Re: presario c700/--c740em webcam make

hi paul have read the downgrade have all drivers in and working but guess what still no webcam driver

 

so to me it looks like there is no webcam driver available for my hp laptop for xp/vista/win7 but here must be because it was working ok with the factory image before on vista so i dont understand why hp dosent list the driver on the website ,

it just dosent make sense???????

Re: presario c700/--c740em webcam make

You may be able to order recovery media from HP, see:

Or if you just want to find driver for it (I am not sure it has Windows 7 drivers, as the notebook is not officially Windows 7 supported). Since you do have a "unknown device" in device manager, what is the hardware ids? (ritght mouse and select properties, in Details tab, "Hardware Ids" in Properties drop down, get the VID_ and PID_ values,
