Ok using win 7 64 bit on my Asus lap top.


Have a logitech web cam C170 that i am using because i can move it about ; but when i plug it in to the 2.0 or 3.0 usb

port all it might work for an hour or two then it stops its very flakey and i will get " usb device not reconized " but then it next day it works after tryiny 4/5 times in and out . 


I do have an asus web cam built in and wonder if the asus / logitech web cams might be in conflict ?


I have deleted the asus cam from device manager numerious times but it just gets re installed at next boot up ; i have used MS search at start menu and ultra lite search to find all Asus folders but nothing comes Up ! ?


So how do i remove 100 % of the asus camera and keep and get reconized my logitech ?  !



So need the help thanks a bunch  -  -

What software are we using to employ the webcams? Usually there is the option to choose what cam will be used as default....

Also: Are the correct drivers installed for this web-cam? >

If one wishes to remove the ASUS webcam; when uninstalling the driver - look for the option to delete the software as well:



May be worth a shot to just disable the device in Device Manager: Right-click > Disable.
