Laptop webcam driver

So i've been digging very deep for the past few days to find some drivers for my laptop webcam but i can't seem to find it! Samsung's website doesn't have anything, 3rd party sites doesn't have anything, no one has the drivers. Would really appreciate it if somebody found the drivers for me.

On this site I found XP drivers for the camera I'm not sure if you could try them in compatible mode or not.

  1. Laptop cameras are all USB cameras. They connect to the USB bus on the motherboard
  2. Be more specific. What is the problem you're having with the webcam?
    • Do you see it in Device Manager? If yes, does it have a yellow icon or not? If you can't find it in device manager, you have a larger problem. It's not the cam driver
    • I downloaded the driver zip file and had a look inside. That latest "XP" driver also includes a Vista driver. What happens when you try to install it?

Hi Laith,
anything in/under your Cyberlink Youcam programs.
Found only a small comment on the web as its only an optional feature for your model.

I don't see it in device manager no, it doesn't show up as a problem.

What happens it that it says "A USB could not be found"

Windows doesn't need the device driver to detect plug and play hardware. It only needs the driver before it can use device functionality.

Windows can't detect your cam if
> Cam is turned off in BIOS (assuming cam has a BIOS option)
> Cam has been powered off (assuming it has an on/off switch or key press)
> Cam hardware has failed (unfortunately, have seen this happen too often)

That said, if cam hardware is detected, there should be some hint of it in Device Manager
  • Case 1: Something appears under "Other device" category. In this case h/w is detected but Windows can't find a suitable driver
  • Case 2: Cam is listed under Imaging devices. In this case h/w is detected and a driver has been installed
  • Case 3: Under USB category you see "Unknown Device" listed. This is the "USB Not Recognized" case. Hardware detected but Windows is unable to receive info that was burned into device firmware that identifies the device. Windows can't tell what the device is ("Device Unrecognized") see snapshot below

If there's no "hint" of your cam in Device Manager, you've checked BIOS and cam is powered on then cam h/w has very most likely failed

I don't understand, because it worked fine until i replaced my HDD.

Also uninstalling all my USB devices in device manager made me so i can't use any USB connections anymore. Help? I figured it out myself.
