to use the camera. If you want to use the camera with any messaging software such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger etc, it is required to close the Webcam Companion Software or any other web messenger software.

The camera can be used with a single application at one time.

Hey my webcam is not working. MY model is an MSI FX 600. For some reason, the webcam is no longer detected by Windows 7. I use the FN+F6 button to enable/disable the camera, and the picture on the bottom...


It sounds as if the drivers were uninstalled or became corrupted in some way.
The problem is that the drivers for this webcam are not downloaded separately but are native to Windows 7.

Try this solution and post back if it worked or not. If it doesn't work, I will attempt to help you further.

1. Turn on the webcam via the FN+F6 keys.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.

3. Type "devmgmt.msc into the dialog box and press enter to open Device Manager.

4. Find the extra "USB Composite Device" and right click on it.

5. Select "Update Driver" and click "Search automatically for updated driver software".

Windows should find the appropriate driver and install it. If it doesn't, then post back here and I will help you further.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Do not know how to turn the webcam on so I can use Skype


Hi,

In a VAIO there is no particular switch to turn ON the camera. Starting the computer automatically turns on the camera. To check if the camera is working properly, please open the ArcSoft Web Companion application that came with the computer. If the camera is working there, then the camera in the computer is perfect. You need to configure the Skype for video conferencing.

Below mentioned link has pictorial representation of the configuration of the Skype application with Camera in your VAIO.

My samsung netbook nc 10 webcam stopped working when I used it on skype.Could you help me work out why? Thank you so much. Ann I t worked for several months with no poblem


If you can double click the Namuga webcam in My computer and see yourself the webcam is working O.K.
Sign in to Skype - Go to Tools, Options - Video Settings make sure there are NO choices saying NO One. else the webcam will not work.
Now when you call up a contact the webcam should work.
If The webcam doesn't work in My Computer, you need to go to http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?Menu=SP00&prd_ia_cd=05013600&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdl_name=NP-NC10&prd_ia_sub_class_cd=P
(Cut and Paste into Browser Address bar)... The Win XP Namuga webcam is the second in the WinXP list - click on the ZIP icon on the right to download it.
Unzip and install it - then follow the directions above...
