If you are using an old notebook or old devices, you may have problem with recent operating systems such as Windows 7 or Windows 8. Like you, I still use Asus F3J and all F3J users know, we have camera problem on new operating systems. Some of us cannot setup, others uses webcam but cannot work as expected, or uses another programs to correct reversed capture.
Finding Hardware IDs
First of all, if you want to find any driver but cannot find anything, try to search according to device’s Hardware ID numbers. To reach these important informations, go to Windows Device Manager, select any device you want to update or install driver. A dialogue box will be appeared:
Just right click the device and select properties, go to Details tab, select Hardware IDs choice. You will seea a few numbers, try to search them on Google.
For example, most of F3Jc users’ camera Hardware ID is like that: USB\VID_05E1&PID_0501&REV_0005
