Preferred Solution: MSI GS70 Gaming laptop Webcam not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: MSI GS70 Gaming laptop Webcam not working

Ok I have an MSI GT70, did you try activating it via the toolbar at the top of the screen that comes on MSI laptops. It looks like a tiny paperclip at the top of the screen in the center, there should be once you open that toolbar up an option to activate the webcam.

---------My laptop model is Inspiron 17R 5720 and Im having the exact same problem after the Microsoft Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607: August 31, 2016 - KB3176938, done Sep 4th. I was also already running Win10 and it didnt mess with Webcam Central - till yesterday when I gave the reboot necessary to install the update files.Pan/Zoom/Position Arrows show as available to be used but if you try to use then, nothing happens and back to full zoom. Only thing it allows me to do is to change to Face Tracking.I called Dell Suport Center and for about 2 hours I ran diagnostics and tried possible solutions with the tech assistant but he wasnt very helpfull at all. All diagnostics came back with positive/OK/passed results and they offered me a paid support to fix the problem. Not exactly a good solution, is it?It was clear though MS updates messed up with the webcam driver - I checked myself at Devices/Imaging there was an update for the driver done exactly when MS updates were done. Unfortunatelly, the rollback option wasnt available. For that matter, I decided to uninstall the whole Windows KB3176938 and CAPICOM (what ever that is) updates done using Control Panel/Updates but no-go. Next step was to google for that problem which leaded me to other Dell Forum threads pointing to reinstall Webcam Central which also didnt work at all then I bumped into your threa... Read more

I have not used it in quite a while. Now when I try and use it, the webcam does not show up in Device Manager. If I bring up Windows Live Messenger > Tools > Audio Video setup, it states that no webcam is installed.

I have tried reinstalling the latest webcam driver, resetting bios to the default values, using System Restore to restore the original driver, and I have reinstalled the latest bios. None of these actions had any affect.

Is there anything that would cause it to be disabled? Why doesn't my laptop find the webcam/webcam driver?

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N411z with Windows 7 installed and I haven't been able to get any webcam to work for some time now. First my internal webcam stopped working and no hardware is detected for it. I fixed it once by uninstalling the USB hardware, but it broke yet again.

Due to not being able to fix that webcam, and wanting to skype with friends, I have bought external webcams. The first one stopped working, but I attributed that to the fact that it was $5 on Amazon. So recently I bought the Logitech C250 online and have tried that one out. It installs drivers, but the webcam drivers don't work correctly. It works fine as a microphone but for some reason the imaging drivers don't download correctly.

Can anyone help me with this? I'd love to be able to skype and hangout with my friends again! Thanks!

Answer:HP laptop Builtin webcam not working in Win 7

I assume that you just loaded Windows 7 on an existing computer (laptop?). You will need to go to Hp's site and download drivers for your hardware since all of your old drivers are not windows 7 compatible. Look for 'Support', 'downloads', 'drivers' and look for windows 7 drivers for your hardware.

I recently purchased an Easynote TJ64 laptop from PC world - the model had been "refurbished" giving it better specs. However I cannot get the webcam to work- the screen just remains black when i try to take pictures, or a video. I thought it could be something to do with the upgrade to Windows 7 that the refurbished model contains? Does it need a different driver or something? All my attempts at googling them have failed. I am clueless really! Any help would be much appreciated.

My built in webcam just stopped working all of a sudden. I can't get it to work with Cyberlink YouCam or any other website that uses the webcam. I have a Sony Vaio model number VGN-CR120E. When I go to Device Manager and look under imaging devices, there's Sony Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC6. There is no little exclamation mark next to it. It is enabled, and I already right clicked on it and clicked the update driver software. It told me that it does not need to be updated. I am stumped. The green light doesn't turn on, either.

What should I do?

