Built in web cam problem

I just got a new ASUS X50R laptop and I cannot get the webcam to work. It state that it is used by another program. I have switched off the antivirus program but it didn't help. I run a web cam diagnostic tool and I got the following output:
Video Capture
Selected source: USB2.0 1.3M WebCam
Driver not registered with NetMeeting (possible black border)
Capture graph initialized
High-resolution still capture supported
Video format set to 160*120 at 30 fps
Capture graph failed to render
The parameter is incorrect. [0x80070057]
Unable to position the video preview
No such interface supported [0x80004002]
Video preview enabled
Video capture started

Any idea what could be the issue?

Looks to me that all you need is a driver. Check the manufacturer's website. They'll have it for you. Don't worry, it won't cost anything.

Cannot run my built in webcam to my i need the usb version 2..

i assume your asus is a laptop with a built in webcam, theres always a driver disk when you bought your laptop you can find the webcam drivers there..just make sure you select the appropriate operating system..just in case you misplaced it go to asus website, look for support then search your model and download the necessary drivers..that should fix your problem...if your using windows 7 i dont think that would be an issue because it will automatically load standard drivers for your webcam..

Reinstalled windows with recovery built in computer now my webcam won't turn on.

Find the manufacture and the model of the web cam and download the drivers.
If it's a laptop with built in webcam visit laptop manufacture's website to find the drivers for your particular model.
That should fix the problem you're having.

I have a built in webcam on my laptop and it got reformatted and the program for my webcam is gone but it works on skype. how do i re install it?

If it works with skype, it should run under XP. There are lots of applications that will run it ... To answer your question directly, go the manufacturers web site (which I would have provided had you mentioned the make) and click on the Support tab - find your computer and find your specific driver for the web cam. They may even have a web cam specific application to run it.


Thanks for your interest in this web site.

Technika webcam software

This sounds like a driver problem. You probably have an install program for an earlier operating system. I suggest you go to the Technika web site and go to Support then Downloads. Identify your webcam and download the driver for your operating system. For example, the web cam may have worked just fine on a PC running Windows XP, but now you have a new Windows 7 pc. You must go get the Win7 driver for your USB Technika web cam
