Windows 7: Laptop Camera Installation question.

Laptop Camera Installation question.

I have a MSI CR620 Laptop, that's a bit older.
I had Windows 7 Home Premium on it when I first got it, and everything worked great. Then I installed Windows 8.1, then later Windows 10, and now I reformatted, and installed Windows 7 Pro x64.
Did every single possible Windows update a bunch of times, and check several times for new updates and nothing new.
HOWEVER, my webcam that is built into the laptop is not showing up in Device manager, and I have tried everything I could, even with Snappy Driver, and Driver Pack to see if I could get the web cam working.
On MSI's drivers page for this CR620 (MSI Global - The best gaming gears maker in the world) under camera it says "This device uses the native driver bundled in operating system".
May someone please help me out?

Well, I found the solution to this after 6 months, lol, all I had to do was press Fn + F6 to get it turn on.
