How to use Y560p webcam when you've changed OSes

Hi.

 

I swapped out the Windows 7 Home Premium that came with my Y560p for Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and now I can't seem to access my web camera.

 

I ahve installed the drivers that came with the original version of windows (EasyCamera 1.0.9.4) and the install completes successfully but yet, I can't find any program that will allow me to activate the camera. The camera is also not listed as a TWAIN source for image capture, which is odd.

 

Device Manager shows that the camera, manufactured by JMicron, has been installed and is functioning correctly.

 

How may I access my camera for image/video capture without installing additional 3rd party software?

make sure you activate the camera by pressing fn + esc first. if function keys not working, re-install power management.

also, you may need to install 3rd party applications.
