    Accidental Webcam Driver Deletion

    Hello everyone.

    I got a new Logitech webcam for my Gaming PC but it had a built in mic. I wanted to remove it but didn't know how. I went into Devices and Printers and deleted the device from the audio section, thinking it'd only delete the audio-input part of the cam, but i proved myself wrong.

    If there's anybody out there that has had the same / a similar problem, and had success restoring the driver for the webcam, i'd please like to know how you did, as i have only just got it, thanks.

    Updating Webcam Drivers

    I have an ASUS GL551JW with a built-in webcam. I am having sync issues between the audio and video when I use Camtasia 8.6. The software manufacture told me to check my webcam drivers.

    I checked the drivers and they are from 2006. They are Microsoft drivers. I contacted ASUS and they couldn't provide me any information on updated drivers, but they were able to give me the following details about my webcam:

    I have been searching online but I'm not finding anything that is helpful for obtaining updated drivers. Maybe there aren't any updated drivers, but I am hoping that they've been updated since 2006.

    I have already downloaded the Intel chipset drivers from ASUS. I am not sure if that would include the webcam drivers. That's what ASUS told me to download.

    Device Manager lists the webcam as: USB2.0 UVC HD Webcam. I am using Windows 10.

    Does anyone have any suggestions, or can someone help me find some updated drivers for this webcam?

    P.S. I am planning on buying a "real" webcam in the next couple months, but until then, I need to try to get this one working. Everything works fine on this webcam, and the video is good, it's just out of sync with any recorded audio.
