    I thank you for that advice but now it seems I can't find my model on the search support on the ASUS website. Can you help me further?

    Link to your laptops driver page:
    K50IJ | Laptops | ASUS Global


    The latest drivers are for Windows 7. These should install fine, but you need to know if you are running Windows in 32 bit or 64 bit.

    You also need to know which brand of camera you have in the laptop: Azurewave, Suyin , Chicony. You could find this in your products documentation.

    I really honestly don't know what kind it was. It was already on my laptop when I had bought it back in 2010. I have Windows 10 now and I think it's a 64 bit, but I don't know for sure. I'm not really all that Computer savvy.

    To check Windows version:
    Start > Settings > System > About > and look at the "System Type" line

    To check webcam manufacturer:
    Using Cortana or Search, type Device Manager > go to Device Manager
    Find the item Camera > Expand it
    Right click on the camera device shown > choose Properties
    Go to the Details Tab
    Click the down arrow on the Property Box to see all listings
    Click on "Hardware ID's (usually 3rd one down)

    On the first line you will see a long string on characters. We only need these:
    • VEN_xxxx
    • DEV_xxxx

    Where xxxx is your unique identifying numbers.

    Post those here, as well as the Windows version, and we can help you out