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my post.
Earlier this year I purchased a Gateway NE17B series laptop. I am having issues with the webcam. Running Windows 8.1, when I open the Camera app, it displays the error message: Something's wrong with your camera or Please connect your camera. After doing some research, I read to disable the driver, restart, then enable. I did that and it actually starting working!
Not wanting to use the camera app with Windows 8.1, I downloaded another free program. Now, the webcam is back to not working again. I uninstalled the software I downloaded and repeated the disable/restart/enable steps and it's still not working.
It seems anytime I try to use the webcam inside ANY program, such as Skype, the webcam will come on for a second, I'll see myself, then it goes away. This has happened in a few different programs when I tried using the webcam.

In the device manager, under Imaging, it says HD Webcam. So, I'm not real sure what manufacturer of the software is.

Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get this webcam working again?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hey guys,

I just bought an MSi GS70 about a week ago, and I noticed that while playing any graphically intensive game, like Battlefield 3, the CPU gets very hot.

I showed a max temperature of 95 degrees Celsius while playing BF3. Is this temperature cause for concern? I'm thinking about sending it back for a replacement because I have read that some of these computers are shipped with a bad thermal pasting job, which could be causing the problems to some extent.

So basically what I want to know is, do you think I should send it back for a replacement, or just get a cooling pad for use 90% of the time that I am gaming and hope that it doesn't end up ruining something on the inside?

I knew it would run hot, but I wasn't expecting it to be this hot.

Thank you
 

Answer:MSi GS70 CPU Overheating

After a little research your temps seem to be what is considered normal for that laptop, and within intel specs.

I would not worry unless you have overheating/ shut down issues.

Hi

I recently got my laptop screen replaced. Although the integrated webcam is connected as the light comes on and there is an image, it is not clear.

I have attached an image.

As soon as I realised the webcam was not working I took it back to the repair shop and they checked the connections and said everything is fine.

The tech support of the company that sold me the screen said to reinstall the screen as maybe the wires are not connected properly. However, the repair shop guy said everything is connected and the webcam itself is connected. He said they can reinstall the screen but if there is nothing wrong on their part (i.e. they have connected it properly) I will have to pay.

The repair shop guy said he thinks that the webcam captor got damaged when I broke the screen.

Do you have any advice? I do not want to get it reinstalled only to find everything is connected and have to pay again.

Any help would be much appreciated. I am not at all a technical person so please bear with me!!!

Thank you.

Dearest techies,
I've recently been trying to hook up my old monitor from my Dell computer to my brand new MSI Gs70. I got a crappy VGA to Mini Display port adapter from ebay, and plugged in the monitor. The screen stayed blank, even though I did [windows] P and set the projector mode of my laptop to extend, and went through my display options to tell the computer where my monitor was (extend to the right, etc). I even went into the NVIDIA settings (GeForce GTX 765M) and tried to set the monitor up there. Both preference panes showed the name of the dell monitor, so they definitely recognized it. I tested the mini-display port adapter with my mac and it works fine. The only thing I can think of that I wasn't sure how to mess with was that my computer also has an integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics 4600). Perhaps the wrong graphics card is using the external monitor? I'm kind of at a loss for what to do next. It seems like I must be missing just a button somewhere, but I can't seem to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to view my issue.  I purchased this laptop after thoroughly reading the many reviews it had recieved, claiming that it was capable of playing most modern games with good fps and minimal lag. To my suprise, this seems to not be the case for the model I recieved and I am very frustrated because of this. I have been unable to play games such as Borderlans 2, Nosgoth or even the mod Black Mesa: Source without lag spikes. In multipkayer games such as nosgoth there is constant heavy lag even on low settings, and it is making me very upset. I spent almost 1000 dollars to buy this laptop for gaming and now it is failing me, and it may force me to return in for a full refund if possible.  I am hear to ask you all if this is normal for this laptop model. The specs seemed amazing so I am baffled at the current performance of this laptop. I start college tomorrow and will not be able to go happily now knowing that the laptop I have recieved is severely less than what I expected it to be.

The problem simply is, the webcam stopped working for some reason, an error messeage says "Webcam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer".

I noticed that whenever I put the computer in sleep mode I was getting on the icon tray a notification says "USB device unrecognized"... I wasnt aware what it was - thought it becasue of the USB mouse being plugged... but I think its related to the camera...

software is installed but camera is not working and cant enable it .. I did download the latest driver from toshiba site , but still not working ...


