Restore my asus k53u web cam


Hi Kusu,
This comes straight out of the manual for the K53U:

"Hardware Problem - Built-in Camera
The built-in camera does not work correctly.
1. Check "Device Manager" to see if there are any problems.
2. Try reinstalling the webcam driver to solve the problem.
3. If the problem is not solved, update the BIOS to the latest version and try again.
4.If the problem still exist, contact your local service center and ask an engineer for assistance."

To get to "Device Manager":
  1. Right click My Computer
  2. Click Properties
  3. Click Device Manager
  4. Look for Imaging Devices
  5. Click the arrow
  6. Right click the webcam
  7. If it says Disabled, click Enable
  8. If it says Enabled, click Update Driver Software
  9. Click Search Automatically for updated driver software - this will search the internet and your computer for the latest driver information.
  10. If that doesn't work, go to: http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/K53U/#support
  11. Select your operating system, eg. Windows 7 32bit or 64bit, Windows 8 32bit or 64bit. Look through the list and see if the driver is available.
  12. If not, your next option is to go to: http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K53U&os=30
  13. Scroll to and select utilities.
  14. Look for version V3.1.1, Description: WebCam Utility.
  15. Click the Global ling with the green disc on the left hand side.
  16. Once downloaded, open and install.
Hopefully that solves the problem.

How i turn the lights of the zs211 usb pc cam?


I am assuming this is an external webcam; not one built into the screen of a laptop. You can disable the webcam until you need to use it. ( START MENU --> DEVICES AND PRINTERS ) You can also ( PRESS WINDOWS KEY + PAUSE/BREAK KEY, THEN SELECT DEVICE MANAGER) From there you should be able to enable/disable webcam with ease. Furthermore, I found a application for managing and controlling the device from the manufacturer. (Not sure how useful the program is, but it's worth checking out) Software Informer Download Remember: If the camera is not disabled any application that uses a webcam can access it. (e.g. Skype, Yahoo, AIM, MSN Messenger)

How do i use my built in webcam


First check if ur builtin webcam is enabled in the BIOS . This is easily checked by turning on your computer and following the screen to enter BIos setup . Its usually a simple press of F2 key before the operating system screen pops up .
Second while the operating system pops up , check in the device manager if the webcam is properly installed . This is easy for windows system where you just go into Control Panel , then System Properties , then Advanced Properties , down to device manager .
Third , simply do a test on Windows Update , Maybe there is a driver conflict or a new webcam driver present and you simply download the updates for your computer

If the webcam stopped working, or if the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam may be disabled. To enable the webcam, do the following actions.

1. Open the Device Manager .

2. Click on the plus (+ ) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.

Mionet unable to detect Lifecam 7000


A camera icon will show up at the bottom of your My Resources in MioNet. If the camera does not appear, then a manual scan is required. To scan for a new camera, go to the MioNet application, select File, then click "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" MioNet will report any changes in the computer configuration.

If the camera isn't detected and an icon is not available, then there may be two devices interfering with a scan:

1. Built-in webcam: MioNet does not support built-in webcams. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the onboard webcam can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

2. TV tuner card: MioNet also does not support TV tuner cards. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the TV tuner card can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

3. If the camera is being used by another program, MioNet will not be able to detect it. Please confirm no other program, including the camera view in Windows control panel, is not using the camera.
