Windows 7: No webcam detected on HP Pavilion dv6701us laptop

Windows 7 Ultimate
No webcam detected on HP Pavilion dv6701us laptop

Hi, just upgraded a client's HP Pavilion dv6701us laptop from Vista to 7 32-Bit.

Did a fresh install, activated Windows 7, Windows Update works just fine.

Installed almost every update, but I can't get the webcam to work on here.

I think I'm missing webcam driver.

Checked HP's site for the driver, only shows Cyberlink Youcam in the driver and software list.

This is the laptop

These are the drivers & software for it.

Please help.

Hi 0080900, Have you had a look here Fixing Webcam After Changing the Operating System HP Pavilion dv6701us Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)= Also have you gone to device manager and tried updating the drivers from there ? HP only offered drivers up to Vista for this PC so installing the drivers in compatibility mode is the way to go :)
