    A recent Windows update may have interfered with the camera driver. Are you in Portugal? Go to the ASUS support site for your laptop model and download the chipset driver. Sometimes it contains a driver for the built-in camera

    Okay that's why I am always directed to a Portuguese website. So there is no camera driver on that site? Are there any yellow (!) in the device manager?

    No, the camera doesn't even appear in the device manager
    I updated chipset, bios, vga, atk and still nothing... damn...
