How to get my computer to acknowledge my web cam?
posted by FakePalindrome to technology (5 answers total)
I have an Asus X83v laptop with a built in web cam. I disabled the web cam in the Device Manager because it would come on at weird times. (I was concerned about Big Brother watching me). Now, when I want to use it, it's not even on the list of available devices to enable. It's as if it doesn't exist. I've tried downloading a driver from the Asus website, but can't seem to find one. Is it possible to get the computer to recognize the web cam without using the factory reset disc and losing all my data? I have an external hard drive I can back everything up on, but you always end up forgetting SOMETHING, and I'd really just like to avoid the drama if necessary.
