    I have an Asus A3H laptop that came with a built in webcam. When I try to use the cam with MSN Messenger its states that I currently do not have one. I think its a missing driver as I have several yellow warnings from my device manager... I tried serching the ASUS website, but i really dont know what im looking for. Please help.

    Glad you have had some success in solving these challenges....


    Now I recommend trying the following...
    Open device manager, right click on one of the yellow items> select properties>remove. immediately reboot the computer and let Windows find and reinstall the item. Repeat with each of the items.
    Let us know how it goes.
