HP Pavilion dv6000 built-in webcam not working after win 7 installatio

I have a laptop from HP, Pavilion dv6000, and the webcam, which is built-in webcam and it always worked fine under windows xp. Now it does not work and I do not even see it listed anymore under Device Manager.
How do I fix that or do I need to go back to windows xp???

If it's not listed in Device Manager then it looks like it's not compatible with Windows 7.

Have you checked HP's support site to see if there are any Windows 7 drivers for the webcam?

If all else fails you can always buy a webcam that is compatible with Windows 7.

Yes, I hae gone to HP support site and have downloaded a number of things that I thought would re-establish my webcam, but all to no avail.
The question is now whether I should revert back to windows xp (if I even can) or buy a separate webcam.

Just buy a new webcam, it's a lot less trouble than re-installing XP.

Make sure though that it is compatible with Windows 7 - there should be a sticker confirming it on the webcam packaging.
