    Hello. I need some help. I recently updated to Windows 8.1 (kill me) from windows 8. Most of my drivers decided to stop working for some reason, like my wifi internet connection and others. I got most of them to work besides the webcam. I have an Asus g750jx gaming laptop.

    My hardware Ids are:

    I have no idea where to find the drivers or the manufacturer and so far everything I've tried hasn't worked. Please help.

    You camera is a generic USB Camera provided by Asus. When you look up the IDs, it comes back as "ASUSTEK USB CAMERA". The odd thing is that official download page for your laptop does not include the camera driver.

    This leads me to believe the driver has been bundled with another suite of drivers like the Chipset or another set of utilities.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd be going through their driver downloads and installing anythin

    If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably bundled as part of their Chipset untilies or something similar. Go through their office driver downloads and look for items you may not have installed.

    I tried downloading the chipset and all the different utilities for 8.1. Still nothing. Every time I try to update the drivers through Device Manager is says "Windows found the driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it."

    I had already tried downloading the driver from the logitech website itself already but it doesn't read.

    The model for my webcam is Logitech C270 HD Webcam
