This could be a problem with the driver, unistalling and reinstalling the driver could probably resolve the issue. But if this doesn't help, there's an existing issue with microsoft wherein the webcam stops working or simply doesn't work after a while. They released a hotfix on their website that you might want to try to download and patch your windows with. The problem description might not be the exact same error that you are getting but it's worth a try. I've tried this patch on a number of issues that isn't included on the description. This is also a bit safer than downloading other patches from unknown third-party websites since it is coming from microsoft themselves. Just click on the hyperlink below or copy and paste it on your address bar if it is not available.

Cheers!
I think the problem is the driver of your webcam. maybe there's already an update on it that you missed to intall. Try to uninstall it and reinstall and seek for an update.

I have asus k53s series and my built in webcam does not appear or shown on devices and printers..but when i use yahoo messanger and skype there's a image view on webcam but it is flip vertically u


Your webcam would be listed under Imaging Devices in the device manager. If it is showing you an image when you use skype or yahoo messenger then it is installed. Go into the webcam software to change the settings on how it is projecting the image.

You have to open the webcam software to activate or start the webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. The webcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs then search for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam might be inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search the folders for it. Some manufacturers have something like Entertainment Experience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as the dvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch it then click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCam

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your webcam software is.
