S10-2 webcam stopped working (using win7 starter)

Hi,

I bought S10-2 a month ago. Everthing was working fine. I used webcam while chatting in yahoo and  skype etc.  

But, a week ago, while chatting I found that webcam is not working. I checked everything but webcam ddt wake up.

Even in device manager, I could find it (like imaging device or Usb video device) Nothing to metion about webcam in there.

I tried to install Bison driver again but it say no device found.

Pressing Fn+esc says not installed webcam found. 

I dont knw whats gone wrong automatically.

 

Finally, I though to recover the system back to its factory setting expecting all wrongs will be right but result again the same. No Camera !!! situation is the same as mentioned above.

 

look like S10-2 never had a web cam :smileysad:

 

@@  I will mention that

          I didt ugraded the firmware for the Bison webcam.

          Win7 is on automatic update setting

          Once, I uninstalled veriface 3.6 bcz  I dont wanted to use it (but afterward camera was working for some day)

 

Now, I want help from you guys before i send it to the cumtomer center.

waiting your suggestions

See Kalvin Kliens post for easycapture link..

you might try the alternate drivers too, theres the bison/chicony ones and I forget the other name

Does device manager list your camera under imaging?

You can use any webcam software to get the cam working

yawcam (yet another web cam) is popular
