Windows 7: Windows 7 can't use my webcam after reinstall

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

Let's see, it worked on XP and Windows Seven, not on Windows 8 or Ubuntu. Yes?
You reinstalled W7 and it doesn't work but you installed 64 bit instead of 32 bit.
Have I got this all correct? Do you still have Ubuntu installed in dual boot?

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

I didn't say it worked on Ubuntu, i just said i had ubuntu in parallel to Win7. No, i don't have it anymore and i didn't install an x32 OS because my system only sees 3.25 GB of RAM on x32. I prefer to not use the camera than not use 750 MB of ram.

I just finished telling you that some of your RAM is apportioned to hardware and even showed you the chart to look and see! Did you see it? Hello?
