I recieved a webcam with no brand name, no model number, or even any writing on it.  I need to get a driver for it; Is there any way possible to find one?  (Maybe a program that helps me search online for a driver).  I can't believe there are no markings on this webcam, but it looks very generic and cheap. Any ideas? I also attached a picture of my webcam if someone recognizes it, please email me.

Hello and Welcome to MyTechSupport.ca

Sorry, without any information we cannot possibly know what type/model your webcam is.
Is it listed in the Device Manager as an unknown device?

so it turns out, the third time I try to have windows install a driver for my webcam, the driver successfully installs.  It says it's an argus dc1512.  weird, but it works now.  Thanks.Tongue
