I have an Asus SmartTab tablet with Mathematica 9 on it. When I run ImageCapture, nothing shows up in the image window. Originally running this completely crashed the entire OS forcing a reboot, but I have done some updates since. Now I just get the blank window effect.
Does anyone have any ideas on if this is fixable, or has had this happen?

This works for me on both Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update. –  RunnyKine Apr 18 '14 at 18:32
Works for me as well on a Dell XPS12; however on a fresh reboot and new kernel I get $Aborted the first time I run ImageCapture[] and need to execute the cell a 2nd time to get it to function. –  bobthechemist Apr 18 '14 at 19:33
At least you get some effect. On my system Mathematica is telling me straight away "ImageCapture::notsupported: Image acquisition is not supported on Unix". I guess your best chance is to contact the support of Wolfram. –  halirutan Apr 18 '14 at 19:52
This behavior could be due to a buggy graphics or image capture driver, or a hardware fault of the graphics chip/camera. Since there ought to be no way for Mathematica to crash the entire OS, I am going to hazard a guess that the problem doesn't lie with Mathematica itself, and therefore the question is probably not answerable at this site. –  Oleksandr R.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a software or hardware problem that is most likely not directly related to Mathematica. –  Oleksandr R. Apr 19 '14 at 23:28
