Re: Hp webcam 101

Windows 7 installation should install the webcam driver.

 

Yes you will need software installed to use the webcam in most cases.

 

Once W7 is installed and flash player is also installed, go to this page and test the camera.

Before you install Ultimate, backup the "swsetup" folder, this may have some of the HP software installers, possibly the one for youcam.

Re: Hp webcam 101

The webcam driver bundled with  g72-b60us should be pickedup by Windows 7 automatically using its built in drivers. Here is the link to Cyberlink Youcam for Windows 7:

If it does not show in device manager it means there is something wrong with the webcam or the cable that connects it to the motherboard, parts need to be replaced.

Re: Hp webcam 101

Try this:

 


Use device manager to manually install the webcam driver, Open Device Manager, right click on the unknown image device and select "Update Driver" then "Browse my computer for driver software", then "let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" then click the "Have Disk" button, then click the "browse" button, browse to "C:\Windows\inf" folder and find "usbvideo.inf" and select it , then hit OK, drivers should load.