Currently my laptop runs Vista HP SP2 32-bit, Windows defender enabled, Windows Firewall Enabled, Windows UAC enabled, Kaspersky Ani-Virus 2009 Enabled. I only use Windows Live Messenger (which up to date I think , version : 14.0.8089.726) which i used camera with, I quite using face recognition long time ago and rarely use the webcam ... I didnt install or update any drivers and used to have the laptop running perfectly..

So what happened now ?!

Answer:Satellite A300-1G5: webcam stopped working - Webcam driver open fail

Hi

I have had a similar error message and could solve this by disabling the webcam software from startup.
In msconfig -> Start Up tab I have unchecked the Chicony webcam software.
This prevents it from automatic loading.
I don?t use MSN but Skype and the Chicony webcam software is always disabled (not executed) if Skype is running.

Maybe you should try this too.

Furthermore you could try this:
Go to device manager, mark the webcam (imaging devices ? USB video device) and deleted it from the device list.
Then reboot the notebook and wait until the webcam has been recognized again.

Then test it.

After trying to load the webcam i get the message: "Webcam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer"

I have tried updating the Driver software for the camera, and updated the BIOS.

This message still keeps coming up. Is it worth uninstalling the camera completely then attemtping to reinstall it?


Sorry if some of this doesnt make much sense, im not entirely "computer savvy"


I hope somebody can help,

> Is it worth uninstalling the camera completely then attemtping to reinstall it?
Of course!

You should firstly go to device manager and should uninstall the driver.
You should also remove the software from control panel -> Software

After that you should clean the OS and registry using CCleaner. It?s free tool? google?
Then reboot the notebook several times and install the webcam software again.

I've owned this laptop for quite a while and had been using Webcam Central to control the Integrated Webcam on my Alienware M17x R4.   I never had any issues using Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or even Windows 10 until my system updated on 8/20/2016 with a scheduled Windows 10 update.
After the windows 10 update my system restarted and the next time I went to use my webcam I noticed that I couldn't control the pan / zoom / or tilt or alter any of the settings in webcam central.  If I attempt to change anything it automatically changes back instantly.  For example of I move the slider to zoom, or attempt to change the pan, it auto goes back to where it was and will not allow me to change the settings.
I also notice that my mouse pointer flickers over the webcam central GUI, meaning, there seems to be some issue with the GUI after the windows 10 update, I assume is also whats causing the settings not to be changed.
I have tried uninstalling both the drivers and software and reinstalling to no avail, same problem is present after reinstallation of both drivers and the webcam central software.
Wondering if anyone else has run into this and whether there was some type of resolution.
I was able to get the pan / zoom / tilt working with 3rd party webcam software, however I would prefer to go back to using webcam central.

Apparently FN+F9 will enable or disable the webcam!
It seems that I had done this inadvertently at some point and turned it off, and while messing around for a solution the other day, II tried the combo it turned back on the webcam!
Quite a powerful key combination I have to say if manually enabling the web cam and reinstalling the web cam driver don't do anything.

My computer is fairly new...that's why this issue is driving me crazy! I use skype and messenger a lot because I'm currently stationed in Europe. When I first arrived everything worked great. Then, the voice went out on Skype so we started using Yahoo messenger..then the camera went out on messager...I went and bought both an external webcam and microphone and neither would work at the same time but every once in awhile one would work. Currently I can get voice on skype and that's it. Skype doesn't even give me the option of a webcam anymore and when i try with messenger it says no connection found. I'm not a computer smart person and I've tried and tried to get the camera working. I have no idea what to do about it now..I'm almost to the point of just buying another computer. I would love to be able webcam and talk at the same time!! Please help!!

Answer:Laptop built-in webcam showing as "USB 2.0 camera" and not working anymore

1. What's the make and exact model of your computer?
2. What version of Windows is running on the computer?
3. Have you gone to the computer provider's support site and looked for a hardware specific web cam driver?
4. The current name "USB 2.0 cam" sounds like it might be using the Windows generic driver. Open Device Manager, right click the cam->Properties then Driver tab. Who is the Driver Provider? (if it says Microsoft, that's the generic cam driver)

Hello everyone! I am here in desperate need of help... I recently bought this used custom gaming computer and have no idea why I am getting all these random BSOD. I have tried researching myself and the BSODs often occured when I was on Youtube, webcamming or talking on programs like Skype and GoogleTalk, or using a drawing program called Paint Tool Sai. One time during gaming it did bug out but it was not quite a BSOD so I'm not sure what that was either.

