I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

HP Mini 311 Webcam Drivers for Windows 7 Solved

I got a refurb 311 with a fresh install and the webcam wouldn't work. Skype and other programs didn't see it.

I looked and if it's on HP's site, it isn't obvious.

So, long story short, do all the Windows Updates, and then uninstall the webcam.

It will now install a driver and work, if it goes like mine.

The big clue was in Device Manager, it said 'No driver Installed' but it didn't have the traditional yellow exclamation point.

Use the 'Scan for Hardware Changes' and it should see and install a driver.
