Most 701 models came with a web cam built in.
You can install an external one easily.. just plug it in to the usb port.

Previous poster is wrong... why would you need a Cd drive ?
You could either download the drivers from the webcam maker's website, or simply copy the file from the CD to a SD card with another computer. If you have a home network setup, you could simply copy the files via network file sharing.

If you have the linux version of the EeePC 701, then make sure you buy a compatible webcam that has drivers in linux.

    Note:
    Linux has free webcam software available, you can also use skype for video phone and pidgin for video chat via MSN, AIM etc.

    Like I say, just make sure that you get a cam that is supported by linux's webcam drivers. Most USB webcams work fine.

    For good help with EeePC I would suggest you post questions in a forum where people who own them, hang out.

    Your average computer user has no clue about anything other than windows and conventional PCs
    Here are a few examples....

    Offcial support site:
    http://vip.asus.com/forum/default.aspx?S...

    Xandro Linux support (same version of linux that is on and Eeepc)

Try to use Skype. It's free, Did you try going to ASUS web site and download web cam software that was installed at the factory. It should be in the support section.

If so, you can get the manual from here: http://rapidshare.com/files/312178229/EeePC701SD_XP_0730.zip.html (Click on the "Free User" download option)

Hi i have a asus eee 4g notebook give me a webcam drivers. you can reply to my email id pratap_pankhania@yahoo.com


you need to stipulate your operating system is it linux or XP if linux then just do a restore as all the drivers are on a separate disk partition. If you have changed it to XP it is possible that the webcam drivers wont work anyway and you will have to contact the manufacturer

Some times BIOS disable webcam after updating it.

To enable it do the followings:

1. Restart your Eee PC.
2. Press F2 while booting (to enter BIOS sittings)
3. Go to "advanced" tab (by pressing right arrow)
4. Select "Onboard Device Configuration" (by pressing down arrow)
5. From there you can find if "Onboard Camera" is enabled or not.
6. If not, just press enter to pick "Enabled"

I hope that would help :-)
