hi... i'm getting an upside down image, video image, in whatever software is out there for webcam (asus' own lifeframe, webcam xp, yahoo messenger. what's pointing in the direction of asus is the fact that all webcam apps exhibit the same symptom. i'm on an asus G50Vt. the webcam is built in. in vista it's normal, and all lis well in every webcam app. but i try it in windows 7, and every wecam app exhibits the same problem. i just flashed the bios, so i'm v 213 now. and all the drivers have been updated. but still get that annoying upside down image. any thoughts on the matter? on edit: i had to choose one of those cameras that i do NOT have, to get this thing posted. this is #2 of the things that i've got a pinch about that need to be brought up to the webmaster with.

i'm using a K40IN and it used to have the same problem.  Current OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.


here's what i did.
1. download the latest Chicony (or Suyin) driver for Windows 7.
2. extract contents to desktop.
3. click the ORB button. right-click on Computer and select Properties.
4. select Device Manager.
5. click on Imaging Devices to show the name of the webcam.
6. right-click on the name of the webcam and select Properties.
7. go to the Driver tab. click on Update Driver. a new window should pop-up.
8. click 'Browse my computer  for driver software'.  select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'.
9. on the next window, it'll give you the current driver.  click 'Have Disk'. click Browse. Browse to the desktop and select lastest driver that you've downloaded. it'll be then added to the list of drivers.  select the new driver and click Next. Just follow the prompts so that it'll install the new driver.

that should solve the problem.

Hi Donn,

Do you have problem shutting down your K40IN after you update this driver? I using a K40IN as well, but after I update the webcam driver, the notebook doesnt shut down properly.
Screen blank, cpu not running but power button still on.

I have to manully long press power button to shut it down.

Any idea how to solve this? Btw, Im using XP.

I FIGURED IT OUT!

You first have to uninstall your webcam driver.  Then start the TASK MGR and go to SERVICES tab, find MScamSVC and Stop the service.  Have the driver downloaded and extracted then reboot your computer.  Once rebooted go to the directory that you extracted the driver to and run the Setup.  Then WAIT until it says it's completed the process and prompts you to reboot.  It worked for me, it should work for you too.

No more upside down!!!
