    The 'Imaging' folder is the Device Manager
    I have just done a check with my plug-in webcam and the 'Imaging' folder is hidden when the webcam is not plugged in
    Still in 'Device Manager' click the 'View' tab and check the 'Show hidden devices'
    When the devices are shown look for the tell tale driver alert ( yellow circle or triangle with ! inside)
    I would expect you to find one against your cam driver
    Failing that - I suggest you contact Compaq customer support for detailed help

Need Webcam Drivers

Was the computer connected to the Internet with a LAN cable when you installed Windows 7. During the Windows 7 installation Windows will automatically find and download the drivers.
The HP/Compaq WEB site may have a WEBcam driver for your model laptop.
If all else fails then try installing Windows 7 again and make sure the laptop is connected to the Internet before you start the installation.

Webcam not working

First you might go to Device Manager, right click your hardware device in the list and select Update Driver Software; then click Search automatically for updated driver software.Drivers on the Windows Update site are directly provided by hardware manufacturers. Microsoft tests drivers in various environments before they are published.
If it does not work on your issue, I'd suggest you installing the Vista driver in Compatibility mode. Remove and rescan that hardware device in Device Manager, right-click on the driver executable/installer file -> Properties and select the Compatibility tab; click the checkbox before Run this program in Compatibility mode for option and select Windows Vista in the list-down box; then try installing the device driver. In addition, you can use the Windows XP driver for testing.

In between understand that Windows 7 is a new operating system and whole driverstore has been reprogrammed; you might wait for another period of time till the retail version is released and push the vendor company to upgrade their device driver.
