    Webcam Driver is no more

    Hello everyone,

    I have an HP ENVY 15t-k000 CTO Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR), and I noticed some time ago that my webcam would come on when I wasn't using anything that would require the webcam. I suspected some botnet malware, but I haven't been able to find it. Now, I see that my webcam driver is gone all together. I can't update it, I can't roll it back, nor can I uninstall and reinstall it. I've checked HP's support site, detected my laptop and searched the drivers listed there for download. Unfortunately, there isn't one for webcams. I'm a little skeptical about getting a 3rd party driver, because that might make the problem worse; exposing me to even more threats. Does anyone know how I can go about resolving this issue? Or should I just go get an external webcam?(I need it for work).

  2. 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.
