    I have an Asus laptop. This is quite annoying I know there is a way to flip it but I don't know how to get to that.

    I can't believe the things that happen to you and your friends Cheater. :ouch:

    Okay, try this. I think it will work - do a "head stand" in your computer chair ;) Should look normal now :p

    cheater87, do you have an Asus utility called Lifeframe?

    According to this Troubleshooting page (click on the Notebook image, go to the 2nd page, look for Camera Malfunction), it states that you can set the image rotation with this utility.

    Can you post your Model so perhaps another member, who has the same Asus notebook, might be of help?

    You do realize this does not sound right coming from a very frequent poster of Wilders.

    Right Click My Computer, select Properties - it should be there.

    Well Windows 7 is set up a bit differently then XP so its a bit harder for me to find. Also the bottom of the laptop is a bit scuffled.

    IIRC when I had Ubuntu on this laptop I could flip it. But can't figure out how with Windows.

    cheater87, if you can't find the driver, I believe it's time to visit their ASUS Product Forum and post your support issue.

    Tried to sign up but for some reason Gmail isn't letting me go to the link in the validation email.

    Same issue with my asus notebook when I decrapified (reinstall windows without pre-installed crap) it. You can fix this by replacing stock Windows 7 driver with Asus supplied driver.

    According to you the model is K60IJ.

    Open http://www.asus.com/
    Navigate to Global > Asus Support Site > Download
    Product = Notebook > Series = K60 > Model = K60IJ > Search
    Operating System = choose your OS

    Open Camera sub menu and you will find various camera drivers.
    To download do not click on DLM link.
    Click on Global or China. Enter captcha. In case of unavailable download slots repeat until you succeed.
