Windows 7: Where can I find a driver on my laptop?

Where can I find a driver on my laptop?

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NS30E/W, on which I am running Windows 7.

Some days ago, I have installed a new driver for the Sony Visual Communication Camera (Motion Eye) webcam and the device worked fine. However, today the device has stopped working (Code 43) and it now states that it is using the older version of the driver.

Can anyone tell me where I can find the new driver files on my laptop, so I can manually locate them? I have installed them via DriverMax, so am not quite sure where the driver is located.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I don't even have any Imaging Devices in my Device Manager. What I don't get either is that it is a USB device although it is an inbuilt camera?

Restore it back to the day your webcam was working.

What was the problem with Sony Update center? (as you used DriverMax)

Go with The Howling Wolves's advice, restore back.
