According to info its a Ricoh webcam driver from hp is http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&softwareitem=ob-38767-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
it might be it might not be i am not 100% sure
best thing to do is get the hardware ids of the devices in question find the chips used in pc and there shall be likely an xp driver on an older model i think dv1000t CTO some drivers might apply not all.

If you upgrade your operating system like from windows xp to windows vista, you need to install new hardware driver for your computer like for LAN, webcam, WAN and others because the old driver is only compatible with the old operating system and not with VISTA operating system. Solution would are, download webcam and WAN driver for Windows Vista and install it into your computer. Don't just upgrade your computer because the configuration is not the same with the old operating system. If problem still exist, just upgrade the service pack from 2 to 3. There is available install for upgrading the service pack of each operating system. and surely all your hardwares will function.
try to download belarc advisor software. Run this in your vista OS and send it to me so I can check your hardware specs. This is the only way to avoid problems in the future or before you start the formatting.
first of all you will have to format your laptop cause when you have vista u cant install xp with it u will have to install xp first and then install vista about the driver u will have to do some settings in cmos setup and will have to change hdd type that will solve your driver problem so first install xp and then install vista regarding drivers for xp u will have to visit hp website and chat with a online technical person and ask him to mail you the link for drivers for xp
if you have installed vista and change it to xp, you should first delete or reformat your current OS (Operating System) which I believe is the ur vista.
-insert your xp disk then press F8
-click format or delete files ( i don't know the exact message that will appear on the screen)
-then install windows XP (just follow the instruction that you will see on the screen)
You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
