Hello,

My internal Web cam stopped working after Win 7 install on Dell XPS M1210. I went to Logitech and they said that they do not have drivers for Windows 7.
No camera is identified in the Device Manager. What can I do?


Thank you

you can try compatibility mode. You can also check the web cam manufacturers web site for windows 7 drivers.

thank you, I went to the Logitech website and the driver was for Vista not 7 and tried to install using compatabiblity mode with no luck. Is there a trick to installing in compatibility mode?

Thanks

not really, it either will or will not work. Ive only had about 50% success rate with it myself, you just may have to wait until they release a driver for it.