Any help would be appreciated and I have attached the files needed and I have answered the spec questions below as best as I can.

? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? Windows 7
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Windows 7 ( I think )
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? full retail version
? Age of system (hardware) I am not sure
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? No I have not
? CPU - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500 CPU @ 3.30GHz (4CPUs), ~3.3GHz
? Video Card - 2x AMD HD 7790's in crossfire
? MotherBoard - ASUS p8p67 Pro
? Power Supply - brand & wattage - 1000 Watt Power Supply
? System Manufacturer
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom)
Laptop or Desktop? Desktop

Answer:Random BSOD win7 webcam, youtube, gaming

It sounds like it may be issue with Flash Player, but that usually causes freezing and Flash Player stopping, not BSOD's.
What specific model is the power supply, ie the Manufacturer?
What are the temps and voltages in the BIOS?

When trying to use my Lenovo Y Gaming Headset with my Laptop which is a Lenovo G50-30 it makes a buzzing noise. Sometimes I adjust the position of the headphone cord in the dock and that stops the buzzing on my end. When talking to people through Skype or Teamspeak. They are able to hear a buzzing noise. Is there a solution to stop this? Thanks.

Answer:Lenovo Y Gaming Headset not working wth Lenovo G50-30 Laptop

If you have any USB devices plugged in near the jack, try moving them to USB port further away.     Also check to be sure you have a properly grounded outlet, as it could be what is referred to as a ground loop..    You can also get what is called a ground loop isolator such as the one below to plug between your headphone and the jack, and that might help too. Mpow Ground Loop Noise Isolatorhttp://www.amazon.com/Mpow-Ground-Isolator-System-Stereo/dp/B019393MV2/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=U... Good Luck

Hi there I am having such a hard time with this laptop concerning gaming which is one of the main purposes I bought it for, especially considering the fact it was specifically advertised as a gaming laptop.  The 4K resolution has some serious scaling problems, reducing multiple programs to tiny boxes and things like that. Also apparently the rest of the hardware like the Nvidia Geforce GTX 860M graphics card and the CPU cant even keep up with this resolution which is why while running games at 4K, everything is incredibly slow and the FPS drops significantly. Its just silly. At most all my games I have to run at 1080p for the hardware to kick in and even then sometimes I can't even play on high settings. Like for instance I recently bought Assassins Creed Black Flag, which supports 4K reoslution and of course when I started playing, everything was so slow and laggy even on the lowest possible graphics settings. Once I changed the resolution to 1080p it shrank it down to a tiny size and was STILL super laggy and had a low FPS on high settings. Although changing the graphics settings down to the minumum helped with FPS issues to a 'playable' level, the screen was miniscule and unplayable. I am getting soooo many issues with this 4K resolution thing and im very surprised Lenovo did not mention this and further more label this Laptop as a "Gaming Laptop", as it is seriously turning out not to be and after looking at many reviews into this, a lot...

Answer:Is the Lenovo Y50 Gaming Laptop even a "Gaming Laptop"???

Simply put not really. No mid range laptop is going to be able to run games at 4k which honestly should be pretty obvious. Most of the problems you're having have been covered in various reviews :/

Hi, I have an EagleTec KG010 mechanical keyboard and sometimes when I would be running or driving a car in a game, I would try to turn right by pressing the "D" key and it wouldn't turn. I would then keep pressing it and it would finally turn. This only happens sometimes, and I have just dealt with it for a while, but recently, I got PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and have been playing with some friends and this glitch where the d button doesn't work has caused me to get killed more than once. This has only occurred in games (while typing this, the D button works fine). Is this because of a problem with the keyboard or is it something with the computer? I thought it might be a problem with the computer since the key works fine when not in a game.

