Hi AroundAgain I thought I had asked this question before but was not sure so I went though all my posts up untill the beginning of this year and never saw it so apologies so now have to remember what I did

Hi again AroundAgain have just looked at my old post I clicked on the link posted by sillbill and that does not help and neither does my manual if you can call it a manual and cannot remember what I did.Cannot find anything on the Laptop about a webcam.

Just remembered that I had a program called Lifeframe on my laptop which is something to do with the webcam.I just entered Lifeframe in start then search and installed Lifeframe but now when I click on it it says the model does not support lifeframe.Can someone explain.

It is a Asus K73E which according to the small booklet I got with it is a notepad not sure what the difference is.

I installed lifeframe 3 today and got the message when I clicked on it that this model does not support lifeframe I then uninstalled it and installed lifeframe 2 and then got this message lifeframe 2 runs on Asus laptops only so where now. I did click on john bunyans link which did work and took he photo but could not work out how to save the photo to a particular folder.I checked my old posts back as far as Jan this yearbut did not see that post did not realise it was so far back.

Try an older version of Youcam. Link .... be careful which green link you choose obviously. It's free and during installation select a custom install so you can untick boxes or decline extra programs/toolbars. The norm today really.
