I recently reinstalled Windows 7 on my IdeaPad u150. However, it seems that the integrated webcam cannot be found and I continue to see an unrecognized USB device in device manager (said that that there was a generic error code 43). I was hoping to discover that there was a bios update for the u150 that might help, but i'm not seeing anything.
Anyone else run into this problem and find a resolution?

I've tried installing the camera driver a few times, with 1 of 2 results:
1) I get the "this program may not have installed correctly" dialog
2) the installation program simply exits - no success or failure message
I haven't installed chipset drivers because I could not find any that were deployed onto the driver partition that was created on the machine before it shipped and the only chipset drivers on the Web are for older versions of Windows and are (more importantly) 32-bit.

nope - again, there were no chipset drivers on my drivers folder - and the link you supplied doesn't have any chipset drivers that look like a good fit for win7 x64. Just to be thorough, I tried running the camera setup again using 'run as administrator' - but same result (the 'this program may not have installed correctly' dialog.

just tried - fn+esc appears to do nothing, but i used the key-chord anyway and tried reinstalling the camera driver. I then tried the process again in the event that i had disabled it the first time.
Both times, camera driver dialog appeared to be doing some work and then just disappeared. Camera is still not recognized.
