Idont have the cd to down load my web cam ( a4tech qc passed 1) please help me

Hi this is a simple one, use google search and type in the exact name of your webcam and the words Driver download...... Or go to the manufacturers website and download one, make sure that you obtain the right driver for your operating system too, XP Vista Win 7, then once downloaded simply install it and your webcam should be all ready to use.

I want to install driver for webcam because its not working in windows 7 from where i can get this driver?

You will have to go to the manufacturer web site look at the cam name and model and go to the site and click on drivers or support links and find the driver you need and install it do what it says to do and this is about it. Now make sure that you grab the Win 7 driver if there is any support for 7 for it. If not get the Vista driver all you can do it try it to see if it will work with Win 7 it should. So if your cam reads Microsoft Web Cam then go to and go to their drivers this is just an example. Since you did not post what brand your cam was we can only guess at this point.

If you have the installation disc for this cam you can use this and install the driver for it from there. I hope this gives you a better idea on how to do this. Thanks for using FixYa! John

How to download webcam drivers

Make sure your computer is on and you have an active internet connection. Do not connect the webcam to your computer yet.

Look on your webcam for the name of the manufacturer and a model number. Write it down for future reference.

Go to the manufacturer's website, and choose the "Support" option. At this point, you will be asked to give the webcam name and style number.

Within the "Support" menu there is often a "Downloads" option. Select the "Downloads" option.

Download the driver for your webcam. This will put the driver on your computer, just like the installation CD would. Save the driver to your desktop where you will easily find it.

Open the webcam driver file, and follow any download or installation instructions.

Connect your webcam to your computer, and enjoy.

Good luck.

Stillazation of webcam with out stillation cd

As you know mandarin/chinese and I do not. For most devices when I am looking for a driver I go to the manufacturers web site look for links about technical support, support, downloads, drivers and armed with a model number and my operating system name quite often I find what I am looking for. Hopefully, it may be similar for this chinese company.
