    Webcam stopped working on MSI Wind U100 after upgrading to Windows 7

    I have recently installed Windows 7 into my MSI Wind U100 Notebook. It is not detecting the in-built webcam as Bluetooth device just after the installation. Now, the webcam is not working and I am not able to find its driver. How can I fix up this issue?

    Uninstall the Webcam with the help of Device Manager and then restart your system for re-installing it. Click the ‘Control Panel’ option from start menu pop up on the screen as a result of pressing the ‘Start’ button. Then, make a single click on ‘System and Security’ link available in the window. After that, click the ‘Device Manager’ option under ‘System’ label and give the password or confirmation as specified in the prompt message. Go through the list shown under imaging devices and locate the web camera entry. Right click on that entry and select ‘Delete’ option from the pop-up menu to uninstall the webcam. If this does not work, just press the Fn/F6 key on the keyboard.

    Hello,

    You have to update your driver software in case you need to use your camera through Windows Update.

    So to do this Click start and type Device manager in the Search box and hit enter.

    Now under imaging Devices locate the webcam and then right Click on it.

    Then Select Update Driver Software.

    And then select automatically Update device driver software.
