I just bought this laptop recently. Looked up the settings and it said that laptop doesn't support face recognition. Is it some driver I have to install or it's just incompatible??

It is not compatible.

This model does not include the required kind of Webcam needed for "Hello Face".

"Face" requires an IR camera.

Look the results for “WEBCAM”
