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.
