webcam does not work after installing windows 7

Hello,
I've done everything that I could do to re install my webcam back after my brother installed windows 7 for me but nothing works..
I've been reading and looking for drivers for the past month and i've come to the conclusion that there's nothing to do.
If someone could prove me wrong ?

Please post the make and model of the webcam you are having trouble with. How is it connected to your Windows 7 computer? USB? Have you looked at Device Manager to see if it recommends further action? Has Windows Action Center prompted you about a driver for your webcam? I'm sure we can get it working. We are the foremost authority on Windows 7 anywhere -- except *maybe* Microsoft

Hello Baarod,

Here is the model of my webcam: HP Pavilion dv6000
My webcam is integrated to my laptop... and I did look in device manager but still nothing to do! I also clicked on Imaging devices then clicked right on add legacy hardware but nothing happened..

Yes. In most cases any Vista driver will work on Windows 7 without having to use compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

to install them. Even some XP drivers depending on the hardware can be used, only in most cases they do need to be installed using compatibility mode.
