I've been having Asus K52JT for some time now and the webcam has always worked well. In the last week it started behaving strangely. I have to restart every time i want to have a video chat otherwise the other party doesn't see me. At that point also in skype it appears the computer doesn't have a webcam. I must also say that the webcam has actually never stopped working while in use in a video chat. Sometimes even the restart doesn't help, but the next restart usually sorts things out. If i go into the Device manager, the camera is there, but then it disappears from the list. :S
I tried to update the existing driver that i'd installed from a cd that came with the laptop. Asus wbsite offers me these 3 drivers:
Azurewave Camera Driver
D-MAX Camera Driver
Chicony Camera Driver
It doesn't matter which of them i try to install - i always get upon clicking the installation exe file the same window "VGA, 1.3, 2.0 WebCam - error".
The driver i previously uneinstalled is from "Sonix"
I also tried to update the driver trough the Device Manager, but the Windows report no available drivers to install.
Why is the camera disappearing?
and why the new drivers can't be installed?
Thank you so much for your help. I really need it
