My only suggestions relate to going to the web site for your Apex camera and contacting support for help, or looking for a download location on their site for drivers, specifically for Win 7. And for looking to see whether the application itself has a compatibility option to make it 'retro-fit' to an earlier version of Windows, like XP.
Unfortunately, there are a number of types of hardware of many different brands which never got compatibility with Win 7. Microsoft has a Hardware Compatibility List which you can find by doing a search on their web site. You might want to check the list to see whether the camera can be made compatible.
So, begin with the web site and see what you can find.
Then try for the compatibility option:
You must right-click on the icon for the application for the Apex camera, then click on properties to see whether there is an option to change the compatibility to an older (XP) version of Windows. That may make the camera work. You will know pretty quickly because if you right click on the icon, and click on properties, there will either be a "compatibility" tab or not.
You maybe able to download it from the Acer WEB site. Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: - http://www.acersupport.com/drivers_download.aspx
ou have to find the software from control panel and look for add/remove programs(xp) or programs and features(vista) or programs (win 7). uninstall software and make sure to remove all programs associated with the software that is asking for a disk.
2nd posible slution
Click on start and look for run (xp) or search right above start for vista or win 7. type in %temp% then click on okey or enter. once temp folder popped up. Press on ctrl A or highlight everything to select all files. delete all files from temp. note: there are some files that will not be deleted just ignore them if a message box appears. this procedure will eliminate unwanted softwares that were saved from temp folder during initial installation.
3rd posible solution
Some programs have removal tool or removal utily that can be downloaded from the web. search from google and download the software to uninstall it completely from your pc and will not leave a mark of the unwanted software.
ex. (norton removal tool)
Whar kind of OS do you have? Some web cams will not load with win 7. You need to got to the Radio shack web site to manually search the site for the drivers needed in the support area. I have the same problem with a creative live pro web cam (0884). And it isn't supported under win 7 while win xp pro does support it. Goo dluck! Email; me the model number and brand name of yor web cam and the OS of the machine you use, and if it is a 64 bit, 32 bit (or 86 Intel), and I will track down your drivers for you. OK?
please check out in my computer systems device manager if anything in the sound section is in red or yellow remove it. unless win xp was made for your laptop the drivers are not there. you need to go to compaq web site and download your drivers.
you dont mention the drivers you need, you dont get drivers for software as you say, but if you mean the motherboard drivers, you will have to find out the maker of your board then search the relevant makers web site for drivers.
The only problem you may come across is that the bios may have a different version for Vista than that of what you need for XP so there may be some problems stting up the motherboard drivers.
