  • Hello everyone,

     

    Try installing your webcam's driver that is available for Windows 7 through your computer manufacturer's website. If the driver isn't able to install successfully, try using the compatibility troubleshooter to see if it can help the driver to install properly. The compatibility troubleshooter can be opened by:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section
    • Select Search
    • Type Compatibility
    • Click Settings in the right column
    • Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

     

    Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver. You will likely want to choose the choice for This program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won't install or run now when it is given if the latest driver is only applicable to a different version of Windows.

     

    Hope that helps.

  • I am having the same problem with Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t.  The Win 7 Drivers do not work to reinstall.  Is there a solution?
