Windows 7: Turn on Travelmate p658-m webcam

I had already encountered the list of 27 Win7x64 drivers for my laptop. No camera driver. The Device Manager tells me there is one and that the driver is by Microsoft dating back to 2006 and that the device is operational.
An online "chat" with ACER (I think it was a human being) showed that they do not provide any application software for the camera. Third party sources are all there is.

Okay. So you'll have to use software similar to what I'm using. All it needs is a capture capability. Here's a free one-

Video Capture Software. Video, Webcam or Screen Recorder

I'm sure there's a lot more out there.

Debut did not work. I'm starting to think that the camera is defective. The device manager tells me that the camera is an HD WebCam, which appears to be a name used by Logitech. Upon chatting with them they stated that they have no dealings with embedded devices and that I should look to ACER.
I'm ready to give up.

It did work. My mistake.
Problem solved.
Thank you.

I don't know who you talked to but they were really out to lunch. They should read their own description at the website.

I'm glad it worked.
