Problem getting proper image from webcam!!!

by flame_bone08 / May 14, 2010 5:11 PM PDT

I'm using Asus K40AB series laptop which I bought last year. I'm using window XP at that time and the webcam working properly.

But recently, i format the laptop and install window 7 (ultimate). The webcam driver already installed but the webcam not working properly. It still display image, but the image is inverted. I mean, for example, my mouth's image at the top, and my hair is at the bottom of the screen. i Already reinstall the driver, but the problem remain the same.

I hope any body can help me. Sorry for the broken english. Not so good in english =)
