HP Pavillion dv6617tx Webcam Issues?? Please Help !!

[ Edited ]

Ok

about 3 months ago everything was sweet when i first tried using the inbuilt 1.3mp camera its got and i recorded some video with audio in QP and took some shots in YouCam. Monday, i try using it again in QP and i cant find where it is. Long story short it comes up as an Unknown device in "Device Manager". Ive found hundreds of articles on the net about it, tried installing those acer drivers, did a full system restore. But still, it doesnt work !!!
I looked on the HP Support & drivers section and there was none for this model of notebook. Also downloaded some drivers from a few different HP notebooks and still no success. Found the usbvideo.sys driver in the system32 driverstore and tried that. It said it wasnt compatible with x64 system.
Very very frusterating, please Help!
Thanks in advance !
