    HP M6 DV6 Truevision Webcam not recognized/installed.

    anyone had this problem? HP's support site for the specific model M6-1035 lists no driver for the webcam. it was there under windows 7 but I don't recall ever deliberately installing a driver for it - I assumed win7 had it.
    windows 8.1 does not. nothing in 'devices', nothing under device manager, and no driver listed on the HP support site. the latter is not surprising since they don't provide a host of drivers for the laptop.
    no keyboard-specific drivers [like for the function keys etc], wrong firmware for optical, and other small things

    anyone found a generic cam driver that will function?

    Had the same problem with the webcam on a friends DV7-7000 I reloaded .
    The fix was to down load and install the YouCam software .
    This link is for the HP download page for your M6-DV6
    Software & driver downloads HP Pavilion m6-1035dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP® Support
    Scroll down to Software , Multimedia (2) open it and download the cyberlink youcam software and install it . You should be good to go .
