Problem with audio and webcam on 'Asus T200TA' device

I have an 'Asus T200TA', which originally had windows 8, but now with Zorin installed, the webcam and the audio don't work. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi and welcome! Whilst not the same device as yours it would appear that in respect of your webcam it is not supported because hardware manufacturers only provide drivers for Windows. A lot of hardware drivers has had to be reverse engineered before getting submitted to the Linux kernel which Zorin has no control over. It would appear the only solution open to you is to purchase an external webcam.

In respect of your sound issue, please open a terminal (Ctrl+ Alt+ T) and enter:

cat /proc/asound/cards

and post back the results.

"That Intel HDMI/DP LPE Audio often causes issues with the built in sound, so the first thing to try is to see if blacklisting it remedies the situation:


sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-hdmi-lpe-audio.conf <<<'blacklist snd_hdmi_lpe_audio'

Run that in the terminal then reboot and test your sound."

I think you should check for the drivers. Or check that you webcam and audio device is compatible with linux or not.
