    G74SX Webcam Driver

    Did anyone here install a driver for their G74SX or is it just the generic MS driver.

    OR, if you haven't done a clean install yet, could you check what driver is installed in Device Manager >> Imaging Devices >> Camera name (whatever it is) >> Right Click, Properties, Driver
    Read the User's Manual for more info.



    G74SX-A1 BIOS 203
    Intel 6230 WiFi/BT
    LG E2350 LED LCD Monitor
    Intel Series 510 120 GB SSD

    Both before and after my clean install, it's a generic Microsoft driver that has been installed. I have searched but couldn't find a better one.

    They have folders full of everything there! lol! They really ought to pay a guy some weekend overtime to just go through and junk all the old stuff. I realize that site isn't meant for the general public, but since they don't bother to update the product pages, we're kind of stuck using it. The least they could do is try to make it a little more navigable.

    (Apparently there are some models that do have specific webcam hardware and drivers available. I think some N73s do...and they provide "Azureware" drivers for it. I believe mine's just generic though. Don't really care....I never use webcams.)