Hi, first time Lenovo buyer and have a Y510-59370001    (http://shop.lenovo.com/ca/en/laptops/ideapad/y-series/y510p/) Was wondering how to get this gaming ready as my other laptops quickly deteriorated, almost certainly from a combination of poor quality and overheating. Please keep in mind I know very little about computer terms and how to...do certain tasks that might seem simple to everyone else. Although I am trying to learn. So without further ado... 1) Choosing laptop cooler: http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-NotePal-Configurable-R9-NBC-8PCK-GP/dp/B003ZMF27G/ref=pd_ybh_1  ... -     this one looks very promising, but should I choose 17 inch with 2 fans, or 19 inch with 3 fans? anyone know warranty for this since I"m buying off amazon? it's actually more expensive from the retailer (checked the site) I only worry about warranty since apparently 5% of these are defective after couple weeks. Also..is this tilted enough to provide enough elevation? Or should I purchase this (http://www.cmstore-usa.com/notepal-u-stand-notebook-cooler/) instead. obviously I don't need to tilt it up that much, but you get the idea. 2) Is anyone else extremely frustrated with windows 8? I'm very much considering switching back to windows 7. Any good reasons not to? 3) Ultrabay, what is it, where is it, does it have extra space/slots? What should I put in there? What's in it already? I'm thinking of upgrading hard drive to S... Read more

Answer:Laptop cooler recommendations and other questions to get this laptop gaming ready

1/ Any cooler will be just fine.For the Y510p I would suggest the Notepal X2 or X3 and line up the fans just below the intake area on the bottom. 3/ In the ultrabay you can place a extra GPU GT750M. Or a extra hard drive or a cooling fan.You can replace your HDD with a SSD. You can use HDD cloning to clone the HDD to your SSD.4/ HWMonitor, HWinfo646/ Laptop bag: get a laptop bag that is able to carry a laptop of 15 inch or bigger. Just get a random one. Bon voyage !

Answer:Webcam not working HP

You might have to go into the device manager in the system tab; and manually add the device and let windows try and find and install the driver(s) for it that way. Give that a shot and see if that does anything to resolve the issue. If not post back and we can go from there.

lenovo g505s.i installed the lenovo easy camera yet this driver never runs,and web cam is unusable.

Answer:webcam not working?

hi gokuvegita,
 
When you get the "Webcam is unusable" error, can you try to:
-  Open Device Manager > imaging devices and see if. have built-in camera detected. If it's there uninstall it and reboot to refresh the driver. 
 
Alternatively, try to:
1. Run Windows update to get the latest patch and bug fixes to your OS
2. Uninstall the Camera Driver from the Control Panel and re-install the driver below:
 
Camera Driver (AVC, Liteon, Bison, Chicony) for 64-bit WindowsWindows 8 64Bit
cam115w8.exe26.6MB
 
Camera Driver (AVC, Bison, Chicony, Liteon)Windows 7 32/64Bit
cam118w7.exe26.6MB
 
3. If the webcam is still not detected, apply this USB binary fix and reboot:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2529073
 
If problem persist, the camera is probably not getting detected properly or is already defective. Try to perform a factory reset using the OneKey Recovery button to isolate if the issue is OS level.

I have windows Vista and the Veo webcam I just purchased from ebay won't work. When I tried to install the driver using the cd is said that I couldn't use it with vista. Well I figured out how to bypass that with the help of a forum like this one. I went in and made it think I had XP. So everything downloaded. So I restarted my computer and then plugged the USB cable in but it's not working. When I plugged the USB in is said Windows is installing USB imaging device. But nothing is happening and Skype says it cannot access the webcam. Please help...so frustrating!!

I just uninstalled all programs and drivers associated with the veo webcam...maybe a fresh start will help?

need to get help from some1 who could help me get my webcam working plz i have an inspiron 1521 its built in but wont be recognized when i try to video chat

Answer:cant get my webcam working

Hi, to better help, I would ask for more information. Things like where can't you get the webcam to work, has it ever worked, if it is only certain programs that can;t use it, which are they, etc.

