MSi U135 webcam not working.
« on: 19-May-10, 09:55:01 »

Hey all.
I bought a MSi U135 yesterday and I loaded it up installed what I needed to and got going. It was ony when I went on MSN I realised that my built in webcam wasnt working. So I clicked on the webcam Icon on the desk top and it loaded it up and then it said that my webcam is not connected :| yet it is a built in webcam.
Could any one please help as I need it and I dont know what to do. Also my microphone (again built in) is not working either.
All help is apperciated.
Thank you

You are sure you have a webcam, right?  In the manual, it shows the webcam as optional.  Is a webcam listed on the box, the white label with the serial #, that the netbook came in?

If you do have one, you have to turn it on first.  The manual, pg 2-9, tells you how to turn it on.  Press the Fn+F6 keys at the same time(or while holding down the Fn key, press the F6 key) to turn the webcam on and off.

Yeah I can see the webcam when I open the notebook. I have managed to sort the settings out. And I can get the webcam working when Im on MSN but i cant get it any other time. Is this normal with these notebooks?

You need to turn it on first and then start whatever software, MSNM, Skype, etc.
