    WebCam failure, driver updating


    Device Manager shows the two Sensors OV2 680 to be failing, but then reports that 'the best drivers are already installed'. I recall that I should now remove them and restart, when the required drivers will then be automatically installed. Before I do I want to check that I have got this right. I would appreciate confirmation (or otherwise) for this.

    You should check for new driver from webcam manufacturer website.

    I have no info on the manufacturer, other than the tablet PC itself which has webcams.

    Is the procedure I asked about not correct?

    Driver could be corrupted uninstall it then restart to let Windows install new driver.

    OK ---- thanks. I have also posted a query via the DoALL Cube website, which has improved a lot since I bought the machine.

    As I expected I got no response from the manufacturer but the uninstall / reinstall procedure worked OK so thanks for the advice.