As for the problem. Can you go to Dell Inspiron 1521 driver down load page and download the driver for the webcam. (It will be under Inpute Device Drivers).

Then go to your Device Manager (if you don't know where it is I can help you with that) and check for any yellow marks there. If there are any, please post them here. Also in the Device Manager, please uninstall the webcam driver.

Then install the webcam driver from the file you just download. See if that helps.

If you aren't sure how to do something, please post and I will give you the needed info.

Also please let us know how the problem is after this.

Hey guys I have a HP laptop (hp G60-418CA) and it has a built in webcam, the laptop is almost 2 years and everything has been fine until now. My webcam randomly stopped working. Whenever I try and open my Cyberlink Youcam, I get an error message that says "Warning no webcam detected, Try plugging a webcam in your computer, if you are using an integrated webcam make sure it is turned on" I either get that error message or this on that comes up most of the time " Youcam cannot connect to your webcam ( USB Video device.) Try selecting another capture device within settings or close any applications that may be using this webcam, then restart your Youcam.


When I go into device manager, Imaging Devices only shows up in device manager like half the times i open it or less.

-I updated the drivers.
-uninstalled youcam
-re installed it
-updated my computer and nothing.


anyone know whats up?

Answer:hp webcam not working

Did you re/install the chipset drivers? That can help the system reconnect with it.

If not, I think it's a loose wire.

Question: Webcam not working

Hi all,

I've just bought a new Advent 9515 laptop which has an integrated webcam. But the webcam doesn't seem to be working? do i need to do something ?

Thanks
 

Answer:Webcam not working

ive never heard of a computer coming with a webcam. maybe the drivers need installed? does it say what brand of webcam u have? advent isnt a brand im familiar with. what version of windows do u have? maybe its not compatible with your version of windows. im only guessing as to what the problem might be.

So, I bought a brand new windows 8 Lenovo Z70 laptop, and the webcam is not working. In fact, it doesn't even show up in the device manager, even as an unknown device. It is possible that I accidentally deleted the software for it when I was getting rid of all the useless junk that comes preloaded and didn't notice it at the time (does anyone know what the name of that software is?), but even then it should still show up as unknown device. So far, I've tried installing several different webcam drivers/software from the support website, as well as a full system restore to when I first booted it up, to no avail. Any help?

Answer:Z70 webcam not working

Even after a full OneKey Recovery, it still does not work nor appear in device manager. Any help please?

Alright, so, I have no idea where to ask this question.. so I just asked it here. But, anyways, my laptop has a webcam built in it, and I've never had a problem with it up until now. I've had it for over a year. Now, when I open the webcam, it displays a lime green screen. I have tried re starting my computer, opening and closing the webcam, and even hitting it. Nothing is working. Please help me. I'm illiterate when it comes to technology.
 

Answer:Webcam not working. fml.

The application for your cam has a lime green screen or the whole notebook screen goes lime green when you start the cam up?

Not a good idea hitting the web cam in the lid there, have you uninstalled the drivers and re-installed them?

What make is the notebook? what have you done in the way of updates/adding programs, since this problem started?

Question: Webcam not working

Built-in webcam not working... My webcam is not working properly. So I checked the ArcSoft Webcam Companion 4 to see if my camera was connected. It said "A webcam was not found or is not working properly. Please click Connect button and try again." So I click on the Connect button and it tells me "Camera not found. The camera is either being used by another application or is not connected. Make sure the cam is connected and working properly.I have tried installing Intel USB 3.0 from the official network of Sony Vaio but that also didnt work out.I have checked for windows update too." I have no idea what to do!

My laptop is Sony Vaio E series SVE15115EN. I use Windows 7 Home Basic (64 bit).

I have purchase Logitech HD c270 webcam. This webcam requires 1 GHz but my system is 890 GHz. It is installed on my computer but not fully and it is not working on skype as well. Please guide my how i can resolve this problem. Thanks

Answer:my webcam is not working

Do you mean
This webcam requires 1 GHz but my system is 890 MHz.
If so, I don't think you will get your camera working on that PC - its simply too slow to cope with the data generated by the webcam.
